Make Your Move to Buchanan County!

Living in the community in which you  work is beneficial to you and your employer.  The shorter commute, the greater the opportunity to become vested in your community and your place of work.  Buchanan County communities are great places to live and the Buchanan County Economic Development Commission (BCEDC) is making it easier for commuting workers to find available rental properties.  Work here and live here!

BCEDC recently developed a database of Rental Options for Buchanan County.  An information flier will be sent to businesses throughout the county to be posted in employee break rooms.  The fliers have contact information for Buchanan County rental companies, the types of rentals they have (homes or apartments) and which community the rentals are located.  By making this information readily available to those who are already working here makes the idea of relocating here more of a reality.the county to be posted in employee break rooms.  The fliers have contact information for Buchanan County rental companies, the types of rentals they have (homes or apartments) and which community the rentals are located.  By making this information readily available to those who are already working here makes the idea of relocating here more of a reality.

Last year the Buchanan County Economic Development Commission (BCEDC) along with Buchanan County and its communities, had a Housing Needs Assessment completed for Buchanan County.  This assessment showed that because the population is increasing and the size of families is decreasing, the number of housing units in Buchanan County needed to be increased.   Consequently, Buchanan County is seeing a surge in the development and building of housing units, including both apartments and single-family homes.

According to the latest Laborshed study available (2015), we have almost 3,000 people commuting into Buchanan County to work.  Of those traveling into the county to work, there is a portion that want to live where they work.  These individuals may just be starting out in their first job, changing jobs or may just be looking for the quality living that can be found in Buchanan County.   Those currently living outside of the area may not know what rental or housing opportunities are available within the county.  The BCEDC rental information will make it easier for those who work in the county, but do not live here, to find a housing option they like.  To download the PDF Click Rental-Housing & Realtors
