North, Carolina can be a wonderful place to live.

But today, I'm going to give you about 10 reasons why you might want to avoid this place stick around.

Hello family.

My name is Sir, Ashley, I'm, a realtor and investor in North and South Carolina.

And if you're interested in learning, what it's like to live work, play eat buy real estate in either North or South Carolina.

This is the channel for you so make sure you hit that subscribe button and tap on that Bell icon.

So you can be alerted when we come out with a new video.

So I have many people reaching out asking me.

What is it like living in North Carolina? And what can they expect and I? Absolutely love it and my team and I love giving you feedback and just having a dialogue with all of you that reach out.

So if that is you and you have any questions about what it's like living here, make sure you leave a comment after this video, or you can reach out to us whether it be a phone call a text or email, I, personally, love talking to people about what it's like relocating to North Carolina So today, we're going to talk about almost 10 reasons why you should probably avoid North Carolina now, I'm, not saying that these are negative and I'm, not saying that they're positive, either and I've lived in North Carolina, primarily since 2002 and I've lived on the coast of Wilmington I've lived in the triangle, which is the Raleigh Durham, Chapel, Hill area and I've lived in Charlotte and I've also had rental properties in Greensboro and Fayetteville.

So I have a good sense of the state of North Carolina and I've experienced just about all the stuff that I've mentioned in this video.

And these are my own opinions, but it's, not my job to give you my opinion on if it's good or bad I'm here to tell you about my experiences and let you decide for yourself if it's a positive or negative.

And for you to decide if North Carolina is the place that you want to call home.

So let's start off by getting this taboo subject out of the way North Carolina is a very purple State.

The cities are very liberal with the exception of Wilmington.

But once you go outside of the Cities about 20 or 25 miles, it gets very conservative very quickly.

There are parts of the states where you'll see Maga Flags or Trump 2020 or Trump 2024 flags.

And then there are areas of the state where you'll see more signs like this.

And you will have a much more diverse population with various languages being spoken people in North Carolina love their beer, their Bible Bourbon and their guns.

Also people in North Carolina support.

The right to work state that North Carolina is and some people like that and some people don't, but that's, just the way North Carolina is, and if you're unfamiliar with what a right to work state is I suggest you research it, yes, I went to law school in practice law, but I will not be answering any legal questions.

So after you've done your research and please I'm not talking about looking up answers on Facebook, but after you've done your research, and if you don't feel comfortable that North Carolina is a right to work state.

Then North Carolina may not be for you.

The second reason why you might want to avoid North Carolina is that the weather on the eastern part and the western part of the state can be very extreme.

The eastern part of the state is near the coast, and it does get severe weather such as her hurricanes and tropical storms and also flooding and there's also large parts of flooding throughout Fayetteville North Carolina.

But then there is out west where there are mountains.

And you have to deal with serious significant amount of snow during the winter, but for most of the state I'm talking about the triangle region, the Triad region and the Charlotte area.

The weather really doesn't get too extreme.

If you can handle a little snow and yes, I do mean a little snow because on average Charlotte gets only five inches of snow a year and Raleigh and Greensboro gets about three to five inches respectively as well.

So for the majority of North Carolina, if you can handle a little snow, it is perfect for you.

But on the positive side, when there's any potential of snow or ice, the entire State shuts down because here in North Carolina, we just don't have the infrastructure to clear the roads and to sort the roads fast enough temperatures can get very very hot during the summer time.

But the fall time is absolutely perfect.

You will definitely get all four seasons.

If you live here in North, Carolina, let's, move on to number three, North Carolina has some crazy and I do mean crazy Wildlife down here, I live in the city of Charlotte.

But at least three to maybe four times a year, I see deer or a family of deer as I drive.

Now, I know, that's not crazy, but I wanted to ease you into the crazy stuff.

If you don't like snakes, North, Carolina, probably isn't for you.

This is one I wish I had known because I am a when it comes to snakes.

And yes, I've had snakes in my garage and I've also seen shedded snakeskin as I've mowed them on yes, I'm.

Not above admitting I screamed.

I ran every time I saw a snake, or even the snake's skin lying around and then I called a neighbor or a family member to come take care of it.

I don't mess with snakes.

Also almost daily you'll.

See somebody post on next door.

Next door is the community social app and they're posting about a snake and wondering if it's a copperhead or not and yes, all of these posts do get annoying.

But then on occasion, someone will post something like this today.

And then you will really reconsider your decision about living in North Carolina along the eastern coast of North Carolina.

Yes, you will come across alligators those prehistoric creatures.

They still do exist here in North Carolina in the western part of the state you will come across black bears.

And for the most part, they aren't really worried about us humans.

But if you're out camping and have some food lying around, they will be concerned about your food.

So I recommend having some bear spray if you're not comfortable with guns.

But if you are comfortable with guns, make sure you have at least a 44 magnum, another Wildlife creature that absolutely freaks me out here in North Carolina are all of the spiders.

