Houston Real Estate and Community Information

Houston Texas is the fourth largest city in the U.S. according to the 2010 Census with a population of 2.1 million people.  The greater Houston area, which includes adjoining communities, is composed of eight counties covering 8,778 square miles making it larger than the state of New Jersey.  The Houston real estate market is one of the largest and healthiest in the country.  The greater Houston Texas area has a population of 5.95 million making it the sixth largest metropolitan statistical area and has experienced a 26% growth in population since the 2000 Census.  The continual growth in the area will mean good things for the long-term increases in home values and the growth in demand in Houston real estate.

A recent report from Rice University labeled Houston as the most ethnically diverse major city in the country, with Pearland and Missouri City being the most diverse communities in the greater Houston area.  The Theater District is second only to New York City in the concentration of theater seats in one area.  The downtown Theater District is composed of a 17 block area and is served by eight major performing arts organizations.  The Museum District has over 19 museums within a 1.5 mile radius of Mecom Fountain.  The opportunities for arts and cultural entertainment are endless.

For sports fans, the area has four major league sports franchises and two minor league teams. Football fans are represented by the Texans in the NFL and play at Reliant Stadium.  Basketball fans can watch the Rockets at the Toyota Center.  The Astros are available to watch in Minute Maid Park.  Soccer fans can enjoy the Dynamo in the recently completed BBVA Compass Stadium.  The area is also the home of the Houston Live Stock Show and Rodeo, the world’s largest rodeo, which provides entertainment for more than 1.8 million people each year.

Houston Prime Realty is here to provide greater Houston real estate buyers and sellers information about the community and homes for sale.  Houston Prime Realty provides listing brokerage and buyer agent services to home sellers and buyers in the greater Houston area.   The Houston real estate market is currently rebounding from the stagnation resulting from the recent Great recession.  Houston real estate buyers can find all MLS listed homes for sale on the Houston Prime Realty website.  Home sellers can have their home featured our busy Featured Listings page.  Contact Houston Real Estate Agent, Kevan Pewitt and the Houston Prime Realty team with any questions on Houston real estate.
