A Look at Katy Texas Demographics By Zip Code

Real Estate Agent with Roots & Wings Realty Group / Champions Real Estate Group TREC #702048

The greater Katy area surpassed the city of Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania in population numbers in 2015 – with more than 309,000 people calling the Katy area their home. With strong economic opportunities and an award-winning school district, the Katy area is expected to see continued growth over the coming decade. 


But who - exactly - lives in the greater Katy area - and where? Check out the demographic breakdown of the Katy zip codes below.


KATY 77494

Home to more than 100,000 Katy residents, this zip code was one of the fastest growing zip codes in the country for several years. The 77494 zip code is home to over 100,000 people and 31,000 households and has the highest median income and the highest percentage of people holding a Bachelor's degree in the Katy area. 77494 is also home to both Cinco Ranch and Firethorne - two of the best known subdivisions in Katy.




KATY 77493

Homes in 77493 span across three counties: Harris, Waller, and Fort Bend. It's the lowest populated zip code in Katy, with a little under 40,000 residents living within its borders. That's expected to change over the next decade though, as available land in other zip codes has dried up and developments like Elyson, Ventana Lakes, and Cane Island  have quickly set up shop in the 77493 zip code. 77493 is also the home to Katy Proper, lovingly referred to by residents as Old Katy. Residents in 77493 are the second most likely to own their homes vs. rent them.




KATY 77450

Katy 77450 contains some of the more affordable housing options in Katy, featuring multiple Katy homes for sale under $300,000. Home to more than 75,000 people in more than 25,000 households, 77450 is the place you'll find well established and affordable subdivisions like Cimarron, Governors Place, and Memorial Parkway. 77450 also contains the famed Kelliwood neighbrohood. People in the 77450 have a higher percentage of renting vs. owning than any other zip code in Katy, making it a popular area for investors. 




KATY 77449

The 77449 zip code is unarguably where you'll find the most affordable housing in Katy. It's the closest to Houston, making for a shorter commute. This zip code is fairly dense, with over 100,000 residents living in over 32,000 households. People residing in the 77449 zip code have the highest percentage of people who have never been married. This area is home to numerous affordable subdivisions like Barker Village and Williamsburg Colony, and contains the highest percentage of Katy homes for sale under 200K.