And yes, we have all of them from black widows to brown recluses.

All of them I was out showing a home recently and I saw this giant thing now I'm glad it was way up near the roof of the home.

Because if it was any closer I would have left my clients at that very moment and called them once I got a safe distance away.

Now, if you've watched my channel, you probably know that I'm from New York and I've lived in DC.

So I'm used to seeing rats I was not used to seeing flying roaches here in North Carolina.

They call them something else here.

But no, they are flying roaches here in North Carolina.

Terrifying, let's move on to number four.

The fourth reason why you might want to avoid North Carolina is that tourism is a thing here in North Carolina.

The state is a destination spot for a lot of people.

We have the mountains, and we also have the coast, but as a resident there's, a lot of things happening in the middle of the state that I know, there's tons of tourists coming in to see whether that is the Biltmore whether it's the state fair or it's, a Nascar event, there's always tourism here in North Carolina.

And as a resident, you really do feel the influx of people because our infrastructure enrolls here in North Carolina are already a little bit congested during rush hour.

But when there's an event or there's vacationers in town, it gets almost unbearable traffic gets backed up seriously.

So as a resident here in North Carolina, when there's an event taking place, you really do have to plan accordingly for your ordinary trips to and from the grocery store or to and from work.

The next reason why you might want to avoid North Carolina, especially the Charlotte area is because people can't drive, I know, North Carolinians will argue with me on this one.

But facts are facts people in North Carolina, just can't drive and I know, people born and raised in North Carolina are going to blame other people or the transplants coming in as to why people can drive.

But for the sake of argument, let's just say that the people here living in North Carolina cannot drive.

So if you want to stay with competent drivers, you might want to avoid North Carolina.

People, forget how to act with human decency.

Once they get in their car, it's weird.

Because when you're walking around, you do feel that southern hospitality and people are cordial for the most part.

But then when they get in the car, I, don't know, a light switch flips on.

And everybody just becomes crazy.

It's almost like Dr, Jekyll and Mr Hyde.

Now let's talk about the sixth reason why you might want to avoid North Carolina.

And for some of you, it might not be a big deal, and it wasn't a big deal for me for a very long time.

But when it became a deal, it became a huge deal and I'm talking about allergies.

If you get seasonal allergies, or in my case, adult onset, seasonal allergies.

You may want to avoid North Carolina.

The pollen gets so thick during that time of year that you'll think that everybody's driving around in a yellow car.

Yes, it is that serious just make sure that you're stocked up on Allegra D or Claritin-D because you're going to need it.

And at one point I, even tried a trick that I heard some people talking about and that's eating local raw, honey on the regular basis, leading up to the spring and summer.

But while I did love the honey that trick didn't work for me.

So again, have your allergy medication on hand.

Now, let's talk about another elephant in the room for those of you who like diversity, diversity and thought, diversity in population parts of North, Carolina seriously, lacking that department.

So if you want diversity diversity in population or diversity in thought, you may want to check out some of the larger cities within the state.

Now, the eighth reason why you might want to avoid North Carolina is because there is a population.


People are moving to North Carolina at a very Swift pace.

So if you're thinking about moving to North Carolina with the hopes or idea of getting to a sparsely populated state, North Carolina might not be for you as I said, earlier, North, Carolinians, love their beer love.

Their Bible love, their Bourbon.

And they love their guns.

If you do not like guns or seeing people with guns, North Carolina may not be for you.

Now I, remember, the first time that I got introduced to the gun culture here in North Carolina.

And it was when I was in law school.

One of my friends who's now, an attorney in the western part of the state invited me and a couple other people to the gun range.

Now in my head I'm, thinking, yeah, let's go to the gun range fire, a couple of handguns.

But what I thought in my head was totally different than what actually happened when he showed up this man had an arsenal at the time.

He had a four-door sedan and I didn't know that you could fit.

So many gun cases and ammunition into a small four-door sedan.

Needless to say at that very moment, I realized that people in North Carolina are very very serious about their guns.

And after that experience, while in law school, a lot of us, went ahead and got our gun permits and eventually got our Concealed Carry Permits.

So if you're scared of guns or scared of seeing people with guns, I should clarify that if you're scared of seeing people of all Races with guns.

Maybe North Carolina is not the place for you.

Now again.

These are my top reasons on why you should probably avoid North Carolina now, I'm, not saying, they're negative and I'm, not saying, they're, positive, I've been here since 2002.

And this has been my experience of what it's like living here in North Carolina.

And let me know what you think which one of these talking points are positive in your eyes, and which ones are negative in your eyes.

Now if you're serious about moving to North Carolina, please make sure you reach out give me a call shoot me a text send an email.

And if you like this video, please leave a comment letting me know and also tap on that Thumbs Up, Button, I'm, sir Ashley, talk.

Soon rewind.
