PEARLAND REAL ESTATE GUIDE

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

Residents enjoy:

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.

"Our experience with Houston Properties Team was fantastic and we are very grateful that we made the decision to hire their team when we did. We were looking for a dynamic group of people with a great reputation in the Houston area, that could promote and sell our house in a relatively reasonable time, using the most suitable marketing tools, and we were not disappointed." - German Torres (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.
