Guide To ALL EaDo Homes For Sale
Guide to East Downtown homes, townhomes, and condos for sale.
EaDo is an emerging Houston neighborhood on the verge of reinvention. It also has one of the fastest real estate market growth in the city.
East Downtown is immediately adjacent to Downtown Houston. It is also within a few minutes from Uptown Houston, Texas Medical Center, Greenway Plaza, and the Houston Ship Channel.
Residential options include a number of new townhomes, mid-rise condos, and single-family homes.
These are some of the more affordable homes within the Inner Loop. East Downtown Houston townhomes start at $200,000 to over $500,000.
Experts believe that EaDo is undergoing sustainable real estate and commercial growth. Home prices are currently more affordable. But, it may soon follow the same strong appreciation trends of real estate in nearby Midtown, Montrose, and other Inner Loop neighborhoods.
With numerous developments all over the district, new construction homes that get sold before even being listed, and school zoning changes. Homebuyers benefit from seeking the advice of the best EaDo Houston realtor.
EaDo Houston Resources:
"The Houston Properties Team was absolutely amazing. I had initially listed with a different realtor that was recommended by a neighbor with very poor results. It was even more difficult because I was no longer in Houston and the trust I had put in the other agent was definitely taken advantage of. However, when I found Kim with the Houston Properties Team, all that changed. I was informed throughout the process and when she promised something would be done, it was. Before the experience with her, I swore off ever even considering purchasing a home again. She restored my faith in the real estate world." – Jeanette (Google Review)

EaDo Houston Neighborhood Guide
Contact Paige Martin, a top-ranked Houston realtor and head of the Houston Properties Team for questions and advice about East Downtown homes for sale.
EaDo Houston used to be the site of the Old Chinatown. Many East Asian immigrants helped shape the development of this community.
Merchants moved to the present Chinatown near Bellaire. Still, there are a number of Asian businesses and temples in East Downtown Houston.
The triangle-shaped district is directly east of Downtown Houston, hence the name. It is flanked by the Eastex Fwy to the west, Gulf Fwy to the south, and the Union Pacific Railway tracks. The tracks run from Congress to Cullen.
The East Downtown Management District renamed the district to EaDo. Its aim was to have a well-planned, high-quality community. The hip name reflects the neighborhood's vibe well and has helped in the neighborhood's redevelopment.
It's a great place for sports fans. The neighborhood is within walking distance from the BBVA Compass Stadium, Minute Maid Park, and the Toyota Center.
The lively, alternative art scene in the district attracts younger professionals who wish to live in a hip area that's near both work and entertainment venues.
EaDo is also a few minutes from the University of Houston and the Texas Southern University, making it a popular residential option for students and employees of these universities.
East Downtown Houston restaurants have some of the best Asian, Mexican, Cajun, and Texan food. It is also the site of the Houston Food Park where various food trucks serve residents lunch daily.
The EaDo district focuses on a pedestrian experience, and more retail options are expected to open soon. New MetroRail expansion routes are expected to open soon to make commuting from the district much easier.
A large portion of the neighborhood sits in the 77003 Houston zip code, while the rest falls under 77023. Nearby zip codes include: 77004, 77011, 77002, 77010, 77019, and 77006. (View Houston zip code map)
Neighborhoods near EaDo Houston include Downtown Houston, Second Ward, Third Ward, East End, Fifth Ward, Greater Heights, Northside Village, Magnolia Park, Rice Military, River Oaks, Midtown, and Montrose.
