Houston, Texas Investment Properties


Why Invest in Houston Real Estate

As the 4th largest city in the U.S., Houston's population grew 12.4% between 2010 and 2015, the most among 381 metro areas. This population increase, combined with affordable rents, supported a rental population spike of 37% between 2006 and 2014. The share of renters in single-family homes, meanwhile, grew from 28% in 2006 to 34% in 2014. These are all good signs for investors, as Houston has a lower risk of vacancy.

One thriving renter base for investors consists of Houston's high concentration of college students. In fact, there are more than 315,000 students enrolled in over 100 local colleges. Even, despite low energy prices taking a toll on the overall Houston economy, its renter pool should remain stable until the local job market has a chance to rebound.

  • If Houston were an independent nation, it would rank as the world's 30th largest economy (houstontx.gov)
  • Home to the Texas Medical Center, the largest medical center in the world, with a local economic impact of $10 billion
  • Home to more than 5,000 energy related firms
  • 23 Fortune 500 companies
