Houston's Fastest Growing Zip Codes


here are many reasons to feel optimistic about Houston’s housing market! According to the Houston Association of Realtors (HAR), 2017 was Houston’s second-best real estate year to date! 2015 was the single best year and so far 2018 is on pace to surpass 2017 and 2015 in pricing, volume and activity!

Houston’s population is also growing at record speeds with both Harris and Fort Bend Counties ranking among the fastest growing Counties in the Nation! 3 ZIP codes (Katy’s 77494 and 77449 and Richmond’s 77407) led the trend as they were named the top 3 fastest growing in the Nation, according the U.S Census American Community Survey!!

As far as individual Cities, Katy’s population increased by almost 17,000 people, Spring increased by 12,500 and Richmond increased by over 9,000, according to the Houston Business Journal. The fastest growing ZIP code in the region was 77441 in Fulshear, where the population grew from 6,511 residents to 7,928. The 21.3% increase put the ZIP code at No. 22 in the U.S.

The vast amount of recent developments along the Grand Parkway is incredible!! In the past 5 years, more than 50,000 acres have been developed within 3 miles of it’s completed sections (the new developments are noted in pink). This record breaking development comes as no surprise to those of us in the Katy, Cypress, Richmond & Sugar Land areas!
