A real estate blog has ranked Holly Springs and Cary in its top-10 list of most affordable places to live in North Carolina.
To come up with its rankings for towns with populations larger than 10,000, the Movoto Real Estate Blog considered several factors, including median home price, adjusted median income, unemployment rank, cost of food and cost of utilities.
Holly Springs came in at No. 7 on the list. The town has an adjusted median income of $79,439, according to Movoto. Although the cost of living ranked slightly higher than the national average, costs related to shopping and dining are “downright cheap,” according to the blog.
Cary ranked No. 9, tied with Clayton in Johnston County. The median household income in Cary is $89,542, and the town is known for being safe and for having good schools, the blog states. The cost of living is above average.
The Town of Indian Trail near Charlotte topped the list.
Among Triangle towns, Knightdale and Garner also made the top-10 list.
