Houston Home Sales Solid

March 2011

January brought cold temperatures to the Houston area, but that didn’t stop the Houston housing market from heating up. January saw increases in both sales volume and average prices, with the average price of single-family homes reaching the highest level ever for a January in Houston.

February temperatures were also frigid, and while the sales volume did dip following a feverish push in volume, median home prices in Houston rose to the highest levels ever recorded for a February in Houston. Foreclosure sales made up a smaller amount of the overall sales volume, and the median price of for foreclosures fell 8.1% on a year-over-year basis.

So what does all of this mean for home buyers and sellers in the Houston region? If you are looking to purchase a home you can shop with confidence, knowing that our region has been one of the most stable markets in the nation. If you are selling your home you’ll be happy to know that the so called “shadow inventory” does not seem to be casting an ugly shadow on the market, and a carefully planned and executed marketing strategy should end with a successful sale.
