There are four areas in North Carolina that have grown tremendously over the last several years.Many people have been relocating to the Carolinas because of the mild climate, the strong economy, and quality of living.
One of these areas is Charlotte, NC. I am an agent in the Charlotte market where we had over 80,000 new people to our area last year. As a result new construction has been booming in Mecklenburg County and adjoining counties including Lancaster and York County South Carolina.
A second area of high growth is the Research Triangle in North Carolina. This area includes Raleigh, Durham and Greensboro. Again the reasons that people are attracted to this area are mild climate, strong economy and quality of living.
The third area is coastal North Carolina especially the Wilmington area. This area attracts people for the same reasons as well as the fact that people love the beaches.
The last area of particularly high growth in NC is the Asheville area. This city is located in the beautiful NC mountains. Many retired people are attracted to this area. In fact Asheville has been rated in several publications as one of the best cities for retirees. This area offers beautiful vistas, loads of recreational activities, and reasonably priced housing.

Lexington and Thomasville, North Carolina were the fastest growing micropolitan in the country for 2007. We are located on the I-85 corridor. There is tremendous potential for growth here for people who have vision.

The coastal Carolina beaches are still growing in spite of all the negative national real estate news. Predictions are that we will continue to grow as the working population begins to retire; however, you didn't mention your reason to move. I would not advise a young, upward mobile person to move to the beach. Job opportunities are mainly service oriented with very little industry jobs available so it depends upon your motivation. Raleigh & Charlotte have a strong market for employment opportunities.

Raleigh, along with Charlotte, has always had superb growth. I prefer to live in Raleigh because of the lifestyle. As you can see by clicking the link to the awards Raleigh has won, it is one of the best, if not the best, places in the country for business, education, lifestyle, jobs, and low crime. I am a mortgage professional in the area, and can introduce you to my personal network of real estate professionals if you are interested in learning more. Please feel free to give email or give me a call at 800-784-6889 x222 with any questions you may have. I can help you secure a mortgage anywhere in North Carolina, but my reccomendation would be Raleigh.

There are a couple agents on this forum for the Carolinas and are licensed in both states. Many agents have emails set up to notify them when there is a question in their area. However, in order for them to get that email your question needs to be listed with the location when you set up the question. If you don't get an answer from one of them tomorrow, post your question again for North Carolina.

Atlantic Beach, NC had a HUGE surge in prices over the past year but it has come to a screeching halt.
Sorry, that's as much as I know.
