Popular real estate destinations for second homes and how to leverage the intel | Inman
28 Mar 2015

Everyone knows that warm-weather climates attract vacation homes, but not every broker is located in a sunny situation.


Each area of the United States has its own popular vacation destination, and knowing this can help you get a leg up on the competition and guide second-home purchasers in the right direction.


Michael Stuart's insight:

If the client is a Texan, chances are they are looking for something on the Gulf of Mexico. The "hotspots" on the Texas coast include Port Aransas and Crystal Beach.


Of all homes bought in the South, 41 percent are purchased with the intent of using them as a vacation home. 

Two more LNG projects (Billions) proposed for the Texas Gulf Coast
27 Mar 2015
More than two dozen projects nationwide are waiting on federal approval to export liquefied natural gas overseas. Two more projects in Texas are joining that group.

Michael Stuart's insight:

Sempra Energy, based in San Diego, has proposed converting an existing facility in Port Arthur.


Next Decade, based in The Woodlands, Texas, seeks to build a new $8 billion export plant in Brownsville.

Gulf Of Mexico Poised For Oil And Gas Production Growth
25 Mar 2015

The Gulf of Mexico (GOM) accounts for the majority of oil and gas production on the Outer Continental Shelf (OCS). On March 2, 2015, the Bureau of Ocean Energy Management (BOEM) announced that its proposed Gulf of Mexico (GOM) Lease Sale 246 would offer all available unleased areas in the Western GOM Planning Area for oil and gas activity.


Michael Stuart's insight:

Approximately 21.8 million acres located 9-250 miles offshore Texas in water depths ranging from 16 to more than 10, 975 feet. Renewed industry interest – evident from the recent upturn in GOM projects – and the DOI’s priority for GOM development in its proposed 2017-2022 program will help revive the region’s offshore oil and gas production. 


In addition to domestic offshore development, partnerships may begin at the U.S.-Mexico border. Mexico made constitutional amendments in December 2013 and enacted secondary legislation in August 2014 that opened oil and natural gas markets to foreign investments, including investments that are active in the GOM OCS.


Opening of Mexican waters could facilitate long-term expansion of U.S.-Mexico energy trade and provide opportunities for U.S. companies, while there is a possibility for a shift in investment focus from the U.S. OCS to Mexican waters.

What thrived during the Texas coast recession?
29 Jan 2015

This study is about the lessons learned from two “high-end real estate project developers” that thrived during the worse recession and storms to hit the Texas coast in history. A silver lining from the unfortunate times the region experienced from 2008 to 2012.

At the real estate peak in 2007, over a dozen high-end projects were under way on the Texas coast transforming the skyline and promising better lifestyles. Some of the projects completely failed, most will redeem their value sometime in the future, but only two thrived and are roaring out of the recession.

The report shows how it was a combination of negative factors that took the Texas coast market by storm, while Texas overall had only minor effects from the recession.
