The Home Week Wrap.

By Jason Barnes | Updated on November 13, 2020

Question: Are houses selling…

This month, the greater Houston area single-family home sales have seen a 29.2% year-over-year increase in the past five months with 9,287 single-family homes sold. Median and average prices increased 11.1 and 12.4 respectively.1

Thoughts for Buyers: Is it safe to view homes in person…

I always encourage in-person home viewings (bring children too); however, with pandemic and understanding not everyone is comfortable with in-person home viewing, your real estate agent or broker can guide you to make this process easier and safer.

Technology is a close second to in person with great options; pick one: Video Chat Home Showings + FaceTime, WhatsApp, Zoom, Skype, Google Duo, Discord, and Facebook Messenger. Photos and Videos on Multiple Listing Service websites. 3-D House Tours.

Thoughts for Sellers: Clean, clean, clean and organized…

It all starts with you. We all know by now how important distancing, sanitizing, and face coverings are. Your agent can guide you on procedures like face covering, shoe removal or shoe booties, sanitizing surfaces and touch points, and hand washing (+20)2.

Big Picture:

Yes, homes are selling at a records pace in the greater Houston market.
