I know this is old but I had to comment on Al Geffon's comment. What he had right is that Summerwood is a lovely community, having lived here for 6 years. The area is growing fast and retail is moving in in the same way that the master planned community is built. Where he misses the boat on is his proximity to Houston comment. Summerwood is less than 30 minutes to downtown Houston during rush hour. Try that from anywhere else in Houston counting Clear Lake, Spring/Woodlands and Katy. Forget Cypress. Also, traffic in the NE corridor of Houston is the lightest of all areas around town. Finally, the Exxon campus is further to the North rather than South. What is being planned near Summerwood, almost adjacent is Generation Park which will bring new jobs and will help to strenghten the housing market already booming in this area. Look up Generation Park for more info.
Good Luck... more
Congrats on the new job! Be sure to throw away any and all winter clothes-you will not be needing them anymore. It is summer here from April to November. The heat is BRUTAL AND STIFLING. Maryland has very nice seasons, I lived in Laurel, MD and loved the weather there.

Houston is a fine city and offers a lot for people to do there. I grew up in Houston and spent most of my life there. What factors are going to be the important to you? Are you looking for schools, entertainment, or the less stressful drive possible?
If you are looking for the least stressful drive to Downtown possible, and don't mind living in an urban area, then the Inner Loop is where you want to be. Several neighborhoods in this part of town are being densely built with new townhomes. This is particularly so in The Heights, Memorial and Waugh, Midtown, and East Downtown. If you are looking for a good mix of housing styles and closeness to work, focus around The Heights and Washington Heights. That area has some eclectic restaurants, shopping, and offers a light-traffic commute into town via Memorial. Also, as a tip from a long-time Houstonian, Memorial Dr will likely get you from Point A to Point B much faster than IH-10 will!
Good luck on your home search, and welcome to Houston!... more

Many folks seek out neighborhoods in the top school districts, including: Cy-Fair ISD, Katy ISD, Klein ISD and Pearland ISD - although these are located in areas outside the Sam Houston Tollway loop around the city. The ratings for these school districts' elementary schools are worth checking out on: http://www.har.com/school/
Also, please consider where you will be working, as your commute into your job will be important so that you can spend as much quality time with your family as possible, and not in traffic everyday!

Best Wishes on your move!... more
Beth ... Realtors are not permitted to discuss whether a given area is "safe." You can look at crime stats on several websites ... I like www.neighborhoodscout.com. From a practical point of view, however, in a market as active as Houston's, you're not going to get very much for under $30,000. I wouldn't be surprised if the property needed at least that much work (probably more) to bring it into shape. You'll also likely notice that there is a recognizable correlation between criminal activity and the price of housing in a specific location. Even if you were to consider the home, the sale would have to be for cash only. Lenders generally don't consider financing less than $50,000. I trust this has helped ... best of luck.... more
The good news is: you closed the deal and now you have your home.
Your agent can submit a written compliant to the other agent's broker. although she/he did not break any laws, the behavior is clearly unprofessional and unkind.
You may have been able to buy the blinds from HomeDepot or some other on line store for way less trouble.
Try to put this behind you , and enjoy your home.

Both Katy and Sugarland are very family friendly. In making a decision - I would recommend a location close to work to help you make a decision. You should also be pre-qualified before you start shopping; so that when you make an offer the seller will be more willing to accept your offer. I can assist you, and also see if we can qualify you for Grant programs for first time home buyers, depending on the area you end up looking in. I would love the opportunity to speak with you. You can reach me at 713-569-0025 or email: Mary.Papageorge1@gmail.com. - Good luck! Mary... more
Hello Ms. Atkins,
There are actually quite a few neighborhoods currently that are in demand. Communities in Katy, Sugar Land, Memorial, Heights, Montrose, University, Bellaire area and others are very attractive to folks depending on what they are looking for.
As you know the Houston market picked up pace in the beginning of last year and it does not seem to have slowed. Several areas are being rejuvenated and new construction fills up very quickly. In many cases, buyers have had to wait longer than the routine construction time to move into their homes.
Glad to know you are doing your homework, but before you decide on an area, do drive around on different days and at different times of the day so you can get a really good feel for it.
Best wishes on your purchase.
