Spring has sprung and if you’re pretty much anywhere in the great Houston area which is also known as the Piney Woods pollen is everywhere. With this pollen we have been having some allergy problems and speaking of problems I heard they finally put out that oil tanker fire in Deer Park.
More importantly if you are in the market for a home this is a perfect time–homes are coming on the market, but they are also going off the market daily sooooo you need to get your game plan in place and get moving if you’re looking to buy a home. If you are looking to sell your home, you’re not behind yet, but you will be if you wait a couple weeks.
It’s time to get you outside and do some planting, so your landscaping pops and you get that nice color. Maybe a firecracker bush maybe some pansies, maybe some marigolds. I’m just throwing out some pretty color flowers. I have no idea if spring is the right season for these plants. I don’t have a green thumb but I respect the hard work of those that do. The point is BRING ON THE COLOR.
Let’s remember the front of your home is the first thing that buyers see so make that first impression count. Buyers if you see the front of the home is beautifully taken care of odds are the inside has been taken care of as well. Sellers, don’t forget that buyers DO look for the small details, the things that show them that you take care of your home. They want your home to be their next home, take the time, put in the work and plant that spring COLOR.

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…
