Over the past 3 years we have seen many homes go into foreclosure or sell as a short sale. This has been the result of the military cutback and over supply of new homes being built. As a result, this has hurt homes values and made it difficult for civilian and military families when it came time to sale their home.
Over the past year, we are starting to see an improvement in home values and with the election of Donald Trump, I think Camp Lejeune will experience positive growth which will lead to more Marines and their families buying homes. Along with the positive growth of the base and personnel will come a positive attitude to buying a home vs renting.
