Market Opportunity

The Houston property market over the last few years has posted record figures, specifically in the single-family home market and continues to do so. Single-family home average prices rose by 4.3% in the year to December 2016 with sales up 5.3% in the same period. Properties in the US$150,000 to US$250,000 price bracket saw the strongest growth in sales volume. Continued strong demand coupled with low number of new builds on the market are keeping inventory levels low, which at the end of 2016 stood at 3.3 months’ supply, considerably below the 6 months considered to be balanced.

Houston maintains an ever-growing market for rentals. Between 2006 and 2014, the number of rental households in the metropolitan area grew by 37%, the second highest in the US. Over a third of all rental households rent single family homes, the third most in the country. Demand for single-family homes grew by 5.7% year-on-year to January 2017 and townhouse/condominiums rose by 6%.

According to a press release by the Houston Association of Realtors in December 2016, the strong performance of the Houston property market is “the reflection of a truly diversified Houston economy that continues to benefit from hiring in other industries and a steady influx of consumers from markets across the country and around the world.”
