Austin, for example, has experienced an almost eight percent increase in home values, with a rental yield reaching just above five percent. While in Houston, flooded properties have lead to affordability and nearly seven percent cap rates. Lubbock, Texas is one of the most affordable cities in Texas with moderate to low cap rates at nearly seven percent cap rates.

Business leaders in Texas have created full-blown campaigns to entice big, California corporations to ditch their West Coast headquarters for bigger opportunities in Texas. 

Toyota, McKesson, Jamba Juice, Pegasus Foods, and Apple are some of the big businesses that have moved to Texas in the past few years. 

In 2019, even more, businesses are expected to make the switch. For example, technology companies are sprouting across Austin, which is slowly transforming the famous music city into a tech hub. 

All of this action equates to promising real estate opportunities from office, to industrial, retail and residential real estate.
