The more than 64 inches of rain brought by Hurricane Harvey caused significant damage to nearly 43,000 apartments across Houston, putting them out of operation until repairs are completed.
This represents about 6 percent of the entire apartment market in the Houston metro area, which is the 4th largest apartment market in the U.S.
This is according to a real estate analytics company, RealPage Inc., which has surveyed apartment owners in the areas of Texas that were hit hardest by Harvey.1
