A report from Roofstock.com, an online marketplace for housing investments, found that in Houston, single-family rental investors are seeing average annual returns of 12.8 percent, just below the national average. 

These rental investments are surpassing returns on stocks and bonds; bonds saw an average 3 percent annual yield. Roofstock CEO and co-founder Gary Beasley said in an announcement that single-family rentals have, "historically been considerably less volatile than stocks and bonds and generates consistent monthly income," The Houston Chronicle reports.
