Although Midtown Houston 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 communities 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 Midtown Rents are High

Demand has led to high rents. This part of Houston continues to be one of the most sought after in the city. Expect to see new luxury complexes with rents increasing.

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  high price Midtown Houston apartments,  luxury town-homes, and lofts for lease. Small business owners simply cannot afford the uptick in rent. Landowners and selling out to developers who are building up these modern and lavish apartment complexes.

Private Midtown Property 

There are many Houston townhomes, but most are privately owned. 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. Houston Midtown rentals have maintenance staff on-site and repairs usually are completed much faster.

Houses certainly have an advantage over a standard apt. For one, you usually get square footage for your dollar and even a yard.
