From the Washington Post

 

The overall U.S. housing market has recovered from the crisis that plunged the country into recession. But a new analysis by The Washington Post shows that the recovery has been deeply uneven, creating winners and losers along lines of race, income and geography.

The Post analysis, based on data from Black Knight Financial Services spanning 2004 through 2015, shows how the nation’s housing recovery has exacerbated inequality, leaving behind many Americans of moderate means. It also helps explain why the economic recovery feels incomplete, especially in neighborhoods where the value of housing — often the biggest family asset — has recovered little, if at all.

A small number is making big news for Texas real estate. In the first quarter of 2016, the inventory of homes statewide hit an all-time low at 2.8 months.

However, there have been a few updates that are clear misses. The windows would look so much better without mullions, the wallpaper in the master bath has to go, and I’m praying that all the carpet in this home is just a fine layer of ugly over beautiful hardwood floors.
