That house near Memorial Park. When I was young and single I rode my bike many times through that neighborhood after riding the Ho Chi Minh to see the Beer Can House. 15 years ago that was a dodgy neighborhood. I am not so sure a koi pond means a very old house is worth $619k in a neighborhood that can easily transition back to its former state.
This looks like a great starter home at a reasonable price. Good location.
You know you’re in Houston when you here a 1947 house being described as “very old”.
And I can’t spell tonight
Lou, the dirt in Glen Cove is selling like hotcakes. That neighborhood is not going to go backward. People are paying more than $600k for other lots there. It’s right by the park and it’s close in…. ’nuff said. These neighborhoods will continue to climb in value.

Sounds like a localized bubble to me.
