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 do most of my business here in the City, but on occasion I have move-ins out at Katy, the Energy Corridor, Sugar Land and Spring. Visit my personal web-site or call me. Thanks and have a wonderful afternoon.

That's a good question, Gary.
I have a friend who fancies himself a pretty good cook, and he wanted to bottle up some spaghetti sauce and sell it to his friends, and the city wanted him to submit his kitchen plans for approval, which made him ask what his rights were in making up a good batch of sauce and selling it to friends.
Well, you know what happened, and thankfully, nobody got sick because while my friend is a pretty good cook, he's not a really good food packager.
In your case, you may be able to be discriminatory if it's a 1-4 family house and you don't implicate a real estate licensee. But that's not a guarantee, and you might call the local authorities to see if you are burdened by the requirements of the fair housing laws.... more
It depends on the objective. If you're looking for a place to "park" your excess funds, it could be a worthwhile component of an overall strategy. But for the individual looking to begin accumulating capital, there are other means that will produce a more desirable result.
While nice homes in desirable areas rent quickly (I have two that never stay vacant more than a few days), as an overall investment strategy such properties rarely yield a decent ROI if purchased today. This is largely a residual effect of the market collapse a few years back. Lenders now require a minimum of 20% down and a six-month cash reserve for each additional property owned, including one's own residence. Tax write-offs notwithstanding, it can take years to break even.
I personally investigated the possibility of purchasing additional rental homes, but decided against it. For my situation, I think I made the right call.... more
Both Katy and Sugarland are excellent choices and either would convenient to the Houston Medical Center. It will take you between 45 mins to an hour to drive from Katy. The drive from Sugar Land would be about 30 mins. Both areas have great housing, schools and shopping. Rents are comparable. Given the traffic in Houston I would probably select Sugar Land.
If I can help you find something please feel free to contact me.
It's possible ... but a written lease must be honored, no matter who owns the property. In most cases, only an investor would be interested, since there's a lease in effect until the end of the year. You could try to approach the tenant and offer to buy out the lease, but he/she is under no obligation to accept. A lease is a contract binding on both parties. If you wish to proceed, I strongly suggest that you contact an attorney. I wish you well.

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
