What Sold in May in Mid-County?

Tex_ritter_park_nederland_txFor those of us that call Southeast Texas home, we know that when someone refers to Mid-County they are talking about the cities of Groves, Nederland, Port Neches and Port Arthur.  When some refers to Beaumont they are talking about Beaumont and the more rural county areas outside the proper city limits.

However, sometimes our area is combined in a MSA "Market Survey Area" which combines both Beaumont and Port Arthur together.  Texas A&M Real Estate Center offers some of the best data about our area and all of Texas for that matter.  You can find housing sales, building permits, employment statistics and much more if you are really curious and have a lot of time to spare.  If you are like most of us- short of time these days- and you don't have time to research the housing statistics about Southeast Texas on your own.  Have no worries.  You can still know the inside scoop about what's going on in our area. Just read the blog. 

Here's the recap of Mid-County residential sales activity for May, 2008.

  • 80 sales closed
  • $126,000  (rounded to even thousand) was the average sales price
  • Over 10 million in dollar volume changed ownership
  • 82 days on the market is what the average home spent from listing to sale

As always you can request information about any neighborhood, city, town or even street in Southeast Texas and I'll research it for you.  Southeast Texas Real Estate Talk is for anyone who wants to know more about the housing market.  Now you know what sold in May in Mid-County.

Unemployment stats are depressing but there are still many high paying jobs posted on employment sites i.e.


There still seems to be a strong demand for professional talent and therfore some people are making good salaries and therefore housing should be decent.
