houstonsingleHouston, Texas is a real estate investor’s dream. In 2013, it was voted the best city to buy a home by Forbes and ranked #1 for the healthiest real estate market by AOL Real Estate. Houston is all about jobs, jobs and more jobs. The city is considered the top place for job creation in the country, which means that people are moving there and rentals are needed.

    I would love to learn more about properties like this in Houston! Do you recommend any providers that also have properties in San Antonio?

      Hi Elliott, no not currently as the prices there aren’t many options for turnkeys in San Antonio and the sellers we’ve seen there so far didn’t impress us enough to want to work with him. Hopefully one day tho!
