South Georgia home builders say business is improving

Posted: Updated:

South Georgia Home builders say they're seeing an increase in the number of housing starts, especially in Lee County.

Southern Plantation Builders President Marcus Fletcher says they have eight homes under construction in Lee County, and more people are making plans.

He says after a down period, there are now better financing options for more families.

Southern Plantation Builders president Marcus Fletcher said  "Now there are some new programs in place, some no money down programs that people are able to take advantage of. So we are starting to see some of those people come through and putting in contracts, and we are selling some houses."

Fletcher says people seem to have more confidence in their jobs and want to take advantage of low interest rates.
