Houston one of nation’s hottest single-family markets

by James McClister


In a new ranking from online real estate marketplace Ten-X, Houston is named as one of the top 50 single-home markets in the country.

Basing its analysis on “current and forecasted housing fundamentals,” such as home price and sales growth, Ten-X found that markets vary wildly throughout the country.

“This quarter’s report is a strong reminder of how uneven the housing recovery has been, with strong performance by cities in the South, Southeast, West and Pacific Northwest, and much weaker trends in the Northeast and Midwest,” said Rick Sharga, executive vice president with Ten-X.

One of the strongest southern markets has been Houston, which Ten-X ranked the No. 42 single-family market nationwide.
