Monthly News Letter

Hey there,
I just had to share a story with you this month – it’s about a young couple, a charming house, and a little backyard that sparked a big dream.
You know how it goes in our neck of the woods – the Monahans and Permian Basin real estate market can be as unpredictable as our summer thunderstorms. So, when I started working with this couple, eager to find their new home, I knew we were in for quite the ride. They were looking for a place to grow their family, but let me tell you, the market wasn’t making it easy! Every time we checked out a house, it felt like a mini adventure, complete with its ups and downs. And then, it happened. We found this one home – nothing too flashy, but oh-so-perfect for them. The moment we walked in, their faces lit up like kids on Christmas morning. But the real magic was in the backyard. It was a bit rough around the edges, but they new that they could make it work. It was still a great size yard for the kids to be able to play! It’s moments like these, seeing that spark of future happiness, that remind me why I love doing what I do. It’s not just about houses and contracts; it’s about dreams, hopes, and a whole lot of patience and persistence. So here’s my two cents for you, whether you’re a seasoned homeowner or just starting out: stay hopeful, be ready to jump when the right opportunity comes, and always keep an eye out for that ‘special something’ in a home. It might just be a little backyard waiting for your touch. As your real estate buddy, I’m here to help you navigate this crazy market. Let’s find you a place where you can plant your dreams and watch them grow. After all, it’s these personal touches that make a house a home.

💰 What’s the market like in Monahans right now?

The Monahans housing market is leaning towards being a seller’s market. This is indicated by factors such as homes fetching close to their list prices, properties receiving multiple offers, and a relatively quick average days to pending (around 14 days). These factors demonstrate strong demand and competition for homes, which typically benefit sellers. However, it’s important to note that there are still opportunities for buyers, as evidenced by a percentage of sales occurring below list price.
