Consistently deemed one of the hottest neighborhoods in Houston by local press, Spring Branch delivers all the conveniences and diversity of city life without making you travel very far outside the urban core at all. The close-but-far-enough-away location is partly why many first-time buyers and young families are moving here in droves. Another reason is the affordability of homes compared to surrounding neighborhoods (we’re looking at you, Memorial and most of inner-loop Houston). The many charming, 1950s-era ranches are usually available at a lower price point. The more recent construction single-family homes and townhomes cater to a broader including higher range of budgets.
An additional major reason for Spring Branch’s popularity is the zoning to some of the most sought-after, top-ranked public schools in the Houston area within the Spring Branch Independent School District.
