Recent numbers show Montgomery County home values are continuing to recover after the Great Recession.
Montgomery County Auditor Karl Keith says, while commercial property values remained stable with a less than 1 percent increase, residential values are up about 6 percent.
He says the increase in home values is good news for the housing market.
“To talk about a four-and-a-half-percent increase, yes, this is definitely good news. It reflects on the community as a whole as far as value, the overall economy of the community," Keith says.
