Any time a client tells me they are nervous about selling their home or a buyer says they are concerned about buying due to the economy, I always remind them that every market it different and unique. They need to take many things into account locally when deciding to buy or sell. One of the most important things that can spur on a housing market and economy is job growth. Forbes has just ranked Bryan/College Station #3 small city for jobs in the entire United States! This is just a sign of the growth we are having and will continue to have in the future. When people need jobs, they look to areas where jobs are located, and luckily for us Aggieland is one the top cities in the US!
