The Woodlands Texas Real Estate Market Reports – June 2016

The Woodlands Texas Real Estate Market June 2016

Inventory for the first of July is 8% higher than a year ago at this time, with 727 homes on the market at this time. Sales for the month of June were off by 13% from last June. We sold 150 homes this June. With the Memorial Day weekend flooding, this could have affected the sales. YTD we have sold 939 homes, as compared to 1084 homes last year. This is off by 13%. Months of inventory has climbed slightly, to 5.7 months, a balanced market good for both buyers and sellers.

June was a bit disappointing for sales. We anticipate sales to be slow the first week of June, but, believe they were even slower than normal with the Memorial Day flooding. Most price ranges have a healthy number of month’s of inventory, and we are hoping the market this month, will be as hot as the weather!

The Woodlands Via Emilia Italian Restaurant

via emilia italian restauranat the woodlands tx


The Woodlands has several good Italian restaurants and my favorite is Via Emilia.  I used to go to Via Emilia when it was in the Champions area and learned it was owned by a family that was originally from Italy several generations ago that had been in the restaurant business for years. After living in Europe for a few years and moving back to The Woodlands, I was very happy to see they had moved here and offered an authentic experience here.  This is authentic northern Italian cooking in a fine dining atmosphere.  They are one of the few restaurants in the area that do a beautiful job of lamb shank.  It is slow cooked and seasoned beautifully and never gamey.  It is truly a beautiful piece of lamb.  Pasta’s here are perfect too!  Always cooked to perfection and served with any number of sauces that are spot on. The red snapper alla Griglia is a perfectly cooked fish served with linguini, olive oil, garlic, and spinach.  The smoked salmon appetizer is always my pick if they don’t have a special that tempts me more. Often, their specials are wonderful and different.  Service at Via Emilia is superb, the professional wait staff very knowledgeable on all menu items and specials.  They also have 350 wines and a sommelier that is very helpful and friendly to help navigate all that goodness. Bottles are half price on Wednesdays! While this is fine dining in a beautiful atmosphere, it is friendly and feels like a true neighborhood gem.

Visit Via Emilia for more information plus the menu and wine selection
