  • Houston homeowners are "generally satisfied" with local price appreciation and the market in general,  but the city did not rank as locale to own in.
  • City's inventory is growing at a time when perception regarding its economy is high.
  • Market did not rank well when it came to climate, healthiness, safety, commute and education.

Houston was recently ranked as the 40th best place to own a home, a surprising placement considering homeowners’ perceptions of the city’s economics and real estate. A survey conducted by Porch and Redfin, ranked Houston tops in the nation in its “economics” metric and 15th out of 66 metros in the real estate metric.
