Hi everybody, I'm Alfredo with Houston Katy Homes Group, I'm a realtor here in Katy, Texas and today we wanted to take you out into the neighborhood and show you what Katy's like There's a lot of great places to take your kids, these are lovely communities to live in, and there's nothing like seeing it for yourselves, so come along and join us on this excursion! I'd like us to take a quick look at one of the more established communities first and then we'll have a look at a newer community and some of the shopping and restaurants that are available in these communities
Homes in older communities typically have a bigger lot size and spacious back gardens These homes range between the mid $200's to $400's There are many more mature communities just like this one The population in the City of Katy is 18,282 Work has begun on a revitalization project for the downtown area which will preserve Katy's small-town charm while adding a modern Civic Center, visitors center and an outdoor museum with green spaces
Katy's a place where small town charm and bustling city life live side-by-side The greater Katy area which includes Harris, Fort Bend and Waller Counties has an estimated 300,000 residents This is a newer community, in fact there are still many homes being completed in this community This community comes with a beautiful playground, clubhouse, swimming pool, walking trails, and a lovely lake These homes range between the mid $300s to $500s
West Houston population growth is projected to double from 13 million to 2 million by 2045 With this kind of growth comes huge opportunities in terms of economic development We're going to drive really quick to another new build community before we look at some of the amenities, shopping and restaurants that are available This is a community that still has a number of new construction homes being built
The prices range from $200k to $300k Katy has a lot to offer young families, sports of all kinds, baseball, soccer, tennis, lots of parks for the younger children with playground facilities Katy Independent School District ranks 16 out of 995 best school districts in Texas In terms of shopping Katy Mills Mall is an outlet shopping mall with over 13 million square feet of retail space
With over 200 specialty stores, it is an indoor covered mall, which is great when the summer heat makes being outdoors unpleasant The mall is currently undergoing a $30 to $40 million renovation project Work has started on a boardwalk project to develop over 200 acres close to Katy Mills Mall These plans involve a huge lake, trails and a two-mile boardwalk with restaurants, shopping, apartments and a hotel with a conference center La Centerra is another large outdoor shopping area and it has lots of dining options with lovely outdoor spaces to sit and soak up the atmosphere
