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!
