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!
