Northside Village TX Real Estate Guide

Nestled a couple of blocks north of downtown, Northside Village is one of Houston’s up and coming neighborhoods.

Made up of several smaller communities, Northside Village / Near Northside is one of Houston’s oldest neighborhoods. It is a promising neighborhood undergoing redevelopment.

Residents enjoy:

  • PROXIMITY TO DOWNTOWN: Living a few blocks from the heart of Downtown Houston has its perks: easy access to major business, retail, cultural, and entertainment centers. The downtown area is home to more than 3,000 businesses and 100,000+ employees.
  • EASY METRORAIL ACCESS: Several METRORail Red Line stations in Near Northside connect its residents to key Houston districts, including the Texas Medical Center. The Med Center is the largest medical complex in the world with over 50 hospitals, specialty facilities, and schools.
  • SHORT COMMUTES: Located near some of Houston’s most accessible neighborhoods, Northside Village homes are near major freeways, including Interstate 45, Interstate 10, Loop 610, and Main Street. Residents have easy access to more retail, entertainment, and dining options in Rice Military, Montrose, and the Heights.
  • HARDY YARDS PROJECT: Hardy Yards, directly south of the Near Northside area, is a previously neglected railyard for the Union Pacific and Southern Pacific Rail. The mixed-use development will inject new life into the area by bringing parks, retail, restaurants, and business centers, among others.
  • AFFORDABLE HOMES: Northside Village real estate is more affordable than those in nearby neighborhoods, including Houston Heights, Rice Military, and Garden Oaks. Homes in the area can start at under $100,000. (See The Salary I Need To Buy A Home In Houston’s Best Neighborhoods)
  • QUIET COMMUNITY ATMOSPHERE: Despite the neighborhood’s proximity to Houston’s busiest hubs, Near Northside exudes a quiet, small town atmosphere.

Near Northside real estate can be challenging to navigate due to some factors, including proximity to main roads and freeways (which can affect resale values). Some homes are also close to train tracks, which can also raise issues. New construction in the area can pose quality issues. Development is still quite uneven, so while homes in some areas/communities can sell for a premium, others will sell at a discount.
