Living Luxuriously in Raleigh

Welcome to Raleigh.


Three words that luxury property owners hear with great excitement as they settle into their brand new, custom-built home. Raleigh has long offered an excellent quality of life loaded with southern charm and now, it is drawing residents wishing to relocate to more exclusive, premier neighborhoods. Speight Built Custom Homes is a leader in crafting gorgeous homes that make a statement - all within the most desired Raleigh neighborhoods.


Welcome to Raleigh:


  • Located within the arms of the Research Triangle, Raleigh boasts a strong economy thanks to a diverse range of industries. Businesses focused on technology, healthcare, education, and research have all chosen this area to plant corporate roots. The job market is strong, drawing the most talented employees to the area.
  • The real estate market in and surrounding Raleigh continues to remain affordable. With a cost of living lower than the national average and numerous housing options, there is truly a home for every buyer. Custom home builders are able to take advantage of this affordability, creating a home specific to the buyer’s every desire, without impacting budget.
  • Raleigh is also known for its diverse, welcoming community. A testament to this is its vibrant arts and cultural scene including the Contemporary Art Museum of Raleigh, the Gregg Museum of Art & Design, or the Pope House Museum. While these smaller museums may not be as well-known as the NC Museums of Art, Science, or History, they highlight the area’s inclusivity.
  • With extensive recreational amenities, the Raleigh area is a hot spot for those who love to spend time in nature. Over 100 miles of greenways beckon walkers, hikers, runners, and cyclists to enjoy trails hugging the Neuse River, Shelley Lake, and more. Water enthusiasts will never be bored as both Jordan and Falls Lakes are open for boating, fishing, or swimming year-round.
  • When selecting a locality to build a new home, proximity to healthcare is often at the top of the must-have list. This area is packed with options, including the Duke University and University of North Carolina Medical Centers. WakeMed hospital has numerous satellite campuses across the Raleigh area making accessibility the last worry in the event of emergent needs.
  • Perhaps the biggest draw to the Raleigh area is the endless list of top-ranked higher-education facilities. There are 18 colleges and universities sprinkled throughout city limits with additional opportunities in adjacent cities. Whether seeking instruction in trades, teaching, or technology the list of available degrees is endless. And with the hot Triangle job market, the transition from the classroom to a company is often seamless.
