Realty Partners in Monterrey, Mexico

By |2017-03-13T15:54:52-05:00February 1st, 2016|International, Realty Partners|

 

At CENTURY 21 Realty Partners, we are always striving to be the most dynamic brokerage possible. Since our company’s inception, we have always emphasized the importance of international real estate business to the modern real estate brokerage. Our agents have closed millions of dollars worth of real estate both here and abroad. We have built relationships with buyers and sellers from all corners of the globe, Canada, China, France, Mexico, and the UK just to name a few. In particular, Mexico is a critical economic partner for Texas with billions of dollars in cross border business. Monterrey, Mexico located three hours south of Laredo is the industrial powerhouse of modern Mexico. Monterrey is an leader in automotive, household appliances, logistics, machinery, steel, concrete, and glass production among many others. After improvements in the security situation, years of pent up demand have transformed this city’s skyline. Everywhere new shopping centers, industrial parks, condos, and offices are popping up. With so much excitement, we decided to go down to Monterrey to see the growth for ourselves and to network and learn from our colleagues on the other side of the border. Our delegation consisted of four people: Patti Beaulier, the broker/owner of CENTURY 21 Realty Partners; Calvin Beaulier, head of international real estate; Ben Fuentez, recruiter and manager; and Rosa Wilhelm, a bilingual agent who has closed dozens of international transactions.

We were generously hosted by representatives from AMPI, whose Spanish acronym means the Association of Mexican Real Estate Professionals, the sister organization […]

2013 Record Year for Houston Area Home Sales

By |2017-03-13T15:54:53-05:00January 26th, 2014|News|

It is no secret that Houston’s economy just keeps pumping, throughout the region both transplants and locals are discovering that buying a home makes sense. Understandably, housing supply has been extremely tight throughout the year. All this growth has driven single-family home sales in the Houston area to the lowest recorded inventory levels. Ever. According to the latest Houston Association of Realtors monthly report, single-family home sales hit a record 73,232 closings in 2013, up an astounding 17.4% over 2012 (itself a very active year). Here’s a look at some statistical highlights from 2013:

  • The Houston Area recorded 86,000 new jobs created, plenty of those new workers seem to have bought houses.
  • The Houston Area median home price was $180,000 in 2013, up 9.4% over the previous year.
  • The Houston Area average home price was a record-setting $265,017, up 10.3% from the previous average of $240,326 a year ago.
  • Single-family home inventory hit a record low of 2.6 months, meaning that’s how long it would take for the Houston Area to sell every home listed given the current rate of sales. That’s less than the 3.7 months from 2012 and 5.8 months from 2011. A more “balanced” or “typical” market would usually hover around 6 months. This is absolutely a seller’s market.
  • Total volume of home sales jumped 30.2% to $20.89 billion dollars.
