Are the Katy / Sugar Land areas a good investment for rental homes in the mid-200k price range?

I'm interested in buying a few rental homes in the Katy / Sugar Land areas. The homes would be around low to mid $200k price range, with at least 3 BR / 2 bath. I would put around 35% down and would like to cash flow $700 and rent it out for 1% of purchase price. I also want them to be zoned to good schools for appreciation value.

Is there a high rental demand in Katy and SL for homes with the above characteristics? Thanks for responding!

Kin,
It is important to pull rental Comparative Market Analysis-CMA to make the right decision to help answer your questions. I can give you my better judgment but having CMA will help you in the right direction.

Hi Kin,
In my experience homes in the Katy, Tx and Sugarland, Tx zip codes are always selling pretty steadily when listed correctly. My clients have loved the schools and the neighborhoods and the proximity to a major freeway. Sugarland, Tx was also voted one of the best cities to live in per Nerdwallet a few years back and one of the best places to retire per Money Magazine.

I'm always available and ha e my phone near by.
Give me a call if you have any further questions. If you click on my name and ratings you can see some previous reviews from my residential and investor clients. Text or call me anytime.

Thanks

Excellent question; the Sugar Land and Katy area are excellent areas for rental homes, particularly because of the school districts but also because all the areas have to offer in the way of community amenities. With interest rates below 4% and a buyers market it is also an excellent time to make this investment. I would love to work with you and help you accomplish your investment and income goals. Please contact me at 713.865.1103 any time.

Homes purchased at the right price and with limited repairs or improvements required could definitely cash flow from the start. These 2 areas have potential for rental investment property. I have experience as an investor and working with investors and can furnish you with info which would help you determine where to invest. Give me a call if you are interested in talking further. 281 650 8162.

I Kin,

Actually, the previous answers provided by my colleagues are not quite accurate. Your purchase price of Mid $200 is not realistic in Katy and Sugar Land and will not yield 1% ROI. Not with $700 cash flow goal.
You also have to factor in high property taxes (up to 4.2% in some areas) as well as HOA fees into your holding costs as well.
While I agree that those 2 areas are indeed sought after (my colleagues are correct about that) because of good schools, a more realistic purchase price is closer to $300K.
A house purchased for about 200K will rent for about 00-$1800 (depending on age and condition), which will yield less than 1% ROI. That is if you even find a suitable, move in ready home in that price range.
There are also other areas where you can get the 1% ROI.
Also, a good spread is important. You don’t want to put all your eggs in one basket, as that carries too much risk (even though it’s more convenient to have your all rental homes in close proximity to one another).

Thank you,

I work with rental investors in sugarland and homes purchased in low 200’s has rental income between 1600-1800. 1% rent as per the sales price can be challenging in few areas. For a rental investment schools, location, communities and year of construction are the important factors. You should go through a rental CMA and have a good knowledge about new developments in the area before investing in a particular property. Due to huge demographic changes in so many areas in sugarland and Katy there is change in the rental price as well. Yes sugarland and Katy are good choices for rental investments. Few new master planned communities are also building brand new homes which meets exactly your requirements and price. Do your homework well before you invest. Good luck

I will encourage you to buy in any of these two areas. And with the increase in the interest rate, I will say that the sooner the better. The interest rate has an impact on the amount of money you pay for your mortgage, therefore, it reduces your income from the rental property.
Especially in Katy, very close to the "Energy Corridor", which receives many expatriate executives, good candidates to rent a house, as they move in with the whole family. Attractive in the area is the school district, it could not be better, not only public schools but also international ones, like The Awty International School and Alianza Eco International School.
Not to forget that many local families, will be happy to rent a home as well in the areas.

Do not hesitate to call me for futher information.

It is difficult to find an updated home in the Katy, Sugar Land area in this price range. There is a good demand for these locations because as my colleagues have mentioned...i.e good school district. There are some new construction in the Katy area, that may be worth pursuing for less maintenance and easy rentals. I can be reached at 281 352 4712.

You just need to find the house & seller that meet the criteria. 90% of these deals are not on MLS. Get a mentor or join a mentoring group for help in locating deals that work for you. This price range builds appreciation not as much cash flow. Sugar Land requires registering rent house. Yes good areas to buy.

Absolutely. It's exactly why I live in the Sugarland area and selected a brokerage in Katy. Investors I've worked with on rentals have great success. You may also want to consider Sienna Plantation in Missouri City (sits right next to Sugarland). Sienna also feeds into great schools.
