If your not taking twice as many listings as last year your income may fall 40% this year.

it’s simple math.  Listings inventory is UP 91% and sales will swoon 20%.  If our listing production does not keep pace with the market we will earn less.  Way less – GAH!   It’s simple math.

Join us Tuesday (see below for workshop details)

We’ll cover talking points and action steps to insure you win while others whine and wallow.

How are oil prices effecting the housing market in The Woodlands?

February sales surge upward overshadowing last February’s total by 6.8%.  Last February oil was over $100 a barrel.

Bottom line: Buyer activity is brisk and will accelerate into summer. Inventory/selection is great for buyers. Sellers face more competition and while prices are not falling, they are not climbing like they did in 2013 and 2014. The least expensive home for sale in The Woodlands is $150,000, the most expensive, $16,000,000.

2015 Under Contract Month to Month The Woodlands March

Listing Inventory expands creating more competition between sellers and more selection for buyers.

2015 Listing Inventory Month to Month The Woodlands March

For Sale inventory is up 76% from this time last year. Sellers with properties priced under $700,000 enjoy a seller’s market.  Seller’s above $700,00 face buyer’s market headwinds (see picture below).
