Houston Property

By: Fruzsina Csery

Texas, the Lone Star State, is currently the third largest housing market in the United States. According to the latest surveys, this is partly due to the demand for housing among refugees that came from New Orleans, after the hurricane.

Houston market is still very strong. The number of home sales grew at 8.1% over January 2006. With lowered property taxes and hopefully fairer property taxes coming soon, Houston is poised for growth. The very attractive price of properties in Houston, which average about $140,000 for a house, have also encouraged investors and homebuyers to get in the market while prices are considered affordable.

Real Estate trends in Houston are governed by local factors as well as global recession, so Real Estate dealings prove to be a very unpredictable venture.

There are major differences between, commercial, residential and investment real estates. Commercial Real Estate includes income-producing property, such as office buildings, restaurants, shopping centers, hotels, industrial parks, warehouses, and factories. They are used for business purposes. The Houston commercial real estate market is enormous. Real Estate strength is somehow dependent on energy strength, and Houston is the nation's energy capital.

If you are looking for a home or a property you can invest in, one of the most important considerations you should look into is the location of the property. This is because the location of the property can play a major role in the price of the property and the returns that you would be able to get from your investment. As much as possible, you should try to buy a home or invest in properties that are located in areas where there is a healthy real estate profile, which means that the area enjoys a reputation of being a good place to live in or to base a business. Localities that are reputed as 'commercially profitable' are higher price commitments as compared to others located in developing areas.

Don't forget to pay attention to Real Estate statistics that provide a realistic database of deals that have taken place as well as provide information regarding multiple deals of a single property. If you can't understand difficult statistics, ask a realtor for help or turn to a Real Estate company.
