Value of investing in Memphis real estate on the rise!
Reasons to get started investing TODAY continue to mount.
If you haven't figured out why you are investing in Memphis real estate then maybe some of these stats will help you out.

- Memphis is 21% undervalue entering 2010.
- Analysts believe job market will stabilize with unemployment around 6%-8% for Memphis.
- The over-all consensus is that Memphis will continue to see opportunity for investors as home prices remain below value.  A second wave of foreclosures will keep the supply side high and pricing for investors well below value in 2010.
- Mortgage rates are expected to climb to an average of 5.86% by year end which remains HISTORICALLY low even after the climb!
- With the job market predicted to see growth in the supply, defense, medical, staffing and distribution fields, demand for Memphis rental housing should continue to be strong.

MemphisInvest.com is owned by investors who are constantly keeping our eyes on the local economy and specifically the housing and rental markets.  We feel that 2010 will continue the recent trend of years with outstanding opportunity to take advantage of low entry pricing with high rates of return on investment.

Home price stability seen for Memphis!
Memphis will be among the best areas in the nation this year for stable home prices, according to SmartMoney.com.

The article, based on data from Moody's Economy.com, projects that home prices in Memphis will rise .99 percent in 2010.

That would be second only to Tacoma, Wash., (2.44 percent) and ahead of Pittsburgh (.89 percent), Charleston, S.C. (.18 percent) and Seattle (a decline of .5 percent).

Much of the credit for the healthy Memphis forecast goes to the city's major employer, FedEx, the article states.

The transportation industry is among the first sectors to rebound as the economy regains strength, the article states.
