Houston New Homes are Full Of Surprises

Sep 6, 2007
Why should you be looking to invest in Houston property? Well, if you drive through Houston at any time of year, you will see all of the Houston new homes that are quickly making this city one of the best new places to live in the United States. Some of the homes going up are simply stunning, and many of them are extremely large and well-situated for their price.

Even better news for buyers: the property prices in this area have seen a slight downturn over the last few months, particularly in the single-family home market. Homes priced between $80,000 and $140,000 have seen slightly decreased sales in recent months, largely attributed to financing problems experienced by first time home buyers and potential buyers with undesirable credit ratings.

Many of these individuals are being declined funding because they can no longer be approved for sub-prime mortgages, or are finding these mortgages to be too expensive. This leaves plenty of room for the savvy investor to pick up an excellent bargain on a good property investment.

As usual, complex developments offer some of the best property investments because all of the units are new. They have no cracks, no damage, no wear and tear and they are worth exactly what they are valued at on paper. Another benefit is that if you do not live in the property you have the services of the estate manager at your disposal. As far as Houston new homes go, some of the best Galveston County neighborhoods are seeing brand new developments with units selling for next to nothing! This area's property prices are in a slump because of low buyer confidence, but the homes are all situated in good areas and are definitely worth a look at those prices.

Most Houston new homes seem a little expensive in comparison with property prices in Galveston County, but buyers should not be discouraged. There is plenty of incentive for sellers in this market at the moment, as they can still get good prices for their homes. This means that finding your dream home in one of the best new places to live in the US is relatively easy. There is a large inventory of small and medium sized family homes going at the moment, and looking around carefully will yield some excellent buys.

One of the factors that makes Houston so popular is its relatively mild summers when compared with Dallas and Austin. It does get hot, don't worry about that, but you will find cooler weather on the whole here, with easier winters as well. A quick drive into Galveston county brings you to a stunning beach front where you can check out some of those great bargains in the best Galveston County neighborhoods.

Houston new homes are built to withstand some fairly challenging weather conditions, and so they are usually made of very high quality materials. Windows are double glazed for better insulation, and houses are designed to keep cool in summer, and warm in winter. As a result of this, homes in this city tend to last for years, and need far less maintenance than houses that are made with less expensive materials.

When compared to the rest of the country, Houston property prices are some of the lowest around. Prices near the city center will of course be higher than those in the suburbs, but you can even pick up a city apartment for far less than you might think. There are several new housing and condominium developments going up near the city, which are definitely worth a look to anyone thinking of buying to let.

The property market in Houston is full of surprises at the moment, but there are more good bargains to be found than usual. If you take your time and think carefully over every buy option, you will definitely find a home that will make an excellent place to live, as well as a profitable way of investing in property in Houston. New homes that are being built are always worth looking at, and you would do well to check out the listings of new developments on the go.
