Services offered in Missouri City
At Green Residential, our flat-rate management fee helps to keep your rental property profitable. For your convenience, we make sure owners receive an electronic accounting statement which includes a copy of any invoice paid during the previous month. 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. We don't collect a management fee if you aren't paid, therefore we have an incentive to find the best tenant for you.
By having a Certified Public Accountant (CPA) oversee the finances of each home under management, we provide Green Residential clients with the comfort of knowing the income, expenses & security deposits related to their property are being taken care of by a professional.
Our professional leasing team ensures that each owner’s property has the best opportunity to be leased quickly. These leasing services include rental price analysis, professional quality photography, listing home on the local MLS (HAR.COM), and prompt responsiveness to potential applicant inquiries.
Our web based technology allows us to collect rent from tenants electronically and distribute rent electronically to owners at no additional charge to either party. We assess late fees and send notices when a tenant fails to pay rent on time. All late fees are passed on to our owners.
We believe that the photographs we take and use for our rental listings are important because they entice prospects to view our homes. We invest in top of the line cameras and digital photography software to provide professional quality photographs.
We provide clients with dependable, quality repair & maintenance services that can be trusted. Our administrators and contractor are the best in their category whom we have worked with for years. We understand how highly residential owners value their property, so we make sure to show their homes the amount of consideration and care they would themselves. Our prompt repair & maintenance program is one of the ways we excel.
Evicting a tenant may be one of the most unpleasant parts of being a landlord, but it can also be vitally important. Our clients can rely on our professional assistance when having to deal with this uncomfortable task.
We monitor a 24 hour support line during non-business hours to ensure that tenant emergencies are promptly responded to in order to provide excellent customer service to our tenants and ensure our Owner's property is protected.

The greater Houston metropolitan area is home to a range of interesting neighborhoods, suburbs, and regions, and Missouri City is one of the most unique. If you’re thinking about buying a rental property, an investment property, or even a home for your family, this is what you need to know about the area before scouting for properties there.
Most of Missouri City lands in the eastern part of Fort Bend County, though a portion of it spills over into Harris County to the north. Houston borders Missouri City to the northeast, and Sugar Land borders it to the west. The entire area is surrounded by unincorporated lands.
The city is approximately 17 miles from the center of downtown Houston, and occupies just shy of 30 square miles. A portion of that square mileage is occupied by water, such as that from Oyster Creek, which runs through the municipality north to south.
While Missouri City doesn’t have a public transportation service of its own, the transportation authority of Harris County, METRO, is available to residents.
Like many cities around Houston, Missouri City saw its first economic and population boosts thanks to the introduction of the railway system. Rail lines stretched from Houston to Stafford, passing straight through what is now Missouri City, back in 1853. The city was formally named in 1893, when two real estate investors purchased land in the area in an effort to promote expansion.
A blizzard in 1895 deterred many initial settlers, but those who remained began building the economy with farming and ranching. When oil was discovered at Blue Ridge in 1919, the town received renewed interest, and not long after, a salt mine brought even more jobs and people to the area. By the 20th century, thanks to the advent of modern transportation, the city became well-connected to Houston, Sugar Land, and other prosperous cities in the metropolitan area.
In the 1980s, a major economic downturn caused property values to drop and wealthy families to move out of the neighborhood. In response, an influx of middle-class African American residents began to buy up the affordable housing in the area. Many of them were first-time homeowners. Within a decade, home values started rising again, turning Missouri City into what BET once described as a “model city” for middle-class African Americans, and one of the economically strongest suburbs in the greater Houston area.
The population of Missouri City currently stands at a little over 69,000, putting its population density at 2,400 (lower than Houston, but higher than most rural suburbs). The median age is 37.9, with the majority of its citizens aged 25 and older. Missouri City is home to a racially diverse population, with 43.7 percent of its citizens being African American, 17.2 percent being Hispanic, and another 15.5 percent being Asian, compared to only a 33.5 percent Caucasian population. Over 30 percent of residents speak a non-English language, 12 percent of which speak Spanish primarily.
More than 50 percent of households make an income of $60,000 a year or more, with the median household income resting at $107,000. In addition, more than 66 percent of residents have a bachelor’s degree or higher.
Missouri City is home to one of the biggest and best-maintained parks systems in the greater Houston area. In total, the area has more than 20 different parks, covering more than 393 acres of land. Some of the most notable parks in the area include Buffalo Run, Freedom Tree, Hunters Glen, Oak Hill, Lexington Creek, and the Recreation and Tennis Center, which includes a cardio and weight room, gymnasium, batting cages, and multi-purpose rooms (in addition to public tennis courts).
There are several fun things to do in Missouri City, in addition to visiting their fantastic parks system. Several golf courses, including Quail Valley, are available. You can see a play at Miller Outdoor Theater, you can scope out the Houston Museum of Natural Science, or even visit Missouri’s SkyZone indoor trampoline park. You’re also less than a 20 minute drive to downtown Houston, where there are even more attractions to keep you entertained.
The school systems in Missouri City are adequate, but aren’t as strong as the schools in surrounding areas. They currently rank as a 6 out of 10 on GreatSchools. There are two primary school districts operating in Missouri City; the Fort Bend Independent School District serves the portion of Missouri City in Fort Bend County, while the Harris County portion is served by the Houston Independent School District.
Elementary schools include: E. A. Jones, Glover, Hunters Glen, Lantern Lane, Palmer, and Quail Valley. Middle schools include: Lake Olympia, Missouri City, Quail Valley, and Baines. High schools include: Elkins, Hightower, Thurgood Marshall, and Ridge Point. The Houston Community College System also serves the entire region.
The median closing price for a home in Missouri City is $176,000, with a median price per square foot of $117. Over the course of the past three years, home prices have remained relatively stable. Most of the houses were built post-WWII, but new houses and developments are built every year as the area generates more and more interest. The communities are strong and growing, yet houses are still affordable, making it a worthwhile consideration for investment.
The bottom line here is that Missouri City is ideal for you if:
• You want a culturally diverse area. Missouri City offers one of the most ethnically diverse populations in the Houston area, and living there is culturally enriching. It’s a suburb with character that hasn’t fallen victim to cookie-cutter, formulaic neighborhood transformations.
• You’re interested in turning a profit. Home prices have risen steadily since the 1980s, but the homes in this area are still very affordable. Since the neighborhood is riding a strong momentum of improvement, this is a perfect time and place to invest if you’re interested in buying and/or flipping a property for future profit.
• You love parks and the outdoors. You can’t beat the parks of Missouri City. If you love the outdoors and want some of the best facilities to enjoy, Missouri City is a great place to call home.
