What is Driving Muskogee's Economy? Congratulations, Muskogee, You Are Booming!

What is driving Muskogee's economy?

Is it Muskogee's cute young mayor, who just turned twenty and was interviewed during the Republican National Convention?

Is it the gas play in Southeast Oklahoma stretching its impact northward?

It is very exciting to see Muskogee's success and here's why:

The 2nd Quarter 2008 MLS Statistics were just published in a real estate professional magazine called Opening Doors (Jul/ Aug/Sept 2008).

Statewide, Altus and Muskogee were the only boards who posted increases (that's the opposite of decreases) in the average number of units sold.

The statistics showed that 212 units were sold in Muskogee in 2007 and 229 units were sold in Muskogee in 2008.  That's an increase of 8.02%.

Moreover the average price of a home sold in Muskogee went fomr $88,458 in 2007 to $96,259 in 2008.  That's an increase of 8.82%.

Congratulations, Muskogee!

Now please tell me what is driving your economy?
