Jackson County GA March 2011 Real Estate Market Report and Activity

Real Estate Agent with Lanier Partners

During the month of March 2011, the Jackson County Ga real estate market had an increase in volume after a decrease in Jan and flat in February. One bit of good news for the increase, the sales were not driven by the need to close on homes by the end of June in order to get the Home Buyers Tax Credit.

Congratulations on the increase in sells in your area. I love pecans Mike! When we lived in Cataula, we'd sit out and sell them by the curb at my great grandpa's house...ah, the memories of simpler times!

Wanda - thanks. I also enjoy pecans, but I really like the shade those trees put out.
