My son said to me last night, "Well 2017 is 1/12 gone!"Oh my, he is so right!  And, three more lucky buyers purchased Coles Crossing homes during the month of January 2017!Prices were $209,000 for a 3 bedroom/2 bathroom home in the cottage section, $260,000 for a 3 bedroom home with a study, and $322,000 for a large 4-bedroom, 3.5 bath home close to the jogging trails!Average number of days on the market for these 3 homes was 127.  The lag time was due in part to overpricing the home and/or the timing of listing the home.  NOW is a great time to list your home for sale.  With low inventory, sellers are in a more advantageous position now than in June when the inventory will be at its peak! And yes, motivated buyers ARE looking now!If you wish to know your Coles Crossing home's current v...

Twelve Months 2016 Market Report for Far West - MLS Area 25 I always prefer to examine year-to-date data throughout any given year and look at year to year comparisons for discovering market trends as I think there is too much volatility on a given month to month basis to make any good conclusions in this areas. My primary market is South Katy or MLS area 36. This Report covers MLS Area 25 of Far West/ North Katy. I am also interested in MLS area 37 Fort Bend West; MLS 29 Fort Bend-Sugar Land and Stafford plus a few others in Cypress TX.  Twelve months YTD 2016 versus Twelve months months YTD 2015 for MLS area 25 or Far West/North Katy comparison shows some interesting trends which probably will continue into 2017.   Units sold in 2016 have increased from 3,661 in 2015 to 3,976 during 2...

Although, most people thought that Houston market was tough due to the oil downturn in 2016; Towne Lake faired extrememly well. This was the 2nd best year Towne Lake has had and that was 313 homes sold and closed. The sweet spot here in Towne Lake is the 400-500K we had sales at all price points starting at 200;s  and they go well over the million dollar  mark for homes.  Some of the builders in the Towne Lake area are of coourse the best David Weekley, Newmark, Coventry, Plantation,  Partners in Building, just to name of few. There are also the Custom Builders for the 2+ acre homes. The people that seem to be moving into Towne Lake are people from Heights area who now have families and want to migrate into the suburbs so that their children can go to highly acclaimed schools. When aske...

Fall Back Time  on Sunday November 6, 2016  I am writing to blog to remind everyone in advance of the time change which is to occur this weekend here in Katy TX plus most of the US. It is very easy to forget and obviously havoc can and does ensue.  It is the time of year to think about the end of Daylight Savings Time (DST) and setting your clocks, watches and timepieces back one hour. On Sunday November 6, 2016 at  2 AM daylight savings time officially ends and all timepieces need to be reset one hour back. I always use the old saying of “ Spring forward and Fall back” to remember what we have to do with setting the time. Set those timepieces back when you go to bed unless you are awake at 2 AM. I know I will not be awake at that time of the night.  Some countries around the World such...

Home Buyers/Sellers - Hire One Agent or Two? It’s pretty common to be in the situation of needing to both sell your home and buy a new one at the same time. While that may sound and actually be stressful, you are never alone in the process when you use a REALTOR®. Some buyers may elect to use the same REALTOR® for both the selling and buying of homes. There is no “best” way or answer, but I do have some pluses and minuses to help you make a decision. Please take the time to read the article I posted the link to below.  As an Accredited Buyer’s Representative (ABR®) and competent Realtor in Katy and Cypress TX, I know the ins and outs of the home buying process. I am here for you every step of the way. I look forward to hearing from you and working with you! Should You Use One Agent for...

Attended 5 Years and Younger Soccer Game Today - What a Hoot!  I need to explain why we were there today at this youth soccer game in Cypress TX. My youngest step-son’s significant other gave birth to his daughter and our granddaughter in July. She also has a 4 year old boy. He is just old enough to play youth soccer and he was signed up to play. The game started early this morning  and we went to see James play. They now live in Cypress which is close to where her family resides.  It has been many years since I have attended a soccer game at this age level. My son and daughter both played at the age of 4. My youngest step-son started playing when he was 5-6 we think and I attended his games as Yolanda and I were married back then. My oldest step-son started playing I believe when he wa...

SEVEN homes SOLD in Coles Crossing during the month of September 2016.  Prices ranged from $212,000 up to $490,000 and the average number of days on the market prior to receiving an agreed-upon offer was 55 days.  The average price/sq. ft. varied widely amongst these seven homes, because there was quite a variety sold this month.  Highest price per sq. foot $141.51 awarded to a one-story home in section 25 with a 29,000+ sq. ft. lot!    There are currently 13 Coles Crossing homes which are "pending" or under contract and set to close soon.So, stay tuned for the October report! SONJA PATTERSON with RE/MAX REALTY CENTER, 12810 Telge Rd.  Cypress, TX 77429713.303.9463             sonja.patterson@sbcglobal.net               www.har.com/SPatterson

In the late 90s, we experienced a home invasion of sorts when we lived in Katy, TX (west Houston), and in 2001 our very new home in NW Houston also experienced a similar problem.  The most recent home invasion I was made aware of --was my clients' vacant property in Coles Crossing.   Is crime that bad in the area?  NO.  However, our soil contains numerous tiny insects that LOVE to munch on wood, and if conditions are ripe around your home--they will invade your space as well.  Subterranean termites often manifest their presence in the spring, however my Coles Crossing listing did not show signs of termite activity until August--and the weather was amazingly DRY!  Our first clue was the paint seemed to "bubble" ever so slightly on the window sill.  A curious prospective buyer or buyer's ...
