MURFREESBORO, Tenn. (WMOT) -- Tennessee’s housing market cooled in the first quarter, even while job creation accelerated.
A first quarter analysis by the Business and Economic Research Center at Middle Tennessee State University shows that home construction fell by just over four percent compared to the final quarter of 2012. Home sales stalled and foreclosures are on the rise again.
A $2.5 million bequest from the estate of economist James M. Buchanan to the Middle Tennessee State University Honors College was announced today (May 9) in special ceremonies outside the Paul W. Martin Sr. Honors Building.
Buchanan family member Jeff Whorley of Indianapolis, Ind., made the formal gift announcement to MTSU President Sidney A. McPhee, Honors College Dean John Vile, invited guests, the campus community and alumni and friends of the university.
