There is definitely a buzz around Raleigh.

 

You can feel it in all aspects of the real estate market these days.

I just saw a great post from DownTown Raleigh Alliance about some additional awards the Raleigh Area has recently won:

#2 Smartest City in North CarolinaAmerican City Business Journals – November 2011

  • Cary and Durham also ranked very high
  • Chapel Hill received additional recognition for the smartest communities with population less than 99,999.

 #4 Best City for Technology Jobs -Forbes.com – November 2011

  • Technology jobs outpaced the overall rate of unemployment
  • Raleigh rated #4 for this list

 #5 Top 10 Metro Areas for Growth Since the RecessionUrban Land Institute - October 2011 

  • In just 10 percent of the nation’s 50 largest metropolitan areas, total economic growth exceeded 10 percent since 2007.
  • Raleigh North Carolina is #5 on this list

I find this news very encouraging.  I am seeing an increase in Buyers and Sellers, and the good news is only helping homeowners on both sides of the transactions in Raleigh. 

How about you?  Have you seen an increase in activity in your area also?
