2013 Gallup Poll is already outdated
When I am doing a Listing Presentation for a Seller, I use the most accurate information for a seller to make an informed decision. The most recent data shows that the economy is slowly turning around and is reflected in the increase of our home values.
According to this Gallup poll, the state of Georgia stands out like a sore, green thumb. This data was collected from June-December, 2013. Based on the article, the primary reason the state residents' desire to more to a different state is jobs.
The state of Georgia has seen a decrease in unemployment for eight straight months. The employment rate was 8.5% in Feb. 2013 and for Feb. 2014 is 7.1%. The employment for the Atlanta area in Feb. 2014 was 6.9%.
