If Yogi Berra Was Still Making Quips Today He Would Have Something to Say About Raleigh

Having just posted “The Accolades for Raleigh Keep Pouring In,” there is more. And channeling Yogi, who once famously said about someplace: “Nobody goes there anymore; it’s too popular.”

And so it is that Raleigh just got some more shout outs.

California-based employment finder Glassdoor recently issued a report that ranks Raleigh as the No. 1 job market in the U.S. Its 25 Best Cities for Jobs report was based on three factors: hiring opportunity, cost of living and job satisfaction. Data sources included the U.S. Office of Management & Budget, Zillow and Glassdoor’s salary data research and company reviews.

Kansas City MO was second, Oklahoma City third, Austin fourth and Seattle fifth.

In a separate report, CoreLogic has published data showing Raleigh as the second most-active market for new home sales in the U.S., as a percentage of sales. Based on activity during 12 previous months ending January of this year, new home sales accounted for 21 percent of all the homes sold in that 12-month period. Rollout the “Builders Welcome” mat!
