An Excerpt From my Book: Jack and Jill Go Up the Home Ownership Hill

Something a little different…an Excerpt From my Book: Jack and Jill Go Up the Home Ownership Hill:

“We return to our heroes Jack and Jill, with Jack returning from his monthly visit to the doctor.  “Jill, I’m back, Jill,”  shouted Jack as he entered their tiny condominium. “Yes Jack, I know you’re home, I could hear you when you walked up, through these paper-thin walls,”  said Jill crossly. “SOOO, get on with it, how was your appointment with Doctor Foster,”  enquired Jill?  “He told me that, yes, indeed, I have a brain and it appears to be mended.  ANNNNNND, no more monthly visits,”  Jack smiled.  “Perfect, Jack, it’s time for us to dive into our next check point,”  said Jill eagerly.  And this is what they read:

[ ]Chapter 5 Keep AN OPEN MIND

When you are searching for your next home you MUST keep an OPEN MIND. Unfortunately, your next home will not come alive and tell you, “I’m the perfect home for you,” while trumpets play, and confetti falls from the sky.  You will pick your next home by taking the time to research and visit the homes.  It is kind of like an interview process…you will interview many before you find the best fit for your needs…”

That is just a small excerpt from Jack and Jill Go Up the Home Ownership Hill The Home Buyer Checklist You’ve Been Looking For.  This book is available in paperback and Kindle versions on Amazon.com or contact me for a complimentary copy.

An Early Look a February Numbers The Woodlands, Texas

As February winds down we can start to look at how the numbers are shaking out here in The Woodlands, Texas.  Listing inventory is up this year with 281 listings versus last year’s 253 listings.  Contracts written in January were 65 this year with 68 last year.  So what type of market is The Woodlands, Texas in right now?  First let’s set the stage based off what real estate economist believe:

 

Less than six-month of For Sale Inventory= Seller’s market

Six Month Supply of For Sale Inventory=Balanced market

More than six-month of For Sale Inventory= Buyer’s market

 

Looking at all of The Woodlands the months of inventory is sitting at 4.5, so a seller’s market.  If you look at the price range $0-$500,000 you are looking at a seller’s market.  $501,000 and up is a buyer’s market.  Now that changes if we look at individual areas of The Woodlands or we look at it by sales price.  Real estate is local so while looking at these numbers can give some insight it is best to look specifically in your price range in your neighborhood.

 

Where can you get that information?  I’m glad you asked.  Shoot me an email at Scott@ScottCulberson.com.  I would love the opportunity to help you to…
