Katy, Texas, just west of Houston, maintains its small-town feel despite the area around it having one of the most rapidly growing real estate markets in the nation. On top of that, its public school system is excellent. With over 300,000 residents and counting, the city is a popular relocation choice. Spanning zip codes 77449, 77450, 77491, 77492, 77493, and 77494, the area lies within Harris, Waller, and Fort Bend counties.
Katy's housing is safe and affordable, and its proximity to Houston makes it ideal for commuters who work in fields such as oil and gas, medicine, and countless others. It's just a 20-minute drive away from downtown Houston.
