Texas property is in high demand, as indicated by the Texas Quarterly Housing Report released on May first. This creates a paradox for individuals and families in the market to purchase a home. The report notes 65,265 homes sold during the first quarter of 2016, an increase of nearly 8% from the same timeframe in 2015. The median price for a home in the state has jumped over 5% in just a year’s time, making it tough for those who are currently looking to buy a house as they not only have less inventory to choose from, they will also pay more for less value. This can generate a real estate crisis, which was the exact scenario facing Texans when Marcus Hiles’ Dallas-based company, Western Rim Properties, was born. The Texas real estate market was disjointed and on the verge of disaster when Hiles had the vision to intervene with a two-fold mission: improve the local real estate markets in metro Houston and Dallas, and provide lavish rental homes at an affordable price for working class Texans. As a result, the Houston and Dallas areas were upgraded with top tier resort style communities and the entire Texas real estate market received a facelift.
