Cary vs. Raleigh: where should you retire?

The Triangle area in North Carolina comprises the Raleigh-Cary and Durham-Chapel Hill Metropolitan Statistical Areas and the Henderson Micropolitan Statistical Area. Anchored by three major research universities -North Carolina State University, Duke University and University of North Carolina-, the Triangle has experienced huge growth in the last few years and for no small reason. This location is now one of the preferred destinations for a lot of retirees as well as young families due to its diversity, abundant job opportunities, low cost of living and beautiful landscapes, among many other factors.

But now that you’ve set your eyes on the Triangle as your retirement destination, here comes the big question: Which city is best to buy in? Both Cary and Raleigh are growing cities that offer citizens a high quality of life, security and diversity, but each of them has specific features that make them unique. 

North Raleigh’s established wooden areas allow its inhabitants to feel closer to nature and give a sense of serenity and isolation to retirees who prefer a peaceful retirement, without being too far away from shops and other commodities. Cary, on the other hand, has more life and a buzz without losing that village-like quality. 

Bigger lots can be found in Raleigh if a big house with a large yard is what you have in mind, but schools in Cary tend to have the best appraisal if your grandchildren’s education is your main concern, although schools in Raleigh are great, too. The cost of living in Cary, NC vs. Raleigh, NC is about the same, as well as the salaries. The housing prices and taxes are comparable in both cities. 

Whether you’re looking for a cottage-in-the-woods experience or a diverse city with lots to do, the Triangle area is equipped to suit everyone’s needs. Get in touch with the Corbinton team to see some of the neighborhoods in both cities (and hopefully, to pick your new home). Contact us now!
