AS TEMPERATURES CONTINUE TO RISE, home sales in Houston have experienced a cooldown, and inventory has reached the highest since November 2020.

While there are finally more homes on the market, buyers are facing a new challenge. According to HAR, median home prices increased 11% in June to $436,425, and a lack of homes priced below $250,000 has left buyers with no choice but to weigh more expensive property options.

If you’re in the hunt for a home below the current price trend or just browsing what’s on the market, we found five homes in the Houston area with large living spaces and backyards perfect for summer lounging.

Scroll ahead for five homes listed for under $400,000 in Houston.

9614 Val Verde St., Houston, TX 77063



It’s not often that I comment on a home’s garage and front door color choice, but the doors on this home deserve some spotlight. The dark-colored garage door contrasts with the home’s beige exterior, and the light blue door adds a bright pop of color. Wood accents throughout the 1,958- square-foot home, such as the cabinets in the kitchen, sliding doors in the family room and double doors in the primary bedroom, bring warmth to the home. Among the three bedrooms and two and a half bathrooms are a primary bedroom and bathroom, which has a frameless glass shower decorated with blue tile. The light shines through the home’s main room thanks to a wall of windows looking out to the backyard. The yard includes a pebbled seating area, which only needs a fire pit to be perfect for evening get-togethers.

The primary bedroom has a coved ceiling and en suite bathroom with his-and-her vanity sinks and walk-in closets. Upstairs has a game room and an additional private guest suite.
