We invest in web-based technology to make sure our team responds promptly to requests from owners, investors, and tenants. In addition, Green Residential minimizes the number of homes each employee is responsible for managing. This allows our clients to receive the professional attention they deserve.
We screen all prospective tenants at no cost to our clients. We screen tenants based on their credit, employment, and rental history, as well as conducting a criminal background check.

Your Guide to Friendly Clear Lake, Texas
The draw of Houston is strong for many, both around the state and nationwide. But most people are looking for a bit of balance in their lives. They want the amenities of a big city, with the peace and quiet that comes with living in a safe, residential neighborhood. It’s because of this desire that so many choose to call the Clear Lake region home.
What is Clear Lake?
The Clear Lake Area is a region in southeast Texas that’s comprised of parts of Harris and Galveston Counties. It’s a part of the Galveston Bay Area and is characterized by numerous bodies of water, including Clear Lake, Taylor Lake, Clear Creek, and Galveston Bay.
As the name suggests, Clear Lake gets its name from Clear Lake, which is a brackish body of water that is fed by Clear Creek and empties into the bay. When you hear the term Clear Lake, it can refer to any number of things. Some people use it to refer to the actual lake, others use it as a general title for the area, and even more use it to describe Clear Lake City – a well-known master planned community.
In this article, we’ll discuss both the Clear Lake Area and Clear Lake City – using these two terms to differentiate between them.
Get to Know the Clear Lake Area
According to the Clear Lake Area Chamber of Commerce, which was established back in the 1960s, the area is made up of Clear Lake City, Clear Lake Shores, El Lago, Kemah, League City, Nassau Bay, Seabrook, Taylor Lake Village, Webster, and even parts of Houston and Pasadena. Each of these communities lies on or near the lake. And while they all have their own identities, you’ll frequently hear residents tell people they’re from the Clear Lake Area.
It wasn’t until the late 18th century/early 19th century that the Clear Lake Area actually began to be developed. Small farming and fishing communities started emerging and railroads were constructed in the nearby areas, which connected these outposts to big economic centers like Galveston, Harrisburg, and Houston.
After the oil boom in 1901, oil wells and refineries started popping up all around Houston and the Clear Lake Area became seen as a recreational destination for wealthy oil businessmen with money to burn. Prior to being shut down in the mid-20th century, there were even a number of casino districts in the area.
But the real growth happened when NASA’s Johnson Space Center was built in the area in 1963. This, combined with the staggering expansion of Houston, turned the Clear Lake Area into a full-fledged community.
Get to Know Clear Lake City
With NASA’s Johnson Space Center employing thousands of people, the Clear Lake Area became a big professional destination. It was then that Humble Oil and Refining Company – which had purchased 30,000 acres of land in southern Harris County from James Marion West back in 1938, decided to partner with Del E. Webb Corporation to form a jointly owned company to develop a 15,000-acre master planned community. The partnership became known as the Friendswood Development.
On September 15, 1963, Governor John Connally participated in a ceremony to officially launch Clear Lake City. By 1968 – less than five years after the opening – Clear Lake City had a population of 3,785. There are now estimated to be more than 63,500 residents.
Much like other master planned communities in the Greater Houston area, Clear Lake City is divided up into various neighborhoods. These include – in no particular order – Camino South, Clear Lake Forest, Middlebrook, Meadowgreen, Northfolk, Bay Forest, Bay Knoll, Bay Glen, Bay Point, Bay Oaks, Brookwood, Brook Forest, Pinebrook, Oakbrook, and Oakbrook West.
Clear Lake Area Demographics
Interestingly, Clear Lake is pretty culturally diverse area, when compared to the rest of the state and country. Less than half of the population is white, and there’s a large number of Hispanics and Asians.
Surprisingly, a higher percentage of people with South American and Iranian ancestry call Clear Lake home than just about any other neighborhood in the entire country. Furthermore, 4.6 percent of Clear Lake City residents five years old and above speak Urdu, the national language of Pakistan. For perspective, that’s higher than 99.6 percent of all communities in the United States. Much of this diversity can be equated to NASA’s presence as a multicultural employer.
Clear Lake is highly educated – as you would guess with the technical industries nearby. More than 36 percent of residents have a college degree, while 22.8 percent have a graduate degree. As far as occupational employment goes, there’s roughly a two thirds-one third split between white collar and blue collar jobs.
The average household income in the Clear Lake Area is $109,836, while the median household income is $90,282. The average household net worth is right around $626, 824.
Clear Lake Area Schools
The Clear Lake Area is serviced by the Clear Creek Independent School District for primary and secondary education. In 2009, the district was ranked as a “recognized” district, which is the second-highest honor bestowed by the Texas Education Agency.
As far as higher learning goes, the University of Houston-Clear Lake is in the area, while a number of other technical colleges and state universities – such as Rice University, the University of Houston, and San Jacinto College – are just a short drive away.
Clear Lake City Real Estate
For all of the amenities available, Clear Lake City real estate is actually quite affordable. According to Realtor.com (as of May 2017), the median listing price is $239,000 for a single-family home, while the price per square foot is right around $113. The market is definitely starting to turn upwards, however, as the median closing price over the past few months was just $148,000.
Rentals are also pretty popular in Clear Lake City, and the average rental rate is $1,138. That’s higher than 63.7 percent of other rentals in the state of Texas. The vacancy rate for all of Clear Lake City is just 2.4 percent, which is lower than 90.3 percent of all neighborhoods in the country. With demand being so high, look for property values and rental rates to increase.
What to Do in the Clear Lake Area
While most people just assume people from Clear Lake head into Houston for entertainment, there’s actually a lot to do without ever leaving the area.
The Johnson Space Center is the primary attraction and has something interesting for everyone to enjoy, regardless of age. But if you’d rather spend some time outdoors, you can do that too. There’s plenty of good fishing, hiking, wildlife watching, and golf in the area.
If a lazy day of shopping, eating, and drinking local craft beer is more your style, you’ll enjoy hanging around some of the area’s shopping districts.
