Missouri City TX Real Estate | Missouri City Homes For Sale

Missouri City TX Real Estate Guide

One of Houston’s Best Suburbs, Missouri City is appealing due to its easy accessibility, great amenities, and highly-desirable master-planned communities.

Located around 20 miles southwest of downtown Houston, Missouri City is an independent city adjacent to Sugar Land and Stafford. It features some of Houston’s best golf course communities, including Sienna Plantation.

The city has remained quite popular due to its:

  • MASTER-PLANNED COMMUNITIES: Several master-planned communities call Missouri City home, including Lake Olympia, Westpoint Estates, and parts of Sienna Plantation and Riverstone. These communities offer amenities like championship golf courses, splash pads, waterparks, swimming pools, trail networks, and lakes.
  • EASY COMMUTES: Missouri City homes have easy access to several main roads, including Beltway 8, Highway 6, Fort Bend Parkway Tollroad, US 90A, and Southwest Freeway. Residents are minutes away from key employment centers in Houston, Stafford, and Sugar Land.
  • GREAT SCHOOLS: Most Missouri City homes are zoned to Fort Bend ISD, while the small section within Harris County is served by Houston ISD schools. National Blue Ribbon Schools First Colony Middle School and Elkins High School serve sections of the city. (See Guide To Houston’s Best Schools.)
  • OUTDOOR RECREATION CENTERS: The city offers a number of green spaces, park areas, and recreational centers. Texas Gold Medal Award-winning Missouri City Parks and Recreation Department maintains 20 parks, athletic centers, and miles of hike-and-bike trails. The Quail Valley Golf, Grille & Events Center and the Sienna Plantation Golf Club are also within the city.
  • PROXIMITY TO RETAIL AND ENTERTAINMENT: Residents are also minutes away from several retail and dining options, including Riverstone Shopping Center, a 200,000-square foot retail hub stretching from University Boulevard to Riverstone Boulevard. More commercial establishments line Highway 6.

Missouri City real estate can be tricky to navigate given the number of communities in the area and diversity of builders (some far superior than others).

Missouri City TX History

Steeped in history, Missouri City traces its roots back to the Buffalo Bayou, Brazos and Colorado Railway (BBB&C). It was the first railroad in Texas and it started operating in 1853, running from Harrisburg to Stafford’s Point (now Houston and Stafford, respectively).

In 1890, two enterprising investors, R.M. Cash and L.E. Luckle, acquired a 4-square mile parcel along the rail line. The real estate investors promoted the property in St. Louis, Missouri. They called it “a land of genial sunshine and eternal summer”, an image that today still features heavily in the city’s logo.

Three years later, W.R. McElroy also purchased an 80-acre parcel in the area and ran an advertising effort similar to that of Cash and Luckel’s. He dubbed the area “Missouri City” to further tie his parcel to the earlier campaign.

The town was registered in the mid-1890s with the Harris County and Fort Bend County clerks. By 1956, residents made the move toward incorporation, due mainly to fears of annexation.

Today, Missouri City is still growing. Master-planned communities, industrial parks, and established neighborhoods make up the city, a mix of new and old.
