Have you been looking to buy a home in Vidor, Little Cypress, or Mauriceville?  You are probably getting frustrated.  Take look at the latest home sales data from the SE Texas Board of Realtors.

Currently there are 83 homes listed for sale in Vidor and Little Cypress.  When you take out those that are being  sold "as is" with flood damage the number drops to 56.  

Priced between $80,000-$200,000 the number of homes for sale drops even further to just 22.  

My advice to sellers:  If you are thinking about selling there will never be a better time than this spring.  

My advice to buyers: Be ready to act fast.  The best homes hitting the market are selling within days.  You need to get pre-approved for a loan and be ready to make an offer as soon as you find a home you really like.  Its a tough market out there because of the shortage of homes available.
