City Guide
Webster
Flying High in Webster

By far, the biggest bragging point for this Harris County city and its 10,400 residents is location, location, location. Tourists coming to experience the adventure of the Lyndon B. Johnson Space Center find lodging aplenty just three miles away in Webster. This is a prime location for people working at both the space center and in the city of Houston. Over 88 percent of the residential real estate is rental units. The high number of rentals in Webster leads to protracted vacancy issues. In other words, finding a place on the quick should not be too much of a problem. You can start looking the month prior to moving.

Property owners in Webster are all too familiar with the expense that goes along with empty rental units, making them less security conscious. At the very least, you will need a photo ID and a security deposit. Some proprietors may ask for at least one month's rent in advance as well.

The Neighborhoods of Webster

With less than seven square miles and under 11,000 residents, it is not surprising that Webster doesn't have a wide variety of neighborhoods to offer. In fact, there are only two designated sections in the entire town. Rental real estate in the area consists of small studios, large complexes, high rises, and duplex for rent.

City Center: City Center covers the north half of Webster, from Bay Area Boulevard to West NASA Parkway. City Center is the region closest to the Space Center. Like all of Webster, it has a high vacancy rate, so finding 1 bedroom apartments in this area shouldn't be much of a challenge.

Old Galveston Road: The southern end of the town of Webster extends from West NASA Parkway all the way to Clear Creek. This neighborhood puts you right on the edge of the water, so think about finding rental condos or homes in this area.

Life in Webster

Going to the Moon

The people of Webster have stars in their eyes. Not literally, but much of the town's tourism focuses on its close proximity to the space center. Even many of the street names have something to do with space travel or NASA. Staying in Webster puts you within miles of space adventure in the form of exhibits, attractions, and theaters. Drop by the Northrop Grumman Theater and find out what it's like inside the space station. Take the tram to see Mission Control and stop by the Starship Gallery to view artifacts from space. South of town, you'll find the Challenger Seven Memorial Park.

For Those Who Don't Dream of Space Travel

Yes, life in Webster means you have the potential to become a NASA groupie, but there is more to this little town than space fans. Living in Webster puts you close to many other Texas cities. Just to the south of Webster off Interstate 45 is League City, home to San Jacinto College. Travel north to visit Clear Lake.

Webster sits on the edge of some impressive waterworks, too. To the east of town is Peace Lake, Cow Bayou -- yes, you read that right -- and Lake Nassau, where you can visit the Nassau Bay Peninsula Wildlife Park. Take advantage of some of the top-rated hiking trails in or near the town, including McKinney Falls State Park, Wild Basin Wilderness Preserve, Inks Lake, and Cullen Park Hike and Bike Trail.

There are more than 100 restaurants and five nearby farmers markets not far from the heart of Webster, and you can also take in a movie at the Star Cinema Grill on West NASA Road.

Getting Around Webster

Here's a fun fact: five percent of Webster residents commute to work on a bike. The town offers trails and bike routes that make this the place for bike commuters to find apartment rentals. Webster sits close to some major travel routes, as well. You can hop on I-45 and drive into the heart of Houston. NASA Bypass to the south of town will take you to the space center.

The downside of finding apartment rentals in Webster is mass transit -- there aren't any public transportation options for local residents to get around Webster (which explains all the bikers). However, Harris County does have bus lines that go from Webster to Houston, so commuters and tourists do have public transportation options into the city. There are also buses that take you from Webster to the space center or to the Bay Area Park and Pool.

If you are looking for a small town that puts you close to some of the best attractions Texas has to offer, then you'll be "over the moon" for Webster.

Methodology - Recent Updates:

Data from private listing sites, including our own, tends to skew toward luxury apartments, which introduces sample bias when estimates are calculated directly from these listings. To address these limitations, we’ve recently made major updates to our methodology, which we believe have greatly improved the accuracy and reliability of our estimates.

Read more about our new methodology below, or see a more detailed post here.

Methodology:

Apartment List is committed to making our rent estimates the best and most accurate available. To do this, we start with reliable median rent statistics from the Census Bureau, then extrapolate them forward to the current month using a growth rate calculated from our listing data. In doing so, we use a same-unit analysis similar to Case-Shiller’s approach, comparing only units that are available across both time periods to provide an accurate picture of rent growth in cities across the country.

Our approach corrects for the sample bias inherent in other private sources, producing results that are much closer to statistics published by the Census Bureau and HUD. Our methodology also allows us to construct a picture of rent growth over an extended period of time, with estimates that are updated each month.

Read more about our methodology here.

About Rent Reports:

Apartment List publishes monthly reports on rental trends for hundreds of cities across the U.S. We intend these reports to be a source of reliable information that help renters and policymakers make sound decisions, and we invest significant time and effort in gathering and analyzing rent data. Our work is covered regularly by journalists across the country.

We are continuously working to improve our methodology and data, with the goal of providing renters with the information that they need to make the best decisions.
