Good luck - call if I can help.
77493 covers most of Old Town Katy and North into a largely rural area. As to is it a safe area, call the Katy Police Department and check it out. As has been said Realtors are not allowed to answer such questions as to the safty, that liability thing that we all have to worry about, if we say it's safe and something happens you can come back on us, if we say it's not safe well that can be considered steering and that is against the Law so our hands are tied when it comes to questions like that.
I can say that Old Town Katy is like stepping back in time and I love it there, I owned and operated a shop for 5 years right in the heart of town and it was an amazing place to work, time moves much slower and people used to come into my place and sit and talk for hours, where can you find that today?
I suggest you take a trip to down town and check out the stores and cafes see for yourself, I would be surprised if you didn't enjoy the experience, it's not very big and it sure aint fancy but it feels good to walk the sidewalk and maybe sit and have a snowcone under the big shade tree.
