Yes it is. Weather wise and real estate wise.
There are so many new jobs in Houston from companies moving in and the oil business going through the roof with fracking in the Eagle Ford Shale and others, that it is a sellers market. Lotsa people and not enough homes to sell.
I had read an article in the Houston Chronicle about homes going on the market and selling in DAYS for more then the asking price. I wondered if that were true.
This photo was taken of my granddaughter's belated birthday party where the girls were playing kickball, volleyball and other games in their cul de sac.
The house behind them went on the market, I think on a Thursday or Friday, and had a contract that weekend. Not only that, there were multiple offers.
The house with 3 bedrooms, 2 1/2 baths was on the market for a mere $110,000 and sold for more.
Although the front yard looks small, the back yard is huge. Big enough for a pool or whatever.
I have many memories attached to this house. It is where my former son-in-law and my grandson lived after my daughter Jennifer passed. It was a house of new beginnings as they have moved on and it was time to allow someone else to enjoy and love the house.
A funny memory came to me as I toured the house a couple of weeks ago. A funny cat that had been my daughter's lived there. Her name was Belly. Sheer curtains hung at a side window. Belly used to sit behind the sheer curtains thinking no one could see her. Black and big was Belly. It still makes me smile to think of her. Other sweet memories of my grandson doing a science experiment in the backyard and trying to replicate a volcano. He did!
Now as far as Houston being HOT weather wise. It was extremely pleasant almost the whole time I was there. It was the last week that the humidity rolled in and I knew it was time to head out for the mountains of Mexico with cool, cool temperatures.
It was 57 this morning and only got up to 81 yesterday. How sweet it is!
