Moving to a new city is exciting, but nerve-racking at the same time. Houston's plentiful neighborhoods, superior medical care and quality educational opportunities make adjusting to new surroundings painless. Houston boasts one of the most diverse populations among major U.S. cities.

Houston has a wide variety of builders which makes for a competitive market. Developers successfully launched the "master-planned community" concept in the late 1960s. Homes in master planned communities have strict regulations and deed restrictions. They feature amenities such as plentiful trees and greenbelts, community centers, educational facilities and recreation areas such as pools, waterparks, ballparks and golf courses.

Master planned communities offer a mix of lush scenery and modern conveniences, with locations near wooded acreage and bodies of water enhanced by abundant schools, shopping centers and restaurants.
