Hi, I signed a contract for a great job but with a less than ideal location it seems. At the time I accepted, I didn’t realize it wasn’t that great of an area.

I am looking to rent a 4 bedroom house max budget of $1900-$2000 (ideally I’d like to keep it around $1500-1600) close to here in a SAFE area. Any advice? I found a home I like and after applying, I looked at the crime rates and was very concerned as I was eventually going to have my family move here too. The home is in a small subdivision off s shaver Street on a road called Tierra Park. If you are familiar with this area—would you love here? What is the area like? I am Willing to pay more for safety but i can’t find any nicer homes close by within a 5 minute drive to a masjid (personal preference and a deal breaker) and 20 minutes commute to work.

What is the safest part of pasadena? Middle to upper class area (looking more for upper class area where I don’t be robbed or worse). Is it really as bad as everyone is telling me? (I am not from this state).

Pasadena is spread over a fairly large area......so where you are working might have some impact on where you want to live, but in general, Clear Lake and Friendswood are the residential areas where a lot of the NASA people work, and are fine places to live.

Clear Lake is adjacent to Pasadena, look in zip codes 77062 & 77059.

Agree. Pasadena is pretty spread out, and there are some very nice areas, specifically those close to Clear Lake and NASA, Taylor Lake Village, for example. I think the area you reference is too far North. Look for locations with Houston (see the zip codes referenced above), Seabrook or Pasadena addresses west of Hwy 146, as close to roads like Red Bluff Road, Kirby, Repsdorph as possible. Look for homes in the Clear Creek School District (CCISD). As previously mentioned, parts Friendswood are also good options.

Your radius is going to be limited to an extreme extent by this. Good Luck.

Good catch, I didn't see that part. Fortunately, looks like there are a couple in the Clear Lake area.

Might have to give a little on the 20 minute commute though - depending on where in Pasadena that job is.

Off-topic, but is Wazoo a reference to Waziristan?

Shaver is old and not the best area. If in Pasadena, you want to be in zip code 77505. The best neighborhoods are near fairmont parkway and space center boulevard.
Look at Baywood Oaks, Providence, turtle creek, santorini, village grove. All perfectly safe, super convenient to a lot of things and near the main roadways to get you all over the metro area easily. Great, proactive police force and responsive city government


You might also look for older rentals in parkview south which is an older neighborhood. And there are some other older neighborhood near that one that are also in safe areas. That area is along Burke between Fairmont Parkway and Genoa Red Bluff. The better schools however will be the ones along fairmont and space center and look for the ones that are zoned to deer park schools.

Your biggest safety concern will be the air you breathe in that area.
