2024 Houston Real Estate Market Trends

Houston’s real estate market is ripe with investment opportunities as we look ahead to 2024. The city’s continued population growth, fueled by its diverse economy and affordable living costs, creates a strong demand for housing. This demand extends to both rental properties and homes for sale, presenting lucrative prospects for investors seeking profitable investments and potential appreciation.

Furthermore, the emergence of mixed-use developments and ongoing neighborhood revitalization efforts add to the city’s investment potential, promising vibrant communities and enhanced property values.

Warmer weather and changing market dynamics rejuvenated Houston’s housing market in April, following a slow start to the spring homebuying season. The Houston Association of Realtors (HAR) reported a 9.2 percent increase in single-family home sales, with 7,926 units sold compared to 7,256 in April 2023. Inventory levels also rose to pre-pandemic highs, with months supply climbing from 2.6 to 3.7, the highest since October 2019.

“Overall, total property sales increased by 8.7 percent, and total dollar volume jumped 13.8 percent to $4 billion. Active listings were up 32.3 percent from April 2023.”
