Laura, As the owner of the house (which is NOT for sale,, I would say the listing is wrong.Perhaps a listing on HAR for $152397-tax records from at least 5 years back is more accurate.I have owned the house since 1971. As I collect cars I had the 4 car garage workshop custom made in 1977.This gave me another bedroom-440 squae feet.The house has good curb appeal with fresh Masonite siding and paint as well as new cedar fencing.The house is adapted for its inviroment as it has full iron burglar bars and steel plated doors.-=OWNER ... more

Is it illegal you inform individuals about real estate? It's real estate advice. Yes, the land lord can increase the rent. He/she approved the original two roommates. Carefully read your contract. If you need assistance then yes, call an attorney.

From the information you provide, it appears as if you're an investor looking to turn homes quickly after renovation. My wife/working partner and I work with several such firms. Sharpstown has many "pockets" of housing. As of the moment, there are 23 properties on the market, ranging in price from $92,000 to $220,000. Over the past year, 164 homes have sold, from the $40's to the $200's. As is the case with much of Houston, it's a growing area, and prices reflect this.

As you can see, there would be no benefit to averaging the DOM's for such a divergent price range. Throw in the short sales and foreclosures, and the number becomes even more skewed.

I'd like the opportunity to discuss matters with you further. There are many investor-friendly locations, some of which are more preferable than others. Sharpstown, for example, doesn't have the best school zoning, while some adjacent areas are attractive to families because of the better educational situation. They could prove to be better investments for you overall.

Please get in touch with me via phone or e-mail below. I'm certain we can help. We look forward to hearing from you.

Regards ...

Al's right, in Houston all bets are off with flooding esp during tropical storms.
I always find this website useful for folks wanting to see the flood zones :

I have always found that surrounding home owners are usually happy to tell you all about their neighborhood and if there are drainage problems.

Your insurance agent will always tell you that even if you are not required to have flood insurance, it is worth its weight in gold if it does flood since standard insurance will not cover rising water .

Good luck in your home search !

David Tansey answered:
Whenever you purchase a condo you should receive a "Resale Certificate" from the home owner’s assoc. or the management company. It spells out the details of the fees (how much they are, what they cover, and the financial status of the HOA. Especially when buying a condo you want to know if the association has enough money to cover the liabilities of the community. If they don’t, you can end up with a special assessments or increases in the fees to cover issues that come up while you own the property. ... more

TCP Real Estate answered:
I've seen a wide range of "TLC" needed when a house has that in remarks. However, one thing is certain, the house will need work! And usually more than some easy cosmetics.

Homes marked as needing some TLC are also priced under market and can be a great value. It just depends on how much work you are willing to do.
