Back in 1840, the Texas Congress had a central government road built Austin to Kiamichi Creek, and this road passed through the area now known as Heath. When travelers came upon this land, they became settlers because they could not pass up the abundance of rich black soil, water, timber, buffalo, turkeys, deer, geese and ducks. In 1880 the area was officially known as Heath and built its first post office. From then on there was steady growth with businesses opening in town, as well as the establishment of schools and churches. Though there were some setbacks over time with fires and bad harvest seasons, today the town is a premier residential community located on the shores of Lake Ray Hubbard. Though the lifestyle here feels beautifully secluded, residents have skyline views and easy access to the Dallas Metroplex. The town of Heath boasts their exemplary schools, first-class recreational opportunities, and low-impact businesses. Residents here have enjoyed steady increases in home values since 2012 and a slightly higher median list price per square foot than the Dallas-Fort Worth-Arlington metro average. Real estate trends for Heath indicate a cool buyers market and with 291 new construction home communities available, it is the perfect time to make a move here.
