Good luck. There's not a lot of realtors willing to accept vouchers. Sad but true. You try to move to a decent neighborhood for you and your family but you're frowned upon once you inform them that you have a voucher. ... more

There's no right or wrong answer to your question. Some sellers stay at home during showing but most don't, buyers feel more comfortable when sellers are not home.

I hope this helps!

Mike, did you share this information with your agent? I've worked with several builders in Katy, and usually if my client notice something while the home is in the process of being build, they discuss it with me and I will, in turn take it up with the sale rep and stay on top of the issue until it is resolved. ... more

First you need to talk to some loan officers. They will determine what you can afford. I work with many lenders. I can have them contact you, or give your their contact info, and we can get started. In the mean time I can set you up on a search so you can start making a list of homes you'd like to see. I look forward to your call.

Thank you,

I live in 77493, Old town Katy, and have lived here since 1983. Love it here. We've had a couple of things stolen out of cars parked in the driveway over the years, but nothing major on my street. There is a crime everywhere ya know and everyone has their own defintion of "safe"! I see some have suggested websites to check crime stats - and you can actually go into the Katy Police Station on Franz, just a couple of blocks east of Katyland and talked to officers there. Very nice and friendly people who will be happy to help.

Good luck - call if I can help.

There are no flyways that I am aware of. Yes there are balloons, ultralights, and small planes. This is the Katy Prairie, wide open popular area for recreational flying. Just ask the Geese....
Flooding is not a problem in the area. There have been many flood control projects completed over the last 10 years , due in part to all the new developments.
This being said, with the right amount of rain in any area there is always the possibility. Heritage park west is not in the flood plain.
