Houston’s Real Estate Market & Where it’s headed 2013

Houston Real Estate Market & Lending Update

The credit for lending in Houston is freeing up, and Subprime loans are out the window. Last year local homes sales went up 29.1, boosting residential real estate lending for several local banks, not to mention mortgage refinance. Interest rates continue to be low, relatively steady home value appreciation. The healthy Job-creating economy, will continue to bring more demand.

Here is the problem for Houston Buyers, lowest inventory since year 2000. In December, single-family homes sales totaled 5,039, up 11.4 percent from December 2011. Sales of all property types totaled 6,055, up 12.5 percent from a year ago.

The average price and median price for single-family homes both reached their highest levels ever in Houston. The average price increased 11.3 percent over last year to 243,797, while the median priced was up 7.8 percent to 172,500.

The total dollar volume for all properties sold last month jumped 25.9 percent year over year to more than $1.43 billion, and HAR noted homes priced from $500,000 through the millions experienced the biggest increase in sales.

Additionally, the only price category to experience a decrease in sales was the portion of homes below, which decreased 17.7 percent from December 2011, and sales of foreclosed properties decreased 24 percent. Foreclosures made up 14.2 percent of reported sales, half the share they comprised at the beginning of last year.

Forward-looking indicators continued to improve, as well. Total pending sales at the end of December were up 6.2 percent year over year, and active listings were down 20.3 percent from December 2011. Meanwhile, the inventory of single-family homes dropped to a level not seen since the previous century. It reached 3.7 months, down 36.2 percent from the same time a year earlier and the lowest level since December 1999. Nationally, the single family home inventory is at 4.8 months.

The upper-end market is exceptionally hot. In January, the sales of houses priced above $500,000 and into the million-plus bracket were up 52 percent over January of 2012, the association reported .

The Market is not expected to cool down anything soon. The sales pending at the end of January were up 13 percent over January of last year,  and spring selling season will be excellent. In short, Realtors are going to be running fast for a while.

HOUSTON HOME SALES BLOSSOM IN MARCH
Aggressive home buying shrinks inventory further while driving the median price to a record high
HOUSTON — (April 16, 2013) — It’s hard to tell that the spring home buying season has begun because real estate transactions throughout Greater Houston never slowed during the traditionally quieter winter months. The addition of nearly 119,000 jobs over the past 12 months and the resulting need for housing, combined with continued low interest rates, helped make March Houston’s 22nd consecutive month of positive home sales.
According to the latest monthly data prepared by the Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR), home sales jumped 17.0 percent compared to last March. Housing inventory, which had been at a 13-year low of 3.6 months during the first two months of the year, shrank slightly in March to 3.5 months.
The lower supply of homes and added demand sent prices higher. The median price of a single-family home—the figure at which half the homes sold for more and half for less—rose 6.5 percent to $172,000, an all-time record high for Houston. The average price rose 4.6 percent year-over-year to $236,195, the second highest level ever.
Contracts closed on 5,779 single-family homes. That is the largest one-month sales volume since August 2012. All housing segments experienced gains except for those priced under $80,000. Homes selling between $80,000 and $250,000 registered the greatest sales volume increase.

“REALTORS® continue to see multiple offers on single-family homes and condos throughout the Houston market, which suggests that our local economy is growing stronger by the day,” said HAR Chairman Danny Frank with Prudential Anderson Properties. “Governor Rick Perry recently stated that Texas is the fastest growing state in the country, and most of those people seem to be coming to the Greater Houston area because our job market is better than that of Dallas, Austin and San Antonio.”
In reporting the addition of 118,700 net jobs during the past year, the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics ranked Houston No. 1 for job growth among the 20 most populous U.S. cities. The 4.5 percent hiring increase returns Houston to its previous job peak of the fall of 2011.
Foreclosure property sales reported in the HAR Multiple Listing Service (MLS) declined 27.2 percent compared to March 2012. Foreclosures currently make up 12.3 percent of all property sales, down from 15.8 percent one month earlier. The median price of foreclosures climbed 5.8 percent to $86,000.

