A Sign Of Our Times in Highland Village, TX - 03/27/12 01:26 PM
Inventory is low. I have two clients under contract that need a house and we've scoured the streets. I've searched expired, cancelled and withdrawn listings with no luck. Here in Highland Village, it's turned into a seller's market. Price your home well and be in good shape, it's gone before it even hits the MLS. I had one recently where an agent lived two doors down and had two showings before the house was officially listed.

This was really brought on by seeing bags left all over the trails instead of being properly disposed.
