Houston's New Homes Increase Standard of Living

Sep 3, 2007
When people refer to Houston new homes, they are talking about a whole different animal than anywhere else in the country. Houston has developed a reputation, and rightfully so, for being the Queen of fantastic home sites in some of the nation's most prestigious communities.

Through the careful development of Houston new homes, neighborhoods, also known as planned communities, have taken on an existence of their own, just enough removed from the downfalls of human society. These homes are models of exemplary living, and give each individual family a private place to live untouched by the majority of the criminal element that makes life so dangerous.

From its inception, there has been controversy around these communities, some even remarking that these are nothing more than cults living in some of the finer of Houston new homes. However, this uneducated approach is far from reality. People of various backgrounds, religious affiliation, and other personal choices are welcomed into these communities. It is simply a community dedicated to raising the standard of living and preventing the crime that none of us want to live with in the first place.

The outlandish remarks that planned communities have of Houston new homes are nothing short of laughable. After all, we all choose our communities based on what we can afford and how safe it is. It is an unfortunate fact of life that those who can afford to live in low crime areas do so. By building some of the finest homes behind a gate to keep the residents safe, the state of Texas initially received ample criticism. Now it is receiving accolades and other community projects throughout the country are trying to emulate Houston's success.

Houston new homes are more than just beautiful to look at. They are truly functional pieces of artwork, each crafted in its own unique vision. There is nothing more unappealing than looking at cookie cutter homes with cookie cutter lawns. Our nation is founded on a greater sense of creativity than that. Naturally, it is cheaper to design one home and create it over and over again than to give each individual home its own personality and character.

However, Houston new homes builders managed to give these homes style and class while bringing up the current standard of living. Most often, luxury is more than simply what meets the eye on the outside. Luxury is really defined by how we choose to live our lives. It is partially the quality of our home and partially the quality of our lifestyle. It can be tremendously uncomfortable to own a very fine home in the middle of a neighborhood that is not known for its stability or its safety. This is not living in luxury, but rather living in fear of losing the luxurious property you own. The homes imply that the entire lifestyle is cemented in luxury rather than just a nice home built where there was a little available space.

Houston new homes are striving to live up to a standard set many years ago when the first planned community was introduced. Despite all the negative yapping by those truly unaffected by these homes, people came to purchase in a wave of relief. The supply has yet to catch up with the demand.

Luxury home builders are giving people more than just a place to live, but a true sense of community and pride as well as the opportunity to live in relative safety. On top of that, they managed to do all this in the heart of some of the best school districts around, and if there was ever a make it or break it deal buster, it would be community living in an under par school district. This certainly didn't happen by accident.

These school districts have a long history of outperforming a large percentage of the country both in standardized testing and special education programs. There will always be critics of those who have versus those who don't. This is just a fact of life that we all must contend with from time to time.

Houston new home builders have been able to produce what everyone wants, luxury living in a simple and ethical community where family values and concern for the wellbeing of all citizens is paramount. Quite frankly, envy was the biggest motivator behind the criticism. Right underneath the surface of fear, was the knowledge that these communities were a strong contender in the race against crime.
