Tracking Down Top Homes For Sale In Houston

Jan 9, 2008
Whether you are looking to buy to live in Houston, or you want to invest in real estate that will show good long term capital appreciation there is something for every type of investor in this city. CNN Money recently rated Houston one of the best new places to live.

In America, the local property market has rewarded both prudent buyers and patient sellers alike by resisting the nearly nation-wide housing problems that are affecting markets across the country. With declines in property prices and sales much lower than the nation average, it makes sense to invest in one of the best new places to live.

In the US, if you are serious about real estate investing this year and you are not willing to take the risks that seem inherent in nearly every property market across the country, then you will definitely want to consider investing in some of the top homes for sale.

In Houston, as well as there being a large inventory of existing properties on the market, there are also a lot of new developments coming up all over town. Many of these are pre-selling exquisite family homes at incredibly low introductory prices.

The top homes are usually to be found in complexes like these, but there are a lot of bargains going out there. Property analysts do not recommend buying from a private seller in this area, as this can end up costing you a lot more than you should be paying in transfer fees and other duties. However, having a look at the listings of existing top homes for sale in Houston by neighborhood is a good way to find some beautiful new and existing homes that are fully detached and located in some highly desirable neighborhoods.

As for job opportunities in Houston, there is almost no profession that is not in significant demand at the moment. Salaries are high for most skilled professions, or those professions requiring a college degree. If you have a degree and you are transferred to a Houston company you can definitely look forward to owning one of the top homes for sale.

In Houston, there is a lot that people do not realize about the lower priced homes. Property prices for the low end might be particularly low, but most people do not notice the massive 20% property income that comes with these homes. Properties in the more desirable neighborhoods in Houston do not come with figures even half as high as this. So while the larger homes might be great places to live, buying one of the cheaper homes can be an extremely wise investment. If you want to buy to rent and you are not afraid of putting a few dollars into fixing a place up, you can find a lot of excellent bargains in Houston.

Over all the top homes are generally to be found in real estate development complexes that feature the latest in design concepts. However, there are a large number of restored Victorian and Civil War era homes that can be found in less than ideal condition.

With a little bit of elbow grease these properties can become either a stunning family home or a profitable bed and breakfast. Make sure you take a good look at the listing and keep checking back regularly to find some of the top homes. With the current property market situation in mind, buying in a city with such a resilient property market is a sound investment decision.
