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.

Keller Pest Control answered:
You are all wrong in your answer. While its important to get it resolved as soon as possible. Its more important to not be responsible for what could be as much as 1000.00 to 4000.00 cost. Also if not done correctly they will not be eliminated and can easily travel from one apartment to another. Contact your landlord in writing and date the certified letter, require signature from him. Talk to the other tenants to find out who else has them. Getting resolution quickly is not the best answer. Getting it done right and a professional can usually determine how long they have been there based on amount and size of Bed Bugs. It will be important to know how long you have been in the apartment More times than not the landlord will be liable for treatment and possibly damages. Contact a bed bug attorney and get a second opinion from a reputable pest control operator Make sure its a company that deals with bed bugs regularly. Do not use the landlords pest service for the second opinion and inspection You must allow his company to inspect but remember they are working for the landlord not you. Check the laws in your state and contact Government housing resources. You need to be aware if you live in an apartment they can be coming from next door. Its critical to determine the source of the infestation Be quick but don't be in a hurry to get it done. ... more

No. Not in my opinion. Clear Creek ISD (Southeast of the city), Friendswood ISD (Also Southeast) are probably the best.

Mark McNitt answered:
The US Census can help you by zip codes with many different searches such as incomes, ages, education levels, number of singles, religion and more. Realtors do not keep this information but also suggest looking at the demographics of the local elementary school, often located inside or next to a neighborhood.

Sally Grenier answered:
Those types of listings don't exist anymore. It's a myth. If you're interested in buying a home, you can contact any local REALTOR and they can show you ANY available property that's listed in the MLS. (FYI -- this site does NOT have the most up to date listings). The local MLS (and your Realtor) is the best source for that info. ... more

Susie Kay answered:
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!
