Whispering Lakes Ranch Report-Home Sales Update through August of 2014
Posted In: League City News | Residential Posted by James Brockway on 09/18/2014

The lead story for Whispering Lakes Ranch in League City, Texas through August of 2014 is that sales prices per foot jumped 7.2% when compared to the same time frame in 2013.  That is a substantial increase in equity for existing homeowners and hopefully a nice predictor of things to come!

Other sales information as reported by the Houston Association of Realtors
There were 18 sales through August, 2014 ranging in price from $440,000 to $740,000 with a median of $532,000 ($119 per foot).  One third of those sales were of homes on Lake Landing and Pebble Brook but Mandy Lane got in the action with two sales.  Foreclosures have come to a screeching halt which has helped to elevate sale prices per foot.

2014’s sales through August are almost identical to 2013’s volume, with 2013 leading by 1 sale, at 19.  In 2013, the sales price range was fairly similar at $434,500 to $775,000 with a median of $555,000 or $111 per foot.

It is taking a little longer to achieve the higher price per foot though with the average days on market hovering around 60 days compared to last year’s 30 days or so.  I think waiting an extra 30 days to get an additional 7.2% is worth it though.  On a $500,000 house, that’s an extra $36,000.  Not bad!

League City’s City Council Renames Countryside Park
Posted In: League City News Posted by Pam Moore on 09/13/2014

City of League City News ~ “League City Council voted unanimously August 12, 2014 to rename Countryside Park to Lynn Gripon Park at Countryside.

Lynn Gripon was the first chairman of the League City Parks board. He was also instrumental in establishing both the League City Parks Board and the parks department. Mr. Gripon was chairman of the parks board when the first parkland was accepted by the City through a donation of 40 plus acres in the newly established Countryside North Subdivision, which later became Countryside Park. In 1980 when Lynn retired from the Parks Board, The Parks Board and Mayor and Council chose to name the walking trail through the Park for Lynn Gripon and so honored him at a Community gathering.

In 1978, Mr. Gripon was chairman of the first board of the League City Patrons of the Park Foundation Inc. A, 501(c)3, nonprofit organization for the securing of private donations of land and private funding for the paying of development costs for Parks and Recreation activities in League City. During 1979, While Lynn Gripon was chair of the League City Parks Board, a comprehensive, mandatory, parkland dedication ordinance was created. This ordinance is still in effect today providing funds derived from new development for parkland acquisition and development for League City.”

An excerpt from the official resolution: "Lynn Gripon was a lifetime advocate of natural beauty, land conservation and recreation activities within his community and was responsible for the donation of all of the oak trees west of State Highway 3 along FM 518, the trees at the Chester Davis Sportsplex, and at every school in League City during Arbor Day activities, and, along with Walter Hall, ensured that the original Butler Oaks throughout League City were preserved."
