Updated: Nov 25, 2023

Development Trends in South Texas for 2024

Introduction to Real Estate Trends

As JRH Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc looks ahead to 2024, the real estate development landscape in Southern Texas is expected to be shaped by several key trends. From the housing market to economic conditions, and the rising popularity of prefabricated metal buildings, these factors will play a significant role in shaping the decisions of individual property owners. In this blog post, we will delve into these trends and explore how JRH Engineering & Environmental Services, Inc., a leader in civil, structural, and environmental engineering, can help property owners navigate these changes[1].

Housing Market Trends in South Texas

Home Values on the Rise

The housing market in Southern Texas is projected to see a rise in home values. For instance, home values in the 78582 area code, which includes parts of Southern Texas, are projected to increase by 12.3%[2]. This suggests that individual property owners might see an increase in the value of their properties, which could influence their decisions to develop or sell.

Challenges and Opportunities

However, the housing market is also expected to face some challenges. Existing home sales declined significantly in 2023, but these trends may pivot in 2024 if mortgage rates dip as anticipated[7]. This could potentially lead to an increase in housing sales, which might encourage more individual property owners to develop their properties.

Economic Conditions

Economic conditions, including interest rates and inflation, are also expected to impact the real estate market in 2024[4]. Higher capital costs and tightened lending could potentially make it more challenging for individual property owners to finance their development projects. However, opportunities could vary tremendously from market to market, suggesting that individual property owners in certain areas might still find it advantageous to develop their properties[4].

Prefabricated Metal Buildings

The revenue of prefabricated metal building and component manufacturing in Texas is projected to amount to approximately 1.165,7 million U.S. Dollars by 2024[3]. This indicates a growing demand for these types of buildings, which could influence the decisions of individual property owners in Southern Texas. Given their affordability and relatively quick construction times, prefabricated metal buildings could become a popular choice for individual property owners looking to develop their properties[4].
