VE Market Update
First and foremost, please join us at our Open House at 702 Piedmont this Saturday, June 26 from 1 - 3 PM.
Stop by to say hello and tour this beautiful 5100 square-foot home on a gorgeous ½-acre lot with a stunning view across Lake Venice. The home will go active on MLS on Thursday, and we are expecting a great turn out for the open house! We would love for you to stop by, whether you are considering a move within VE or whether you bring friends wanting to become a part of our great neighborhood. We always welcome neighbors to our open houses, as you are our best source of referrals for future clients!
We have been busy this year! Here is a recap of activity and sales in VE: Six homes/lots have sold and closed thus far in 2021. We have sold five of the six – representing either buyer, seller, or both. Two homes are pending sale, making 702 Piedmont the only available property. (To boot, this 12-year-old gem with an exceptional floor plan and open lake view is a rare find!)
Please call us if you are considering selling. We may have just the right “buyer-in-waiting” for your home or lot.
We were sorry to see our dear neighbor and longtime board member, Sue Frewin, move away; however, we are so happy for Sue as she is now settled near her son and other family members. We are also thrilled to have Melanie and Adam Cox as our newest neighbors in VE! Kelly met Melanie and Adam several years ago, and when Sue asked us to market her lovely home on Salerno, Kelly knew the home would be a good fit for their family! See the note below from Melanie and be sure to say hello when you spot their family on the street or on the lake!
We are so excited to be in Venetian Estates! We are the Cox family: Adam, Melanie, Cora (9years old), and Duncan (8 years old). We have three dogs, two Cavaliers, and one Beagle. My husband Adam works in the energy industry and I work in technology for Wells Fargo. Our kids attend Logos Prep and will be in 4th and 3rd grade this August. I grew up in Missouri City and have always loved VE. We’ve looked at several houses over the past few years and are so happy to have finally found a home here. We are members at Sugar Creek Country Club and play tennis and golf. After living in Sienna we are so excited about being in a small close knit neighborhood!
In addition to this sweet family, we have several other new families that we have been delighted to welcome to the neighborhood over the past several months! We have already begun preparing a new-neighbor special-edition newsletter. Look out for it soon!
Market Update from HAR
We have been working at a record pace. You may have noticed this, with all our transactions in VE—a.k.a., our favorite place to work! However, we are also busy with sales in neighborhoods including Lake Pointe, Riverstone, the Hill, Sugar Mill, and inner-loop neighborhood favorites of West U and Afton Oaks. Read excerpts from a recent HAR market update for a better understanding of just how hot Houston has been (even before June weather hit!):
Houston area home sales set new records in May…. What resulted was a nearly 50 percent jump in sales volume compared to the same month last year. Limited supply, strong buyer demand and increased construction costs all contributed to record high home prices.
Homes priced from $750,000 and above led the way in May sales volume, shattering all previous measurements with a whopping 291.0 percent year-over-year increase.
