Stafford Homes for Sale

In 1995, the city of Stafford decided to stop levying non-school property taxes. As a result, home buyers could benefit in lower home mortgage payments, and more businesses began to set up operations in the city. Homes for sale in Stafford feature 3 to 4 bedrooms spread over from 1,000 to over 3,000 square feet in living space. Lot sizes range from 3,000 to over 50,000 square feet. The community showcases different architectural styles, though most residences lean towards single-family traditional designs. Home prices range from the low six-figure range to the high six-figure range.

After the city's incorporation in 1956, Stafford became a home-rule city with a mayor-council type government. Deed restrictions, intelligent zoning ordinances, and commercial property regulations have helped preserve the value and appearance of the neighborhoods.
