Money, money, money, money, moneyyyyyyyy! Not sure if that was enough moneys but if you know the song, then I am sure you sang along anyways. North Carolina is pretty well known for our Southern vibe and Southern charm. But, the state has so much to offer as well. North Carolina is actually the home to many wealthy communities known around the country. Property Club is naming the richest cities in North Carolina and I had to take a look. I have never heard of this area, but I enjoy looking at homes in affluent areas so maybe I will be taking a ride one day.
When you think of wealthy communities in North Carolina, where exactly do you think of them? Well, there are 8 cities specific on this list. But, we’re going to take a look at the city that took home the #1 spot. St. James, North Carolina is the state’s richest city. Located along the southeastern coast, St. James sits very close to South Carolina and is the wealthiest city in the state. The area is known for its quiet atmosphere, scenic views, and money. The area is great for those in the retirement phase of their lives. Enjoy golf courses, waterfront activities, walking trails, a great food scene, and so much more in the area.
St. James is the state’s wealthiest city because the per capita income in the city is $87,000. Which is pretty good for tons of retirees if you ask me. I decided to do some research of my own and look into St. James. The area seems quite beautiful and charming. I can certainly see why it is the wealthiest just from the little bit of research I did. Sounds like I might have to take a trip! Check out the full list here to see what other cities made the list.
