Tallahassee Continues To See Steady Population Growth
As we can see from the graph, Tallahassee has continued to see a healthy increase in its population. Both Tallahassee as well as the State of Florida have seen their growth rate slow down, but growth is occurring nonetheless.
Many around the state speculate that Tallahassee is just one large new employer away from an explosive growth event. I have spoken with a few regional investors who feel that due to our proximity to the I-10 cooridor as well as a natural juncture between Atlanta and Orlando, that Tallahassee is situated in a great location to facilitate regional expansion. And just as South Florida has melded into 1 large populous mass based upon I-75 and I-95, many foresee a similar parallel for Jacksonville, Tallahassee, Pensacola along I-10. Does this mean that one day everything in Florida will be either "South Florida" or "North Florida?"
Tallahassee Housing Sales Stall
As I mentioned in an earlier post about how poor Tallahassee home sales were in July, I am surprised that we have seen such a drop in the Tallahassee housing market. Sure we had a large, two or three year bull-run on the market, but look at how the population growth ran during that same period of time. The large dip in the Tallahassee housing market seems to be especially severe considering that our growth in people is on a seemingly continuous climb. So, now this brings me back to where today's blog began.....
