Doesn't look like Houston. There are a lot more trees in most areas of Houston. Also the use of red brick seems much more common than the brown/tan brick.

actually most of the brick houses in the town are red, it just happens that the pics I got were the brown ones, some of the older brick homes are light brown too.

Default A Desert Wasteland?

Wherever they are, I do not wish to live there. The first and second ones, seem to be in some desert-like area that has long been forgotten. Obviously, there is a shortage of water, or the water is too expensive.

It could be Yuma. I have also seen houses like that in certain areas of Arizona near the Mexican Border, poor areas of New Mexico, and by the desert part of California, and Texas. The trees are scorched, on some of them, yet the grass is green. Not a place where I would like to live, no matter how big the houses are , and how new. I love nature's greenery.......
