Market Trends 2012 Update for Current Homes Available in Firethorne Katy Texas

What is happening in the Firethorne Real Estate Market?

The Real Estate market in South Katy Texas (MLS area 36) is basically defined by what occurs in the numerous Master Planned Communities which are scattered across the whole area. I have written several detail market reports about Firethorne in the past with the last on being a December 2011 Year to Date report which you can see right here. 

 

The Chart is showing current listings of homes for sale in Firethorne in Katy Texas by price point ranges during March, 2012.

As shown above there are 67 homes currently available in Firethorne with only 1 home or 1.5 % of the total being classified as Distressed (Foreclosure or Short Sale). The Distressed Homes are not having any significant impact on the market in Firethorne or for that matter a vast majority of the submarkets in Katy Texas. My report for Grand Lakes had the same observation. Since January 2012, there has been a increase in available homes by 17 homes or 34 %. The new home builders recently opened a section east of highway 1463 and the increase mainly reflects the builders putting several new spec homes on the market during early 2012 in advance of spring. At the same time there has been a decrease of 7 homes priced at less than $300 K as the inventory of reasonably priced homes in Firethorne has increased. Right now only 55.2 % of the available homes are priced at less than $300 K while during January that statistic was 60.0 %. The new homes added to the inventory in the higher priced homes amounted to 10 homes while at the lower less than $300 K price point only 7 homes were added.  

Firethorne similar to Grand Lakes is a great place to live with many amenities and conveniences close at hand. If you or your family would like to learn more about this wonderful family neighborhood contact me. Time to take action is right now as interest rates continue to hover around historical lows and builders in Firethorne have added to their spec inventories. I expect Firethorne to have a big selling season during the remainder of 2012.

Only one distressed home and otherwise, things are fairly stable.  That's a good sign.  I hope the additional inventory get bought up fast when the hot spring buying season rolls around.

Hi Bob.  You present an excellent report for those interested in the Firethorne Katy TX real estate market.     I believe there is not much time to stay on the fence, and those looking to make that purchase for the first time or buy up should be looking at doing it now.

Nice market report for Firethorne Bob, the lack of distressed properties on the market should be a good sign for future stabilization.
