Some things to consider before moving this way. NC is one of the most highly taxed states in this area. State income tax is pretty high...
This can be a little misleading. In NC, education is paid for mainly at the state level and that (being the largest part of the state budget)does make the income tax higher than in other southeastern states. But those other states pay for education at the county/municipal level so their property taxes are higher than in NC.
