Houston was a small town in the 1940’s, but all that has changed. Houston has become a metropolis, and the real estate market is booming. In the 1940’s, it was unbearable hot, and there was no air conditioning. Due to the hot climate, it was not an easy place to live, and it was not a corporate headquarters destination. Now, it is a hug city with skyscrapers, suburbs and a magnet for corporate headquarters. Everyone lives, works and shops in air conditioning.
