Looking at the Pearland TX real estate market snapshots, I see wee had a slight downturn in property values for the months of May.  But I also see we sold more real estate in Pearland TX last month than we have since Aug 2008.  So with that being said, I still feel buying real estate in Pearland is a smart buy.  Pearland real estate is still on the increase in value... We are still have a higher sales price than we had 2 years ago. As you can see from this next chart, the total number of home under contract is on a very steep incline and has surpassed pre-Ike numbers... This is just another key indicator of how strong real estate is in the Pearland TX area.  The Pearland area has more house under contract at the end of May 2009 than it has had in the past 2 years.

A couple months ago when President Obama announced his housing recovery plans, he talked in terms of "responsible" home owners who need help to stay in their primary residence.  He did not want to help "speculators who took risky bets on a rising market and bought homes not to live in but to sell." His intent was admirable, as homeownership is a valued cornerstone of the American way.  To imply that all other property owners were "speculators" and to make that a dirty word was unduly harsh.  In a country where most people start out renting and where some people happily rent all their lives, investment in rental property is an honorable tradition - and a necessity.  Since few people buy investment property as a charitable enterprise, buying a property at a low price, rehabbing it, and ho...

The Pearland TX real estate market continues to shine very bright. Looking at the trends over the last 2 years, you can see the Pearland TX housing market is doing better than ever. In April 2007 the average sales price was at an all time high of $192000 and in April 2008 the average sales price jumped to $203000 and in April 2009, Pearland is setting new records with an average sales price of $210000. So the average sales price in Pearland TX is up $18000 in the last 3 years... And I for one say that is great. Now I will say the Pearland TX real estate market has slowed in volume. So what does that mean? It means that not as many houses are selling or for Sale. Pearland only has about 3.9 months of inventory to sell at this time and is what is driving up the price. Before Ike hit our a...
