Memphis is HOT!

Memphis is a HOT, HOT, HOT real estate market right now. 

According to a recent article by Jeff Rohde (https://learn.roofstock.com/blog/memphis-real-estate-market), “Memphis is ranked as one of the top 5 fastest-selling real estate markets in the US. Homes are selling fast, with fewer listings available and increased competition between homebuyers and investors.”

“Housing in Memphis has been in short supply for quite some time. A recent article in the Memphis Business Journal notes that fewer new homes are being built due to a shortage of qualified workers and the rising cost of land development. The imbalance between supply and demand helps to keep prices high and the demand for rental property in Memphis robust.”

Rohde cited these statistics:
