What they said! All these people talkin about "move to sugar land" "move to Katy" don't know what the hell they're talking about. The OP already said her husband is tired of the commute so why would they move from one suburban commute from Hell for another suburban commute from Hell?

To the OP there are a ton of good neighborhoods in and close to uptown. BriarGrove, BriarHurst, and Briarcroft to name a few.

14Bricks - She said her MAX price range is 260k and it sounds like she has 3 or more kids, which means she probably wants something larger than a townhouse. It's hard to live in Houston for that price.. that's why so many families move out to the burbs. To the OP- you might get lucky & find a house in the heights or northside village. I scored a 3/2 forclosure in the 100's in northside village (77009).

Opps, my bad. I totally missed that. You're right they couldn't afford those neighborhoods on that budget. Oh well, the suburbs it is.

Omg, you guys are awesome...thanks for the zip codes that really helps when looking on HAR.com. I do have a realtor but he is a Woodlands area guy, and I will still use him cause I really like him but I thought I would do some research before making him do the drive to show us homes.


Yes my price max would be close to 280K.....(we want to be able to travel and not be house poor) I would LOVE to live IN the city, but I am realistic and know I can't afford it...so I was thinking there might be some areas "around" the area of the city we could afford....Yes...3 kids in all three ranges of schools...(elem,middle & HS)....

So is North Sugarland okay??
