The Power of the Neighborhood
We are often asked at EDo Spaces, "where's this housing market going?"
Nationally and internationally, home values have dropped from their highs of 2006-7. EDo and Huning Highlands are no exception.
The Case-Schiller U.S. index shows an overall drop of almost 30% in value in that time. Our data shows only 1/2 of that drop in EDo. Why?
We think it's because of what we call "the power of the neighborhood." We hear that word all the time, but what is a neighborhood, really?
Our definition is this:
1. It's walkable, bike-friendly and transit-supportive, yet accommodates motor vehicles effectively.
2. A wide range of places to live, whether one wants to own or to lease.
3. Places to work, shop, dine, learn, worship, or just be in nice public space - like streets & parks.
EDo is not yet the neighborhood it could and may become, but it's made great strides in the past decade.
It was the power of neighborhood that helped us keep our value declines much lower than the national average. And it will be the power of neighborhood that helps us see value increases in the coming decade.
Support the EDo neighborhood and its businesses. Get others to support them. Let's build a strong neighborhood and local economy together.
