)-- CNN Money ranks Henry County 7th fastest growing job market in the nation
Henry County, Ga. ranked number seven among the top 25 counties in America for job opportunities according to a list recently compiled and released by CNN Money entitled, Where the Jobs Are. Henry was the only county in Georgia to make the top ten on the list. Henry County’s job growth since 2000 has been above the national average. Close proximity to Atlanta employment centers and Hartsfield-Jackson International Airport add to the employment stability of the growing county. Experts agree that job growth is a key predictor of the growth of the local real estate market, a great sign for Henry County and communities like Heron Bay Golf and Country Club, the area’s top selling master-planned community.
“Job growth is one of the most critical aspects for the recovery of the housing market,” said Brian Davison, managing partner of Minerva Properties LLP, the developer of Heron Bay Golf and Country Club. “We are happy to be located in one of best job markets in the country. It is a great indicator for the future of Heron Bay.”
Many real estate and economic experts are predicting that job growth will lead to the recovery of the real estate market. Urban Land Institute’s Senior Resident Fellow, Steve Blank discussed this topic at a conference in Atlanta on July 21, 2009. Blank said that as people find stability in their employment, they will begin to participate in the real estate market, which in turn, will lead to its recovery.
Heron Bay Golf and Country Club has been the top selling community in Henry County since 2004 and has consistently ranked among the top selling single family communities in the entire metropolitan area. The recipient of numerous awards for outstanding development practices, Heron Bay is a master-planned community featuring an aquatic center, golf course, tennis courts, Lakefront Park, extensive trail system, clubhouse and proposed charter school.
