If you have ever thought about selling a home in Southeast Texas, this year may be the best time ever. The Southeast Texas real estate market is ever changing and right now it has changed to a sellers market. The move in ready homes (priced right and staged right properties under $250,000) are often selling the first week they are on the market.
For a local agent like myself who has worked in the Southeast Texas market during the highs of the 2006 and the lows of 2008-2011, this is a great time for sellers.
Take a look at home sales by area:
-Total number is the total number of closed sales in the area so far this year.
-Days on market is from the first day the home is listed in the MLS until the day it closes. So 90 days on the market often means the home was really available less than 45 days since it normally takes approximately 45 days from contract to closing on a home.
If you are thinking about selling your home and want a professional marketing plan to help you take advantage of this sellers market to get top dollar for your home, contact me for a free home price analysis. You might be surprised at how much your home is worth.

So far this year, five homes have closed above the half million dollar mark. If you live in Southeast Texas you've heard of the neighborhoods: Brownstone, Barrington, Stonegate. One of sales was in Port Neches on King George. It was lovely.

At first it seemed like a good idea but convincing a four year old to be in a TV commercial wasn't as easy as planned. He did great. It was hot. Tried to smile. Love this little boy. and remember, "If you'd be happier in a new home, call me" as Owen says, "call my mom".
