Since January 2008, Jackson, Mississippi city officials have torn down over 500 properties. They have recently approved excavators to tear down another eight abandoned homes and buildings last week. Seven of the eight were torn down this past weekend. The last one should be torn down today. There are also another 200 on the list scheduled to be torn down by the end of the year.
This is great news for neighbors on Capitol Street in Jackson. Tearing down these eyesores will make way for new homes. As new homes are built, property values will go up. Soon every vacant or abandoned structure on Capitol Street will be leveled.
So, if you are in the market to buy vacant land and build your own home, now is the time and Jackson, Mississippi is the place. The land value is very affordable right now, but as new homes are built, the value of the land will go up. Many people can only dream of building a home in a larger city, because property values are so high; but now many dreams can become a reality. Don't let this great opportunity pass you by.
