While new construction has slowed as we exit the winter market, Williams Energy may soon begin constructing a new office complex as large as 4500 sq. ft. This may well bring up to an additional 100 permanent, full-time jobs to the area. There is also a renewed interest in the region’s subdivisions.
The current median home price sits at $144,750, which is a significant increase from price a month prior, $121,360. Inventory has been steadily declining for several months now. The average number of days on market for a property was 203, up from 133 two months ago. However, this comparison can be deceiving, as several homes that were formally overpriced and on the market for extended periods of time have now sold.
