There's No Place Like Home...especially if "home" is in Hoover

Looking for a place to call home? Look in Hoover. With its unique combination of family values, convenience, culture and civic pride, Hoover has everything a place for people of all ages at all stages of life. And according to the real estate professionals in the area, Hoover practically sells itself.

"Many find Hoover such an attractive place to live because it offers all the amenities of a large city in a small, friendly and community environment," said Dee McGraw, outreach and sales coordinator for Prime Communities, Inc.

"Small and large families as well as singles can all find unsurpassed dining, entertainment, schools and libraries in a safe setting here, and great shopping is just a stone's throw away."
Richard Head, a residential specialist with RE/MAX Advantage, agrees. "We have most anything people could want," he said, "and there's a strong demand for both new and resale homes." Head, himself a Hoover resident, also noted that while Hoover has outstanding city schools and city services, the city's tax base is quite reasonable. "Speaking from personal experience, Hoover is the ideal place for my family to live and work," he said.

Several Real Estate agents are serving the Hoover Area. Mary Milton, Susan Bell, Richard Head and Javetta Lodge are active Chamber Members and experienced Realtors. Details>>

The Trace Crossings community features traditional style homes on large, wooded lots, lakes and a system of biking and walking trails. Six elegant new neighborhoods surround the fabulous Ross Bridge conference center and golf course, where the demand for home sites has thus far exceeded developers' expectations. Of the neighborhoods' combined total of 500 lots, 300 had been developed and sold to builders by the end of 2005.
