​HOUSTON – Houston continues to be one of the strongest retail markets in the U.S.

The city’s retail sector saw record amounts of development and absorption throughout 2016.

This comes as a surprise to many outside of the Houston metro whose perception is that the drop in oil prices has negatively impacted every aspect of the Houston market.

However, positive job growth (even in the face of energy industry layoffs), robust single-family homes sales, and years of pent-up demand have created the perfect storm for a strong Houston retail sector.

In particular, strength in Houston’s master-planned communities has been a driver of retail across the Houston MSA.
