Is Westin Homes signing more real estate contracts in Houston, Texas?

The Texas housing market is dominating the nation as the most important real estate market. Of all cities, Houston, Texas is on top. Major media outlets such as Forbes and CNN named the 2014 Texas housing market as one of the top areas to invest in this year. Westin Homes, a builder of residential homes, claims to be leader of best product and interior design in Houston, Texas. We would imagine that Westin Homes is experiencing growth in their business as well. With the major rise of people moving into the Houston area, builders like Westin Homes are expected to see a rise in sales. More contracts mean more closings. However, more construction may also mean more personal injury liability and real estate contract disputes.
