Here are few things to consider if you are moving to Collin County: population is about 900,000 with an unemployment rate under 4%.
Question is to buy or to rent?
The real estate market its very hot in Texas (not just from the weather!) with strong buyer demand and not enough available homes for sale. But, there are many homes available for rent all over Collin County.
For the past 2 years homes for sale inventory have remained very low, while the available homes for rent seems to increase year over year.
I have compiled a list with the homes on the market, available for sale and the homes available for rent as of 10/19/2016 in the major cities within Collin County.
There are 2 trends that can be seen here: increased sale prices and values for single family homes and an increased number of homes for rent.
A number of hedge funds and investment companies have purchased in the recent years homes for cash and turned around and rented those homes. I am aware about 3 different companies that have done it, and continue to buy more homes.
