The Research Triangle is recognized nationally for a high quality of life for residents. It has a number of the top universities including UNC Chapel Hill, NC State University, NCCU and Duke University within its bounds and as a result, there are incredible museums, hospitals, and culture. Another byproduct of such wonderful educational resources is corporate and tech investment in the area and a great job market.

Many metropoles in the US are undergoing big shifts in how we use and value space, or occupancy.

It can be confusing to understand how occupancy, the job market, and how people are working, relate to real estate values, especially when real estate values for local sellers and buyers depend on the "at the moment" value. We would like to share insights on the state of development and projections on the Raleigh Durham area and how rankings nationwide for livability can mean for 2023 sellers and buyers.
