Chapel Hill Homes for Sale

A Few Reasons Why You Should Call Chapel Hill Home

Chapel Hill is like the Woodstock of the South. Chapel Hill is home to a thriving independent music scene, artistic community, and a growing contingent of people interested in natural and artistic living, whether that means practicing yoga, eating a local diet or living off the grid in tiny homes or in homesteading communities. At the same time, Chapel Hill is home to one of the biggest universities in the state, and has a lively intellectual community.

Money magazine named Chapel Hill No. 36 on a list of the Best Places to Live 2014, and the city keeps being recognized around the state and the country.Here are a few reasons why you might want to consider looking for homes for sale in Chapel Hill:


Chapel Hill has the best public school system in the state, so no matter where you buy Chapel Hill real estate, you'll have made a sound investment. Many area parents specifically look for homes for sale in Chapel Hill just to take advantage of the school system.

Chapel Hill is also the location of the University of North Carolina, the flagship school in the UNC system. UNC is known as one of the best public schools in the country, and is certainly the best in the state. It's also the home to a nationally ranked basketball team, which participates in a fierce rivalry with neighboring Duke.

Health Care

The UNC Health Care system is not only a teaching hospital system, but it's also one of the best hospital systems in the state. Aspiring doctors from around the country come to study here, and people from around the state and the country come here to get treatment or to participate in groundbreaking studies.

The hospital system and the university are the two biggest employers in Chapel Hill, proving thousands of full-time, part-time and temporary job opportunities.


Chapel Hill has many recreational opportunities, from its many trails and natural areas to the thriving nightlife near the university. You can browse art galleries and museums, attend a live music show at the Cat's Cradle, or dine at one of the many gourmet restaurants serving up locally grown food. Some of the best restaurants in town include the Top of the Hill Restaurant and Brewery , the Lantern, and Top This

When you're ready for a night on the town, head down to Franklin Street next to the UNC campus and do a pub crawl. You can find everything from dive bars to fancy jazz lounges. Franklin Street is also the location of many festivals and celebrations, including a hugely popular Halloween party.

To top it all off, you can get to just about anywhere in Chapel Hill on the city's reliable public transportation system.


Because Chapel Hill is such a popular community, real estate here is thriving. The price of homes for sale in Chapel Hill is a little higher than nearby areas.

The median price of home listings was $392,900 in the last quarter of 2014, but the median price of homes that sold was $300,100.
