Fayette's Full of 'For Sale' Signs
Ferry has been a Realtor in Howard County for nearly five years, but this is the first time he has seen 40 homes on the Fayette market at the same time.
More new homes also makes it harder to sell older ones, plus price increases keep many potential buyers in their current homes.
"I think if the area were publicized more, you'd have a lot more people here," said Fayette resident Robert Baker. "It's the best-kept secret in the Midwest."
The Bakers retired to Fayette 10 years ago from San Diego, Calif.
