Does anyone know much about the Northern Hills subdivision? I have noticed a lot of homes for sale in the area and wanted to know why. I found one I really like, but if someone knows something I dont, I would love some input.

Thank you!

i live in northern hills, i have seen allot of homes for sale as well. Most a are foreclosures IM guessing. The area is good, but in decline. Over the last few years i have noticed more and more of a um, certain class, of people moving in. i dont mean race here, i mean lone star card, welfare types and the criminal type.

There are some deals to be had, and if you have found one you like go for it. for the money its still a good place to buy.

How long ago was it incorparated into the city?

Do you think that change in the tax rate given the acreage might have something to do with those trying to sell???

Northern Hills is pretty old isn't it? It was probably annexed in the 60's. I imagine what's happening is the first and maybe second set of homeowners are dying off. It happens alot in older neighborhoods, look at Alamo Heights, or Northwood for example.

I don't think it has been that long...I am thinking about 5 yrs at the most.

We have friends living in there and they are getting screwed with city taxes...almost $1K per month now due to the acreage of the place...I think that is a fairly "new" issue that has only been a few tax seasons old.

Could be wrong, but seem to remember a conversation about that not so long ago.

Thank you all so much. Mtdave2... you live there. Could you tell me if you have any foundation issues or if your taxes are skyrocketing? I just want to make sure if I purchase the house that Im not suckered in to paying $12,000 in taxes a year and/or foundation repairs.

Thank you again!
