Hello all,

I will be relocating from Tampa to the Houston area. I recently moved to the Tampa Bay area two months ago and HATE IT!! Its just not a great place for single young professional.

I have heard that Houston is a great city for single young professionals, affordable and big. Any advise?

For young single professionals, I'd definitely recommend Uptown, Midtown,
Galleria, Montrose, etc; the Inner Loop area. The Katy area is a suburb and is a long commute into Houston. Housing is more expensive in the Inner Loop however. What is your definition of "affordable and big"?

Have you found Houston Real Estate - Houston Homes, Houston Home Value and Houston Relocation? That is the Houston Association of Realtors website. You can get an idea of homes/townhomes,condos and rental properties on that site. Moderator cut: soliciting not allowed

Houston has two basic preferred single scenes...the innerloop or near loop area: Montrose, Galleria, Midtown, Heights, Rice Village. and the more suburban scene in Clear Lake/Seabrook/Kemah area which are on the water.
Houston is a big city and commute can be a problem, so your work location figures big into what area you want to live in. With more specific info into your requirements...we can help you better. BTW avoid Katy, it is serious suburbia and definitley family oriented.

find a place to live inside the loop. that's where all the entertainment is at and commuting from outside the loop into the loop can be mind boogling. at the very least live within the tollway loop. but any further out and your in no man's land

I'd advise you come here during the hottest part of summer(July/Aug) and stay a week or more to determine if its the place for you. Don't just move here on a whim without visiting first or having some plans jobwise.
