benefits of investing in Texas
The state of Texas offers outstanding real estate investing opportunities. There are many factors that play into this:
- Texas is landlord-friendly
- The state has a high demand for rental properties because of the state’s steady population growth
- Texas offers a thriving economy and job diversity that result in reliable rental income
- Housing prices are affordable
- The state of Texas does not charge personal income tax
Investing in rural land has become increasingly popular in the past few years and is considered a smart investment.
Location is important in every real estate investment. When thinking about rural properties, the location becomes especially important.
Brandon Bownds, a fifth-generation rancher and third-generation real estate broker, owns and operates Bownds Ranches in Utopia. “Texas is diverse—and beautiful,” Bownds said. “Decide where you want to be, whether it’s the limestone of the Hill Country, the brush lands of South Texas, the thickets of the Piney Woods, the mountains of West Texas or somewhere in between.”
Bownds also noted that, the closer rural land is to a metropolitan area, the smaller the available parcels are—and the higher the price.
Rental prices are soaring as well. Investing in a property to rent out on AirBnb or VRBO will provide a great return on investment rather quickly.
Many home builders took jobs in the past couple of years at low prices and now are unable to deliver the houses on time. Some builders are backed up 1-2 years on build times as a result of this. Customers of ours have run into this frustrating issue.
