Gen Z

With its booming local economy, affordable living, and fantastic culture, it's not hard to see why Durham has become such a popular destination for Gen Z. Our real estate agents love telling clients about the great aspects of Durham. It's truly a great place to go to school, start a career, and raise a family. In fact, the Durham area was named one of the Top 30 Best Cities to Live in for Gen Z. If you're thinking about relocating, here are some reasons why the Bull City continues to grow year after year and attracts Gen Z homebuyers:

  • It Has A Great Job Market
    Recent college grads looking to settle down and start their career can benefit from Durham's booming job market. Research, development, finance, and medicine are top industries in the area with major employers including Duke University, Research Triangle Park, Fidelity, and IBM. The city is also appropriately nicknamed "City of Medicine" due to its 300+ medical and health-related companies, so it's a great location for medical professionals to start their careers. Additionally, both Google and Apple have announced new locations in the area.

  • It's Affordable
    Despite the area's population growth over the last several years, Durham remains an affordable place to live. The median home price in Durham has remained anywhere from 10 to 16% lower than the national average. Therefore, it couldn't be a better time to check out these stunning Durham homes for sale. Groceries, utilities, and transportation costs are also less than the national average. 

  • There Are Plenty Of Things To Do
    Catch a concert, Broadway performance, or comedian at the Durham Performing Arts Center, which hosts over 200 shows a year. In the spring and summer, it's a lot of fun to see a Durham Bulls Minor League Baseball game. The stadium is located right in town, so it's easy to make a night of it. Looking for something a little more relaxing? The Sarah P Duke Gardens is a beautiful, serene oasis in the middle of the city and the perfect place for a walk.

  • The Weather Is Perfect
    If you're looking to escape the cold, you'll enjoy short, mild winters in Durham. December temperatures are often warm enough to wear a t-shirt or play golf. The area gets minimal snow each year, and spring usually begins in early March. The city sees 220 sunny days per year, which is well above the national average. Summers are hot but tolerable.

  • It's Accessible
    Durham is a great place to live in and of itself, but young people love the convenient access to both Raleigh and Chapel Hill. Both cities are less than a 30-minute drive away. You could easily commute to Durham from one of these beautiful Raleigh homes for sale. Charlotte is also just a couple of hours away. Durham's convenient access to multiple cities makes it a desirable location for many Gen Z homebuyers.

It's no wonder people from all over the world move to Durham each year. For more information on living in our area, contact us today.
