Second Kayaking facility on Lake Woodlands to be built mid-to-late summer in Hughes Landing

New Outdoor Entertainment Options

Coming just a few days after we published the article on Kayaking Lake Woodlands, The Woodlands will be expanding their outdoor entertainment options to give you even more things to do.

Hughes Landing will be the site of a second kayak rental facility in The Woodlands, and is expected to be completed mid-to-late summer. The Riva Row Boat House, the first location, is located off Riva Row; just a stones throw from The Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavilion.

In addition to the new Hughes Landing location, the Riva Row Boat House is expanding their menu to include stand-up paddle boarding classes, 90-minute Sunday kayak excursions as well as kayak rentals with picnic lunches.

More Entertainment Options

New stand-up paddle-boarders will learn the basics of proper stance for balance to techniques for paddling and turning.

The 90-minute kayaking excursions will be led by a certified instructor and will cost $40 for a single kayak to $55 for a tandem. Can’t wait to get out there on an excursion? The first will kick-off this Sunday, April 26th at 10am.

The kayak and picnic lunch packages will cost $60, and will include a two hour tandem kayak along with the grub.

March Market Report

The Houston Association of Realtors recently released their monthly report on the real estate market in March. According to the report, “single family home sales rose 3.8% year-over-year in March, with the most activity taking place among homes priced between $250,000 and $500,000.” The luxury market (Homes greater than $500,000) experienced a 7% gain in March after a decline in home sales was observed in February.

Home prices reached a record high in March for Houston with a 6.5% increase from last year, topping out at $276,837. Further, days on market in March 2014 resided at 60 days, while March 2015 shed 7 days off that number coming in at 53.

Breaking it Down

Months of inventory is the estimated time it would take to deplete the current active housing inventory based on the last 12 months of sales. This figure gives us an idea at how quickly homes are moving in the marketplace.

In March 2015, the HAR MLS reported 2.8 months supply, which is significantly lower than the national average of 4.6 months of inventory. Record high home prices and a bustling spring market will help any sellers thinking of jumping into the “I need to sell” arena.

“If you are thinking about selling, now is a great time to have a discussion with your Realtor. Your swift decision making abilities could net you thousands of dollars now as opposed to waiting for sometime in the future.”

The Kink Team deals with properties of ALL shapes and sizes. We provide our services to folks looking to lease a home, sell undeveloped lots of land, buy a home for the family, or sell a multi-million dollar estate. No real estate need is ever too small.
