Vidor Kicking Off Marketing Campaign

The city of Vidor has started a marketing campaign to attract more residents. The effort is a part of the city's "Pride and Progress initiative.

"We had never done a media campaign and we just thought it would be a good way to get the message out," says David Slaughter, a Vidor city councilman. Slaughter says the city is offering tax abatements and other incentives for people who want to move to the city and build homes.

The goal of the campaign is to make residents of the Golden Triangle consider moving to Vidor instead of other areas. "We want to be able to compete with these guys for new citizens and new residents to move in," says Slaughter.

Council members say they're discussing more ways to advertise the city.

Last month, the Washington Post released an interactive map and series of articles illustrating uneven recovery in housing markets across America. The data of home values from Black Knight Financial Services spans from 2004-2015, offering a glimpse of American households before, during and after the recession.
 

Texas as a whole shows an increase in home values "better than most" of the United States. Meanwhile, home values in the eastern part of the country rose an "average" over a decade, and clusters near Chicago, the upper East Coast, Florida and California have fared "worse than most."
 

Though at unequal rates, the value of homes in Southeast Texas are all increasing. 
 

The zip code 77707 shows the smallest increase in home values at 18 percent, which is less than the average for the Beaumont-Port Arthur metro yet about in the middle of the national average. Home values in Beaumont and Port Arthur generally have risen the least. 
 

Areas in Hardin County, Mid-County and Orange County show bigger increases. 
 

Vidor and Kountze boast the biggest average increase in home values, with Vidor's 77662 zip code and Kountze's 77652 zip code each showing a 41 percent increase.
 

Home values in Lumberton, Groves, Nederland, Bridge City and parts of Orange have all risen at least 30 percent. 
 

Many Texas cities' populations have exploded, but the population in the Beaumont-Port Arthur metro hasn't increased. Still, real estate markets have shown steady progress and income increased the fifth most in the U.S. in 2015.
