Relocation to Raleigh increases year after year, and many transplants are leaving Chicago to Raleigh for job opportunities and a change of scenery. With a lower cost of living, world class education, leading research and healthcare facilities and an international airport, Raleigh is an optimal choice for those looking to downsize or upsize their city living. Raleigh and the greater Research Triangle Park region of North Carolina is a major relocation hub in the Southeast, and we are still growing. Our job, business, and housing climates are steadily on the rise, making Raleigh the most desirable relocation locale for transplants from smaller cities, or larger cities like Chicago.

Raleigh is home to competitive job prospects in industries ranging from software to pharmaceuticals. We've even earned ourselves the name "the Silicon Valley of the Southeast"! Chicago and Raleigh are both known for their comparable landscape of job opportunities. Raleigh's tech sector, healthcare, and clean technology industries offer employment with exceptional benefits, salaries, and growth opportunities. Not to mention, Raleigh has gotten the attention of multinational corporations, and all-stars like GlaxoSmithKline, Apple, Amazon, Cisco, SAS, and IBM have their roots planted in Raleigh. Even more, tche greater Triangle area is home to dozens of universities and colleges including North Carolina State University, University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, and Duke University. Due to the relative low cost of class-A office space—an average of $24.63 per square foot in Raleigh’s central business district (CBD), compared to $41.79 in Chicago's CBD—Raleigh is an optimal city for incoming startups, digital nomads, and flagship opportunities!

Residents of Chicago will be blown away by the difference of climate in Raleigh. Our hot summers and temperate winters are far more tenable than the blustery, snowy winters of Chicago. Raleigh is close to the North Carolina coast, which is far different than the Great Lakes! Our Outer Banks and the collection of islands off the coast of NC are favorite destinations for locals every summer. Our mountain region is also always a favorite in the winter or summer time. Take a drive along the Blue Ridge Parkway in autumn for some of the most beautiful natural sights in the Southeast. Raleigh’s housing market is also affordable like Chicago—the average mortgage here is just over $1,300 per month. Raleigh has been rated as the #1 place to rent and #3 city to buy a home. Not to mention, you won't find any of that Chicago traffic here. Our interstates and freeways are steadily altered and reimagined for optimal traffic flows. Relocators can rest assured they will not have to compromise their finances, safety, or lifestyle when moving to Raleigh as the housing market is always booming.
