Clemmons named one of the ‘10 best cities in North Carolina’
Online real estate brokerage firm Movoto Real Estate has named Clemmons the #6 “city” in North Carolina, according to a post on its website.
Clemmons, technically a village in Forsyth County, has a population of 18,627 according to the 2010 census.
The blog considered cost of living, crime rate, education, median household income, home value and amenities when making its top 10 list.
“We started with a list of the 50 most populous municipalities (cities, towns, villages, and Census Designated Places) in North Carolina and ranked them from one to 50 in each of the criteria above, with one being the best. Then we averaged the numbers for each criteria and gave them an overall Big Deal Score—the lower the number, the higher it ranked,” the company said in the blog post.
Here’s what Movoto said about Clemmons:
Smaller even than Morrisville, Clemmons, with a population of just over 19,000 comes in at No. 6 on our list. How did Clemmons climb onto our Top 10? Well mostly because they ranked high in… pretty much everything.
But here are some of the key characteristics that makes this town shine. Clemmons is safe, with a crime rate 37 percent lower than the state average; smart, with a high school degree attainment rate 16 percent higher; and doing pretty well economically, with a median household income 46 percent higher than the NC average.
What do they do with all that money? Some of it probably goes to their churches, as this little southern city has an unholy amount of churches—21 for their small population– which boosted their amenities score overall.
Here’s the entire top 10 list:
