I have a special interest in how a town lives with an army base in it because I live near Clarksville TN, home of the 101 first airborne division the screaming eagles.
This interest started when I moved to this area and realized that a town with an army base has different needs then any other town that has no connection with the army. I found that certain businesses where more present than in all other towns I ever lived.
What I first realized was that for instance real estate in Clarksville TN was a very big industry.
Reason for this is that many soldiers move in and out of Clarksville and this means that there is a constant movement in the housing market in a town like this. This means that there is more room for real estate agents to operate and make a descent living.
Not only there is a buyers and sellers market that it constant changing, but also in the segment for rental and apartments there is a constant coming and going of people.
The second largest market is in my opinion the market of the locksmiths in Clarksville TN that is a booming business.
What I think is the reason for that is that every time someone moves and someone else moves in the locks are being changed most of the time. At least I would do that for sure to prevent that someone else walks around with the keys to my house or apartment. A locksmith can also make a nice living with opening car doors and doors of houses that people lost their keys from.
What I consider the third largest business opportunity in a town like Clarksville is the world of lawn service clarksville tn.
This is very easy to explain if we take in consideration that we all would like to have a nice lawn, but when you just moved or in the case of military personal have different duties or are out of town for training there is not much time left to cut the grass on your days of.
Finding someone who does affordable lawn care is then the route to go to take care of the yard.
