Earlier this week, Apartment List released the June rent report for Houston.

Rent growth in Houston still remains far below that of Texas overall, and the area continues to be one of Texas’ more affordable.

Sugar Land is still pricey, and Missouri City’s catching up

Sugar Land rents have decreased by 0.2 percent over the past year, and Missouri City rents have grown by 2.4 percent. Sugar Land rents may not be ahead of those in Missouri City for much longer!
