The Heights Homes For Sale
The Heights, Houston TX
The Heights is a name often used to refer to a collection of neighborhoods including the Houston Heights, Woodland Heights, Norhill and a few other surrounding communities. The Heights is in the inner-central West Houston area; its proximity to the jobs of downtown Houston, the shopping of the Galleria, the 610 loop, and the famous Houston Energy Corridor make it one of the most desired and eclectic communities in the metroplex.
The Heights’ re-invigoration is tied to the success of Houston, TX.
The Heights was founded in the 1890’s as a Houston street car community for those who did not want to live too close to downtown. The area was family friendly and was popular among downtown workers. It was annexed by Houston in 1919 and like most communities in this area, it has seen its ups and downs. The Heights started as a family suburb, became a business district, has been run down and seedy, and has of course been reborn and rejuvenated over the last two decades. As the Houston economy boomed, the Heights grew. Few communities are more sought after than The Heights.
The Heights’ hipness helps homes sell quickly!

The “hipness” of the area is complimented by the convenience to most Houston amenities. This powerful combination leads to a special real estate market. Homes in the Heights do not remain on the market long, and usually sell in less than a month.
