Incorporated in 1893, the population of Alvin has continued to increase over the years, even more so recently thanks to the terrific boom that's hit Houston over the past few years. Simple, quaint, and full of community spirit, Alvin offers a great selection of single-family houses and wide-open farmland, and a friendly small-town atmosphere.
No matter what kind of house or acreage property you're looking for, there are plenty of Alvin homes for sale to choose from. From simple starter homes for first-time buyers to sprawling executive homes with all the privacy you could ask for, the options are endless. Plus, because Alvin is a little further away from the major urban center, homebuyers here can enjoy more budget-friendly prices than if they were buying in areas closer to the city.
Thinking about building your own home? With so much undeveloped property available in Alvin, it's easy to build the home of your dreams in a relaxed and scenic community that has all of your everyday needs covered.
In the market for a newer house? Alvin has a terrific selection of new construction homes in thoughtfully considered communities developed by popular homebuilders like DR Horton and K Hovanian Homes.
