Meyerland Houston Real Estate Guide

Minutes away from the Galleria and Medical Center, Meyerland is one of the Houston’s Best Neighborhoods in Real Estate Appreciation.

Nestled just outside Loop 610, Meyerland covers a 6,000 acre area south of Bellaire and west of Braeswood Place. The neighborhood is made up of several sections, each with its own set of deed restrictions. Meyerland real estate has remained popular due to its:

  • PROXIMITY TO EMPLOYMENT DISTRICTS: The 17th largest business district in the US, Houston’s The Galleria is around 3 miles north of Meyerland. The district is home to around 5 million square feet of retail space and over 23 million square feet of office space. In addition, Meyerland offers a good commute to the Medical Center.
  • PLENTY OF RETAIL NEARBY: The Meyerland Plaza is the neighborhood’s major retail center. Opened in the late 1950s, the retail center has several anchor stores, including JCPenney, Marshalls, Old Navy, Ross, Target, and Best Buy, among others. Dining and entertainment options are also available within Meyerland Plaza.
  • GREAT ACCESSIBILITY: Meyerland sits along major roads and freeways. Loop 610, Beechnut Street, Post Oak Road, and Chimney Rock Road carry residents to other key Houston districts, like the Texas Medical Center (the largest medical complex in the world). Braeswood Boulevard cuts through the neighborhood.
  • AWARD-WINNING SCHOOLS: Newsweek consistently ranks Bellaire High School among the best high schools in America. The school, an International Baccalaureate World School since 1980, offers several academic programs, including the IB Diploma Programme and Advanced Placement. Fine arts and music programs are also available, as well as a Foreign Languages magnet program (Latin, Arabic, Spanish, Russian, Chinese, Japanese, and many others).
  • REAL ESTATE APPRECIATION: Meyerland is among the best Houston neighborhoods in terms of real estate appreciation. The median sales price of homes in the neighborhood is at around $400,000. (See The Salary I Need To Buy A Home In Houston’s Best Neighborhoods)

Buying or selling a home in Meyerland can be tricky due to the neighborhood’s recent flooding (BE VERY CAREFUL ABOUT BUYING FLOODED HOMES or homes on flooded streets). In addition, buyers want to be careful about school zoning (all homes are zoned to Bellaire High, but elementary and middle schools may vary) or buying on main thoroughfares (which can hurt resale values). Deed restrictions can also be challenging.

Meyerland Houston History

Meyerland’s history is writ large upon the community’s name. Three generations of the Meyer family played integral roles in both the development of the neighborhood and its eventual growth.

In the 1890s, Joseph Meyer started buying land southwest of Houston. He accumulated 6,000 acres of former rice fields and the vast acreage was divided up among his sons upon his death. George Meyer decided to develop his 1,200 acres share of the estate, the area now known as Meyerland.

One of Houston’s first master-planned neighborhoods, Meyerland’s development was done in stages, with each section assigned a number and a set of deed restrictions.

The neighborhood’s history is also apparent in its homes, specifically their architectural style. Traditional and ranch-style homes are common throughout Meyerland, though a specific style from the 50s – one called Mid-Century Modern – gives the area a distinct flavor.

Many still seek out that specific look, and though some of Meyerland’s homes have been updated, owners tend to renovate in keeping with the style.

Godwin Park also serves as the venue for Meyerland’s Annual Afternoon in the Park Festival where residents can enjoy a day of family fun and good food with friends and neighbors.

Running through the center of the neighborhood, Brays Bayou is another popular spot. It offers trails for joggers, walkers, and bikers.

The Evelyn Rubenstein Jewish Community Center of Houston, fondly called the J by locals, offers Meyerland residents of all ages with a wide array of activities ranging from gymnastics, kids’ day camps, tennis, fitness, and arts and culture activities, among others. An annual Jewish Book and Arts Fair, an event that features films, concerts, a family day, and Q&A sessions with prominent and rising authors, is also held at the J.
