Top 50 New Build-to-Rent Communities in Houston

Welcome to the future of urban living in Houston! The emerging trend of build-to-rent (BTR) communities is reshaping the rental market, offering the perfect solution for those seeking the comforts of a single-family home without the commitment of ownership.

Over the past few years, we've seen a significant surge in the development of these purpose-built rental communities. With over 3,000 units completed in 2022 and another 3,000 in 2023, Houston is at the forefront of this innovative housing solution. These communities combine the flexibility of renting with the stability and amenities typically found in high-end residential developments.

Let's start with the new communities built in 2022/2023.
