6 Reasons To List Your Houston Home

Hot housing markets don't last forever, here are six reasons why now is a great time to sell a Houston home:

1. The combination of low inventory and high demand is great for sellers

Houston single-family home sales increased 11.4% year-over-year. This accounts for the Houston area's 19th consecutive monthly increase.

We're also seeing the re-emergence of backup contracts, bidding wars, and homes closing materially over the asking price.

2. Prices are rising

The average price of a Houston single-family home increased 11.3% last year (to $243,797), a historic high for Houston. Sales of Houston townhomes on the market increased 20.7% while the average price also rose at a comparable rate.

3. Interest rates are still at historic lows

Low-interest rates (around 3.5% now) are helping Houstonians buy more homes for their money. The principal and interest on a 30-year fixed mortgage for $300,000 are less than $1400 per month.

4. More people are coming to Houston

According to Forbes magazine, approximately 1,400 people PER DAY move to Houston. The tremendous amount of relocation buyers with big energy companies like Exxon, Chevron, Shell, and Halliburton in addition to current Houstonians are driving demand.

5. Additional homes should come on the market (increasing supply)

Builders are frantically buying lots and increasing supply. It's also likely more homeowners will list their homes for sale in the spring.

6. Limited risk to selling your home now

Given the limited inventory and strong buyer interest (as long as you don't dramatically overprice your home), you're in a great situation to test the market and sell your property.
