The house posted for lease is actually in the Chateau Forest or Woodland Forest subdivision. It's a strecth to call it "Greater Inwood", that's the greater part of the description. Inwood proper is actually east of there, which is where I live. We have a very active community including the Inwood Forest COP (IFCOP) program made up of volunteers that patrol the area and report suspicious activities to the HPD.

If you are in Inwood the high school would be Eisenhower http://www.aldine.k12.tx.us/cms/rise/main.cfm?siteID=123
which is part of the Aldine school system and has very high rating and has recently won several national awards in education. Check to see if this house is in the Aldine district and if not you may want to look for something in Inwood Forest, Inwood Pines or Inwood North subdivisions. You may pay a little more but you'll get more as well.

As an Real Estate Agent, I can not comment on whether an area is "safe" or not, none of us can. However I can point you in the right direction to get that information. Here is the url for the City of Houston Police Beat Crime stats ... http://www.houstontx.gov/police/cs/beatpages/beat_stats.htm and this link is for a website called Mylocalcrime.com ... http://www.mylocalcrime.com/#77040. Compare and make your own determinations. The nearest elementary school is right outside the subdivision the home is in. The remainder of the schools are all within a close distance (by Houston standards). If you have any other question give me a call or email me...

Thank you for your time,

Brandon Jenkins
