The number of home sales increased in three out of seven Lake Houston-area ZIP codes in February compared to February 2020, which is due to the area’s low home inventory. This low inventory is driving home prices up, which is shown with median home prices increasing in all seven ZIP codes, according to Deborah Rose-Miller, an independent broker agent for her company, Rose Realty.
