Oklahoma City Metro: #10 best place in the country to call home
For those of us that already live here, we know! Recently there was an article posted by RelocateAmerica.com which ranked the Oklahoma City metro area as the #10 best place to live through the recession. This is piggybacked by Forbes article late last year which pegged Oklahoma City as THE most recession proof city in the nation -- a title that we are thankfully wearing well.
Beyond weathering the recession in terms of housing prices, unemployment has stayed the course too! A recent Bloomberg report put the unemployment rate in Oklahoma City at 5.6%, which puts Oklahoma City at the #2 spot in the nation in terms of job opportunities (yes, folks, that is #2 in the nation).
The reason for the success of the Oklahoma City Metro area (which includes, Norman and Moore), was primarily due to the slow-and-steady growth rate. Housing prices have increased year-over-year for the last 20 years between 3-4%, which is far unlike the incredible increases (and subsequent falls) in home values in other areas. Beyond the steady growth, home values are relatively low compared to some areas of the country, and provide for a significantly lower cost of living, which helps our local businesses and economy.
Right now is a great time to buy a home in Norman Oklahoma, Moore Oklahoma, or Oklahoma City Oklahoma! Home values have been stable, and interest rates are at historical lows. You can search for homes for sale in Norman, Moore, or Oklahoma city, by going to my home search website which will pull pictures and information directly from the Multilist (MLS). Please let me know how I can help you with your next move!
