Not just in terms of getting good value for purchases, but also as a store of value in that an investment is certain to grow in value during the coming years, Wheeling offers outstanding value for home purchasers. Their large number of high quality domiciles are rapidly increasing in value due to pressure on the market resulting from oil and gas industry developments.

If you owned a home in Wheeling last year, it would be worth more than 30% more this year. It would also still be a bargain because prices were depressed in recent times.

Why is this important to us in Mon County? Because it points to the importance of two things. First, that growth increases wealth in areas where it is taking place. Gas and Oil growth is having a dramatic effect in Wheeling. We need to insure that we have access to those raw materials here in Mon County to help diversity our local economy with plastics manufacturing opportunities. Completing I-68 from Morgantown to Moundsville would insure that access, and benefit every community along the road. So gas and oil, and better infrastructure are very important going forward for us here in the Morgantown area.
