Houston Home Prices Reach a Record High in June

Houston Home Prices Reach a Record High in June  – Home sales increase for the second time this year

HOUSTON — (July 19, 2011) — Houston home sales rose for the second time this year in June, with the average price reaching an all-time high and the median price achieving the highest level in nearly two years. The sales increase reflects the slowdown in home purchases that set in a year ago following expiration of the home buyer tax credit. The credit triggered a surge in home buying during the spring of 2010 that resulted in slower sales volume during the remainder of that year.

According to the latest monthly data compiled by the Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR), June sales of single-family homes edged up 0.6 percent versus one year earlier. That represents the first increase since January when sales volume rose 8.4 percent. The under-$80,000 segment of the market as well as homes priced from $250,000 and above experienced increased sales while the popular middle range, consisting of homes priced between $80,000 and $250,000, saw declines. Compared to June of 2009, a year with no unusual market factors such as Hurricane Ike in 2008 and the 2010 tax credit, single-family home sales were up 2.7 percent.

Drought brings water conservation to Cinco Southwest MUDs

Drought conditions in the area have forced some municipal utility districts in Cinco Ranch to implement water conservation measures.

“While some homeowners have been asked to comply with voluntary water conservation measures, other MUDs are under mandatory conservation measures, punishable for violations. Residents should take careful note of which MUD their property falls under, so as to avoid confusion.

Cinco Southwest districts are under mandatory restrictions; residents and business owners should have received a direct notice via mail from Severn Trent Services shortly after June 2. Properties in the Cinco Ranch master district #MUDs Nos. 1, 2, 3, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, 10, 12 and 14#, however, are only asked to voluntarily restrict water usage, as urged by public signs posted throughout the area.”
