Independence Heights Houston: Maps, Real Estate & Homes For Sale

Independence Heights Houston Real Estate

Independence Heights is one of the few Houston neighborhoods with a “Super Neighborhood” status.

Independence Heights is a Greater Heights subdivision located just outside the Inner Loop. It is bordered by Tidwell to the north, Shepherd Drive to the west, the 610 Loop to the south, and Interstate 45 to the east.

The neighborhood is nestled in the corner of North Loop Freeway (610 Loop) and North Freeway, giving residents easy access to major Houston hubs like Downtown, The Galleria, Museum District, and Montrose.

  • AFFORDABILITY: Together with nearby Garden Oaks and Oak Forest, Independence Heights offers some of the more affordable home options in the area. This is specially true when you compare the properties to homes for sale within nearby neighborhoods inside the Loop.
  • SMALL-TOWN VIBE: Independence Heights real estate is part of Houston’s “Super Neighborhood” program. The program encourages residents, institutions, civic organizations, and businesses in the area to work together and improve the community.
  • EASY COMMUTE: Residents enjoy easy access to schools, restaurants, retail stores, entertainment centers, and parks. Independence Heights homes are less than 30 minutes from key employment and business districts like Downtown and the The Galleria. The neighborhood is also part of the Greater Heights area, one of Houston’s Most Accessible Neighborhoods.

  • GROWING POPULARITY: The neighborhood’s convenient location close to the Inner Loop, accessibility, recent redevelopments, and proximity to Houston Heights, one of the Hottest Inner Loop Neighborhoods, make Independence Heights a neighborhood primed for “revival”.

Independence Heights real estate is tricky to navigate given the neighborhood’s proximity to railroad tracks and major thoroughfares, as well as the number of home options available. Homebuyers can benefit from the assistance of a top Houston realtor familiar with the area and the market.
