Great News Just Keeps Pouring In!! Raleigh Named the Nation’s #2 Boom Town!
Forbes.com slated Raleigh, NC as the 2nd best city positioned to grow and prosper over the next decade!
Job growth over the previous two years (during the recession) was used as a baseline to measure the long-term effects of the recession, weighing in at about 1/3 of the score. Demographic information was calculated for the remaining 2/3, including growth in educated migration, Raleigh, NC population growth, family formation (not sure I understand exactly how this was measured), and how attractive Raleigh is as a place to grow roots and start a business for immigrants (again not sure what how exactly this was comprised – but love it!)
In the Forbes.com article, Raleigh, NC was called an Economic Superstar! Raleigh has job-creation records among the best in the nation, ranks #1 city for families with young children, and offers the attractiveness of affordable housing and short commute times. Raleigh, NC is the perfect place to call Home.
One of my favorite parts of the article stated “People create economies and they tend to vote with their feet when they choose to locate their families as well as their businesses.”
Do you know where YOUR feet would be LOVED?… You guessed it – Raleigh, NC.
Raleigh, you make us proud.
