According to real estate website Trulia.com, the Heights took top honors on a list of Houston neighborhoods that had the most homes viewed in 2013. A number of other real estate stories discussed the popularity of the historic neighborhood, which was one of the city’s most in-demand areas during a time when supply of available homes was limited. As a result of low inventory, some buyers had to pay a premium to secure a home in the Heights. Heights residents consider the desirability of the neighborhood a fair trade off for premium pricing.
While most of the inner city was (and still is!) in high demand, the Washington Avenue/Memorial Park area, Uptown, and Neartown/Montrose were close behind the Heights in popularity. The list was made based on page views for each neighborhood on the Trulia website. The Woodlands and Katy were not included in the study, which looked only at the city of Houston, not the entire Houston metropolitan area.
