Every year the Houstonia Magazine posts an article about the top 10 hottest Houston areas, how have things changed in 2018?
Well, for starters, buying vs renting is addressed as well as a few new neighborhoods (some which you may not expect) were added into the mix.
Think Clear Lake and the Hobby Area. Sound crazy? Maybe not so much. Houston is a constantly changing city, and investment opportunities are also changing.
Let’s talk about East Downtown Houston, or EaDo. What used to be a solely industrial area is now booming with new businesses and town home complexes on every corner. A good investment? Probably. Mostly because price per square foot is relatively low compared to areas like the Heights and Montrose.
And lastly, what about the Heights? While the area remains slightly inflated in price, don’t expect home values to drop anytime soon. With the recent alcohol sales bill passing and HEB construction underway, young DINKS (double income no kids) continue to flock to the area. If you decide to take a quick drive down Shepherd or Yale you’ll notice the ever new shopping centers, eateries, and wine bars. Interested in moving? You had better prepare your bank account!
