Get Ready for a Climate Change

Houston and Phoenix are about as different as day and night. While it’s true that both locales are hot, that’s where the similarity ends. Phoenix is a desert with low humidity and very high summer temperature and little to no rain. In contrast, Houston extends to Galveston Bay and offers beaches and water sports. It’s humid with thunderstorms in the spring and summer along with hurricane threats in September and October.

Housing and Metro Areas

Houston home prices are stable with a median listing price of $290,000 and an affordable $124 per square foot. This compares with Phoenix median listing price of $270,000 and a higher per square foot cost of $162.

Metro Houston is home to more than 6.8 million residents compared to the Metro Phoenix population of just over 1.6 million residents.

Residents and visitors alike will enjoy the NASA Space Center, day trips to Galveston Beach, professional sports and good food. Houstonians love to eat out and can sample food from around the world. Try British, German and Polish foods. You’ll find every kind of Asian as well as Middle Eastern. Throw in some African and South American. And then finish it off with Tex-Mex.
