  13. 13. Where is Houston going? <ul><li>We have seen steady double-digit increases in the number of leases completed through the MLS, which are typically single-family homes. </li></ul><ul><li>Those renters are likely people who wanted to purchase but have been caught by more stringent lending standards. </li></ul><ul><li>They are expected to enter the market in a year or more, as they have saved more for a down payment and have corrected credit problems. </li></ul><ul><li>Also, despite declining energy prices which took away some of the cushion we enjoyed, Houston is still cited in numerous reports as being one of the best real estate markets in the country and is expected to rebound earlier than most others. Houston added more than 42,000 jobs last year, through November, and it is still considered a stronger economy. </li></ul><ul><li>The Association of Foreign Investors in Real Estate recently ranked Houston as the 8 th best investment market in the world ! </li></ul><ul><li>Real estate will follow through on the economic conditions…as they improve, real estate will also. </li></ul>
