During the 1st Qtr of 2019, the median price of a home in Houston was $232,900 according to the Houston Association of Realtors.
That means that half of the homes sold during February in Houston were above $232,900 and half below that price.
Because most people buy homes using mortgages, take a look and see what the payment on that mortgage could be:
