Columbia, SC - A Great Place to Live

Best Cities for Jobs!
Forbes Magazine recently posted information on their website related to Best Cities for Jobs in 2008. Columbia, South Carolina has ranked very well in this study. The top 100 cities are listed and Columbia ranks at #31 (the highest ranked South Carolina city). Other ranked cities in North Carolina and South Carolina: Raleigh, NC #7; Greenville, SC #37; Charlotte, NC #50; Greensboro, NC #66. Rankings for the TOP 100 cities for job growth are based on the following factors: unemployment rates, job growth, income growth, median household income and cost of living for full-year 2006.
Most Affordable Places to Live!
There is great news for the Irmo area also (my office is located in the Irmo area)! CNNMoney.com ranks Irmo #12 in their study of Best Places to Live / Where Homes are Most Affordable. The really cool fact is that Irmo is the #1 ranked Southern city! The top 11 positions are dominated by cities in Ohio, New York, and Pennsylvania. Irmo is located just minutes from downtown Columbia and only minutes from beautiful Lake Murray.

Any clue whether these empty houses have a homeowners exemption filed with the county? If so I wonder if that would be fraud. Just asking
