How did the Spring TX Real Estate Market fare for 2008? If you listen to the national media you would believe that very few homes sold and the homes that did sell sold at garage sale prices.
But what the media reports on at the national level is not always reflective of what is going on in our local real estate market.
The truth according to our local MLS numbers for Area 13 (the majority of the area has a Spring TX mailing address) is
In comparison to the last five years, 2008 was a bad year for the Spring Texas real estate market. But bad is a relative term especially when you compare 2008 to some of the best years our local market has experienced. Sure, I would have liked to have more transactions during 2008. But I also know Realtors in parts of Florida and California who wished their markets fared as well as our Spring Texas real estate market did in 2008.
Our real estate market has not experienced the huge price appreciation and thus not the corresponding huge price depreciation as other markets. And instead of exciting and volatile I would describe our real estate market as stable. And I like stable. I don’t know if that means I am boring person or not. But when it comes to the real estate market I will take a stable market instead of a highly volatile market any day of the week, month, or year.
Give us a call at 281.804.8626, if you are ready to take advantage of the lower home inventory levels and are ready to put your Spring Texas home on the market.

She is THE best agent we have ever had in our past moves, and I have similar feedback from my colleagues whom she helped moving to Houston this summer.
We really were impressed by her knowledge about the Houston housing market and related policy, and she was always there to answer the questions we had. She was very quick to find out what we really wanted, and walked with us home by home very patiently till we found the one we like. She spent many hours with us in the design center, making suggestions from carpet colors to light fixtures. Since we moved from other states and were not in town when the house was being built, she walked through the house and sent us progress photos everyweek. Mostly impressively, she worked hard to deal with the builder on the progress and quality issues on our behalf, and in the final home walkthrough, we were amazed at the details she helped to capture and ensured the builder fix the punchlist item timely.
All in all, we are very happy to have Jill help us. We recommend JIll extremely highly, and would not hesitate to seek her help if we were in the market again. read less
