Study puts local housing markets in good light

A new study shows some local cities as the healthiest housing markets in the state.

SmartAsset has named Arab, Guntersville, Boaz, and Albertville among the ten healthiest housing markets in Alabama.

The rankings take into account the number of days homes sit on the market, the number of years people live in homes, and the number of homes sold at losses.

Arab sits second on the statewide list. Guntersville sits fifth. Boaz places eighth and Albertville checks in at ninth.

The city that has edged out Arab for the top spot: Tuscumbia.
