Caren , I have walked The Woodlands given out my business cards doing face to face contact. Every condo association has it fees and rules that you have to follow. Like the other agents suggested, call the local police and get an update and check out the community! And if you don't like it, check out the next condo development if what you would like is a condo. Do your search and let a real estate agent help you with that search. Maybe in the search you realize that is a buyers market and you might be able to own a house. at an affordable price.
