What do you want in a house? Big and bright kitchen? Top-notch schools? Short commute to work? Diverse dining out options within walking distance? Home buyers have many important needs to meet and CQ Realty has the market insight and experience to help you find a home that excites you, in a neighborhood that caters to your lifestyle. Moreover, we are also looking out for your ROI and ease of exit (home sale) as we guide you through your home purchase.
As you may know, the Houston housing market is varied and disparate from one part of town to the next, and from one property type to the next. One cannot just paint the real estate market in Houston with a broad brush, as the market in a suburb such as Katy behaves differently from that of a central neighborhood such as Montrose. CQ Realty offers discerning buyers like you in-depth knowledge on the close-in neighborhoods central to Houston, including the pros and cons of each property type (bungalow, townhouse, condo, new construction, etc.) at different price points, most popular home features, school ratings (public and private), flood zones, most desirable streets within each neighborhood, construction quality, renovation potential, investment potential, and exit strategy. We specialize “inner loop” neighborhoods and ones close to the 610 loop (e.g., The Heights, Montrose, River Oaks, Garden Oaks, Oak Forest, Afton Oaks, Upper Kirby, West University, Spring Valley, Memorial, Museum District, Medical Center, Independence Heights, Brooke Smith, Sunset Heights, Timbergrove, Lazybrook, Rice Military, Art District, Midtown, Near Northside, Lindale Park). For assistance with the suburbs of Houston, we have partner realty firms to which to refer you for expert guidance in those markets.
“In Houston’s competitive market, we were expecting a stressful home-buying experience, but we were able to purchase a beautiful home Cindy found for us on our first day of searching. Cindy was attentive to our preferences when we first contacted her, and we had a clear vision of the home we wanted — minimal carpet, garden-home style of build, in a community with trees. Finding the right home for our family was painless. Cindy negotiated the price of the home down below our budget, and Cindy was accessible throughout the process of buying the home. We always knew we were in good hands.” – Ashley S.
