Your comment was over the top. Who am I to judge, though?

Does it make sense for a low-income earner who collects gov't benefits to blend it with someone who earns more, is more educated to blend in?

Don't forget crimes.

Come on, I thought this was America. Don't try to push housing that accepts Section 8 to Greenspoint, when that area is trying to better itself.

I understand but how would the folks feel living in a million $ home and the next door neighbor lives in Section 8 on Welfare?

Let people live their lives. If they want to live next to millionaires and receive welfare, that's them. I think this is why people get so frantic when an apartment complex is proposed next to their mansions.

USC, there are plenty of millionaires in Houston that live within 1/2 a mile of these complexes...it doesn't bother them. <shrug> As neighborhoods get older, people calm down a little about all the small stuff.

The point would be $$$$$$.
If you study the apartments in the area now, they are all FULL with rent at top dollar.
Almost getting $1.30 per sq ft.
The people have basically given up on owning homes right now. To get creadit or approval
for any loan for anything is almost not worth it. The banks are not giving the money or
home loans. So the alternative is apartment living which is better than owning a home.
I have been a home owner all my life and just left my home to rent a home for under what
an apartment charges. No amenities but quiet and good schools.
I work in the apartment industry for 20 years.
If I had money or backing I would build an apartment community in either Kindwood or Katy
both are on out skirts and getting alot of money for rent and the residents are staying and
paying. They are well able to afford homes but they are mostly selling. Due to economy
and unsure of economic future. More flexible being in apartments.
If I had the money I would build and manage and apartment community and I would be rich
or well on my way after a year or two. Day dreaming .............
