Last year, average home listing prices in Houston decreased 10.4 percent, perhaps reflecting the waning popularity of the local area. The average listing price this year is $172,488 from a previous $192,527. During the same period, inventory declined by 16.7 percent. The number of listings in this area noticeably dropped from 12 to 10 homes on the market last year, somewhat constricting the market for new buyers looking to move to this area. Several residential properties in Houston feature main-floor laundry rooms so you can have the comfort and convenience of doing laundry on the floor that you use the most. Many of the homes here allow you to enjoy the warmth and comfort that comes with a real log fire in your home.
