Real Estate Investing | Memphis Foreclosures and Home Values

By Chris Clothier on Mon, Jan 17, 2011

Memphis real estate investors continue to get good news from independent analysts on the near future for Memphis investment properties.

Clear Capital recently released its' Home Value Index report for 2011 with data on major real estate markets around the country and their chief economists updated predictions for those markets.  As has been the case in the past, there are pockets of the country that seem almost unaffected by the housing crisis and other parts of the country that may never recover.  Memphis appears to be somewhere in the middle as economists are predicting Memphis Real Estate to appreciate 3.2% in the coming year.  That may not seem like a big boost, but Memphis is one of only four markets expected to appreciate in the coming year.

Responsible Lending = Better Investment opportunities in Memphis

By Chris Clothier on Mon, Nov 30, 2009

Bank strategy will lead to more investment properties in Memphis

By Chris Clothier on Fri, Jul 24, 2009
