How you’ll do more business with Houston Office Outlook & Insights: As in many areas, office tenants and landlords in Houston live in an uncertain market. With declining vacancy rates, slowing rental activity, challenges with the construction schedule and a possible recession looming, there is a lot to think about and discuss when it comes to the office market.
