Homes sell quickly in Houston’s hottest neighborhood near downtown: the Heights, an eclectic and exciting neighborhood immediately west of downtown, has experienced increasing land value and phenomenal home appreciation and development over the past two decades, with many homes often selling after being on the market for less than one week.
Known for its architectural distinction, tree-lined streets, family-friendly atmosphere, small-town charm, and proximity (only 4 miles) to Downtown Houston, the Heights area is in more demand than ever, and new construction and renovations designed to comply with the neighborhood's strictly enforced historic character and appearance are thriving in the Heights and intriguing homebuyers with a mix of styles, updated turn-of-the-century homes, newly constructed Victorians and Charleston style cottages.
The Houston Heights Association was formed over 40 years ago and has restored, protected, and preserved numerous projects in the area. It also hosts a variety of annual events, such as the Historic Heights Home and Garden Tour, Heights Fun Run, Heights Festival, Christmas in the Heights and the most anticipated annual “White Linen Night”—a festival featuring local artists and musicians located in the fun and unique 19th street historic business district. The Heights is rich with art galleries, boutiques, restaurants and various small businesses, many owned by local residents.
Known to be a close-knit community where the common “hello” doesn’t end there, residents—many, dog owners—embrace the lifestyle, strolling up and down the sidewalks discussing Heights news and genuinely looking out for each other to lend this charming community many advantages over other neighborhoods in Houston and make it a dream come true for buyers: the perfect place to call home.
