Although the neighborhood has transformed into a “hot” spot full of restaurants, clubs, and boutiques, it was not always this way. Around the 1970’s it was a neighborhood that was shaped and occupied by Vietnamese Americans. Many popular streets such as Travis and Milam closely mirrored Saigon.

However, around 1995 the city of Houston implemented the (TIRZ). This led to the establishment of high-end apartments like Post Midtown Square and other town-home projects. And the decade between 1990 and 2000 the area saw a huge surge in population from just about 3,000 to over 5,300 residents.

Why Rents are High

Demand has led to high apartment rents. These high prices have also led to the decline of the number of Vietnamese businesses which used to dominate the area. Some might blame the recent construction of apartments, town-homes, and new establishments as the cause.

Today there are several new apartment communities. Properties charge some of the highest rents per square foot around the entire city. . The demand continues to surge as many would-be renters call this neighborhood home.

Where to find Cheaper Accommodations

If you are shocked by the high pricing and it’s a little out of your budget, look south for better deals. Check out the Medical Center area for cheaper rents. You can acquire rentals there for $700-$800. A good rule of thumb, older properties tend to charge less than their newer counterparts. But if your heart is set on Midtown, try the Ventana at Midtown; it offers some of the most competitive rates for rentals in the area. Cheap Midtown options are extremely difficult to procure.

Private Home Options

There are many townhomes for rent in Houston, but most are privately owned. You might get lucky and run into an owner who is trying to lease out their place. That might for good for those of you who desire more privacy and square footage. Remember that when you opt for a private rental, that the upfront fees are almost higher. In many cases, you will be required to put up both your first and last months rent, and possibly an additional security deposit.  Maintenance issues may require more patience on your part. Sometimes items are not repaired as quickly. A realtor can assist you if you looking for Midtown property for sale.
