houston-real-estate-investingIt’s Wednesday again and today we’re excited about the largest city in Texas (and the fourth largest city in the United States). Hipster loves Houston, and for good reason: this city is tops for job creation – and job creation means an active rental market and a stable tenant base. Forbes agrees: they went so far as to proclaim Houston the best city in the country in which to purchase a home. Home to NASA’s mission control center, Houston is full of some out-of-sight deals for the savvy investor.

The house we’re spotlighting here is right in Houston. It’s a great find for investors who want the epitome of turn-key with a great ROI: it’s a fully renovated single family home that not only comes with a 1 year home warranty BUT a 1 year rental guarantee and a tenant in place as a condition of closing. Check it out!
