This morning I was reading the local newspaper and saw that Dyersburg was listed as one of the top cities to retire to.
Several other news sources picked up this information and reported it. Among them were Fox Business News,Forbes.com and the senior Web Site Grand Times.
This story was based on information derived from The Council for Community and Economic Research. They did a study across the country and selected Dyersburg as one of (6) best cities in the southeast to retire to if on a fixed income. I have been writing about the affordablity of homes and property here in the Dyersburg area. In addition to that however, the study revealed the cost of living is lower here than in other areas.
Here is the article written by Kathryn Tuggle at Fox Business News.
A couple of years ago, I wrote an article on my Dyersburg Real estate Blog about Dyersburg being selected as one of the top(tied for 20th) micropolitan cities in the country. A micropolitan is a small city that is growing and attracting industry and jobs to the area. The article I referenced then can be read here.
Dyersburg is a beautiful small city with lots of industry, jobs, shopping and reasonable priced housing, healthcare, utilities,etc. That is the reason we continue to be busy here at Carousel Realty relocating people from out of state.