March sales of all property types in Houston totaled 7,006, a 19.4 percent increase over the same month last year and the largest one-month volume since last August. Total dollar volume for properties sold leapt 23.6 percent to $1.6 billion versus $1.3 billion a year earlier.
March Monthly Market Comparison
March brought positive results to Houston’s overall real estate market when all sales categories are compared to March 2012. On a year-over-year basis, total property sales, total dollar volume and average and median pricing all rose.
Month-end pending sales totaled 4,433. That is up 6.5 percent from last year and portends the likelihood of another month of positive sales when the April figures are tallied. Active listings, or the number of available properties, at the end of March declined 22.1 percent from March 2012 to 32,704.
Housing inventory in Houston held at 3.6 months in January and February, but slipped slightly in March to 3.5 months. That remains the lowest level recorded since 1999. Inventory first fell below a five-month supply in August 2012 and then dropped below a four-month supply last December. The inventory of single-family homes across the United States stands at 4.7 months, according to the latest report from the National Association of REALTORS® (NAR).

CATEGORIES MARCH 2012 MARCH 2013 CHANGE
Total property sales 5,866 7,006 19.4%
Total dollar volume $1,276,756,997 $1,578,481,653 23.6%
Total active listings 41,997 32,704 -22.1%
Total pending sales 4,162 4,433 6.5%
Single-family home sales 4,941 5,779 17.0%
Single-family average sales price $225,809 $236,195 4.6%
Single-family median sales price $161,500 $172,000 6.5%
Months inventory* 5.6 3.5 -37.7%
* Months inventory estimates the number of months it will take to deplete current active inventory based on the prior 12 months sales activity. This figure is representative of the single-family homes market.

Single-Family Homes Update
March sales of single-family homes in Houston totaled 5,779, up 17.0 percent from March 2012. That marks the 22nd straight monthly increase.

Broken out by housing segment, March sales performed as follows:
$1 – $79,999: decreased 17.1 percent
$80,000 – $149,999: increased 15.1 percent
$150,000 – $249,999: increased 23.1 percent
$250,000 – $499,999: increased 30.7 percent
$500,000 – $1 million and above: increased 20.5 percent

The median price of a single-family home rose 6.5 percent from last year to $172,000, the highest level ever recorded in Houston. At $236,195, the average sales price for single-family homes achieved the second highest ever, up 4.6 percent year-over-year.
HAR also breaks out the sales performance of existing single-family homes throughout the Houston market. In March 2013, existing home sales totaled 4,915, a 23.3 percent increase from the same month last year. The average sales price rose 4.9 percent year-over-year to $221,714 while the median sales price jumped 10.3 percent to $159,900.
Townhouse/Condominium Update
March sales of townhouses and condominiums rocketed 47.1 percent from one year earlier. A total of 550 units sold last month versus 374 properties in March 2012. The average price edged up 2.8 percent to $173,155 while the median price increased 3.0 percent to $139,000. Months inventory was 3.7 months compared to the 6.8 months level it held in March 2012.

Lease Property Update
Houston’s lease property market saw generally positive results in March. Rentals of single-family homes increased 7.8 percent compared to March 2012 and year-over-year townhouse/condominium rentals were flat. The average rent for single-family lease homes was $1,552 while it was $1,393 for townhouses/condominiums – representing increases of 4.3 percent and 5.0 percent respectively.

St. George Place| Lamar Terrace Galleria Houston, TX 77056

stgeorgeviewSt. George Place

St. George Place Est. 1989
St George Place, originally known as Lamar Terrace, is a peaceful enclave located in the shadow of the Galleria. This inner loop neighborhood is bordered to the north by West Alabama, to the south by Richmond Avenue, to the east by South Rice, and to the west by Chimney Rock.

