NW of Houston zip 77065 we lived in Oak Cliff Place. A small neighborhood built in the 1980's... an updated 3-4br house goes for 100-110k

We loved it, walking distance to a nice swimming pool and park, young families moving in, great elementary school... Millsap... where several teachers have taught there for 20 years! For a little more money, see Ravensway in Cypress... Millsap is in the front of the neighborhood. Great family neighborhood, with a 4th of July a parade, easter egg hunts, the works.

I highly advise at that price point to stick with an established neighborhood. Do not go new at that price point... low quality builders, and unknown reputations. If you are willing to live in the suburbs like Spring, Cypress, Tomball, parts of Katy (may be able to swing Williamsburg, Cimarron, West Memorial, Hickory Creek in your price range) be in affordable neighborhoods in otherwise affluent areas with top schools.

Default Pearland

I think Pearland fits very well with what you are looking for.

My suggestion with a young child would to be rent centrally for 6 months, Galleria/Uptown/Upper Kirby area, and spend the weekends figuring out where you want to be.

Each direction has a personality and a commute time commitment. Figure out which one you feel comfortable with.

$1,000 will not get you much here if you can afford 1,250 to $1500 a month you can get a nice 1700 to 2200 sqft 3-2-2

How many bedrooms? Do you have a preference about old or new homes?
I think he was interested in renting, not buying...

Well after Katrina, that place took a hit.

But some divisions are still nice to live in.
