Winston-Salem A Top City for First-Time Homebuyers
Liveability.com has named Winston-Salem, NC one of the "7 Best Cities for First-Time Homebuyers." Winston-Salem is in the company of destinations including Knoxville, TN, Oklahoma City, Pittsburgh, PA and Louisville, KY.
An excerpt from the Livability.com article: "North Carolina has no shortage of amazing cities to put your roots down, but Winston-Salem is a particularly good spot for first-time buyers because of the town’s historic appeal and its easy access to 40 vineyards in the region (need we say more?). Large urban green spaces, plentiful art galleries, 19th century taverns, plus a top-ranking HBCU campus all make this town of 244,000 feel like a much larger city in all the best ways."
Earlier this year, Winston-Salem was also named by Forbes.com one of the "Top 14 Best Places to Travel in the U.S. in 2019," and was ranked in the Top 50 by Wallet Hub for "Best Large Cities to Start a Business."
