Howdy Houston folks!
I actually grew up in Houston but I'm an investor/agent here in Austin these days. I'm looking for a very "in the know" agent in Houston who can help me learn local regulations and buy legal, code/bylaw compliant STRs in the Central Houston area. I have this knowledge in Austin for these topics and would like to see what is available in H-Town.
STR's? You mean SFR?
STR = short term rental which tends to mean an SFR. These are for earning gross rents via Airbnb, Homeaway, etc.
You can do well with that in the right location such as downtown or near the hospital. In which case something attached might work better. I don't typically advise condo but your situation might be just right. There are some high rents there and usually year around. I do not have experience with that though.
