Pearland Great news for those considering entering into the Pearland housing market! On February 19, 2010, Forbes Magazine announced that Houston is one of best places in the nation to buy real estate because of its stable industries.
Francesca Levy writes that Houston's energy sector has "kept jobs flowing into Texas oil town Houston." Furthermore, Levy notes that the good job market in Houston means that the housing outlook will stay strong. "Houston home prices are expected to rise 1.2% by next year; it's one of only four of the markets we ranked where prices won't continue to slide, according to Moody's Economy.com."
So what does this mean for the Pearland housing market? Essentially, it means that, like most of the suburban areas of Houston, will continue to flourish. In the State of the City Address on February 18, 2010, Pearland Mayor Tom Reid called attention to the notable statistics that Pearland is the nation's 34th fasted growing city and Texas' 9th fastest growing city - Amazing! Indeed, Pearland has grown from a population of 37,600 in 2000 to over 95,000 in 2009!
Owning a home in Pearland has many advantages. Located 18 miles south of downtown Houston, Pearland is less than 25 minutes from the Theater District, Minute Maid Park, Toyota Center and other entertainment venues. In addition, the nationally renowned Houston Medical Center is a short 15 mile drive from Pearland. Second, Pearland homes are located in a Texas recognized school district with state of the art facilities including the new Glenda Dawson High School.
Third, owning a home in Pearland gives you access to some of the best shopping around! In addition to great locally owned shops, Pearland is also home to the Pearland Town Center that is home to Macy's, Dillard's, Barnes and Nobles and many more!
Finally, I have to say that one of the best reasons to own a home in Pearland is the "small town" feel it has despite its fast growth. The people are friendly and, in my opinion, this town is one of the most active communities I know of. The City of Pearland host seasonal events such as a July 4thCelebration complete with fireworks, Winterfest and a summer concert series in the park. If you are looking for a great place to live, consider Pearland - we have a lot to offer!
