I know this is a lot so if you know anything about any of these areas I would greatly appriciate it. Also what is traffic like commuting to the medical center? I don't mind traffic in dallas we have that sit still kind of traffic but just want a headsup.


i lived at westchase ranch apts. in 77077

Its not a terrible area. Most of the apts you picked though are large low rent apartments. Which means that regardless of the area around them, its going to attract higher than normal trouble.
Westchase ranch was hella cheap. And relatively convenient. Anything near westheimer, and you have your choice of multiple walmarts/targets/grocery stores/billions of restaurants to choose from within a mile or two. It also means you have to deal with the added traffic and issues that come with a dense population area.


Why are you looking in the far west if you are going to medical center, if you dont mind my asking. You are probably better off just south of the medical center. Try looking in the binz area, or just south in pearland. Same distance commute, but nicer areas.

Why do people on here recommend Eastwood as a good place to live if it's also the most dangerous? Isn't Eastwood (77023) considered south east?

I wanted to stay close to I-10 since ill be going to san antonio a lot and also my kids daycare is in the southwest side..... I don't mind the commute I'm from dallas and we have horrible traffic. Is pearland closer to the water?? I don't want to be to colse due to hurricanes. I will look into the binz area. Thank you.I found some houses and duplexes in my budget can you tell me anything about these areas: 77083 mission bend? 77086 greenyard dr? 77082 ashford meadow?

Don't let hurricanes play a huge factor. Houston is a target for hurricanes, the severity also depends on if you are on the wet side, how many tornados spin off, etc. I lived in Kingwood (way north east, outside the beltway) when Ike came through... we felt the hurricane & were without power for a few weeks because so many trees were down. I think Spring & Cypress were too for the same reason. Of course Galveston gets it the worse, but the whole city feels it. You might want to check out the TSARP flood plain map if you're concerned about flooding TSARP.org

Because people who know nothing about areas regularly comment like they do.

In the grand scheme of things, Eastwood isn't all that bad. There are probably 20 neighborhoods I would choose Eastwood over. Gulfton, Sunnyside, and Kashmere Gardens, just to name a few. Eastwood has it's fair share of crime, but it's nothing to write home about.

That was a first for me.
Hey, I grew up in those apartments. We had to move about two years ago because it got really crazy. I was walking out the door for school one morning and there was a dead body in my parking lot. I did hear shots the night before, it was right outside my bedroom window. Gunshots almost every night and people getting killed. Anyways, it got so crazy we had to leave and i was there since I was born. I never really felt unsafe though but i guess thats because I had been there all my life. I would walk home from cattails at like midnight from my friends house, and I'm a female. But I never would've recommended it for someone who wasn't from there. I passed by greenhouse recently and they got new management and it is much much better, but i dont know about the surrounding areas though. They fixed it up, it's all pretty now, and they changed the name.
