Can you tell about any good subdivisions/neighboorhoods around Houston in Zip Codes 70026, 70020, 77009, 77011, 77003, 77547, 77506. I'm trying to move closer to work with the family and my job is very close to downtown and the drive out Katy is killing me

Thank you,
Terry

What price range? 77009 takes in part of the Heights area, Brookesmith and Sunset Hieghts. I think Norhill, which is a real good section, and Lindale Park.

77003 is east of downtown. There are some new construction townhomes. I would also check 77023 as well.

I am not placing the others off the top of my head.

Default 77003

Terry, you may want to investigate 77003 which is East of downtown, and the neighborhood is currently going through regentrification. There are quite a few new lofts and townhomes being built in the area. So I think the pricing is competitive in comparision to 77007,8,9 Heights area.

Also, it is very close to mid-town with plenty of restaurants.

Ultimately, since you live in Houston you drive around there and check it out.

JJ

77507 is industrial w/ no homes really, 77547 is Galena Park...not the best neighborhoods. I really would not want to look in the other areas you mentioned either. If you want to look at the east side, try something on the south side of the ship channel/buffalo bayou. Try 77023. If you hate the drive, you might also try places like Glenbrook Valley, Idylwood (south and east sides) or Timbergrove, Oak forest, Lazybrook on the NW side.

If you have children - try and pick one that has highly ranked schools - in the end that will be more important than your commute.

There's no crime in Friendswood? Really?

That's fascinating.

I live in 77020 close to the East End of Downtown (near Minute Maid Park) and over the last few years there have been several new townhome developments. There are still quite a few industrial buildings and warehouses in the area, but there have also been improvements in park development as well as hike and bike trails along Buffalo Bayou on the East End. The area is still rough around the edges, but also more affordable than the Heights or Midtown.
