Market Update

Three homes in Venetian are now pending sale. There are eight available homes listed on the Houston area MLS. Please call me if you are considering purchasing in the neighborhood. Often owners will tell me they are considering selling, but not quite ready to actively market their property.

Homes presently available are priced from $335,000 to $864,000. The home located at 819 Piedmont is an incredibly beautiful home located on Estates Lake. See more photos on www.har.com/71033033. It will be open on Sunday, October 31st. More info on this later.

Baseball in Sugar Land

How will Venetian Estates be affected by the new baseball stadium in Sugar Land? I think it will only serve to increase our property values and better our quality of life. Ground breaking is scheduled to take place in March of 2011 and opening day for the independent team will take place on April 1, 2012! This will be much more than a baseball stadium. There will be entertainment for the entire family in and around the stadium. A water park is being proposed. Picnic areas will certainly be included. There will be camp-outs for kids and numerous other activities in the stadium itself. The kids will be able to walk on the grass! There will be a restaurant overlooking center field, a venue for parties, weddings etc. Luxury suites are available now for purchase. Season tickets will be available soon. More good news..the cost of a regular admission ticket will be less than the cost of a movie ticket. The whole idea put forth by "Opening Day Partners" is one of families and community. They have been very successful in other areas of the country providing quality entertainment in the form of baseball and other activities. We, in Venetian will actually be able to access the ball park 'the back way' through proposed street access on the Imperial Tract. However, studies have shown that neither Venetian Estates or any other neighborhood in close proximity will be negatively affected by traffic.

Real Estate Activity Increases in VE

During the past week inquiries and showings have increased in the neighborhood. Venetian Estates has never necessarily followed area real estate trends. Prospective buyers appreciate the uniqueness of each individual property. Homes within the neighborhood are located on three separate lakes and there are many beautiful "off water" properties as well. If you would like more information about the area and/or recent sales please give me a call at 281-242-2200 or email me at susan@fbre.net.

Market Update

Two homes in Venetian are now in "option pending" and one in "sale pending". That leaves eight homes listed as "available" on the MLS. There are still some excellent buys in the neighborhood and there are a couple of homes available for sale not presently being advertised. Please call me if you would like to know more about this incredible area in the heart of Sugar Land and only 20 minutes from the Houston Galleria.

The Venetian Estates Wine and Cheese party hosted by Marcie and Glenn McCutchen was a huge success! Approximately 100 neighbors attended and feasted on the incredible food. The menu included items such as Brie with Apples, Mozzarella Roasted Tomato and Procuitto Skewers, Bacon Wrapped Quail with Raspberry Chipotle glaze, Beef Wellington Bites, Red Velvet, Carrot and German Chocolate Cake Truffles

and much much more! (Marcie and Glenn are owners of Chef for You in Sugar Land.) Thanks to Marcie and Glenn for a wonderful evening of delicious food in their gorgeous newly remodeled home in Venetian!
