Afternoon everyone

Long time reader, born and raised Greater Houstonian, and first time poster (Be Kind). I am weighing the idea of becoming a first time homeowner and I was wondering if I could solicit ideas about hidden neighborhoods or areas that I have not considered.

Inner Loop (or just about anywhere close is too rich for my blood. I enjoy being able to eat and sleep at night.

late 20's
Commutes downtown for work but will travel out of town during the week for 75% of the year.
Girlfriend (who attends school in another state) may reside with me later in the summer. Depends on UH law school transfer is successful. Desires to keep her commute to 30 mins or less.

Wish List
Townhome or Single family with small yard
2-3 bedrooms
built in the year 2000 or later.

Hoping to luck out on a property that 10 other individuals or couples are not bidding on at the same time as has been the case for the few I have put offers on. (wishful thinking).

Thanks for the help all.

Robindell or pocket neighborhoods in the sharpstown area for a single family home. Maybe be out of your price range now but maybe not. Look for as close to westbury/bellaire/meyerland as possible as opposed to sharpstown high/fondren southw est

Im amazed at what old 3rd ward homeowners are doing. Literally some blocks are smaller river oaks. 3rd ward closer to 288 and med center/museum district than 59

You demand for a new house will kill your budget or location desire. My 60yr old house is a gem
