A little history about Spring Branch

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I often get asked why Spring Branch did not form a village as did Spring Valley, Hilshire, Hedwig, Bunker Hill, Piney Point and Hunters Creek Villages.  This interesting article in Ultimate Memorial section of the Chronicle has the answer.  Click here for the full article.

I thought it was such a great article I wanted to keep the link for future reference.

Downsizing…..ideas around $800,000 (post #2)

Some people want a “lock and leave” and some people want a small grassy area for their dog.  Again, these homes have the master down.  Many townhomes have the master up but there are a few scattered around with the master down….we just have to look a little harder for those.

This updated ranch on Broken Arrow is available ($795,000) has a low maintenance backyard and high ceilings.  Click here for more photos and details.

 

 

This beautiful new construction by Stiffel recently went under contract.  Listed at $820,000. Creekside Villas is a beautiful pocket in Spring Valley just behind Home Depot.  Click here for more photos and details.

Significant price appreciation over last year in Memorial, Memorial Villages, Spring Valley and Wilchester

The numbers are out for the first half of 2012 and the Memorial market has been WOW this spring.  Overall price increases over last year are:

Memorial                  +7%     (city of Houston)

Memorial Villages  +9%   (Bunker Hill, Hedwig, Hunters Creek and Piney Point)

Spring Valley           +14%

Wilchester                +14%

 

Inventory has been and remains low.

However Tanglewood saw a 10% price decrease for the first half over last year, a result of more inventory available in the upper end homes.
