The 200 Most Powerful People in Real Estate. Houston and HAR have strong representation in the Swanepoel Power 200 (SP200) list, released last week.
It's the time of year when housing statistics take a back seat to the resolve associated with a fresh calendar year. Diligent tracking of new listings and pending sales counts tends to give way to weight loss plans and personal financial planning. And you know what? That's great! Spending some time focusing on one’s self just may help make 2014 a banner year to match 2013. But if you want to take a quick glance, here are the latest statistics:
In the Houston region, for the week ending January 5:
• New Listings decreased 9.2% to 1,310
• Pending Sales increased 18.4% to 1,077
• Closed Sales increased 33.3% to 1,176
