The winter months are brutal. The summer, spring and fall are warm and people go inside their shell when it gets cold here so it hurts the business for residential and even some commercial when it gets cold.

Raleigh is a great market. That is the the epicenter of the research and development for medical and agriculture. Plenty of high income families to market. It is also the home of Sunbelt USA who is a banner sponsor on the board. Ryan Scoggins is a good guy to talk to there with more questions.

Winston is not bad. The economy here is rebounding from the decline of the textiles industry. Developing the medical technologies, aeronautical industries and some heavy equipment manufacturing. The economy just now beginning to get its footing again. I have been in biz 4 yrs. We have a lot of upside potential in North Carolina.

I lived inCcharlotte for several years. Its the biggest City in NC by far, and growing Raleigh is State Capital and lots of government folks there.

Those markets in the beach areas are brutal! Low splash and dash type stuff. You can make it on volume, but your gonna be running hard on the body.

I had to chuckle about longkenn's comment that the winters there are "Brutal". I'm not making fun mind you because it's always what you are used to. But if North Carolina's winters are Brutal, than mine Catastrophic! Here in the Mid-Hudson Valley Region if New York, we have been living with below zero, arctic air for over two months and snow almost every day. THAT my friend is not only Brutal, but suck ass as well. Live with that and I can assure you that you could go to Raleigh in Jan & Feb and be comfortable in a tee shirt.
