Are you ready for stiff competition—and maybe even a bidding war—to get into that oh-so-perfect starter home you’ve been eyeing online? If you’re a Millennial who’s shopping for a home, that’s exactly the type of hot real estate market that Spring 2017 has in store. According to a recent report from Zillow, there were 3% fewer homes on the market this February than the same time last year. In addition, the average price of available homes is 7% higher than in 2016. This turnaround in a once sluggish market has hit Millennials especially hard.
Annual Memorial Scholarship Contest
In 1992, the scholarship program was dedicated to Lisa J. Stubbs, a Keesler Federal employee of over 8 years. While employed full time at the credit union, Lisa attended night classes, working toward her degree. Lisa died at the age of 25 after a lifelong struggle with cystic fibrosis. Since Lisa’s courage and determination were an inspiration to all who knew her, the scholarship program was renamed in her honor in hopes that her spirit of achievement would inspire others to reach new heights.
