  “BEST TIME TO SELL IS MARCH THRU AUGUST”    HOLDS TRUE IN ANY MARKET !!   “BEST TIME TO SELL IS MARCH THRU AUGUST” IS A STATEMENT THAT HOLDS TRUE IN ANY MARKET, WHETHER BOOM OR BUST.  Recently I was researching property statistics for the last few years looking for anything that could be considered “good news”, and this same time frame repeated itself year after year.  The graphs begin moving upward in March, peaking in June, and then working its way back down by September.  Of course, this is not earth shattering information; however, it struck me as something that needed to be re-emphasized – IF YOU ARE PLANNING ON SELLING IN 2011, YOUR BEST CHANCE FOR SUCCESS IS NOW!   If your property is already on the market, re-evaluate the current competition.  Update those wintery pictures!  W...

BAYOU VISTA REAL ESTATE MARKET UPDATE.  Although we sold 50 homes within our small community in 2010, the current MLS listings of 57 properties translates into well over a year's worth of inventory.  As you can see from the graph (2008-2010) above from HAR's MLS statistics, sales prices were continuing to drop through out 2010.  Most of the homes that sold were in the lower price ranges.  The higher priced homes just are not quite moving yet.  We have however, seen new construction starting to move again, and averaging $178 per square foot, which is well above what resale homes are getting.  As an average, a 2 or 3 bedroom home with less than 1500 sf is selling at $120 per sf.  While a 2 bedroom home with more than 1500 sf is only getting $82 per sf, and a 3 bedroom home with more than...

BAYOU VISTA REAL ESTATE MARKET TRENDS UPWARD IN 2010.  According to statistics in Houston MLS, comparing homes sales from January 1 to September 23 last year to this year, 2010 has seen a 25% increase in the volume of homes sold, as well as an increase in average price per square foot; $105/sf in 2009 and $111/sf in 2010.  Keep in mind, these are averages - some properties sold for more, some sold for less. This is great news for the waterfront area that has seen an overall reduction in value of 25% over the last 3 years.  The increases are despite the large number of overpriced homes still on the market well over a year.  And despite the larger than usual number of foreclosures in the subdivision. However, looks like the average "days on the market" for properties that have sold in 201...
