The Houston Heights (usually referred to as “The Heights”) may seem like a new trendy hot spot to most, but what most people don’t know is that The Heights is among the first neighborhoods developed in Houston.

Back in 1891 a millionaire by the name of Oscar Martin Carter and a group of investors bought up 1,756 acres of land for $500,000 and The Heights was founded. The huge attraction at the time, much like today, was the easy access to everything that city life has to offer while living outside the busy hustle and bustle.

The Heights really started booming in the 90’s thanks to the job market and young professionals moving in and renovating homes.

Average home price: $500,000
Biggest Appeal: Close to the city, trendy restaurants, house with a yard
