THE WOODLANDS, TX - That existing home sales were down minus 0.8 percent in The Woodlands in February would normally indicate a dwindling market. However, the homes sales market in The Woodlands remains vibrant.

A total of 259 homes were sold in The Woodlands and South Montgomery County, compared to 261 in Feb. 2013. Despite a drop in inventory, The Woodlands area ranks No. 1 among home markets in Texas.

With 2,000 people moving into Harris and Montgomery counties each day, prospective buyers are turning to new homes. Construction of a new home takes approximately 6 to 8 months, she said.

Judging by the median prices of existing homes, it's still a sellers' market. According to information provided by the Houston Association of Realtors, median prices increased a minimum of 14.5 percent. The median price of a home in The Woodlands increased 19.7 percent ($257,250 vs. $215,000).
