Ok folks,

A serious decision in my life is being made, need some advice before I go in for a home purchase.

Found a lovely dream house in Louetta Rd / Stuebner Airline Rd neighborhood, zip is 77379, Oakwood Glen HOA.

How is this neighborhood? I know that the schools are excellent, but how about crime rate, people living here, etc?

Any advice will be appreciated and would help a lot!

Cousin lives there, good solid neighborhood, very working class for the area though so you'll have some interesting neighbors, but nothing to worry about. Congrats. Good deal for the area.

Thanks for advice!

As far as interesting people, what do you mean by that?

Also, are there any outstanding neighborhoods that I should perhaps consider? Being new to the area, I'm a bit lost in all the subdivisions and districts.

I am just a tad south, off Stuebner. The neighborhood is fine.

Drive around the neighborhood at night yourself and form your own opinions.

By interesting people I guess I mean that a couple of his (my cousins) neighbors are international families that have different definitions of behavior and boundaries. I think the low entry price compared with other neighborhoods (one of the few that have prices starting under 100k in the most desirable part of Klein). But he's never had a crime issue.

I can tell you a reason to move there... proximity to Meyer and Collins Park plus Barbara Bush library
And a reason to not move there.... driving 249 into downtown

That subdivision sits between two very well run subdivisions. Spring Creek Oaks and Memorial Northwest are organized enough and well run enough to have a large presence in the community.

Peculiar neighbors are not just in entry level subdivisions. How would you like living next door to Dr. Brown of the carpel tunnel fame? Those grow houses all over northwest Harris country were renting for 2-3000 a month.

I doubt there is crime problem. Check crimereport.com. HCSO reports anything within 24 hours.

249 is hell in the mornings. I swear everyone and their mom is coming from Tomball. This morning accident at Cypresswood. I was like WTF people.

If you're going downtown you'll have issues because they didn't plan for everyone to live out here so the 2 lanes that go around to the Beltway and 45 are no joke It's like 290 bumper to bumper slow. If going in the opposite direction Beltway wise you'll be fine.

You'll be fine in Oakwood Glen. As far as the area it's not highly sought after though. There's some apartments nearby so that's a good reason why. But it's not bad because the whole areas pretty nice...unless you hang out with shady people. Crime is associate based around here.
