Start pest control immediately! There are many places that specialize in bed bugs. You might be able to work out a compromise with your landlord, but you shouldn't delay getting the help you need. Bed bugs can be hard to get rid of, and the blow to your health is serious. Good luck with everything. http://goevergreenpest.com/bed-bugs/... more
Great Schools all are either new or remodeled in the last few years with some of the best sports facilities anywhere and is a great little town to live. It is growing and you are starting to see more conveniences in the area with many more to come. several new subdivisions and more businesses are on there way. Not far from the Super HEB in Leander and with the additions of Ronald Reagan and 183A over the years Liberty Hill is a easy commute to Austin RR,GT,and cedar park as well as the Hill country.I would highly recommend Liberty Hill. I have been selling Real Estate in Liberty Hill for almost 13 yrs.... more
San Antonio is a ever growing market with new jobs that come up every day. It is all a question of the degree that you have earned and the field you are wanting to go into. If you do not know, would suggest taking a placement test that most colleges offer for free to their students. Some companies out there would approve you taken those tests as it shows you would be a right fit for the field.... more

Lots depends on your price range #1....then #2 what commute you can stand. Maybe what hours of travel you have....then what kind of neighborhood you like. Older homes more unique or standardized organized neighborhoods with new or newer homes.

It's about 10 miles to Sherman, and there are plenty of good restaurants, such as City Limits, Tuscan Slice, Red Lobster, Olive Garden, Fulbelli's, College Street Diner, La Mesa, Kathleen's Kitchen, Carol's Red Apron, Rib Crib, Texas Roadhouse, Cheddar's, Chili's, El Chico, Panera and McAlister's, to name a few. Town Center has shopping and a movie house. There's a new batting cage and golf analyzer inside the Midway Mall next to Burlington. I have driven to Dallas, but usually leave at 9 a.m. to avoid rush hour. It usually takes me about an hour at that time. McKinney has a great downtown for restaurants, shopping, antiquing, music and festivals and its about 25 miles from Howe. Howe is actually pretty centrally located if you need to go to Dallas and also want to take part of all the activities at Lake Texoma and the Sherman area.... more
Bill, that's a great question. No one thinks of Dallas and humidity in the same context. However, the humidity is mild compared to Houston or other more southern Texas cities. The thing is it can to 100 degrees and stay that way for a couple of weeks at a time. I live in Longview Texas. East on I20 from Dallas. We share mostly the same weather as Dallas. Since I live on a Lake it may seem just a bit more humid. Of course, I'm originally from New Orleans and that humidity will curl your hair, LOL.
Call me you want to consider a move to Longview or east Texas. It's a great place to raise a family, start a business or retire

I agree with Daniel. Mid-sized town. Has all the usual shopping - Walmart, Target, Kroger, Albertson's, TJ Maxx, Bed, Bath & Beyond, etc. Also all the usual restaurants - Olive Garden, Red Lobster, Cheddar's, Chili's, Applebee's, Starbucks, fast food, etc., along with some locally owned places scattered about. As far as fun - there's a ceramic painting place, a few restaurant's with a bit of night life, like Cellarman's, which is a local college hangout on Texoma Parkway. The pool at Fairview is pretty good and mostly a kid place, but there's a place to swim laps. Midway mall sucks. Most people go there for Dillard's, AE, The Buckle and stuff, but that's pretty much it. Lake Texoma is fun for camping and cruising around in a boat - has lots of trails and boat launches. Sherman is just like everywhere else around here. People go out to eat and shop for something to do, so all those places are busy Friday though the weekend. A lot of folks come in from the surrounding semi-rural and rural locations including from OK to do just that on the weekends. It's more laid back and casual (country) here than it is in the suburbs like McKinney, Allen, Plano, Frisco, etc. If you want a good mall that's the closest in proximity to the area, most people drive to Stonebriar in Frisco. Without traffic slowdowns Dallas is about an hour south of Sherman straight down 75.... more
Paadena is a very beautiful place. You have downtown with almost all sorts of world cusine available. Then you have the very green south pasadena. LA downtown is 10 miles or so, LA zoo is very near. Love the Rose Parade there. Evenings are beautiful, awalk in the South madison ave, Los robles is a beutiful experience. Lake avenue is full of life. Had my car jacked while parked inside, but most of times I felt safe and walked outside late. Excellent place to hangout on weekends.... more
Avoid Oak Run. The stench, trash and noise from SH46 is unbearable. The traffic in the neighborhood is out of control. The developers with the help of city council will eventually ruin this neighborhood by relaxing zoning standards next to the neighborhood (or anywhere else in this city where they can make money). They almost got away with it last summer. An intense campaign to stop a proposed zoning change next to Oak Run left one last city council member supporting the change on the final vote. That offical was a realtor, and a relative of a zoning board member. You will not be well supported as a private homeowner in this city. Ask a lot of questions about the history (particularly flooding) and future development plans in or near any property you consider here. An example: as you approach the entrance to the neighborhood, just consider the Oak Run resident who bought a 250K house only to see developers put in a Taco Bell adjacent to his property.... more
