  1. The city of Houston has moved from BETA(+) to ALPHA(-) according to the Globalization and World Cities Research Network (GaWC). That's 6 spots higher to Number 35 in the World. ALPHA Class cities are defined as; cities that are highly integrated areas, filling advanced service needs. The index ranks cities’ current performance based on a number of metrics, including business activity, human capital, information exchange, political engagement and cultural experience. Houston has seen close to 700 different announcements in the region over the last 10 years of foreign firms saying they are going to invest in Houston. Things that bode well for the future of Houston, we are getting more interest from firms overseas investing or visiting or somehow doing business in Houston. Global Rankings for US Cities: ALPHA (++) = New York City ALPHA (+) = 0 ALPHA = Chicago, Los Angeles, Miami ALPHA (-) = San Francisco, Houston, Washington D.C. BETA (+) = Boston, Atlanta, Dallas BETA = Denver, Minneapolis, Philadelphia BETA (-) = Seattle https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Globalization_and_World_Cities_Research_Network
  2. Is there already a thread for this project? The article says it will be a $1 Billion mixed use project just east of BP and could include hotel, apartments, office and retail. http://www.houstonchronicle.com/business/real-estate/article/Exclusive-Big-real-estate-project-headed-for-5149772.php
  3. Hi, A family member is considering contracting with a property manager to lease out their current home (gated, 2 story Tudor, 1 acre lot etc) with easy access to the energy corridor. Suggestions on which companies to go to - or to avoid? Also, what are the tax implications (property tax, etc) since this is currently a principal residence? (The person will be travelling for a while without any other principal residence). Thanks in advance!
  4. So my sister and brother in-law are starting to look at buying their first house, likely in the Katy area. I am not a real estate agent, and admittedly haven't spent as much time looking at the housing market as others on here. I am just concerned because of the volatility in the Energy Corridor and the effects it has on the Katy submarket. Especially the ripple down effect from oil dipping below $30 a barrel and the local office vacancies. How will this effect the area? Am i wrong in being concerned about them looking at buying a house in Katy? Why or why wouldn't it be a good place to buy a first family home, especially in this market?

  9. Hey guys and gals, This is Cass. How is everyone doing? As you know, I work around zip 77077, is that called Westchase? I am looking to move into a nice, new or newer apartment community around this area or around I-10 and the Beltway. I was told there are a lot of new developments along Eldridge parkway? as well as along I-10 and the Beltway I do not mind paying a premium rent for a nice apartment, neighborhood, service and sane neighbors. A safe neighborhood is important. Features such as attached garages are welcome, or even a townhome! I have no pets and have a stable income, good credit, clean leasing history, etc. Any suggestions please? Thank you!! Cass
