Interesting report. Found this from an article on CityLab: https://www.citylab.com/life/2019/06/apartments-for-rent-where-to-move-top-cities-list-map-data/591151/ Its not very in-depth reporting on a very thorough and data rich report. With that being said its an interesting starting point if one is interested in where people are going. Thats why I'll link the actual report along with this. Check out Houston: https://www.apartmentlist.com/rentonomics/apartment-list-renter-migration-report-2019q2/ Its also not surprising where people are going. Many Cities on the West Coast are dying and the East Coast is getting ridiculously expensive. Many are moving to places like Denver, Tampa, Atlanta, Dallas, and Houston.
Hi everyone. My wife & I have lived here in Houston for a little over six years, but are finally ditching apartment life in search of a home. The problem is, we've signed with a realtor we're not very happy with - we'd like to buy in the Shady Acres/Heights area but that is definitely not her expertise. I think we can get out of the contract, but trying a few other routes before going there. I found a few dated postings on this board about this area, but I just wanted to see what was the story. We were looking around 25th St west of Durham, and the area looked nice - but it's hard to really tell if it's safe, friendly and/or a growing area. A lot of this has to do with us just not having a knowledgable realtor, but any general suggestions or questions to ask? I know flood insurance is a great idea for the area. If anything, any restaurant/coffee shop recommendations? Neighborhoods to seek out/avoid? Heck, I will buy anyone on here a beer/latte if they want to meet up and make friends with a young couple looking to learn and embrace where we hope to spend the next 20+ years. We just feel like we're flying blind a bit as first-time homebuyers and want to make sure this is where we'd like to be. Thanks in advance for any replies/suggestions.
