Texas real estate

Texas is known for being big. It’s the second largest state, behind only Alaska, and the second most populous state. Texas is home to some of the nation’s fastest-growing cities and luckily there’s plenty of space for new residential and mixed-use developments to accommodate everyone. The thriving economy and job market are a huge draw for those looking to move to Texas, with many Fortune 500 companies, tech companies, the NASA Space Center, and a large oil industry. In addition to its abundant land, growth, and stable economy, Texas has no state income tax. All these factors make it a desirable location for property buyers, those that are looking to move or simply invest in real estate. We’ll look at cities within these areas that are popular among real estate investors, including Houston, San Antonio, Dallas, Austin, Fort Worth, Arlington, and Corpus Christi. 

We’ll cover some of the largest and latest real estate projects in each of these cities, helping you to discover upcoming real estate investment opportunities across Texas. For each project, the developer, project type, size information, number of bedrooms, project status, and google review (as available) are included.
