Houston - Home selling statistics

Hi,

I would like to understand which type of homes are most preferred in Houston - easier to sell in this market. ANy report that provides statistics around the number of homes sold with type, category, size, price in Houston across different areas will help. Thanks

Houston is hugely diverse, especially as concerns housing.  While there are many types of homes that sell within a reasonable period of time (even in this market), townhomes are in large supply, and not a partcicularly viable investment if you're purchasing with an eye toward selling (which you should).  Of course, location is the primary factor ...and it comes at a price.  But homes in great condition, and in those desirable areas, move pretty quickly ... our last such listing sold in 18 days, and for almost full asking price. 

All this being said, however, you do need to narrow your parameters a bit.  I'd be happy to work with you, as well as provide supporting statistical information   Are you looking to be inside the Loop?  Will you sacrifice a bit of convenience for a more moderately-priced home?  These factors, and others, play a significant role in the overall scheme of things.

Please feel free to contact me.  I look forward to hearing from you.

If you let me know what your goal is, I can send you numbers according to the comps from the mls. As far as preferred types... that's more difficult as this varies across the city. There are some features that make it easier to sell - master down, updated kitchen and master bath, "good" schools nearby, location, etc. Your question is very broad and not easily answered without more information. Can you explain what your question a little better?
