As in most of Texas it is a great time to sell a house but a not so great time to buy one. Home inventory under $200,000 is very low. When new homes come on the market in this range and they are priced correctly they are selling quickly and usually with multiple offers. If you are in the market for a home in this range you and your buyers agent need to be constantly on the look out and be ready to move as soon as it comes on the market. If it has been on the market 3 days you are usually too late.
