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.

Will Federal assistance help Memphis real estate investing?

Posted by Chris Clothier on Wed, Nov 18, 2009

I found a great article from RISMEDIA on line detailing how the tax credits work and thought I would share it with everyone while also giving my take on how the tax credit can help investors.  I have been asked several times over the last couple of weeks if the tax credits would help with the Memphis investment real estate market.  I think it can if investors are smart with how they try to utilize it.  Whether selling an exising property to a tenant or purchasing a new property for fix n flip, investors need to be realistic with how much play they will actually get from the program.
