Just from what I've studied, NC (especially the Charlotte and Raleigh metros) will continue to grow and prosper for decades to come due to the strong, diverse economies.

I wouldnt bet on that. it is getting to big for itself, they wont be able to manage it in awhile. We and a few others we know left alot due to the lack of decent paying jobs in our fields, I dont think it is really that diverse.

Where did you leave due to lack of decent paying jobs in your field? What field are you in? The Charoltte and Raleigh areas do have industries that stand out due to their presents in their communities (Charlotte in finance, racing technology, and insurance. Raleigh in R&D, education, and government), but they are diverse. There are industries that are not as widely seen that employ tens of thousands of others. In Charlotte, there is hi-tech manufacturing, call/help centers, R&D, and a 1.5 billion bio-tech that's being built NE of Charlotte. How long does the "boom" last? Of course, no one knows. All anyone can do is look at what we have in front of us and go from there. Atlanta's been going through their economic boom since the 60's. Most others hit a high, then drop off dramtically. But Charlotte and Raleigh are in a better position than most areas and that's a fact. Is it guranteed to stay that way? No, and I've never made that claim. There are no perfect areas. But I'll take our odds any day of the week!!!
