TheKaty Prairie Conservancy ( KPC) is hosting on Saturday March 29, 2014 a special program out in the prairie in the greater Katy area. Participants will get to try their hand at being a cowpoke. This is the third annual Ranch Roundup being at KPC’s Warren Ranch which is Harris County’s largest working cattle ranch. This program is part of KPC’s Unplugged Adventure series. The program starts at 10 AM and lasts until 12:30 PM.

 

Attendees will get the opportunity to see live cowboys round up cattle, try lassoing, tell and act out a Texas Tall tale, snap all kinds of cool photographs including with horses and many other fun activities. Groups, individuals, families and children are all welcome. Everyone will get to have cowboy type of food but all can feel free to bring their own lunch

 

The cost is $5 per person and will include a BBQ lunch. Very cheap price I might add for what fun attendees will encounter.

 

Space as always is very limited and registering right away is probably necessary.( Above pictures taken by and copyright by Bob Gilbert with all rights reserved)

 

Registration is required as well as signing proper release notices.

 

All folks who plan to attend should have Water, Outdoor Clothing, Long-sleeved Shirt and Insect Repellant.

Robert (Bob) Gilbert, Your Katy TX Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties)

The Houston Association of Realtors MLS system is indicating there are 63  homes available in Firethorne which have a median list price of $117.99 per square foot with 53 being brand new homes being sold by the builders. There maybe additional homes which have not yet been listed. Builders sometimes do not list available homes on MLS. The prices range from a low of $255,900 for a 4 bedroom home to $624,990  for a five  bedroom and 5 baths  home with 4,275 sq. ft. of space per the builder.  There are 17 homes today listed as being under contract with a median list price of approximately $ 102.00 per square foot.



Please see the chart below which gives everyone a snapshot of what is available right now.

Median Price of Homes Sold 2013   $101.74                    
                         
                         

 There are 3.2 months of supply available right now but these figures are fluid and change on a daily basis. There are 63 homes available to purchase which probably most with varying possibilities for a closing date. Firethorne has one of the largest number of inventory homes in the Katy area if not the largest.  New build home inventory in Firethorne is  fairly high right now as it appears the builders spent a significant amount of their resources gearing up for this spring’s buyers. As we can see, there are 20 homes priced at less than $350,000 which is very hard to find this many available new or resale homes at these price points anywhere in Katy TX. Prices in Firethorne like the rest of most of South Katy have gone up this past year and I think this trend will continue during 2014.

Firethorne Katy Small Town Neighborhood Feel
Robert (Bob) Gilbert, Your Katy TX Real Estate Expert (Berkshire Hathaway HomeServices Anderson Properties)

Firethorne Katy Small Town Neighborhood Feel

 

 

Firethorne Katy TX  is another master planned community in far western section of Katy where the entrance is off of FM 1463. Firethorne in many ways is similar to Churchill Farms, Cross Creek Ranch and Cardiff Ranch, as Firethorne has what some call a small town charm and feel about it and is located away from the daily hustle and bustle. One major advantage of course is that you can live in an area like Firethorne but at the same time be close to a huge US city being Houston. My best guess is Firethorne depending on where you start and stop is probably about 32-34 miles almost due west of downtown Houston. The new extension Highway 99 up to US 290 in Cypress adds another commuting advantage to living in Katy and off of FM 1463.  


 

Firethorne is built on approximately 1,400 acre with 150 areas devoted to parks and other recreational facilities. One of many key highlights of this neighborhood is a 12 acre lake which is surrounded by greenbelts and is located in the front of the main entrance; hike and bike trails; parks, and playgrounds for the kids; wildlife observation section which is a natural bird habitat. The Katy Rotary club holds its annual Katy Triathlon at Firethorne during the fall and probably will do the same in 2014.  

 

There are several new homes still being built in Firethorne. The applicable builders include Ashton Woods, Coventry, Highland Homes, M/I Homes, Perry Homes, Plantation and Ravenna. If you would like a quick summary discussing the various builders clickhere.


Currently there are approximately 55 homes listed in the HAR MLS system available in Firethorne with prices ranging from $255,900 to $624,990. I will post market report blog discussing Firethorne Homes for Sale and and will add the link here when it is posted.

 

Families love all the amenities available in Firethorne including resort-style multi-level swim center, sports fields, Lacrosse Field ( one of the few in the whole area) , neighborhood community center with a meeting room, fitness center which is fully equipped and a fairly new competitive swimming pool with six 25 yard length lap lanes.

 

Firethorne has homes zoned to both the Katy ISD and Lamar Consolidated School District. Katy ISD opened a brand new elementary school inside Firethorne during school year 2012-2013.
