    Durham, NC in the news

    Renter's guide to Durham, NC

    With a bustling economy and educational opportunities galore, Durham has steadily cultivated a robust entrepreneurial spirit within a laid-back urban atmosphere for quite some time. Add a rich sports culture, affordable living rates, and a Civil War history, and it’s easy to see why this is a good place for fledgling families from all backgrounds to call home.

    Durham is the fourth largest city in North Carolina, located at the northernmost point of “The Research Triangle” – a region whose imaginary borders are delineated by the cities of Raleigh, Durham, and Chapel Hill. In the center of these three areas is the Research Triangle Park, home to many high-tech businesses which employ the local population.

    Durham is roughly four times larger than Chapel Hill, and only slightly smaller than Raleigh (while also half as populated). As such, Durham retains a wonderfully diverse community with a close-knit feel.  Durham residents enjoy a close proximity to other popular cities as well. Raleigh is 25 miles northwest of Durham, Chapel Hill is 11 miles southwest of Durham, and Durham is roughly 140 miles northeast of Charlotte. The closest beach to Durham (NC) is Wrightsville Beach, approximately 156 miles south.

    Durham’s climate matches that of the rest of the Carolinas – all four seasons are represented equally throughout the year, so the weather in Durham is mostly pleasant and mild. Summers (June-August) average 76 F and are slightly rainy. Springs (March-May) average 56 F with lots of sun. Autumns (September-November) have an average temperature of 61 F and tend to be a little cloudy, while winters (December-January) average 43 F and only receive light amounts of snow, if any.

    Tips for renting in Durham, NC

    Renters rights in Durham are different than almost anywhere in the country. There is no legal notice needed before a landlord can enter the home. If a case goes to court, your landlord may not sue for attorney fees. New Yorkers will be pleased to hear that consumer prices including rent are 80% lower in Durham, but here’s a tip before moving to Durham: you are going to need a car!
