Chapel Hill Makes List of Best N.C. Towns for Young Families

Chapel Hill, where Briar Chapel is located, was recently ranked as one of the best places to raise a young family in North Carolina.

The analysis, conducted by Mike Anderson and published on NerdWallet, a personal finance website, considered five factors:
  • Quality of public schools
  • Median home values
  • Ongoing cost of home ownership
  • Average income
  • Economic growth
Here is what Mike had to say...

"Chapel Hill is a quintessential university town. It is home to 30,000 students, and benefits from all the cultural facets of college life: concert venues, plenty of fine-dining options and great shopping destinations are scattered around the city. While life may center around the university, jobs here are nevertheless diverse..."

When considering Chapel Hill's close proximity to the Research Triangle Park and other parts of the Triangle, with its excellent job market and ample entertainment opportunities, it's easy to see why so many families (and retirees!) are now calling this town home.

Come see for yourself what a great area we live in!
