April guess on stats - 04/30/08 12:17 PM
As a lot of you know the annual NFL college draft was last weekend. Prior to the draft almost all sports writers published a mock draft. In some cases they published several versions changing them on an almost daily basis. From the mock drafts I read and the actual draft results I saw, few if any of the writers were correct in their guesses. It will probably be the same with this blog today. I am going to "mock draft" the April single family residence sales numbers for Montgomery County, Texas about three weeks before they actually come out. I can't (1 comments)
Home prices - 04/28/08 02:29 PM

Suffice to say that they are indexes calculated (2 comments)
Sales 2007 vs 2006 - 04/28/08 02:27 PM
How did real estate sales in Montgomery County do in 2007 vs 2006? Not as bad as the rest of the country. For the purposes of this blog I will concentrate on single family residential unit sales. Yes, unit sales for this segment of the real estate industry were down in Montgomery County in 2007 vs 2006. County wide sales were down 4.15%. All four MLS areas comprising Montgomery were down. MLS area 39 was down the most, suffering a decline of 5.52%. MLS area 40 was down the least with a decline of only about one-third of one percent. Yet (0 comments)

Okay here we go. My first shot at blogging and providing you with good information about real estate through this media. Who knows maybe the great American novel will be next. I will be covering the Lake Conroe, Conroe and Montgomery County, Texas areas. For those of you who don't know those areas they are just north of Houston. I will be attempting to provide you with up-to-date information on what is going on in the real estate market in these areas.I will probably start with some basic information and education on the value of your home and what you might expect (3 comments)
