Post Buying or Selling a Business in North Carolina   Sat Aug 13, 2011 9:42 am

The State of North Carolina has experienced strong growth in the business sector and this trend is likely to continue for the next several decades. The exceptional small business fundamentals coupled with the high quality of life factors (mild climate, cultural activities, low cost of living, proximity to both the beaches and mountains, and number of professional sporting teams) has propelled North Carolina to the top position of nearly every list ranking which areas are the best to conduct business. The increasing demand for buying small businesses in NC has been a large factor leading to the tremendous success that business brokerage companies have experienced. Listed below are some of the notable accolades that North Carolina has received over the last several years.

* Raleigh was ranked #1 by Forbes.com as the Best Place for Careers & Business in 2011.

* In 2011, Site Selection magazine ranked Raleigh # 1 by Site Section for the best business climate, the ninth time out of the last ten years. With low businesses costs (18 percent below the national average), and the second highest net migration rate in the U.S. over the past five years, it's no wonder why Raleigh continues to receive this accolade.

* Builder Magazine has named the Raleigh-Cary area the healthiest of the 100 largest US housing markets in March of 2011.

* The Raleigh-Cary metro area was named the # 5 Strongest Job Market in the U.S. by Manpower in July 2010. Raleigh, as a component of the Research Triangle Park provides many opportunities for business expansion in the info technology, healthcare & biotechnology fields. The excellent base of talent and an expansive higher education system has made both Cary & Raleigh a haven for business expansion and steady job growth.
