Early Look At November Home Sales In Houston – Sales Near November 2013, Little Change In Inventory

My early analysis of available data from The Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR) indicates that the number of single family homes sold in November will be near the number sold in November, 2013. There were 5,052 single family homes sold in November, 2013. The number of single family homes sold in Houston in November 2014 will be near that level, I believe the final result will be slightly higher than 2013.

The graphic above shows the number of homes sold inside Houston’s Loop 610 in 2014 compared to the same period last year. Overall sales inside the Loop are up 3.4%. Prices have increased substantially with many fewer homes now priced under $350,000. This has caused a significant drop in the number of homes sold under $350,000. In 2011, 52.5% of all homes sold inside Loop 610 were under $350,000. So far this year, homes priced under $350,000 account for only 28.8% of homes sold.
