Alabama was Lucky #13 in House Price Appreciation in 2007!

Alabama real estate sales were ranked number 13 in terms of appreciation in 2007. Add to that, the fact that Huntsville AL was one of the top twenty cities in the United states real estate market for appreciation, and you have a good prognosis for the Alabama economy. The Office of Federal Housing Enterprise Oversight (OFHEO) produced an 88 page reports that says Alabama real estate sales were number 13 in the list of states that had "...positive four-quarter appreciation" in 2007...".  The report has lots of positive information, but it hasn't been widely publicized.  The list of states and their ranking by appreciation over 2007 is on page 25 of the .pdf report.  When you add the tax benefits for investing in the Go Zone to the appreciation that has occured, it seems that Alabama is one area of the country that should continue to see a positive real estate market.

80% of the United States had POSITIVE appreciation in 2007 according to the chart page 25 and 26 of the report.  And, of the 291 cities monitored in the report, 65% of US cities had appreciation.  Too bad these statistics aren't being widely reported.  This report uses a few different set of statistics to show different aspects of the housing market.

United States real estate still provides one of the best available forms of investment for people looking to grow wealth over the long run. Real Estate professionals should be using blogging, newslettering, pressreleasing, emailing, and any other useful method to get this positive news out!

The report can be found at:  http://www.ofheo.gov/media/pdf/4q07hpi.pdf

Appreciation :)  What does that mean (lol)  I am glad to hear it

Appreciation seems to be a forgotten word in the media.

TN is not so bad either!
