The East Downtown Neighborhood

East Downtown is one of Houston's most vibrant and rapidly growing neighborhoods. It is home to a 107,000 population. Located in what was once regarded as the outskirts of town, this inner-city community has dramatically turned over the past five years. Nowadays, EaDo, as they call it, is quickly becoming a hot spot for new home builders and developers while also attracting investors and landlords who are looking to acquire income-producing properties. Several reasons for choosing this neighborhood are the area's walkability and proximity to downtown, major employers, and shipping and industrial centers which make it highly sought after.

In addition to that, according to Houston Properties Team, there are six reasons why EaDo makes an interesting neighborhood;

1.) New Developments: New infrastructures and road projects for the redevelopment projects. Major freeways and thoroughfares are easily accessible from the neighborhood. With the building of MetroRail stations at the East End Corridor and Southeast Corridor, the district will soon be accessible.

2.) High Accessibility: There are a lot of accessible neighborhoods in Houston, but Eado's boundary lies with other small neighborhoods making it much accessible to other attractions such as restaurants, bars, breweries, and gyms.

3.) Strong Real Estate Market: Competing offers on properties continue to drive prices into record territory, solidifying Houston's reputation as a sellers' market. Mirroring the redevelopment efforts, property values have appreciated over the past decade. Median sales prices have increased by 23%, while prices per square foot have risen by $149%.

4.) Affordability: Despite being a reputable neighborhood, land value is half the cost compared to Downtown. EaDo homes for sale have price ranges between $200,000 to over $500,000.

5.) Proximity to Job Centers: Close to Downtown where commercial centers, Texas Medical Center, Houston Ship Channel, and Greenway Plaza are located.

6.) Broad Ranges of Housing Options: Eado offers various units such as townhouses, condominiums, and single-family homes.

Finding the right neighborhood certainly takes time and effort. If you're thinking of relocating to Houston, East Downtown is a great neighborhood to consider. It's centrally located, making it easy to get around, and there are plenty of restaurants and bars in the area. With numerous developments throughout the district, new construction homes that sold before they are even listed, and school zoning changes, homebuyers may benefit from consulting with the best EaDo Houston realtor.
