Message from Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner
Greetings! I am Houston Mayor Sylvester Turner. Our City has a great history and story to tell. Helping to showcase this history are the City's many historic districts. As a potential homebuyer, if you are looking for a historic home and neighborhood the Houston Association of Realtors can help out with a 'homefinder' tool at www.har.com. The website features all the residential properties, including new construction listed for sale, in the City's historic districts. HAR and the City of Houston collaborated to produce this tool. HAR.com is the first Multiple Listing Service in the nation to provide this service! Once you arrive at har.com, click the 'Find a Home' link. Next, you will find an option for 'Historic Districts' under the 'Select a Property Type' heading. From there, you will be able to explore listings of homes for sale in the city's designated historic districts. There will also be links to information on the City's Historic Preservation Ordinance, historic tax exemptions and individually designated historic landmarks outside the boundaries of Historic Districts.
