Better than expected job numbers in the Houston area at the end of 2017 have the region poised for strong real estate growth, a report from local real estate valuation firm Deal Sikes & Associates found. Beating its initial estimates by 37 percent, the Houston region added 62,900 jobs in 2017, according to the Texas Workforce Commission. The strong economic activity should lead to single-family and multifamily home construction, the Deal Sikes & Associates report found. [Houston Chronicle]
