Nov. 29 - ERA Real Estate Identifies Statesboro as Under the Radar Relocation Market

Category: Statesboro / Effingham Area News

Nov. 29, 2013 – ERA Real Estate, a global real estate franchisor, and the members of its U.S. broker network have identified four “under the radar” housing markets that are benefitting from home buyers relocating from out of state. The growth in these markets is supported by the consumer sentiment for self-directed relocations to out-of-state markets found in a recent ERA Real Estate / survey that showed 1 in 3 Americans would consider moving to another state in the next one to two years. The main motivators for such a major move include financial as well as lifestyle considerations.

Statesboro was descirbed as “An A+ in Work, Culture and Education.”

“More and more people are moving to Statesboro for many reasons,” said broker owner Pat Hirsch of ERA Landmark Realty in Statesboro. “First and foremost, our taxes are really low. And, we are home to Georgia Southern University, which creates jobs and offers sporting, cultural and performing arts events.”
Bulloch County’s population grew 3.5 percent from 2010 to 2012, according to the U.S. Census. “We have a very progressive hospital providing job opportunities and luring the medical community to Statesboro,” said Hirsch. “A great scope of public schools, strong university system and ongoing industry relocation to the region – are further complemented by affordable housing. In fact, the average sale price of a home is $151,330,and in some cases, you can purchase a 3,000-square-foot home for around $240,000.”
When a weekend break from work and schools calls, residents can travel just 50 miles to famed Savannah or drive two hours to Jacksonville, Fla., to stroll the beaches. In essence, people can enjoy those coastal regions with less worry regarding storms, hurricanes, etc. And when sticking close to home, a downtown arts center provides entertainment.

Other markets include The Villages, Sumter County, Fla.; Sugar Land, Texas; and Hays County and Austin, Texas, which share the common attributes of having growing economies, increasing populations and sufficient housing stock, the benefits of which are low unemployment, increasing job opportunities and housing prices kept in check by a balanced inventory.
