The Houston market is and historically has been among the best in the nation. We are currently experiencing a slow increase in the price of homes as our inventory is low and buyer activity is strong. For the first time in years we have seen the return of multiple offers on homes and calls from the seller's for highest and best offers from the interested parties. This mayhem is tempered by the appraisal process though, since the home needs to appraise for the sale price if a mortgage is involved, so many times the price that won the contract isn't the price it sells for since the appraised market value needs to be supported by past sales. The result is that we are seeing a gradual increase in property values, making is a great time for both buyers and sellers to buy and sell homes.

That is a wonderful area of the city. Other areas in that general southeast direction include Pearland, Friendswood and more. The Clear Creek school district has always been highly ranked, but each school varies and you would need to check that out depending on your situation.
This area of Houston has less trees in general, but is very close to Galveston Bay, Clear Lake and the gulf waters off of Galveston. The slow down and layoffs around the Johnson Space Center have caused some concerns, but growth in the oil patch has made the area grow in general. Plenty of new construction and areas that give you that small town feel. Need to keep your eye out for potential flood areas, but that is easy to do. Overall, a wonderful place to call home.
General real estate values are holding steady to moving up slightly in the Houston area. Every community is a bit different and there are still great bargains for buyers that have the ability to purchase. The best time to buy is NOW. The market conditions will not change greatly between the seasons. In general, more new listings come on the market in the early spring. Keep in mind ANYTHING on the water will be much more expensive that in-land and variety of homes to choose from will be limited. Let us know if we can help.
