Oil slump can't bring Houston rental market down, report says

HomeUnion measures health of US economy and investment conditions in top metros
  • South and Midwestern cities concentrated the list of markets with the biggest opportunity for investment return.
  • Houston's economy is diverse enough to not be severely impacted by the fall of oil prices.
  • Rental prices and vacancy rates are expected to climb in Houston this year.

The multi-family and single-family rental markets are continuing to make headway throughout the nation, according to a report recently released by HomeUnion. While the end of 2015 was somewhat rocky for the U.S. economy, it has regained traction through the start of 2016 to prepare itself for what economists believe to be a promising year.
