After the devastation Hurricane Harvey left the greater Houston area in on August 29th, 2017, we understand the reluctance that can accompany home buying in our area in 2018. While the situation was, and continues to be, heartbreaking for many people, Houstonians are resilient and moving forward as a community together! In fact, Houston’s housing market continued beating records in 2017, which ended up being the strongest year ever, according to a recent press release from the Houston Association of Realtors.
In the press release, HAR Chair Kenya Burrell-Van Wormer explains that “No one could ever have imagined 2017 turning out to be a record-setting year for the Houston real estate market, which had weathered the effects of the energy slump only to have Harvey strike such a devastating blow. We know that many are still working tirelessly to rebuild their lives after Harvey, but overall, this clearly illustrates the incredible resilience of the people and the economy of Houston, Texas. We also know that some neighborhoods are performing better than others, so it’s always advisable to consult a Realtor when thinking about buying or selling a home.”
