‘We’re going to make it’ for Texas real estate
With the price of homes and real estate skyrocketing, many are starting to consider leaving the state.
But for some, Texas real property is still their top priority.
“I think that’s the number one priority,” said David B. Kiel, a Texas realtor who owns three properties in Houston and one in Dallas.
“There are a lot of people that are trying to make their way out of Texas, but we’re still going to be here.
I think that is the number-one priority.”
The real estate market is also expected to remain relatively robust.
Kiel said the market is still in a good position to sell for a good price.
He said that is not the case for Texas homes.
“The price is still going up.
It’s just not as good as it was,” Kiel said.
“We are a very expensive state.”
A few factors could lead to a home selling faster than anticipated.
First, some buyers may decide to sell sooner, which is usually a sign that the home is on the market.
Second, many Texas buyers are trying for a quick move.
Some may be looking for a move to a new state or a city that is closer to their home, such as Austin.
