While many from outside our neighborhood colloquially refer to all Greater Heights neighborhoods as Houston Heights, the actual boundaries of the neighborhood are based in the platting of Houston Heights as its own city by founders O.M. Carter and D.D. Cooley in the late 19th century. Of course, the city of Houston Heights became the neighborhood of Houston Heights after its annexation in 1918, but much of the area's historic character remains intact through its architecture, greenspace, urban forestry, and iconic esplanade.

In a nutshell:

  • This neighborhood is pretty darn walkable. This is thanks to the density of local businesses on the fringes of equally dense residential blocks, outlined by an amazing collection of greenways and Hike & Bike Trails.
  • You'll find most of these businesses along Heights Boulevard, Yale, White Oak, and 19th Street.
  • While most of the neighborhood still has the historic feel of yesteryear, only part of the neighborhood is actually designated as a "Historic District," which comes with a fairly strict set of building/remodeling guidelines and even some structures that cannot be easily torn down.

Why would I live here?

  • Most of us here in Houston Heights celebrate the "small town feel." Much of this comes directly from the efforts of the Houston Heights Association, the non-profit neighborhood association which holds community events each month and owns several of the parks and properties that are the heart of the neighborhood.
  • Between the historic restrictions, the former "dry area," and neighborhood character protection tools in place like opt-in deed restrictions and Special Minimum Lot Size blocks, the neighborhood has a strongly residential character considering it is in the city's dense urban core.
  • The sheer connectivity, not only via the trails, but also its location central to I-10, I-45, and 610 N—all providing quick access to Downtown, the Energy Corridor, and North Houston.

What should I know when buying here?

  • You'll want to be familiar with where the historic districts are and what sort of property restrictions they entail.
  • Know that home values vary greatly from block to block. For example, homes on the West side of Yale/Heights Boulevard tend to be lower than on the East Side.
  • The full, standard lot size for most of Houston Heights is 6,600 square feet. Anything greater than that is considered "oversized." (Dense urban core, remember.)

What should I know when selling here?

  • By and large, buyers still prefer being situated away from the busier streets of White Oak, Yale, Heights, 19th, 20th, and Studewood. Your proximity to these thoroughfares does affect your home value.
  • Data does suggest that lots and older homes within the historic district are valued less than those outside.
  • Prices per square foot vary enormously in our neighborhood based on a home's location, age, lot size, and many other factors.

How is the rental market?

  • Houston Heights has a pretty strong rental market, from the large, newer complexes on the far edges to the smaller multifamily buildings and single-family home rentals.
  • The quality of life for renters here is pretty enviable, with the amazing and walkable collection of local shopping and greenspace, plus the quick and easy access to some of Houston's strongest job centers.
