Raleigh, NC is a Happy City

Raleigh, NC is a Happy City

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 18, 2018

Auston Grove, Raleigh, NCThe U.S. Declaration of Independence speaks about the “pursuit of happiness” as a universal right Everyone gets joy from different things, whether it’s family, friends, activities, entertainment or work. But what people might not realize is that where you live may also determine how happy you are.

Location plays a hand in how bright or gloomy our days are. For years, researchers have studied the science of happiness and found that its key ingredients include a positive mental state, healthy body, strong social connections, job satisfaction and financial well-being. However, money can only make you so happy – people who make $75,000 a year won’t get any higher satisfaction from more money.

As this study aims to illustrate, moving to a certain city may help you be more content. WalletHub drew upon the various findings of positive-psychology research in order to determine which among more than 180 of the largest U.S. cities is home to the happiest people in America. We examined each city based on 28 key indicators of happiness, ranging from depression rate to income-growth rate to average leisure time spent per day. Read on for our findings, methodology and expert commentary from a panel of researchers.

Raleigh, NC ranks 41 out of 182 top ranked cities.

Celebrate NC Beer Month in Raleigh

Celebrate NC Beer Month in Raleigh

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, April 04, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighNorth Carolina is for beer lovers. Craft breweries flourish famously in the mountains, with urban flair in the Piedmont and with character along the coast. The number of breweries stands at more than 250 statewide — it’s hard to keep an up-to-date count with new breweries constantly rising on the beerscape, but we know that North Carolina has the highest total between Pennsylvania and Texas.

Asheville, Raleigh, Durham, Charlotte, Hickory — all celebrate regional beer culture with festivals, beer weeks and other events. In April 2018, Visit North Carolina and the North Carolina Craft Brewers Guild will join forces to host NC Beer Month for its sixth year.

Why celebrate North Carolina beer? Because the state is one of the best for craft brewing with unique and exceptional flavors. Medals from the Great American Beer Festival and The World Beer Cup. Raves for Ninja Porter, Death by Hops, Black Radish and Papa Jade IPA. Beer to be tasted by the flight and savored by the session. Beer that abides by the Reinheitsgebot purity law and beer that innovates on a rich agricultural heritage.

If you live in an apartment in Raleigh, NC you may be interested on what our area has to offer NC Beer Month.

Raleigh

A brewery that launched in an airplane hangar. North Carolina’s first woman-owned brewery. A brewery born from a rickshaw company. Raleigh area brewers know something about thinking differently. And with more than 30 breweries all over the destination; plus, their presence at World Beer Festival Raleigh, welcoming 250 craft brews from around the country, and Brewgaloo, celebrating regional craft breweries, you can bet on a craft beer experience like no other in April. In Raleigh, the brewers are just as excited to share their passion and inspirations as they are for you to taste the beer.

Renting in an Apartment Community is A Great Idea for Many People

Renting in an Apartment Community is A Great Idea for Many People

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 29, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighHome ownership may not necessarily be for everyone. There are many factors as to why people choose to rent. One of the biggest reasons is the economy.

A lot of people are moving from homes to apartments because of the convenience and the price point. By living in an apartment community with all of the amenities renters are looking for without having to pay the premium prices of a home, is exactly why more people are renting.

The key word there: amenities. Those are the perks of renting at a particular property provided by apartment communities. Laundry, pools, fitness centers, and 24 hour maintenance and security, are just some of the features of different apartment homes. But the list doesn't stop there.

Some of the apartment communities will come with garages, other provide social events for their residents. Many are located in downtown areas or in areas where homes are not affordable.

Location and amenities are definitely important concerns when you are deciding where to rent, but when it all comes down to it your new apartment has to fit your budget.

There are varying floor plans to fit into many budgets. Whether the renter wants a studio, a 1 bedroom, a 2 bedroom, a 3 bedroom or even a townhouse there are styles to fit their needs and more importantly, their budget.

Another additional cost to keep in mind is renter's insurance, which may or may not be required by the apartment community, but is still a very good idea. Renter’s insurance is very inexpensive to get. Renter's insurance protects the renters belongings so if something like a fire does happen, they are protected, they're belongings are protected.

One last thing to look for when renting, especially when it comes to living in an apartment community, is to make sure the property is owned and operated by the same company. That helps ensure someone will be there for you, should the need arise.

Raleigh is Among the Best Cities in America to Live

Raleigh is Among the Best Cities in America to Live

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, March 15, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighDid you know that in 2017 North Carolina’s two largest cities were named among the best cities in America to live.

In an analysis of nearly 600 U.S. cities with populations of more than 65,000, finance website 24/7 Wall St. reviewed data in nine major categories: crime, demography, economy, education, environment, health, housing, infrastructure and leisure.

Raleigh was ranked No. 10 in America.

