Four County Update - Tallahassee Real Estate Market

Posted by Joe Manausa on Wednesday, August 27th, 2008 at 8:37am.

The real estate market is local in nature, yet most of the media reports tell us how the real estate market is doing nationally, or how it is doing in the state of Florida. While this blog typically focuses on the real estate market in Tallahassee, I do occasionally take a peek at the markets that surround Leon County. This blog is one of my monthly updates that is designed to recognize the impact on Leon County when one of the surrounding counties does something unique or extraordinary.

While most people who want to work in Tallahassee choose to live in Leon County, the four counties that comprise the Tallahassee real estate market also make for wonderful alternatives to living in Tallahassee.

So what is this graph of the real estate markets surrounding Tallahassee showing us?
