I just finished the Branson Real Estate Market Report for the past 5 Years. With the NAR showing a national average appreciation rate of 3.6%, most market segments in Branson have done very well indeed. The largest increase was single-family lakefront properties appreciating at an average of 17.2% per year for the past 5 years. WOW! Runner up was acreage homes on 1-10 acres, with an appreciation rate of 9.1%. The second runner up was condo lakefront homes coming in at a 6.4% increase. For more information, please read the full report.
Also in the report are statistics from several nearby communities, such as Hollister, Branson West, Kimberling City, and Ozark.
With just having moved to Branson from Nashville a couple of years ago, I was curious as to the comparison of Nashville to Branson. I concentrated on Hendersonville and area 2, which is downtown Nashville - and was surprised to see that although there is growth (Lord knows there's growth in Nashville)...the appreciation rate wasn't as high as some of the Branson segments. I was surprised! Of course, there are many more homes sold in Nashville - but I was just looking at averages.
Please contact me with any questions you have.
