Just a quick question. As a Realtor here in western NC I'm trying to get a better idea of where everybody is coming from and what has "really" attracted them to NC.

I'm moving there from Northern, NJ, quite near to NYC. To answer your question:

Drastically lower cost of living (even with lower salaries down there)

Sick of the rat race (I work in Mahattan every day, and I'd rather not run myself into an early grave)

Too much congestion where I live (people, cars, etc.)

People are more polite in NC, period

It's significantly more laid back in general

I moved from Boston 3 years ago to Wilmington. Good stuff here. Weather, cost of living, and NO CAR HORNS!

Sweetness.

The best motorcycle riding you can find (year around to boot).
Best year around weather pattern east of California.
I live in the foothills and get to look at the mountains every day.
We are both federally retired......no state income tax on pensions.
