Temple, TX (PRWEB) March 28, 2011
Due to its low cost of living, healthy job market, and strong, diversified economy, Temple and its surrounding metro area recently landed the top spot in the Milken Institute’s list of the country’s “Best-Performing Cities.” Prominent Tempe Realtor Connie Sterling cites the metro area’s combination of stability, affordability and wealth of employment opportunities as the main reason behind the resilience of its real estate market and the continuing demand for homes for sale in Tempe, TX.
This is not the first time that the Killeen-Temple-Fort Hood metropolitan area has appeared in these rankings—it placed second on the list in 2009 and has been in the top 50 since 2005. “The most recent data from the Council for Community and Economic Research puts our area’s cost of living index at 86.9, which is significantly lower than the US average of 100,” says Sterling. “With this low cost of living, high quality of life, an economy driven by the medical, health and technological industries, and reasonably priced homes for sale, Temple, Texas, is an ideal place to live and invest in.”
A multimillion dollar producer and an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR), Sterling specializes in houses for sale in Tempe, Texas, and residential real estate in surrounding areas such as Belton. She is confident that the Temple area will recover from the effects of the recession far more swiftly than other areas.
“Temple and the Central Texas region as a whole have already been showing job gains in the past months,” says Sterling, “and we have been fortunate that we have not had to contend with over-inflated housing prices. Temple has a bright future ahead of it.”
