Jefferson City area home sales jump
Surge in closings driven by state workers
Sunday, June 17, 2012
Residential home sales jumped more than 20 percent in Jefferson City during the first half of the year, the Jefferson City Area Board of Realtors reported.
The number of single-family homes sold between Jan. 1 and May 31 this year was 417, compared to 346 last year, a 20.52 percent increase.
Chris Christian, a Realtor and president of the local Realtors board, acknowledged home sales are driven in large part by the state workforce. “The fact that people seem less in fear of layoffs and things like that at the state maybe leading to some of that confidence that we’re feeling,” he said.
