Spotted: Houston’s next trendy neighborhood
When searching for a home on a budget, you’ll often find great deals on the edge of “up-and-coming” neighborhoods throughout Houston. But how do you tell if a neighborhood is headed up? Or, if it’s on its way down?
Of course, the first consideration might be financial: Are the home prices going up but still affordable? Are the taxes reasonable but enough to support great infrastructure and schools? Are there places to shop for essentials like groceries?
More than the financial considerations, however, you need to be clear about the neighborhood’s livability … that is, does it offer the quality of life you’re looking for? Will you enjoy living there? Can your family connect with the neighborhood and the people living there?
Signs of potential
There are several signs to look for in a neighborhood that point to its becoming the next hot area.
