Houston, TX Commercial Real Estate Market Overview

Location Photo

Although the energy sector remains a prominent segment of Houston’s economy, the city’s business environment has diversified considerably throughout the years. Specifically, it has made room to now include a wide variety of enterprises operating in industries including healthcare, biomedical research, aerospace and information technology. In particular, commercial real estate in Houston is home to one of the largest U.S. clusters of Fortune 500 company headquarters, as well a one of the largest industrial sectors in the country, which accommodates everything from research to refining to manufacturing and more.

The nine-county Houston metropolitan statistical area covers roughly 9,400 square miles, which is larger than the states of New Hampshire, New Jersey, Connecticut, Delaware and Rhode Island combined. The region’s high economic diversity ensured a quick and impressive recovery following the nationwide recession of 2008-2009. This same diversity also conferred notable resilience to the regional job market when the city’s traditional energy sector was facing challenges. Likewise, commerce in the Houston MSA greatly benefits from its proximity to the Gulf of Mexico, as the Houston-Galveston Customs District regularly ranks among the busiest — both in tonnage and trade value — handling commodities and goods from nearly 100 trade categories.
