The Corpus Christi Housing Market is overall still a good market.  The median home price is up 7% over this same time last year.  In November 2016 there was 57.21% of the homes sold priced at $199,999 or under.  There was 40.87% of the homes on the market sold for between $200,000-$499,999.  Plus 1.92% of the homes sold in November 2016 were priced over $500,000.  This is great news for homeowners thinking of selling in the new year.   The number of active listings on the market is up by 16.4% compared to this same time last year.  This is pretty typical in an election year and the timing of the year.  Average market time is still 67 days which is only up by 2 days from last year.  This is pretty good.  The number of active listings currently on the market is 1,611 and there were 229 ho...

One of the things I love the most about Corpus Christi Texas Beautiful sunsets!  I hope you enjoy these pictues of the sunset from last night.  I remember when I moved here back in 2001.  One of the reasons why I moved was because of the beautiful sunsets.  I felt as though God had called me to this area.  When we came down to explore, we were crossing the bridge in this photograph, and I saw the most amazing sunset.  God's handiwork is so prevalent here.  I hope you enjoy this as much as I did.       I took these photos while driving home from Padre Island Baptist Church's Wednesday Night Fellowship supper last night and that's when I saw the amazement in the skyline.  I traveled down through the neighborhood streets until I was able to finally come across the most amazing views!  Ther...

Just Sold 4/2/2 North Padre Island Home With a Pool in Corpus Christi This beautiful North Padre Island Home with a Pool had a contract on it within the first 4 days on the market.  The owners had pride in ownership and the home was immaculately kept.  It is a newer home and very sellable, however, there are not many North Padre Island Homes on the market that have a swimming pool already built in.  This is a big advantage for Sellers on North Padre Island that have homes with swimming pools.  Swimming Pools are in higher demand on the Island due to the rising cost of putting in a new pool.  These homes are sought after and sometimes these owners are able to get a better price, due to the fact the pool is already there. If you are looking to purchase a North Padre Island Home with a Poo...

It's Hot in Texas in the Summertime!  And locals enjoy the weather.   It is when school is out and we can go to the beach.  We can go fishing.  We can surf and parasail or spend some cool afternoons in the malls or movie theaters.  Corpus Christi and Padre Island offer a lot of amenities and things to do.    (The housing market in Corpus Christi and the Coastal Bend area is also HOT!  If you want to buy, call a professional like me.  You may be dealing with multiple offers and if not, you will need to move quickly to get the house you want.  Things are selling fast!  If you are a seller, call me also.  I need listings as I have buyers waiting for the perfect property to come on the market right now!  Call me today!)Our coastal atmosphere invites festivities and all the little towns arou...
