Residents can easily access downtown Houston, Bush Intercontinental Airport, shopping, entertainment, and sports venues.

Spring Lakes Tax rate is 3.44%. Home Owner Association dues are $815. Annually

Numerous Gorgeous Lakes and Location, are two of many reasons, this neighborhood remains desirable. The neighborhood has seen a slight decline in Market Values when compared to 2010 year end average sales price of $63.30/SF. This decrease can be related to a number of foreclosures/short sales.that have recently washed out of the market, as well as competitive pricing of new construction builder pricing. I expect to see an increase in sales prices in the near future. For now, lower prices mean that it might be the best time to make that purchase.

Market activity for August 2011 in Spring Lakes shows that 4 Homes sold with an average sales price of $59.60/SF and structure size of 3215/SF. 3 Homes are currently pending and the sales information will be available once they close. Homes are selling at 97% LP/SP Overall time on the market is just under 2 months, with well priced properties moving more rapidly.

There are currently 23 homes for sale in Spring Lakes. If you’re interested in buying or selling a home in the neighborhood or the area in general, call Kimberly Whaley (832-576-4902) or email (kim@kimberlywhaley.com)

***If you are considering a new construction home, I highly recommend you take a take a Realtor with you that knows how to negotiate builder pricing, to represent your interest in the transaction. Statistically buyers who work with a Realtor when purchasing a new home get a better deal. Don’t forget that the Sales counselors work for the builders and their job is to sell you a home for highest price they can.
