Muscle Shoals AL Real Estate - Homes For Sale/Pending/Sold - Market Report for October 2011     There were 12 homes sold in Muscle Shoals AL during the month of October 2011.  This figure is down from 20 sales for the month of Sept 2011.  Even though sales were down, pending sales almost doubled from the previous month. So this is still a good indication that our market is improving.      While sales are continuing to improve, the one thing I am noticing is the price point of homes sold.  The majority of sales are in the $100k-$150k price range.      The number of homes sold in Muscle Shoals Al has remained steady over the past 5 years.  To me, this is an indication that our market never took the hit that other areas did.  Muscle Shoals AL homes prices have remained steady as well.    M...

The Sound of the Shoals - Part 3 - The Birth of Rock and Roll and Rhythm and BluesPart Three of our series that explains why Muscle Shoals, Alabama is considered the "Hit Recording Capital of the World." The next generation of Shoals area music began when the legendary Sam Phillips began working as a broadcast engineer at WLAY radio in Muscle Shoals. He eventually relocated to Memphis, and on July 5, 1954, Phillips discovered a talent that could only be explained as "a white man who could sing with a black man's soul." Elvis Presley auditioned for Sam Phillips one day while working in his Sun Records studio in Memphis. He quickly signed Presley with his record label, and introduced the world to the man who would one day be known as the "King of Rock and Roll." With Elvis Presley's new f...

The Sound of the Shoals - Part 2 - BeginningsOn the banks of the Tennessee River in the northwest corner of Alabama, four small, thriving cities are joined together by a history that many of its own citizens have never explored. Many of the people in the area are completely unaware of the internation significance that this area, known as the Shoals Area, has had in the music industry throughout the world. Muscle Shoals, Alabama, the second largest of the four, has a unique place in music history that earned this nearly forgotten part of the country the title of "Hit Recording Capital of the World."Traces of the Past The former Muscle Shoals Sound studio sits peering across the Tennessee River beside a small, forgotten park in Sheffield, Alabama.

The Sound of the Shoals - Part 1 - Intro A few days ago I received an interesting tip. I was encouraged to begin using my Home Grown Real Estate blog to post about our local area. At first I thought it was a little silly to do so, but then I realized that I absolutely love our local history. I enjoy studying about the things that happened here, and I love telling people about it. I know my wife probably gets tired of hearing all the same stories over and over, but I just love telling them! I decided that the most interesting thing that I could write about would be the history of the recording industry of the Shoals Area.The Sound of the ShoalsWhy? Well, its interesting! So many people here have very little knowledge of the huge influence our little corner of the world had (and still has...

Or should that be, Ever begin? I just wanted to weigh in on this one.  Why would the State Highway Department ever begin construction on such a major project without having purchased all of the land needed for the highway expansion?  Could it be the way funds for such projects are allotted?  The completion of the expansion, to 6-lanes, of Wilson Dam Road is such a vital part of the growth of all of the communities through which this road passes.  The completion of this project will relieve the traffic congestion on Woodward Ave all the way across the Tennessee River into Florence. This must be completed in order to keep new businesses interested in coming to the area. But I ask again, Why are we in this situation in the first place? Please give me your thoughts.
