Why Should You Move to the Inner-Loop in Houston?

April 17, 2019
Published by

Everything is bigger in Texas! And that goes for the amount of people moving here. In the November 2018 published by U.S. News & World Report article, “Americans Are Moving to These 10 States,” Texas is the second most popular state Americans moved to between 2016 and 2017 according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Not only are people flocking to Texas, but people are flocking to Houston, Texas’ largest city. In a USA Today article based on a 24/7 Wall Street review of population figures from the U.S. Census Bureau’s Population Estimates Program, Houston ranked second out of 50 metropolitan areas in the States with the biggest net increase in population because of migration between 2010 and 2017. Are you considering a move to Houston? You should! Here are the top three reasons why you should consider a move to the Inner-Loop in Houston.

  1. Affordability – Compared to other metro areas, Houston is more affordable to live in Houston than Atlanta, Chicago, and New York. In addition, it also cost less than in Houston than it does in Austin or Dallas. Houston’s Inner-Loop offers homebuyers plenty of options affordable housing. Sandcastle Homes builds in the best sections of the Inner Loop including Camp Logan, Cottage Grove, Heights, Montrose, Rice Military, Shady Acres, Sunset Heights, and West End. We offer a wide array of homes in Houston TX with different styles and floor plans starting from the high $300’s to mid $600s.
  2. Jobs, jobs, and more jobs – There are an abundance of jobs in Houston. And not just in the oil and gas industries. There are startups and shared workspaces, to jobs in the aerospace, aviation, energy, manufacturing to medical business verticals that all call Houston home. Plus, the zoning laws are more relaxed than in other cities, making it easier for small business owners to open up businesses and thrive.
  3. Lots of things to do – The Inner-Loop is a bustling, fun, and vibrant area offering something for everybody to enjoy. If you want to be part of the scene, relax, enjoy outside, ear, or learn, Houston’s Inner Loop has it all. There are plenty of dining, entertainment, and shops within the Inner Loop. Plus, there is plenty of parks and green space, places to work out, an aquarium, zoo, children’s museum, and a theater district. Montrose has art museums, galleries, historic buildings, and thrift and vintage shops. Attractions nearby Rice Military include the Alley Theatre, Galleria, and Toyota Center. Additionally, there are an abundance of sports teams in Houston. From professional teams like the Astros, Comets, Rockets, and Texans to rodeos, high school sports, and collegiate tams at the University of Houston and Rice University.

  • "I just moved into my new Sandcastle home and I think it’s a wonderful place to live. They have been very helpful, particularly Lynette and Steven. From the owner Mike Salomon down, it has been a truly positive experience. I would highly recommend anyone who wants to buy a new home that is built of high quality to consider this home builder." Neal Massey
  • "I purchased my house on 1/31/17. I have the Coronado plan. The process of adding upgrades was very easy. The closing went very smoothly. Mike was great to work with! Since the closing, I’ve had a few minor issues come up. I can’t say enough about Steven! He has always been extremely helpful and has fixed all of these minor issues or set me up with the person who can fix them. He is great!
    I love my home! I feel like I got a good value for the location. I look forward to enjoying my house in the years to come!" Kris Kieta
  • "We just moved into our new home by Sandcastle. Since the beginning of the process the whole Sandcastle team paid great attention to our requests and responded rapidly. We were lucky to get in contract in time for us to choose colors, kitchen design, finishes and other and all our requests were reflected in our new house. At the end of the closing, the team always kept the same great attitude towards us and helped us with any question or request. We would say one of the greatest things about Sandcastle is that they really back up what they sell: best price, best service, best quality in town. We ended up extremely pleased with our new house." Andres and Marcela
