When thinking of the Carolinas, most people have an image in their mind of a welcoming, beautiful, temperate, and all together comfortable part of the world. while there are places that match that description, many areas within the Carolinas are actually the exact opposite. However, Laurinburg North Carolina is one such area, and it just so happens to have historical significance, a good university, and a community that works hard to ensure that everyone gets along. This has made it a popular place for families to settle down, creating more business and housing options each and every year.
While the city is small right now, with around 15,000 people in the city, that number is expected to double in the next 10 years, and with it so are the businesses and schools in the area. This has led to the creation of some unique jobs in the area, but has also made it a great area for people who want to settle down with a family to move.
Due to the current small size of the city, homes are still quite cheap, but there are new and quite modern options available for much cheaper than most people would think. In addition, there are a number of construction companies that are working in the area, helping give families their dream home for cheaper than they have been able to find in neighboring areas. This is creating new communities, that still have a welcoming and connected atmosphere to them as new and old residents are mixing in new subdivisions.
The city also has a 4 year university, making it a great place to raise children if you want them to stay near home when they are starting out on their degrees. The university actually has a great record for academics and has been working on expanding the options that it offers for degrees over the last few years, attracting more talent to the area as well. However, it is not a college town and most of the people who attend the university are actually local to the area, creating a community that can be relied upon, even at the upper division levels.
If all of this sounds like somewhere too good to be true, it isn’t, it’s just one of the amazing things that makes life in the Carolinas more enjoyable than life anywhere else.
