Is retirement in North Carolina on your mind? Luckily, our state is one of the top places to retire in the nation, ranking as one of the best places for retirement in 2021 and Raleigh in particular is one of the best in the whole state! North Carolinians love to preach the good word of how awesome our state is. Let's take a look at some of the key factors concerning retirement in N.C.
Retirement in North Carolina comes with many advantages, including choosing from over 100 counties to situate yourself, each with its own local flair. Vacations or weekend trips will be no-brainers, with the Outer Banks on the coast and the North Carolina mountains out west. You could settle in one of these idyllic spots, or settle in Raleigh, where you're never more than a couple of hours away from a destination vacation. Enjoy the wild horses in Rodanthe, shop for pottery in Seagrove, or discover gorgeous views in Asheville. Have a vacation spot all year long when you live in Raleigh.
Cheaper cost of living
No high cost of living to be seen in NC, y'all! Our state is full of opportunity, priced fairly and with a stable economy. North Carolina's housing market is more affordable than most states—the average mortgage here is just over $1,300 per month. Cities North Carolina have been rated as the #1 place to rent and #3 city to buy a home. Relocators can rest assured they will not have to compromise their finances, safety, or lifestyle when moving to North Carolina as the housing market is always booming with a variety of locales to choose from, whether rural or metropolitan. Other realms of cost are comparatively lower than other states as well, such as healthcare, utilities, gas, and food.
We're partial to Raleigh, because we find it to be the truly perfect mid-size city in the nation. We're the most constantly growing city in America. Come grow with us!

If retirement brings you to North Carolina, rest assured that year in and year out our temperatures will keep you comfortable. North Carolina's southern hospitality is as warm as our climate, and our winters are far more temperate than that of other southeastern cities. Plan to dress light June through August, and keep a heavy coat handy December through February. The rest of the year calls for mild climates all around and North Carolinians love taking advantage of the pleasant weather. Settling in the western mountain regions of the state could bring more snow and cold temperatures, however, so our state is well equipped for the cold-lovers and snowbirds alike.
Not to mention, tax breaks!
We'll easily vouch for retirement in North Carolina because of all of the tax breaks seniors receive in the state. Compared to other states, there are no Social Security Income or State Estate Tax. Further, income taxes come at a flat rate that shows signs of continuing decrease, and there's a low corporate income tax. Enjoy your higher social security checks and generous payouts from your flat rate income tax. As a pro-business state, retirement in North Carolina can mean seniors may start up their own business after retiring from their career. Or, just take advantage of the money saved in your wallet!
