I always tell my clients that any of these web sites "demographics" come from the US Census so you might as well go to the source! FYI, the local elementary school will show demographics as well and might give you a general idea of the immediate area.

Let us know if we can assist you with you real estate needs.

I would suggest that you pick up the phone and call a lender or two. Or you can also work with a local realtor and ask the realtor for lender's referral.

Good luck!

Louise Beard answered:
WELCOME to Houston,

You will find that the Northeast side of Houston has the fastest commute into downtown on Highway 59. There are a number of neighborhoods there including Fall Creek, Atascocita, and Kingwood. These are large communities, some master planned with all the shopping, restaurants and stores you may need. Prices vary by neighborhood and community, but you can find homes priced in the low $100's up to over $1 Million.

There is also many families that love The Woodlands, which is located North on I-45. There is an abundance of activities there. The Cynthia Mitchell Pavillion is there for concerts, many restaurants, a regional shopping mall and homes priced from $100's to well over $Million.

I specialize in both of these areas. If you'd like more information on these areas, please don't hesitate to contact me or one of my team. We'd be happy to assist you.

Susie Kay answered:
The answer is yes! The more important question is how are you funding it? Are you paying cash or do you need a loan? Since you only have a work permit that means you are a non resident alien (non green card holder). Finding a lender who will give a loan to a foreigner is a little tough but possible. I would suggest that you work with a local realtor and ask the realtor if she/he knows of any lender who can work with foreigner.

Good luck!
