Editorial: Good reason for optimism over Madison County economy

(Continued)

Of course, there’s a flip side to low property values. Buying is easy. But it can be hard to get a good return on your investment when you decide to sell.

That’s why it’s important that local quality of life continues to be an emphasis for community leaders. Good schools, parks, roads and other infrastructure make the county a more desirable place to live and can help drive property values up, while driving unemployment down.

In summary Employment rates and real estate sales show the Madison County economy is headed in the right direction.
