New Study Reveals Impact Of Habitat Builds In Tennessee And In Chattanooga

New Study Reveals Impact Of Habitat Builds In Tennessee And In Chattanooga
posted September 26, 2011

While most know Habitat for Humanity as a builder of affordable homes, research by the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee reveals that Habitat's work in Tennessee has significant economic impact.

"Researchers determined that during fiscal year 2010-2011, the 217 home builds and 51 rehab projects conducted statewide by Habitat for Humanity affiliates supported an average of 6.24 full-time full-year jobs per completed home," said John Lamb, director of Development with Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area, and board member, Habitat for Humanity of Tennessee. "When you include the impact of all Tennessee Habitat affiliate's payroll and non-payroll spending this equals 1,511 jobs supported statewide."

In terms of dollars, the homes built by Tennessee Habitat affiliates in 2010 created $55.7 million in impact during 2010, or more than $230,000 per completed home according to the study.

To assess the impact of Tennessee's 51 Habitat for Humanity affiliates, staff at the Center for Business and Economic Research at the University of Tennessee looked at total payroll, employees, construction expenses, as well as non-payroll expenses incurred by affiliates in the operation of their programs during fiscal year 2010-2011 and applied Tennessee specific economic models (RIMSII) to the data.
"Bringing these numbers home to Chattanooga, Habitat for Humanity of Greater Chattanooga Area helped 7 families have simple, decent and affordable homes last year, engaged thousands of people in making a difference in their community, and created $1,610,000 in immediate impact on the local and state economy," said Mr. Lamb.

Anecdotal evidence, in the form of quotes from sub-contractors and material suppliers included in the study suggests that Habitat projects are providing a lifeline to companies who might not otherwise remain in business, according to Mr. Lamb.

"While the pace of building varies from affiliate to affiliate, Habitat's process is focused on creating immediate opportunity for families and then recycling their mortgage payments into the creation of more homes through Habitat's zero-interest funding model."

"While we are proud of the economic impact of our work, our ambitions are much higher," he said.

"Habitat is working for the day when everyone, in our city, state, country and world can have the chance to enjoy the benefits of simple, decent and affordable shelter. Opportunity creates a climate that changes the direction of individual’s lives, and bears fruit in terms of better quality of life for the whole community that cannot be measured financially."

Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association Meeting Is Oct. 10
posted September 28, 2011

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association’s next community meeting will be held Oct. 10, at 6:30 p.m. at the Red Bank Community Service. Red Bank City Commissioner Greg Jones will be presenting to the group about priorities for changes to the residential codes.

All Red Bank residents are encouraged to attend as Commissioner Jones will be accepting input from the community. He and Commissioner Floy Pierce are the two city commissioners who have accepted the challenge to update the city’s codes.

“Red Bank’s codes were written in the 1950’s. Clearly, they are in need of an overhaul to address current issues of our community. We applaud the Commission for tackling this duty and welcome the opportunity to assist in the process,” said Erin Creal, chair of Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association.
“Residents with concerns of conditions in their neighborhoods should be active in this process to achieve optimal results. We really need a cohesive effort to make this work.”

Residents who can’t make it to this meeting should send their input via email to redbanknpa@gmail.com no later than Oct. 9.

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association is a group of Red Bank residents that are committed to helping the city be a more desirable place to live. Their community meetings are the second Monday of every month at the Red Bank Community Center behind Erlanger North. All Red Bank residents are welcome to attend.

Hixson Neighborhood Code Inspections Scheduled

Hixson Neighborhood Code Inspections Scheduled
posted September 26, 2011

Beverly P. Johnson, administrator, Department of Neighborhood Services and Community Development, announced systematic neighborhood inspections are being conducted by the Code Enforcement division in Hixson.

Systematics are inspections carried out on a routine basis by teams of code enforcement inspectors checking every property in designated neighborhoods to prevent the accumulation of violations and to maintain healthy and safe conditions for residents. The inspections are randomly performed in neighborhoods throughout the city and in each council district.

Because systematic inspections are done as a courtesy, no citations are issued. Instead, homeowners receive a courtesy notice advising them of specific violations and given an opportunity to bring the property into compliance within a specified time period. If the owner fails to achieve compliance within the courtesy period, routine procedures for attaining compliance go into effect.
The following area of Hixson, council district 3 will be inspected on Sept. 30. The boundaries for inspection are:

North: Sandswitch Road
South: Old Lower Mill Road
East: Esquire Drive
West: Sandswitch Road

Teams of code enforcement inspectors will be going block by block in this neighborhood inspecting each parcel for City code violations including litter, overgrowth, abandoned vehicles and housing code violations. Signs will be posted in the neighborhood in advance to advise residents that the code inspectors will be present.

For more information, contact Beverly P. Johnson at 423 425-3700.

Local Realty Sales Up 13.5 Percent Over Previous Month

Local Realty Sales Up 13.5 Percent Over Previous Month
posted September 21, 2011

The local real estate market continues to defy the odds, and the downward trend throughout the rest of the U.S., according to data released by the Multiple Listing Service (MLS) of the Greater Chattanooga Association of Realtors.

In August, Southeast Tennessee and the Northwest Georgia area reported the sale of 595 residential units, a 13.5 percent increase compared to the previous month’s sales, and an eye-opening 24 percent advance from one year ago.

Local Realtors Association President Jennifer Grayson said that customers are reacting to the market’s affordability, and the high quality of options available to buyers. “Admittedly, we’ve seen a slight uptick in foreclosures this month, which to some degree, helped to increase sales.” She added, “However, this was accompanied by a significant decrease in our inventory, down from 10.9 months in July, to 9.4 months in August, which we feel is getting much closer to the normal levels we expect to see over the long run.”

Ms. Grayson also noted that another sign of good market health is to be found in the value of all transactions. “Our members sold over $92 million in local area property last month, which is a testament both to our region’s continued healthy outlook and the dedicated hard work of our members. We always expect August to be a good month, but this was our best since 2007.”

Chattanooga Area MLS President Dan Griess said, “I believe as well, that our decrease in the median price during August also contributed to the higher sales. The median is a statistic that we follow closely because it is a great barometer of the current total value of the market. However, I think the month-over-month decrease was enough to spur sales but not significant enough to generate any alarm about the fundamental soundness of our market’s overall value.”

“Days on the market were up by only a week during August. I agree with Jennifer that we’re seeing positive indicators on where we’re trending, and that our realtors are getting the job done for sellers and buyers. Not only was this the top month of 2011, but it’s also the best since June of last year. I’m optimistic about where we’re heading now, and looking for positive things moving into 2012.”
