Planning to buy a home? Here's a curated list of the best places to live in South / Southeast Houston based on their 5-year appreciation.

Top Areas to Live in  South / Southeast Houston

Neighborhoods in South / Southeast Houston generally fared well in the past few years. The oil price crash, Hurricane Harvey, and real estate booms are some of the events that made an impact on Houston real estate. Still, property prices in this area have been on the rise.

South / Southeast Houston is home to some of Houston's Best Suburbs such as Pearland and Clear Lake.

The suburbs have easy access to Texas Medical Center, Sugar Land Business Park, and Downtown Houston. Prominent employers in the region include oil, gas, and marine industries.

Homes in the South / Southeast tend to sit on sizable lots. Residents also have access to acres of green spaces with lots of outdoor recreation options. Top-ranked schools also made neighborhoods in the region in demand for the past five years.

Reviewing historical peaks and troughs in targeted locations helps buyers and sellers avoid mistakes. But South / Southeast Houston is a hyper-local real estate market. Contact Paige at PMartin@HoustonProperties.com for a custom housing trends report.

"We lucked upon Paige and the Houston Properties Team when we decided to locate a property inside the Houston 610 loop. We were very impressed by her professionalism and warm personality. Not only was she knowledgeable about the current market trends, but as the process unfolded, she always provided us with valuable and timely advice, regularly updating us with progress and information. She was very patient as she walked us through a complex process. She is the best Houston realtor and we hope others won't have to depend on luck to find her. If you need a realtor in Houston, call her quickly and get ready to be wowed! – Eddie (Google Review)
