Currently there are 21 homes for sale in Bay Glen and 11 of those are under contract.  This is exceptionally strong for this time of year.  Those homes range from approximately $130,000 to the high $180’s with the bulk falling in the 160 to $170k range.  Four builders built in this neighborhood; Village Builders, David Weekley, Brighton Homes and Ryland Homes.  Homes range from the 1,400 square feet to 2,300 feet and sit on an average lot of about 6,800 square feet.  Most homes will be 3-4 bedrooms, 2 to 2 and one half baths and almost all will have a 2 car garage.  I don’t ever remember seeing a 3 car garage in Bay Glen.  There are a small handful of 5 bedrooms. There have been 34 homes sold this year with an average price of $158,442.  The average number of days on the market is 58.  ...

  Interestingly there have been 14 single family home sales in Pine Brook this year and there were that same number during this time frame last year.  What has changed however is the number of days on the market, as well as the average sales price.  Last year saw an average sales price of $321,139 while this year that number is $$335,039.  The number of days to sell a home in Pine Brook is significantly less at 52 days on the market as compared to 98 last year. While prices are a bit higher, the lower interest rates will offset what a purchaser would have paid last year still giving them a great opportunity.  Of course homeowners in Pine Brook, will enjoy the benefit of a quicker and higher home sale. A little more than 50% of the market is “pending” or under contract right now with 11 ...

  Brookwood home sales have moved up with 48 homes sold in 2012. This number represents a 50% rise in sales up from 32 sales in 2011. The average sales price in 2011 was $272,624 while the average in 2012 was $256,115; a decrease  in price of 6%.   There’s no need for alarm as for whatever reason, the average home size sold in 2011 was 3,102 square feet while that number in 2012 was 3,003 so nearly 100 feet smaller.  Were Brookwood homebuyers opting for smaller homes? The number of days to sell a home in Brookwood was down also with an average days on market of 90 days as opposed to 100 days in 2011 so we are seeing shorter market times.  Given current market conditions, we’ll see a shorter market time as we approach the summer. Brookwood subdivision inventories remain low with only 10 ...

Northfork home sales have moved up with 43 homes sold in 2012.  This number represents a 67% rise in sales up from 29 sales in 2011; huge gains.  The average sales price in 2011 was $200,102 while the average in 2012 was $208,687; an increase in price of 4.3 percent. The number of days to sell a home in Northfork was down also with an average days on market of 87 days vs 137 days in 2011. Inventories remain low with only 16 homes for sale in the Northfork subdivision and 6 of those are under contract.  It was not unusual just a few years ago to see 30 or 40 homes for sale in Northfork at any given time.  February 2012 represents one of the highest “contracts pended” February months in the Northfork subdivision in many years.  Homeowners there would not usually see these kinds of numbers...

  Bay Glen Home sales have moved up with 71 homes sold in 2012. This number represents a 42% rise in sales up from 50 sales in 2011. The average sales price in 2011 was $152,953 while the average in 2012 was $158,616; an increase in price of 3.7%. The number of days to sell a home in Bay Glen was down also with an average days on market of 93 days vs 105 days in 2011. We continue to struggle with inventory with only 15 homes for sale in the Bay Glen subdivision and 8 of those are under contract. Contrast this with a few years ago when it was not at all unusual to have as many as 35 or 40 homes under contract. February 2012 represents one of the highest “contracts pended” February months in many years. Typically we don’t see this much of the market under contract until the late spring an...

  To stage or not to stage is often the subject of many debates. It may not be the greatest of a debates, but it has come to question many times. If you've never heard or read that staged homes show better and sell faster, then read on. Staging offers the opportunity for the buyer to envision themselves living in a property by giving them "perspective" on where they would actually place their own furniture. A furnished home just stands out over vacant homes. The truth is, if a property doesn't show as well as competing properties it is likely to sit on the market a little longer. Proper staging of your home, whether occupied or vacant, will help your home show better, sell quicker and demand a higher price. Something else that may pleasantly surprise you is, staging a vacant home isn't ...

The Houston area, in general, has a lot to offer its residents and visitors. The closer you get to the coastline the more options there are. This is particularly true for the Clear Lake area. Its close proximity to Houston and Galveston makes the Clear Lake area one of the greatest places to live in Texas. From taking in a game at Reliant Stadium or Minute Maid Park in Houston to listening to the sound of crashing waves and seagulls on the beaches of Galveston, there's surely something for everyone. Even if you never left the Clear Lake area, you will find plenty to keep you entertained. Here are just a few things to consider whether you're a resident or a visitor: Outdoor Life If you enjoy getting out of the house once in a while, Clear Lake Park has enough amenities to satisfy the ou...
