scope of housing choices in Houston’s Great Northwest is broad.
Virtually all types of housing are found within the area. Included are
new custom homes, new production/builder homes, townhouses, apartments,
rental homes, and homes on the resale market.
An ample supply of resale listings are on the local home market at the
present time. The greater northwest area’s residence count exceeds
200,000, and over 3,000 total resale listings are usually available.
This inventory offers many choices to prospective home buyers. Resale
home prices generally range from the $70,000 level to $1 million or
more. A majority of the resale transactions in northwest Houston have
been made in the $90,000 to $200,000 price range.
The quantity of homes available for rent in northwest Houston is
somewhat limited. Few homes lease for less than $700 per month. Most of
the rental homes in the local area lease in the $800 to $1,400 range.
Over 100 apartment projects are located in the greater FM 1960 area of
northwest Houston. Although occupancy levels for most of these projects
generally exceed 90 percent, several thousand units are available for
lease. Most of the available apartments include one or two bedrooms.
Some efficiency and three-bedroom units also exist. Most monthly
apartment lease rates begin in the $400 to $750 range.
