The Groves

Trees. Natural beauty. Great Amenities. Sought after schools. There isn’t much more that can be asked of in a neighborhood and The Groves checks all of these off the list plus more. Located off of West Lake Houston with convenient access to both Beltway 8 and 59, as well as sitting a short 25 minutes from the George Bush International Airport, The Groves is quickly becoming one of the most sought after and awarded developments in the Greater Houston area. At the recent Greater Houston Builders Association (GHBA)’s 2016 Houston’s Best PRISM Awards, The Groves was awarded more awards than any other community in Houston, including The Developer of the Year Award. Crescent Communities, LLC, developed the community to be an oasis for homeowners filled with luxury set amidst the beauty of nature. Currently, The Groves offers homes from eight different builders with prices starting in the high 200s. Current builders include: David Weekly Homes, Village Builders, Perry Homes, Westin Homes, Darling Homes, Highland Homes, Trendmaker Homes and Taylor Morrison. All homes in the community are zoned to the highly desired Humble ISD, with two new schools to be located in The Groves within the next two years. A new elementary school will open in Fall 2017 with the middle school anticipated to open its doors in Fall 2018. Part of the lure of The Groves is its amenities and convenient location. Currently the community houses an incredible nature playground which incorporates wood recycled from trees cut down during community development. The playground, which is located at the community center, sits near the community’s splash pad, as well as the...

What a Home Buyer Wants

When someone is selling a home, it is easy to get sentimental about it and to take rejection rather personally when someone chooses not to buy.  However, to the potential home buyer, the house is merely a commodity.  They have not built memories in it yet.  They are not personally attached to it the way the seller is.  And they are not looking at the sellers’ decorating taste or the work put into building that deck or game room in the same way the seller is.  This can be difficult to remember, but to a buyer, only three main factors predict whether or not they decide to buy: price, condition, and location. Price.  Research needs to be done to find out whether the home is in a buyers’ or sellers’ market.  It is important for a seller to remember that the potential buyers have access to the current market information just as the sellers do.  While it may be tempting to ask for a higher price because of how much a seller personally values a home and what it means to him or her on an emotional level, this could result in an inability to sell.  Stay within the confines of the current market for that area, and try to keep emotion out of it. Condition.  Many condition issues are easy to fix and don’t cost much, if anything, to accomplish.  Make sure the yard is mowed and any landscaping looks tidy, the paint is clean and fresh-looking, the floors are clean and not outdated, the walls are not outdated in terms of color or wallpaper patterns, and that...
