West University Place

Median Home Sale Price:  $663,740

Price Growth Since 1990:  194%

… West University Place, a smaller city within Houston, originally chose to remain separate from the big city for tax purposes, and has its own city council, postal system and school system.  West U is effectively an urban suburb, and has the feel of a place outside the city limits.  In other words, a very desirable place to live.  Texas is home to some of the nation’s most affordable markets, yet West U has experienced extremely potent price growth since 1990.
