Tyler Texas Investing

5 Replies

Cant speak for Tyler but we get a TON of guests at our STRs in Galveston from Tyler! Maybe a good chance to invest AND have a good renter base of locals based on your location!

I live in Gun Barrel City, half way between Dallas and Tyler. For medical reasons I drive to Tyler often, does that count? I've strongly considered Tyler for wholesale deals because I see several properties at a reasonable price. Haven't do so yet however. I would say Tyler is a good city to invest.

Hi Chelsea,

Tyler is a good area to invest in. Rental rates are stable, economy is good and with all the growth in the area I don't see that changing any time soon.

What kind of properties are you looking to invest in? As in most areas of the country, supply is limited right now...so finding a bargain right now might be a little tough.


@Angie Shires - what is the median house price (roughly) in Tyler?  I was looking as some VERY affordable homes in Wichita Falls last night, but now I'm wondering about the crime rate in different areas.  I love Tyler for the piney woods and would rather spend more time in that direction if it's possible to buy something for under $150k

@David Call our prices have started creeping up this year, but yes, you can still find a home for $150,000 (once our inventory increases)

Might not be the biggest home, or in the most desired area, but they are out there...especially if you shop the outskirts of Tyler.
