Low lot alert: Houston top ten communitiesLow lot alert: Houston top ten communitieshttps://www.recenter.tamu.edu/news/newstalk-texas/?Item=69832013-06-25T07:58:00Z2013-06-24T16:00:00Z

HOUSTON - Master-planned communities hold about 30 percent of the market share of new home construction, said David Jarvis, regional director of Houston-based Metrostudy.

However, many of the communities are short on lot supply and nearly sold out. In April 2013, lot supply dipped to 3.4 months, a 13-year low.

Old-school factors such as proximity to work and respectability of school districts still matter just as much, but the difference is that corporations are moving to livable centers that feature a high quality of life, said Bill Odle, managing principal in Houston at TBG Partners.

Three major companies have expansions underway in Fort Bend County — Fluor Corp., Texas Instruments Inc. and Nalco Co.
