Terrible. Especially on the North/Northwest side of town.
Actually, Houston is a great market for Home Inspection. We have a number of really good inspectors out here. It’s a big market so I see more cooperation than squabbling between inspectors that you see in some small markets. There are plenty of clientele for both high and low end inspectors. Tons of new housing to inspect. Houston is the only place I have ever been where people consider a 10 year old house to be “older”.
Houston has a thriving Real Estate market, affordable housing, plenty of growth. Traffic is horrible and summertime heat is oppressive, but winters are mild. I came from NJ almost nine years ago and don’t ever plan to go back north.
Texas is also a freedom loving state. If you want to be responsible for your own decisions and not treated like a herd animal, this is a good place to be.
