Greater Houston’s 3 hottest markets in 2017

by James McClister


Spring Branch Central is going to be Greater Houston’s hottest market in 2017 – or at least that’s how Redfin sees it.

And it has a point.

With a healthy median sale price ($297,500), a fair turnaround on listings (median of 65 days on market) and a strong average sale to list of 93 percent, Spring Branch Central came into the new year poised for significant growth.

Neighborhood Median Sale Price Median Days on Market Avg. Sale-to-List %
Spring Branch Central $297,500 65 93%
San Jacinto (Galveston) 163,700 62 88.80%
Astrodome-NRG Stadium 143,000 22 96.80%

But those stats aren’t even Spring Branch Central’s strongest selling points, according to local Redfin agent Irma Jelifi. Its location is.

“Commute time is on everyone’s mind in Houston. In a city so clogged with cars and jam-packed roadways, a lot of homebuyers really prioritize finding a home in a neighborhood with quick access to nearby areas,” Jelifi said. “Spring Branch Central is a really popular neighborhood for that reason.”

Spring Branch Central is positioned between the Energy Corridor and downtown Houston, giving residents convenient access to both.
