Hello Folks,

I am currently overseas working for the U.S. Government. My wife and I are seriously thinking about retirement in the Spring/Woodlands, greater Houston area. Obviously I am looking for the best homes for the best prices. I do not care about the schools (no school age children) but taxes and utility costs are a factor.

I am looking for a home in the range of $250-300K. From the web sites my wife and I have been visiting that appears reachable.

I would appreciate any and all information you kind folks in that area are able to provide. Being overseas I can not drive down the road to check things out; only may rely on web sites. Thanks in advance...

There is a highrise in Champions Forest that houses more than a few retirees we know. They seem to like the safety of it, the ease of care and the location. Taxes are not as high as the in the Woodlands.

The Woodlands is a great place to retire to. Trees, beauty. Your can get a good home in your price range. Have you checked out Houston Real Estate - Houston Homes, Houston Home Value and Houston Relocation
