Market Report for the Fort Benning area in Alabama Phenix City, Smiths, Fort Mitchell and Seale We saw a slight drop in home sales in May, an 8% decrease from April. Total Homes Sold: May-91     April-98 Average Days on Market: May-127     April-162 Average Sold Price: May-$151k      April-$144 New Listings Taken: May-198      April-231 Total Sold Volume: May-$13.7 mil      April-$14.1 mil   VA financing continues to be the popular method. Many military families find that the west gate area to Fort Benning brings a little more home for the money. FHA financing was second, cash sales led conventional financing. This maybe due to investors purchasing foreclosures. Please contact me for more information about the market or any other information about the area.

In a recent article of "The Economist", Moody's Economy.com the Phenix City, AL - Columbus, GA area ranked 7th nationally in job growth out of 378 metropolitan areas. This is tremendous news for the area and especially the homes for sale in the Phenix City, AL and Columbus, GA area. With other cities in the state and nation struggling in these tough economic time, this area is going from strength to strength.   There are several factors that contribute to the job growth. Some of the factors are the proximity to Kia Auto plant in LaGrange, GA, ATM manufacture NCR moving to the Columbus area and wholesale distributor Nash Finch move to the area just to name some of the new employers.     But the biggest boost to the area is the expansion of an existing employer - The United States Army.

We have seen an increase of military families moving to the area due to the Base Realignment and Closings (BRAC) in which many bases around the country are closing. While many are closing, Fort Benning is expanding...

Here come the 2010 forecasts... Mortgages rates, which hit an all-time low about a month ago, are slated to rise to six percent by the end of 2010, according to the deputy chief economist at mortgage financier Freddie Mac. Amy Crew Cutts told the Washington Post mortgage rates could climb about a percentage point over the next year as the Fed winds down its mortgage securities purchase program. She said private buyers of mortgage securities will demand a higher rate of return on the investments than that of the Federal Reserve, prompting banks and lenders to raise interest rates for consumer loans. Last week, the always-hot 30-year fixed averaged 5.05 percent, up slightly from 4.94 percent a week earlier; but rates have increased for three consecutive weeks since hitting rock bottom. A...

Monday's bond market has opened in negative territory following early stock gains and stronger than expected housing news. The Dow is currently up 94 points while the Nasdaq has gained 15 points. The bond market is currently down 18/32, which will likely push this morning's mortgage rates higher by approximately .250 of a discount point.The only economic data released this morning was January's Existing Home Sales report. The National Association of Realtors releases this data that tracks home resales in the U.S. It showed a slight drop in sales, but not nearly as much of a drop that analysts had expected. With this being today's only news, it has had a moderate impact on today's bond trading and mortgage rates.The first big report of the week will be released early tomorrow morning whe...

Phenix City cleared a major hurdle for the Troy State University Business School to locate along the River in Phenix City.    The Office of Housing and Development approved the purchase of the Triangle property at the 700 and 800 blocks of Phenix City.   This is the land designated to be used for the new business school.   The new business school coupled with the construction of the Phenixian along the Riverfront will be a huge step in the revitalization of downtown Phenix City.   Phenix City is working to revitalize much like Columbus on the other side of the river.   Columbus State University has moved their art and music schools downtown and rehabbed several downtown buildings in the process.   Coupled with the new streetscapes and the RiverCenter - downtown is becoming a great place...
