The Woodlands, TX Real Estate, The Woodlands Area and Community Information



The History of Real Estate in The Woodlands Spans Approximately Four Centuries:

The first people who settled near what is now The Woodlands TX real estate market were Akokisa and Bidais Indians who settled near the area approximately four hundred years ago. These people were a part of a larger tribe known as the Atakapans who lived near Galveston Bay until the early 19th century.

The area remained unsettled until 1964 when the Mitchell Energy and Development Corporation purchased 23,000 acres of land that was converted into The Woodlands' first homes for sale during the 1970s using a scaled approach that enabled home buyers to select a floor plan that suited their needs and budgets.

The demand for The Woodlands homes for sale that met the needs of young families grew rapidly during the 1990s after Houston-area residents discovered the value of The Woodlands' prime location near Interstate 45 and Houston's largest employers. This discovery encouraged developers to construct a mall, the Cynthia Woods Mitchell Pavillion and the Lone Star Community College's Montgomery Campus near many of The Woodlands TX homes that catered to the needs of families.

The Woodlands real estate market is now located in a beautiful planned community that offers the Woodlands home buyers who are searching for the best deals on high-quality homes safe neighborhoods, many outdoor activities and several flexible home designs. These benefits make homes located in the Woodlands housing market a wonderful value for anyone that relocates to the greater Houston area.
