Oxford, MS (PRWEB) April 24, 2013
Drawn by the presence of the University of Mississippi – locally known as Ole Miss – as well as the area’s overall quality of life, retirees continue to flock to the city of Oxford in Lafayette County. Cherie Matthews Real Estate, one of the most prominent brokerages in the area, reports that the number of retirees investing in Oxford real estate has increased in recent years.
“It’s not difficult to see why Oxford properties are so appealing not only to retirees, but to virtually everyone else as well,” says Cherie Matthews, the firm’s founder and one of the area’s leading Realtors. “Quite simply, Oxford is a great place to live. There’s always something to do here, whether you’re into sports, arts and culture, or the outdoors. What’s more, taxes are low; our cost of living is lower than the state and national average; and our healthcare services are superb.”
Ranked #2 in Livability.com’s most recent list of the country’s “Top 10 College Towns,” Oxford has reaped numerous accolades from all kinds of sites and publications over the years. It’s been named a Preserve America Community, one of the country’s “Terrific Low-Tax Towns,” “Best Small Townss,” and “Best Places to Retire,” and so on. This accounts for the enduring popularity of homes for sale in Oxford, MS even in the midst of a recession.
“There’s no other place like Oxford,” says Matthews. “Where else can you watch a football game, catch a play, shop and dine in a historic town square, and visit a literary lion’s home all in one day? We’re proud of our community and there’s nothing we love more than helping others find out for themselves why it’s such an exceptional place to live.”
