What’s going on with the Spring Texas Real Estate Market? The market looks a lot like last year in terms of YTD sales. As YTD home sales are down only 4% compared to 2009. Home prices are remaining stable with minimal changes. Minor decreases in sales activity and stable home prices usually means good news to home sellers. But not this year as there are 32% more sellers wanting to sell their Spring Texas homes than last year. The increased competition will push the sellers who really want to sell to be realistic on terms and sales price.
We are seeing some builders get creative in their efforts to stimulate demand in hopes of moving their completed inventory homes by holding week-end only sales. While other builders try to stimulate demand by offering huge BTSAs to Realtors.
If you are a buyer, it continues to be a good time to buy. As interest rates for 30-year loans are in the low to mid 4% range and are at 50 year lows. The increase in Spring Texas homes for sale gives buyers the upper hand in negotiating terms and sales price with sellers.

She was so attentive and knowledgeable through the whole process from deciding to list to closing day. Jill helped with a lot of ups and downs during the selling process, from giving recommendations of contractors to filling in at my house when I was traveling. I'm moving away from the Houston / Spring area, but if I were around, I have Jill help with purchasing too. Highly recommend Jill for buying / selling needs. read less
