Mungo Homes Builds in the Best Places to Live
Mungo Homes is dedicated to bringing the highest quality homes to the most desirable locations throughout our markets. It’s always rewarding to see the areas we’ve built be recognized on a national level as one of the best places to live. U.S. News releases a yearly list ranking the top 150 cities based on housing affordability, desirability, job market strength, happiness, quality of life and more. We’re proud to say that many of our markets were in the top 50, and one even came in as the second greatest place to live in the country.
Raleigh and Durham, North Carolina
Known as the Triangle, the tri-city region encompassing Raleigh, Durham and Chapel Hill, North Carolina clinched the title of second-best place to live in the United States in 2021. This prosperous area includes three top universities within a 30-minute drive, which has helped create a booming job market and highly educated population.
In addition to the education and job opportunities, the cities of Raleigh and Durham offer endless activity options—from arts and culture to history and nature, there’s something for everyone between these two sought-after cities. Residents can enjoy shows and exhibits at various museums and performing arts centers, find their new favorite meal at a locally owned restaurant, explore the city via foot or bike on the miles of trails and cheer on both collegiate and professional sports teams. The biggest draw, for many, is living in a city but is a short two-hour drive from both beautiful North Carolina beaches to the east and lively mountainous regions to the west.
Raleigh and Durham have a strong sense of community overall, which is only heightened when living in a Mungo Homes neighborhood. Mungo has several communities throughout the region, with a variety of locations, styles and price ranges to choose from. Whether you’ve lived in the area for years or are wanting to move to one of the best places to live in the country, there’s a place for you in a Mungo Homes community.
Other Desirable Areas
Raleigh and Durham just scratched the surface of great places to buy a Mungo home throughout our markets. With Spartanburg, South Carolina coming in at #24, Myrtle Beach, South Carolina at #35, Greenville, South Carolina at #38, Charleston, South Carolina at #42 and Winston-Salem, North Carolina at #46, you really can’t go wrong moving to any of these amazing areas.
To top it all off, Mungo Homes recently moved into the Richmond, Virginia market through a partnership with CraftMaster Homes—a six-time Builder of the Year with over 20 years of award-winning experience in the new-construction industry. Richmond came in at #50, which was the highest-ranked Virginia city on this year’s list.
