If your speaking of Champions Park along Cutten Road between FM 1960 and Cypresswood in NW Houston...that is a BIG no!
The neighborhood has a lot of strong activity. 24 active/pendings and 28 solds over the last 6 months. The apartments your referencing are a bit on the luxury side. Not sure what "low income" your speaking of? Most communites in the area showed a leveling of values in 2011 and now show slight increases in 2012.
I sold a home on Mickwayne in July and it took 2 weeks to get a contract and sold within 95% of list price. If you want to research a community, let me know where and I can go back 10 years to show you the trends. We have the real "sold" data that no other web sites show. Let us know if we can help.
