Depending on your price range, there are numerous neighborhoods not far from the LoneSTar North Harris Campus.
Do expect to pay an extra security deposit for your pets, and unfortunately some Landlords do not allow pets at all.

Houston has a reputation for more affordable housing ... but not these days. We're in the midst of an active sellers' market, with more folks looking for homes than there are properties on the market. As a result, many families are renting, reducing the inventory to a near-record low. It's simply a matter of supply and demand. Expect to pay at least 50% more than what you've requested. I wish the news were better for you. Best of luck.... more
Shawn ... I'm not certain that there is such a list. In fact, you'll find that virtually all complexes do not permit such breeds, largely due to insurance issues ... many carriers (including the one I use for my rentals) will not cover injuries inflicted by them. In most instances, pit bulls (whatever their official breed is ... American Staffordshire Terrier, etc.) are specifically prohibited animals. Your best bet is to look in places such as Craigslist for a rental property advertised directly by the landlord. Best of luck ... I think you'll need it.... more
Not sure why Trulia would do this, but when I go to my HAR website there is a filter for Montrose and for Houston Midtown that are side by side areas. These two areas combined make up MLS Area 16 on our larger Metro Map and is inner loop and a very desirable part of town.
If you would like to check out my website and send me a message with what you are looking for, I would be happy to send you a personalized list.

I had a similar case ... thankfully I was the tenants' agent. The attorney we spoke with stated that a full refund of the security deposit, and no notification to the tenants of any damage to the property, absolves them from any further obligation. As others have stated here, the issue rests with the owners and their agent.... more
Yes it happen all the time,but that's not a wise thing for a property owner to do. You really need a S.S.N and I think all property owners, landlords should get real estate agents to lease their properties for them. When you use the correct forms it protect everyone in the long run.... more
Hello Chelsea, what is your budget and give me an idea of what particular location. I can check for you. Please email me and give me your best contact number.
Is it illegal you inform individuals about real estate? It's real estate advice. Yes, the land lord can increase the rent. He/she approved the original two roommates. Carefully read your contract. If you need assistance then yes, call an attorney.

You posted your question in Houston, TX. You might want to repost with Trulia Realtors in Florida. Likely not valid if there are blanks, but always best to speak to a real estate attorney as Realtors cannot give legal advise.

I have done quite well with sticks and bricks single family homes. You make your money when you buy not when you sell.
What is your investment strategy? Do you wish to rehab to retail, Wholesale, Owner Finance( My favorite choice)
What %of retail value are you willing to pay? I would not pay more than of 70% of a very tight CMA report. I would choose my investment home plus or minus 2 years of age, plus or minus 200 sq ft and in the same Key map page and number for only the last 6 months. If you can not get four good comps, then you can expand your distance for a search.
Come on out to the RICH club ( Real Estate Investment Club of Houston) and learn more about the game. There are dozens of ways to buy.
I will introduce you around and help you find your niche.... more
It can be sold through a Realtor just like any other property. If you (or your Realtor) are able to take good photos, keep the showings to "real" buyers with your Realtor escorting them into the home and price it for investors, it could be sold as there are many investors looking for condos....one with a paying tenant even better!
The lease is still in effect so only those investors could purchase. As you get within 45 days of the end of the lease, then any buyer could purchase as their closing would take that length of time to finish.
The key is priced correctly! Let us know if we can be of some assistance.

The voucher is based on the client income and it goes by the bedroom size. The location is does not matter but I've been told that Harris Co. voucher is slightly higher than City of Houston voucher. The typical 3 bedroom voucher is about 1,000-1,100 per month, more bedrooms more money. There are some clients that can pay their portion and some that can't. I would verify their income and go from there. The tenant should try to stay within the income guidelines.... more
This is a legal question so you want to run it buy your attorney.
What the law is and how the JPs follow the law are sometimes two different things.
In my lay person's opinion you have changed the terms of the contract/lease. You've now extended a month. So I would think yes. Some JPs don't like Pay or Quit. They just want to see a Quit letter. So in my opinion you would want to send another vacate letter (Quit). The way I read the law is you must give them 3 days, you can send them the notice or post it inside the back of the front door. I normally send regular (the law), certified (interpreted by JP) and post on the door and take a picture. If they are at home I personally hand it to them. Then you have all three methods covered. You have to give them reasonable time to have received the letter and have their 3 days before filing. So if you hand it to them personally, you could file after the 3rd day.
I've never seen one be able to pay 2 months, if they missed 1month, so get ready.
I would also talk to them. Be empathetic. If they can't pay, they need to move. Tell them you don't want to evict and eviction is very bad on their record. It will haunt them. So the best thing to do is move NOW and leave the place clean and in good condition so they can get their deposit back. However if you file, follow it through, even if they move in the process. That way you can get a judgement. Sometimes they will pay when they want to buy a car or a house in the future or get a job that checks their credit.... more
