Pearland Real Estate Guide

Nestled just south of Beltway 8, Pearland is an 80% residential, independent city. Affordable homes and convenient access to Houston continues to draw in homebuyers to the sprawling 47.5-square mile city.

Pearland real estate is very popular due to its:

Despite its continued growth, development within Pearland is uneven. This has made the local housing market a bit challenging to navigate. Other factors that contribute to this tricky market include the sheer size of the city (which can be a speed bump in choosing the best community), varying school zoning, and accessibility, among others. It is also important to note that while median sales price is rising, land values are dropping.

“I had the pleasure of working with Danielle W. It was my first home purchase and the process was quite lengthy (~10 months). Throughout the duration of the home search, Danielle maintained top notch professionalism and persistency in finding the perfect home for me. I never felt pressured to make an offer on any property, unlike my prior experiences with other agents. This alleviated a lot of stress that comes with the home search and purchasing process. After 9 months of searching, we’ve finally found the perfect home. The subliminal support from Dani continued through the loan application & closing processes, and it even extended post closing. To simply say it was a pleasure having Dani as my agent. If y’all ever get the opportunity, I’d highly recommend working with her. Once my relatives decide to purchase, I will definitely refer them over! Thank you for setting the gold standard for real estate agents Dani!” - Michael Le (Google Review)

Pearland TX History

Like Katy, Pearland’s roots can be traced back to a railroad.

In 1861, the Houston, Tap and Brazoria Railroad Company (HT & BRR) applied for a land grant in what is now a thriving, mostly residential city. After the Civil War, the railroad was left in such a bad shape that it was abandoned. Ownership changed hands a few times, until the Gulf, Colorado and Santa Fe Railroad Company secured the rights to the tracks.

The area now known as Pearland used to be called “Mark Belt”, named for a local landowner.

In 1892, Polish nobleman Withold von Zychlinski bought a large parcel of land and set up a town site on both sides of the train tracks. To further promote the area’s home sites, fruit trees were planted around the area. By 1894, “Pear-Land” was officially platted.

Today, Pearland is home to more than 100,000 residents. About 80 percent of the city is residential, with a number of master-planned communities within its borders.

One of Houston’s oldest country clubs, Golfcrest at 2509 Country Club Drive, was previously located in Houston. In 1971, it moved to its current location. Architect Joseph S. Finger was commissioned to design the new 6,900-yard course. Club amenities include the championship course, swimming pools, tennis courts, and dining and events facilities.