For 2017, Raleigh was listed with a population of 458,862, a median home value of $242,500, a poverty rate of 12.1 percent (putting the city in the bottom 25 percent), and the percentage of people with at least a bachelor’s degree at 50.8 percent (putting Raleigh in the top 10 percent of cities).

Raleigh is one of many fast-growing mid-size cities in North Carolina. Over the past 10 years, the population of Raleigh increased by 29.6 percent, the most of any city in the state other than neighboring Cary, and far more than the 7.1 percent national population growth rate.

Raleigh is located in the southeastern corner of the Research Triangle, a prospering area with three leading research universities and many high-tech companies. Raleigh itself is home to North Carolina State University and is a 30-minute drive from Duke University and the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill.

North Carolina has one of the largest brain gains – more college graduates are staying in the state than leaving – in the country. This has contributed to high educational attainment in cities across the state. In Raleigh, 50.8 percent of adults have at least a bachelor’s degree, far more than the 31.3 percent national share.

The website used census data, the FBI’s Uniform Crime Report, Bureau of Labor statistics, school test score data, Department of Education statistics, Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services data and more to determine the rankings.

Raleigh, NC: One of the Best Cities For Singles In North Carolina 2018

Raleigh, NC: One of the Best Cities For Singles In North Carolina 2018

Joseph Coupal - Wednesday, March 07, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighWe used science and data to determine which cities in North Carolina have the best set up for singles: no kids, no old people, and a lot to do. Are you trying to find love in North Carolina?

Or are you just looking to hook up?

Either way, we’ve got you covered here. At least, we’ll point you in the right direction – which is why you came here in the first place, right?

According to the Pew Research Center, the number of Americans who have remained single (not married) is growing. That means, people are dating a lot longer than they used to.

There are many reasons for that, including financial and cultural. And, we suspect smartphones and social media has a lot to do with it, too. After all, we’re all a lot more distracted these days.

If you live in North Carolina, there’s a pretty good chance there are a lot of singles in your area. The Tar Heel State ranks in the top 10 when it comes to number of people over the age of 18 who aren’t married, or in a serious relationship. That’s great news for people looking for their match.

So, where are the best cities for singles in North Carolina? We’ve got the answers here.

These are the best cities for singles in North Carolina. Try not to jump in the car with a dozen roses:

  • #3. Raleigh
  • #7. Durham
  • #8. Chapel Hill

If you live in or really close to one of these cities, and you’re single, you should probably get out more often. And stop staring at your phone. Just sayin’.

Raleigh, NC: Retirement is Affordable, Healthcare is Excellent, and Life is Good

Raleigh, NC: Retirement is Affordable, Healthcare is Excellent, and Life is Good

Joseph Coupal - Friday, March 02, 2018
  • Retirement is something to think about years before you get there.
  • Choosing the best place to retire in the US means weighing affordability, quality of life, activities, and healthcare.
  • WalletHub ranked the best US cities to live in retirement.
  • Many of the top cities are in states with warm weather.

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighDeciding where to live in retirement may be one of the last major financial decisions you'll make, and picking the right spot is important.

WalletHub set out to put worried minds at ease. The site used available data for the 150 largest US cities to find the best and worst places to lay your hat. We already looked at the worst cities for retirement, so let's take a look at the opposite: the best urban areas to live in your post-working life.

How people spend time when they don't have to go to the office every day tends to be a little different. Many dream of hours full of painting and golf, but there are more practical considerations to keep in mind too.

Along with the weather and nearby museums and tennis courts, reliable, accessible healthcare and affordable housing are important benchmarks when determining where to live in retirement.

WalletHub found that the cities below offered a great quality of life, good healthcare, and plentiful activities — all at an affordable cost.

WalletHub scored each city based on affordability, activities, quality of life, and healthcare. The four categories were weighted equally, and each city was given a total score and then ranked, with the highest overall score designating the best city. WalletHub used data for only the city, not the surrounding metro area.

We've included the total score (out of a possible 100), with a higher score denoting a better place to live, as well as its ranking out of 150 cities for each of the four categories, with a lower number being better.

19. Raleigh, NC

Total score (out of 100): 53.88

Rankings (out of 150 cities):

  • Affordability: 61
  • Activities: 48
  • Quality of life: 61
  • Healthcare: 6

Some Reasons to Move to Raleigh

Some Reasons to Move to Raleigh

Joseph Coupal - Thursday, February 22, 2018

Auston Grove Apartments in RaleighDiscover what makes the City of Oaks and its nearby communities best places to live

Raleigh, N.C.’s bustling state capital is known to residents as the "City of Oaks," you'll understand the nickname when you visit downtown. Oak trees line the streets and sidewalks, offering pleasant shady spots for window shopping, coffee drinking and patio dining.

1. Raleigh combines modern, urban living with traditional Southern flair.
