Hey guys, I was referred to this website by some friends who said it was the go-to destination for Houston Real Estate information. After perusing through, I know I've found the right place and I'm actually overloaded with information. Long story short - I am trying to get information on development happening in the fourth ward. Here is a rough outline of the area I am interested in: https://imgur.com/a/oBzAu . More specifically I'm interested in the areas bounded roughly by Dallas to the north, Taft to the west, Gray to the south, and Buckner to the east. Can anyone provide any information as to what developments have happened in the area in the past couple years? Are there any developments planned? Anything to look out for? I'm familiar with a few apartment buildings having gone up along Dallas, but is there anything other than that? In general, how would you describe this area? Is it a dead zone? Is it up-and-coming? If you owned real estate here would you be enthusiastic about the future or looking to sell? I know there is a lot of vacant land and there have been some old shotgun homes that appear to be in disrepair. It also seems highly residential and not much in the way of recreation or retail or grocery stores. The reason I'm interested in this area is on behalf of my significant other. She owns a home here and has been renting it out. Due to moving for her job, she is also a long-distance landlord. Her rental really took a hit in the past year when it became vacant at the bottom of the oil and gas cycle. Her rent decreased by a ton and she is going to great expense to carry the property. We're trying to figure out what the long term potential for the area is. Almost everywhere I look in Houston it seems like real estate is developing and things are looking good, but this area seems to lag a bit. Plus the oil market seems to be stabilizing a bit and I know how huge that is for Texas in general, but Houston specifically. As an outsider, I would think being close to the best parts of midtown and having proximity to downtown would be great assets, but I understand real estate markets can be very local. What would you guys say is the 5-10 year potential for this neighborhood? Any other info you have to help me out? Any links to developments that have taken place or are in the works would be GREATLY appreciated. Thanks for reading and take care.
