HOUSTON HOME SALES SHOW NO LET-UP IN JULY

HOUSTON HOME SALES SHOW NO LET-UP IN JULY, DESPITE WHAT THE NUMBERS SAY Sales appear to be down because of a surge in delayed transactions that closed last July HOUSTON — (August 11, 2021) — By the numbers, Houston-area home sales were down this July compared to last.
