Top 4 Reasons to Move to Jasper, AL

  • Strong rental market! Approximately 24 percent of the houses in Jasper are rented. The best place to look for rental homes is south of Highway 69, which has the highest density of residential properties. Craving the country life instead? Drive north on Brakefield Dairy Road and circle back east on Hillsdale Road, which leads to the Walker County Airport, and look for rent to own houses that sit on larger parcels of land. Are those birds singing in the distance, or is it the happy laughter of people discovering that three quarters of Jasper renters are paying less than $600 per month?
  • Best barbecue on the face of the earth! Agree or disagree! Just plan on eating some fine southern BBQ that melts in the mouth. The Green Top BBQ has been around for eons... well, at least since Harry Truman was president. Full Moon BBQ and Jim N' Nick's BBQ have not been in business as long, but that does not stop them from making big barbecue promises in the form of tender ribs and pork sandwiches.
  • Get a lot of house for the money! Jasper's rental market is mostly single-family homes and not apartments. Over 67 percent of the rental homes have three bedrooms, so everyone can have their own bedroom, extra storage, or office space. Find great rentals by cruising the neighborhood enveloped by Highway 69 to the north, Elliott Boulevard to the west, Gamble Avenue to the east, and Twentieth Street West in the south.
  • Make your own entertainment! Lewis Smith Lake is a 21,200-acre reservoir that straddles three counties. Walker County is home to Jasper, and Jasper claims a portion of the lake. There are 500 miles of shoreline along a 35-mile stretch. Residents can fish, boat, and swim to their hearts' content. Of course, not everyone likes to fish and swim, so they are likely to be found at the popular Jasper Bowling Center, where the sound of strikes has echoed since 1973.
