Is The Woodlands a rich area?

Is The Woodlands a rich area? This is a complex question, and ironically, The Woodlands was created with the help from a federal government program, as not just a master planned community, but only successful master-planned community in the federal new town program.

So keep in mind, The Woodlands started its development back in the 1960s. The social program I mentioned was administered by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development to help solve social and economic turmoil plaguing major cities at the time. Title VII of the Housing loan guaranteed up to $50 million to support development of new communities that would agree to goals in affordable housing, environmental planning, and affirmative social programs.

So I assume you can see a little bit of irony here, because, overall, the answer you came here looking for is.. Yes, The Woodlands is viewed as a rich area. Back in 2004, when looking at the Houston market overall, 30% was priced below $150k. The starting cost to build in The Woodlands was $160k, yet the average home was $270k.

There are still affordable housing options today, depending on how you define affordable. Below I am going to list all your options for housing from least expensive aka "affordable" to "rich-and-famous". Lol.

Homes for Rent

Most affordable housing - apartment: Laurelwoode, Research Forest Drive, $724 for a 1 bedroom (far northwest edge of The Woodlands area)

  • Link to apartments for rent.
  • 1 & 2 bedroom condos: starting at $950 a month. Link to rentals, sorted low to high.
  • Single family home, 3 bedrooms: starting at $1495 a month. Link to rentals, 3 bedrooms and larger. Townhomes included, and starting at $1650.

There are homes of all different price points when it comes to rentals. Now we are going to switch gears, and focus on homes for sale.

• 2 bedroom condo, starting at $170k.

Single Family Homes

There are two main gated areas of The Woodlands for $1M +. Carlton Woods is a village and Carlton Woods at Creekside is an enclave.

Carlton Woods was developed first and houses a 52,000-square-foot Italianate clubhouse that was constructed in 2003. The Club at Carlton Woods is home to two nationally-recognized courses that were designed by Tom Fazio and Jack Nicklaus. The Club at Carlton Woods is where you can find a full calendar of events, a fine dining experience, and amenities that cater to your health and wellness. The club also offers a full-service spa and tennis courts. Within Carlton Woods Creekside, you can find the second club house, which was built in 2007. It is 20,000-square-feet.

Gated Villages & Enclaves:

Carlton Woods

Carlton Woods at Creekside Park

• Gary Glen, within the village Sterling Ridge, homes sit on oversized lots (about 1-2 acres), 

West Isle, within the village of Panther Creek, bordering Lake Woodlands

The Pointe, within the village of Panther Creek, bordering a lush greenbelt

Non-Gated Enclaves:

There are so many homes and enclaves in The Woodlands, and honestly all of the villages are amazing. As cliched as it sounds, it really depends on my budget and needs to help you find the best village and enclave for you. Since we are talking luxury, I wanted to show you where the concentration of million dollar (plus) homes are:

map of million dollar plus homes in the woodlands

• Largest lots: The Village of Grogan's Mill, $1M - $4 estate lots | Link to homes for sale

• You can find one of a kind homes in other villages, such as Cochran's Crossing, Indian Springs, Panther Creek, Sterling Ridge, East Shore, and Creekside Park.

• In the front of The Woodlands you will find East Shore and Grogan's Mill. The appeal of Grogan's Mill is that it is an established section of homes mostly built in the 80s and 90s, with larger lots, and lots of trees. The appeal of East Shore is its location (proximity to Town Center, Market Street, Hughes Landing, and The Waterway), and the gorgeous and newer homes. In East Shore you will find lots of different types of homes. Obviously, these are my favorite areas of The Woodlands.

As you can see, The Woodlands has a lot to offer for everyone. If you are looking to relocate to the area, I would love to answer any of your questions, and be your real estate agent.
