Hello,

I am currently in the process of moving to Houston and am unfamiliar with the area.

I am a 23 year old male looking to live around other young professionals and I enjoy being out on the town.

Where are some good spots in the Houston area for someone like me?

I will work be working downtown and possibly around the surrounding area.

My budget would be to spend no more than $800 per month and that is pushing it. Thanks.

If you want to stay close to town, you'll have to look for an older apartment complex unless you can find a roommate.

There's a few places near Greenway Plaza that might fit the bill. One that I know of is on Cummins. The management isn't great, but the units are decent.

Montrose and Midtown would be your best bet.

We lived a 1 bd Midtown Heights (I-10 and Oxford St- actually in the Heights. Stupid Name for the complex) for less than $800. It's a newer big complex with lots of young professionals.

I also rented garage apartments and in smaller, renovated apartment communities in The Heights area for way less than that. Check Craigslist.

When did you live there?

They're owned by Camden now and I had a client looking there last week. The smallest floor plan was 682 sqft and they wanted $958/month. I'm sure you could get them down a bit but probably not under $800.

Montrose or Heights. you can find very cheap housing in these areas if you look. you can even find old single-family free-standing houses in good condition to rent in these areas well within your budget of $800 if you actually look (perhaps moreso in the Heights than in Montrose). plenty of decent, centrally located apartments in Montrose for less than $600.
