It is extremely convenient to the new Exxon campus being built, The Woodlands, and Bush Intl. Airport. There are a number of reasons for the sales listings: retired folks moving further out or out-of-state, people wanting to sell their home and build a bigger one--in Benders Landing or elsewhere, speculative builders trying to get product on the market to capitalize on the Exxon proximity, etc.
A number of the sellers are trying to take advantage of the very generous part of the IRS code that enables a married couple to sell their primary residence and exclude $500,000 in capital gains on their taxes. That means that they can put $500,000 in the bank. If you repeat the process, and a number of owners in Benders Landing are now on their second and third homes, this puts you in a great retirement situation--or set up Roth IRAs for the kids, or fund their college, etc..
If you have any questions about how this works, want to take advantage of it, or if you want cash back at closing--our commissions really are negotiable, email or call me for details.
