Welcome to Greater Houston, one of the fastest growing regions in the country!
As you drive around and start to familiarize yourself with the area, you are likely to notice license plates from different states, as the addition of more than 86,000 jobs in 2013 has drawn people here from all across the U.S.
Houston is one of the most vibrant and culturally diverse cities in America, with a low cost of living, world-renowned Texas Medical Center, dining that pleases every palette, and countless arts, entertainment, sports and recreation venues.
While we’re delighted that the nation as a whole has seen a dramatic improvement in the housing market, we’re especially proud that the Houston area has just experienced one of its best years on record. And home construction and home buying are poised to maintain a healthy pace in 2014. Our area offers a wide selection of communities and properties to suit every lifestyle, whether you plan to rent or own.
Each day, the 27,000 members of the Houston Association of REALTORS® (HAR) help make American Dream come true for individuals and families. HAR is the nation’s second largest local REALTOR® organization and our members understand that a home is one of the biggest and most significant investments you will ever make.
More than one million consumers begin searching for their dream home every month on HAR’s award-winning website, HAR.com. The site offers dozens of user-friendly tools to explore specific properties and their amenities as well as to find detailed information about neighborhoods, schools, businesses and much more.
Those same features are available through the free HAR.com app for iOS and Android platforms, making your property search convenient while on the go. You can download the app from the iTunes Store and Android Market. Just search for “HAR.com.” HAR and the City of Houston also recently introduced the free Houston Living app, which provides instant access to information about elected Houston city officials, city services and amenities, local events, neighborhood associations and more.
From HAR, welcome to Greater Houston. We hope you’ll take advantage of everything our incredible community has to offer.
