Houston has long been a growing metropolis that attracts people from all over the country and world. With its low cost of living, affordable housing, plenty of business and job opportunities, and world-class amenities, the city's population has grown by over 20% in the last 10 years.
As a result of this large influx of new residents: it has become increasingly difficult to find and buy an affordable new home. Due to low supply and high demand, the average home price has increased nearly 30% from May 2020 to May 2021.
While single family homes in the metro area may be hard to come by, townhome living in Houston may be worth a second look.
Buying a Townhome in Houston
Houston is actually one of the best markets to consider townhome living. For those with busy lifestyles or a longer commute, townhomes are a smart, low-maintenance home choice. The homeowners association takes care of all exterior maintenance so that you can enjoy a lock-and-leave lifestyle. That means you can spend more time doing other, more important, things — like playing golf or heading to the waterfront for the day.
New townhomes in Houston also tend to be on the larger side, since there’s more land available in Texas to build on. Plus, with a new construction townhome, you get all the benefits of intelligent construction, energy efficiency, and new home technology.
Townhome living in the Houston metro is also about enjoying a built-in community. It can be hard to meet new people when neighborhoods are so spread out, but in a townhome community, meeting new neighbors is easy whether you're out walking the dog or enjoying the amenities.

I liked the experience starting with our sales person, Sharon and our builder Drew. They made the process very easy and it was extremely exciting building our home through HistoryMaker
