 Oil & Gas Discoveries Create Urgent Demand for Rental Housing | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 22:54

Jobs are abundant, yet home prices are still deflated. We believe this will change as demand begins to outpace supply. On today's show, Kathy Fettke interviews a real estate expert from the area to learn where he's buying and how he's helping real estate investors take advantage of this once in a lifetime opportunity.

 Houston Real Estate Appreciates 15%! | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 25:56

Texas has long been know for great cash flow on rental homes. But price appreciation in the Lone Star state has hovered around 3-6% for decades... until this year.

Low inventory levels combined with this stunning job and population growth is creating a unique opportunity to get both cash flow and appreciation. On this show, Kathy interviews a successful investor and property manager in Houston to find out how he's still able to find great deals for real estate investors.
