Houston Multifamily Market
Houston is the 2nd largest MSA in Texas and is the 4th most populous metro in the nation. Houston maintains its place in the oil & gas industry representing nearly a third of the nation’s jobs in this sector. Texas continues to be an appealing location for employers including Hewlett Packard Enterprise which moved its headquarters to Spring, TX in North Houston in April 2022. Additionally, while Chevron maintains its headquarters in San Ramon, CA, it has shifted a significant number of its employees to Houston as it downsizes in California.

The city continues to have strong employment opportunities adding 176,300 jobs during the 12-month period from November 2021 to November 2022. Since peak unemployment in April 2020 (13.3%) the unemployment rate has steadily declined and is now close to pre-pandemic levels, reporting 4.0% unemployment in November 2022, compared to a national rate of 3.5%.
