We’re on the home stretch! Yesterday we opened two more categories for nominations in this, our second-annual Swamplot Awards for Houston Real Estate. Here’s the list of categories introduced so far: Most Overappreciated Neighborhood, Most Underappreciated Neighborhood, The â€œOnly in Houstonâ€ Award, Best Teardown of the Year, Best Vacancy, and Favorite Houston Design ClichÃ©. To make these awards as smart and razzle-dazzly as they can be, we need you to add your suggestions!
And now our next category: Neighborhood of the Year. What qualifications does a neighborhood need to meet in order to be declared Houston Neighborhood of the Year? You tell us — as you make your nomination! Of course, a neighborhood might be considered for Swamplotâ€™s Neighborhood of the Year award for vastly different reasons than another one might be considered for an award of the same name from, say, the GHBA.
Please note that entrants in this category — as well as all the others — need not be located strictly inside Houston’s municipal boundaries. As longtime Swamplot readers will note, we try to track the idea of Houston as it regularly travels outside the city limits. Who’da thunk it, but last year’s “Only in Houston” award, for example, went to a rollercoaster-and-residence combo in Kemah.
