 I hosted an open house yesterday in a Coles Crossing home that has (thankfully) never flooded.  However, one of my open-house visitors was a homeowner whose Cypress home DID flood during Harvey.  She told me her current home DOES lie in the floodplain, but they did not realize it when they purchased.  "We are planning to sue the sellers for failure to disclose they were in a floodplain," she told me. My first thought was, "It IS possible that the flood maps have changed since the sellers purchased the home."  I also thought to myself, "Why didn't your REALTOR® inform you that the home you wished to purchase was in the floodplain? Or your insurance company?"  It will be interesting to see how their case turns out. I am thinking perhaps they were on the edge of a floodplain, but not actu...

If you are thinking about selling your Cypress home and you've wondered if now is a good time, here are some market statistics that may help you determine if it's the right time to sell.  The market is active with homes selling within typical days on market for their specific price range and area (as compared to recent trends).  Data provided below is divided by zip code to better target hyper-local market activity.  Remember that sold prices and days on market are averages of the total number of homes in a specific price range.  Some homes sold faster (or took longer) and at a higher percentage of original list price, which is also typical of market behavior. The quicker a home sells after going active on the market, the more likely the final sale price will be near or at full asking p...

THIRTEEN Coles Crossing homes SOLD during the month of April 2017 with prices ranging from $225,000 up to $457,500. Average sales price/sq. ft. was $103/sq. ft., however there was quite a range ($86 up to $124). Average time on the market before receiving an offer was 69 days, but again there was quite a bit of variance here.  The biggest two determinants of selling quickly is demand for the floorplan and PRICE.  12826 Bedford Falls Dr. - currently listed for $299990 on a quiet street in section 21! The smaller homes (2250 sq. ft. and under) seem to be moving FAST and draw multiple offers. Thinking of selling your COLES CROSSING home?  I love marketing COLES CROSSING--it is a wonderful subdivision to call home! Sonja PattersonExecutive Real Estate Services 750 William D Fitch Suite 430 ...

I toured several "for lease" homes yesterday in Fairfield with some wonderful clients.  Wonderful clients who sold their current home in 2 days, because they have lovingly maintained their cozy cottage and it was priced to sell! These prospective tenants are the cream of the crop.  With good credit scores, home-ownership experience, and high-cleanliness standards, my couple represent the landlord's "dream-tenants".   Fairfield Lap Pool  I have had a few past rental listings where the landlords have not maintained the home as well as I would if I were in their shoes.  The home sits for months with no offers to lease because, honestly, it screams "landlord doesn't care". An unkept yard, dead bugs inside the home, broken light fixtures, and moldy toilets will not attract a pristine tenant....

COLES CROSSING SALES CONTINUE TO PROVE STRONG IN 2017 with the average price/sq. ft. for the first quarter equal to $102.52 and the highest price/sq. ft. coming in at $121.34. Prices ranged from $202,000 for a 3 bedroom patio home in section thirty up to $412,750 for a 5-bedroom home with sparkling pool and spa in section one.  The average number of days on the market for these 18 homes was 86 days.  If a home has not received an offer in the first 30 days, it is usually due to overpricing.  The market is HOPPING this spring.  Currently (4/17/17) 22 COLES CROSSING homes are under contract. Wow!  That is amazing!  I expect this to be a busy summer! If you are thinking of buying or selling in COLES CROSSING or anywhere in the NW Houston area, give me a call.  I will assist you through the...

Whether you have school-aged children or not, it is always a good idea to check out the schools to which your future home is zoned.  Traditionally, those homes zoned to great schools will increase in value more rapidly than homes zoned to mediocre schools.  BEST SCHOOLS IN CYPRESS (CY-FAIR ISD), TX(per www.greatschools.org, March 2017) Elementary Schools Birkes                       10Millsap                     10Pope                          10Rennell                     10Robison                    10Sampson                  10Swenke                    10Warner                    10Ault                           9Farney                      9Keith                         9  Middle Schools Hamilton                 10Salyards                   10Smith                        10Spillane ...

For February 2017, drum-roll please......... Five Coles Crossing homes SOLD with an average price /sq. ft. of $100.50, and the highest price/sq. ft. was $115!!  I have spoken with two Coles Crossing sellers who plan to list their home in March, and within the last week SEVEN Coles Crossing homes were newly listed!! So, if you are thinking of listing your Coles Crossing home, call me!  March is a great time to place your home on the market, because buyers are already looking and less inventory/competition exists now than in the busier months of May/June/July! SONJA PATTERSON with Executive Real Estate Services, www.har.com/SPatterson, 713.303.9463
