Summer Months Show Promise as Cy-Fair’s Real Estate Market Picks Up

Despite the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, this summer is a great time to buy and sell for a number of reasons, according to local real estate agents.

For instance, inventory is lower than usual, so homes are selling quickly, according to Jennifer Dodds, a Realtor with RE/MAX Preferred Homes who works in the Cypress and Copperfield areas.

“Homes are going under contract within as little as one day on market and typically with multiple offers over asking,” she said. “This is an amazing time for someone looking to sell, but on the flip side, it can be challenging for buyers.”

Realtors are seeing increased competition among buyers as interest rates are historically low, said Jim Mulholland, broker and owner of Cy-Fair Real Estate.

“We’ve actually had a few clients reach out to us who were thinking about refinancing and because interest rates are so low, instead [they are] opting to actually upgrade,” he said. “And those people that were holding off to see what was going on with the coronavirus pandemic are now getting more enticed because of the interest rates being so low.”  Read More...

County expects growth spurt to continue

Cypress booms as country’s other suburbs remain stagnant

By Marie Leonard  |  Volume 3, Issue 9  |  May 18–June 14, 2012

More than 75 percent of the growth in Harris County took place in unincorporated areas between 2000 and 2010, according to a 2011 Harris County population study. By 2018, the population in unincorporated areas is expected to rise to more than two million, which would surpass the city of Houston. “I think [the growth] is a good combination of the schools, the option of master-planned communities with lots of amenities and the value for what you’re purchasing here for a house,” said Jim Mulholland, owner of Mulholland Realty. “In places like Katy, The Woodlands and Sugar Land, home prices are a lot higher. Cypress gives you the best of those three worlds.”  Read More...
