It is no secret that Investors love Houston. And for many good reasons – our little economic juggernaut is America’s #1 job creator, the energy hub of the U.S. and home to the largest medical center in the world. No wonder Houston has surpassed New York City as the most ethnically and racially diverse city in the U.S.! However, Houston is no longer “just” a good place to work, but has become a desirable place to live and raise a family. Houstonians and visitors alike get excited about the exceptional offering of fine cuisines from around the world, 50,000 + acres of parks and green space, renowned museums and a theater district with 9 performing arts organizations. Yet, a paycheck goes farther in Houston than in any other major metropolitan city in the U.S. Talk about having the best of both worlds.
However, to a newcomer, or even for a local, Houston is such a vast market, filled with countless different neighborhoods, each with its own personality. Some of these areas are undergoing rapid transitions, and you may find a dilapidated house (a “tear-down”) next to two brand-new towering town homes. Then, in other parts of town, you may not be able to spot much activity at all. Additionally, without city zoning ordinances and the lack of deed restrictions in some neighborhoods, the property values of homes located one street apart can vary by tens of thousands of dollars.