In 1989, Robert Silvers bought and formed 107 lots out of portions of an older subdivision, Lamar Terrace, from the Federal Savings & Loan Insurance Corporation. Mr. Silvers tore down many of the original homes, and petitioned Houston’s city council to rebuild the neighborhood. With its new name, St George Place, and a plan, Mr. Silvers was awarded the city’s first tax-increment reinvestment zone (TIRZ) and Public Improvement District, making it possible to institute zoning in place of deed restrictions that had expired. Of all the TIRZs that have followed since in Houston and other Texas cities, St. George Place is often regarded as the most successful. In the years since St George Place was formed, the neighborhood has been transformed from a once blighted area of town into a premier Uptown-Galleria area residential neighborhood full of new home construction, beautiful streets, and a fun and active neighborhood civic association (the SGPCA). The SGPCA oversees and manages the community’s Security and Landscape Maintenance contracts and activities. Likewise, the SGPCA stays actively involved in issues and solutions that continue to ensure that St. George Place is an attractive, safe, friendly, and resident-focused neighborhood. It’s placement within the southwest corner of the Galleria Mall offers residents only a short walking distance to the most premier shopping area of Houston.

The area has also been transformed by the addition of new streets, lighting, and a new elementary school. Spectacular two story homes featuring designs from Houston’s best architects dominate the subdivision. The style of homes focuses on Mediterranean style, French Country Custom, Spanish, and occasionally a traditional home. Since its revival, only a smattering of original Lamar Terrace homes still stand and, when offered for sale, are sold for lot value.
Students living in St. George Place attend schools served by the Houston Independent School District.

Record Sales
The pace of Houston home sales has never been brisker, as a super-low supply of homes for sale is igniting bidding wars for houses in many neighborhoods. Sellers are getting offers from multiple buyers on the day their house goes up for sale. And home prices are going up fast.

The inventory of homes for sale is at its lowest point since 1999, according to the Houston Association of Realtors.

Historically, January is a slow month for Realtors. But not this January.

January property sales in Houston totaled 4,680, a 29 percent increase over January of last year, the Realtors Association Reported

The Texas Medical Center is the largest medical center in the world with one of the highest densities of clinical facilities for patient care, basic science, and translational research.[1] Located in Greater Houston, the center contains 50 medicine-related institutions, including 15 hospitals and two specialty institutions, three medical schools, four nursing schools, and schools of dentistry, public health, pharmacy, and other health-related practices.[2] All 50 institutions are not-for-profit. Exceeding one thousand acres in size, the center is larger than downtown Dallas.[3] Some member institutions are located outside of the city of Houston.[4][5] The center is where one of the first and largest air ambulance services was created and where one of the first successful inter-institutional transplant programs was developed. More heart surgeries are performed in the center than anywhere else in the world.[6]

The Texas Medical Center receives 160,000 daily visitors and over six million annual patient visits, including over 18,000 international patients. In 2010, the center employed over 93,500 people, including 20,000 physicians, scientists, researchers and other advanced degree professionals in the life sciences.[7]

The Houston Museum District consists of 19 museums within a 1.5 mile radius of the Mecom Fountain. The Houston Museum District Association is dedicated to collaborative efforts that maximize use of the artistic, scientific and educational resources.

The Houston Museum District is an association of museums, galleries, cultural centers and community organizations located in Houston, Texas, dedicated to promoting the arts, sciences, and cultural amenities of the area.
The Houston Museum District currently includes 19 museums that recorded a collective attendance of over 7 million in 2011. All of the museums offer hours with free admission, and 12 of the museums are free all the time.[1]
Bordered roughly by Rice University, the Neartown area and Texas Medical Center, the Museum District specifically refers to the area located within a 1.5-mile radius of the Mecom Fountain in Hermann Park. The Museum District is served by four stops on the METRORail, one specifically named for it and is easily accessible from US 59, State Highway 288 and Main Street.

The beginnings of the Museum District are found in 1977, when it became apparent that some action needed to be taken to provide easier access to the museums of the area. This call for community improvement evolved into the non-profit Montrose Project by the mid-80s but changed into the Museum District Development Association of Houston (MDDAH) shortly thereafter. Based on the works of this organization, the Museum District was formally recognized by the City of Houston in 1989. The founding organization was dissolved in 1994, but the Museum District is now under the auspices of the Houston Museum District Association, founded in 1997.
The Museum District attracts visitors, students and volunteers of all ages, backgrounds, and ethnicities to learn about and celebrate art, history, culture, and nature around the world.
