Joe,

I would advice to really get good information about the "crime" in the area. Briarmeadow is VERY popular so the crime your seeing doesn't seem to scare off too many buyers in that area.

There is a lot on-line, but would also recommend contacting the Houston Police Department directly. They can provide you the most current information. Keep in mind Realtors do not keep that data and it would be just "what we have heard" VS the facts. Maybe this web site can help you determine if the area is worth further investigation!

Consider, Houston is traditionally higher then national averages with crime rated at 212% of national average. I would take a look at the amenities of the home, the area is a consideration. Keep in mind this is central west close to memorial etc. You should not be seeing any higher crime rate than those for the area. Again, this is close to memorial drive, i/10 memorial city healthcare and shopping, etc. Things to keep in mind when you are looking for a home.

Joe ...

Go with your gut feeling ... it's what I advise all my buyers. You've got to love everything about the home ... including where it is. I wish you well.
