Raleigh Realtor Predicts Continued Growth of Home Values for 2018 & into 2019


According to Raleigh Realtor, Michael Porter, “the city is tipped to be one of the top areas for real estate growth in the US due to rising home values, steady growth of residents’ incomes, a strong job market and comparatively low unemployment rates.”

Recently voted the best place to live in North Carolina and the best big city in the Southeast, Raleigh offers a city that is family-friendly with welcoming Southern charm and has been slowly transforming into an important technology hub with a number of large corporations making Raleigh their head office including Cisco Systems, IBM Corporation, and Fidelity Investments. It’s also the capital of North Carolina (known as the City of Oaks), and, with an estimated population of 438,000, is the 42nd most populated city in the US.

The wealth of the city is evident in the average incomes (over $30,000 per annum for Raleigh residents, almost $2500 more than the US average). The median household income is over $64,000 per year (over $15,000 more than the rest of North Carolina) which means that Raleigh represents a wealth of opportunity for real estate investments, both for sellers and buyers with a median home value of over $250,000 and the value of homes increasing over 5% every year (5.9% in the past year, with 5.3% increase predicted for next year.)

About The Author

Michael Porter

I grew up in a small mountain town in Virginia called Christiansburg. Adjacent to Christiansburg is Blacksburg, home of the Virginia Tech Hokies. I graduated from Virginia Tech in Mechanical Engineering and worked as a project designer & manager for 14 years in the triangle area. During my time as an engineer, I began investing in rental property. I have bought and sold property in Durham, Cary, and Apex and have lived in each area. Over the years, my passion for real estate has continued to grow. Prospecting, buying, renting, renovating, and eventually selling most of my own properties has taught me how to enhance property value. Having hired many real estate agents prior to getting my real estate license, I understand what my clients expect: global, national, and local exposure, a social media ad campaign, and a targeted market strategy to aggressively promote the listing to qualified buyers. By combining my team’s Call Back “Now” policy and our Transaction Management System, we keep our clients updated and worry free. Fortunately, and sometimes painfully, I’ve had to learn many lessons through the school of hard knocks. My goal is to help my clients avoid these costly, aggravating, and time-consuming delays that could spoil their objective.
