Houston Calleth...


#1

Work is transferring me to Houston and I am looking for a house to rent.

What neighborhoods/areas should I look at, or which areas should I avoid?

Looking to spend between $900-1200/month for at least 3 bedrooms.

Anyone know a good realtor there?


#2

I heard there is a gigantic black dentist in the area who eats cheeseburgers while ripping out your wisdom teeth.


#3

you'll be buying this shit by the case, and thanking the gods that it was invented.


#4

BEWARE THE LOCH NESS DOCTOR!!


#5

PM DJHT. He has a friend in HOuston that's a realtor.


#6

Damn Doogie you went to school with him also. :stuck_out_tongue:

First off, where is work? Second what kind of car do you have? Wife? Kids?


#7

I'm just here to complain about my thousand dollar a month studio apartment.

carry on.


#8

I too wish to complain about the rent being high...

Places to Avoid: The Wards area,Aldine,Greens point,Spring Branch,All of East Houston (Everything on the right side of 45)Pasadena, Baytown, and Carverdale.

Nice areas to live in: Cypress,Tomball,Fairfield,Heights,Montrose,River Oaks,Kingwood,Memorial,Woodlands,Jersey Village, and Mid Town.

Clarification: Spring Branch is cool, but it definitely helps if you know some Spanish. Otherwise you'll only barely 'muddle through'. Best place to find Pupusa and Korean BBQ.


#11

Is it too damn high?


#12

I live in the spring/klein area. It's purty.


#13

All I know is you can find a 5 bedroom 2+ bath house in Houston for less a month than what you would pay for a one room apt in New York.

Houston is a great city...aside from the fucking heat.


#14

The mayor is a lesbian.

(Only thing I know about Houston)


#15

I didn't even know that. Shows how much I care about politics at this point.

It's all the same shit.


#16

Houston: So big, its suburbs are in Utah.


#17

There is no way could survive without a car at this point. I don't even see Metro buses out this far.

Honestly, if this were the 1800's, it would take 3 days and about 15 canteens of water to get to work....IF the horse could make it in the heat.


#18

Also, two horses.

At least in your case.


#19

Just haven't updated my location- I drove down to Houston.


#20

What part of town is your job in? This will make a huge difference as you do not want a long commute.
