Chapel Hill Real Estate

In recent years, Chapel Hill, North Carolina, has become a haven for home owners. Chapel Hill real estate has become more and more popular, and thankfully this has not inflated the market too much. Chapel Hill has everything a homeowner could want: a fun, yet respectful college town, fabulous restaurants, entertainment, and education, and stunning views. Here's a closer look at some of what Chapel Hill real estate has to offer:

Home options 

The real estate market in Chapel Hill is diverse - the area ranks third in the nation for number of modernist homes, and other styles are popular throughout. Price also varies greatly, with a large number of homes worth over a million for such a small town. For the artistic mind who wants to start from scratch, there is land available from around $40,000. For those seeking a single family home, Chapel Hill offers wonderful neighborhoods with homes from $150,000. And for the person looking to settle into something eye-popping, Chapel Hill is host to a number of upper-echelon homes starting at around $500,000.


It goes without saying that many people looking at Chapel Hill real estate want to know what the local education is like. Chapel Hill sits in a hub of academic success: it is home to the acclaimed University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, while North Carolina State and prestigious Duke University are just a few miles away. The result is a trickle-down effect that can be felt on the local school scene. The local public and private middle, elementary, and high schools are all influenced by the phenomenal nearby universities, which produce great teachers, museums, and exhibits, while also having a profound influence on Chapel Hill children. 

Food scene 

In recent years, Chapel Hill has had a food renaissance of sorts, turning into one of America's gastronomical gems. In fact, the food magazine Bon Appetit named Chapel Hill "Foodiest Small Town in America" in 2008, and many of the area's acclaimed restaurants - such as Elaine's on Franklin, and Lantern Restaurant - have received national attention and been featured in premier television shows and magazines. Chapel Hill is a true dream for the modern American foodie. 

Activities and nightlife 

Because of Chapel Hill's close proximity to the universities mentioned above, there are plenty of activities and nightlife. The surrounding schools offer a myriad of opportunities for sporting events, art exhibits, and performances, while the preponderance of undergraduate and graduate students has resulted in a booming nightlife scene in the city. It's not all influenced by the schools, however, and besides great restaurants Chapel Hill is home to art galleries, movie theaters, and coffee shops.


Chapel Hill offers neighborhoods of every kind, from those such as Cameron-McCauley (the historic district), to Lake Forest (aptly named for its lakeside location). There are neighborhoods that have a large selection of contemporary homes (Timberlyne) or new builds (Briar Chapel or Winmore), as well as golf communities (Governor's Club and the Oaks). Whatever you're looking for, chances are you'll find Chapel Hill homes for sale that fit your criteria and lifestyle.
