"Selling your home is an emotional process. For that, it is important to work with the best real estate agency out there. From the moment we decided to sell, Houston Properties Team was there for us. They took their time to get to know us, what our needs were and when it would be the right time to sell, and for what price. We received a detailed timeline so we knew exactly where we were in the process at all times. They were very knowledgeable and went above and beyond for us. They were very patient, answered every question we had big or small promptly, and always provided us with the information we needed. I highly recommend working with the Houston Properties Team. Thanks to them, we had a very smooth sale and found the perfect new owners for our house." - Olivia Simoen-Deman (Google Review)

Piney Point Village Real Estate Trends

Piney Point Real Estate Trends

Piney Point real estate has remained strong despite slight fluctuations.

Some homeowners in Piney Point Village are tearing down old ranch-style homes and replacing them with custom-built homes. Some properties with older homes are sold as lots, though most as-is properties still sell for over $1,000,000.

Newer construction homes in the area have contributed to the higher median sales but that isn't the sole factor.

Land price and average price per square foot have also increased and this can be attributed to increased demand and low inventory.

Significant increases in property prices have made Piney Point Village one of the most expensive suburbs in Texas.

Piney Point Village TX History

In 1824, John D. Taylor (a member of Stephen F. Austin's Old Three Hundred) received a league (about 4,605 acres) and a labor of land. Taylor's league centered on "pine point," an area on the southernmost turn of the Buffalo Bayou. He settled in the area and called his house Piney Point.

By 1885, Piney Point was a station on the Texas Western Railroad. A number of German farmers had also settled in the general vicinity.

During Houston's suburban boom in the 1950s and 60s, development in the area started in earnest. Several upper-middle-class subdivisions were developed along the Buffalo Bayou.

During this period, Piney Point -- along with Hedwig, Hunters Creek, Bunker Hill, Spring Valley, and Hilshire -- were thriving communities, ripe for Houston's annexation. The six villages filed petitions for incorporation to prevent annexation and to preserve residential zoning.

Piney Point Village was incorporated in 1955 with an alderman form of government, with its own mayor and five city council members.

As a part of the Memorial Villages, Piney Point jointly operates the Memorial Villages Police Department with Hunters Creek and Bunker Hill. The Village Fire Department and the Memorial Villages Water Authority serve the Memorial Villages.

Like the other Villages, the city still has deed restrictions and building ordinances that preserve the area's serene country-living atmosphere. Commercial establishments of any kind are not allowed within the city's borders.

The city is known for its efforts in preserving its wooded areas as well. Piney Point has a village arborist to help residents care for their trees.

Today, the City of Piney Point Village is one of the wealthiest places in the state of Texas by per capita income.
