Lexington SC Real Estate – New Schools on the Horizon for Lexington and White Knoll

Lexington SC Real Estate – New Schools on the Horizon for Lexington and White Knoll

Owners of Lexington SC Real Estate will see some progress in the way of new schools starting in 2009 according to a recent article in the Lexington Chronicle.  The school bond, which was passed in the fall of 2008 will fund 5 new schools in total.  Two elementary schools (scheduled to open in 2010 and 2011), a middle school, and a high school in the Lexington attendance area, and a new White Knoll area elementary school.  These new schools are an important part of the healthy growth process of the Lexington District One, which saw 1,500 new students in the past two years.  This figure goes a long way in convincing people that our school system is a big factor influencing poeple moving to our area.  I know that many current and future residents are anxious to see these new schools open their doors!


The Lexington market saw a huge jump this past week.  In part to some new construction coming on the market, but the sales were also good.  Irmo followed a great week up with moderate performance for the week.  Lake Murray real estate continues to be the slowest moving in the market as evidenced by the numbers.  Chapin sales have continued to be solid and listings are good as well.  Columbia and Northeast Columbia were both up big for the week.  These numbers do indicate our market is heading in the right direction.  While we continue to face some challenges in these economic times, it is very encouraging to continue to see more and more buyers and sellers in the marketplace.
