This is an old question and probably not worth replying to, but if anyone is currently considering Bridgestone/BS Lakes, I can tell you from 16 years of experience living on the first street in Bridgestone less than 200 yards from Bridgestone Lakes. Crime has not touched us once, even of the most minor variety. Our block had a break-in a few years a go while the residents were away, and we see a few scattered minor thefts-from-vehicles but overall it's a very safe and quiet neighborhood. The schools are excellent. Really. I have a High School Junior and his classmates are by and large very nice kids. ... more

Tim Merritt answered:
I echo Steve's comments about the Klein school district. It's one of the area's most desirable school districts and covers a large area of the NW Houston suburb of Spring. You can learn all about the district and it's Campuses at: http://www.kleinisd.net/

The main freeways your husband would likely use from Spring to IAH would be I-45, The Hardy Tollway or Beltway 8. The Grand Parkway NW >> NE sections are not complete yet but when it is open it will provide additional access to IAH and more neighborhood options for your family.

For now, based on your criteria, I suggest you search Trulia or HAR.com for these NW Houston neighborhoods, all of which are near the freeways mentioned above, and all are zoned to the Klein Independent School District:

1) Cypresswood Glen
2) Normandy Forest
3) Windrose
4) Spring Creek Lakes

I am partial to Normandy Forest because it's a small, friendly neighborhood within walking distance to an elementary, intermediate and high school. I have family in that community and they love it

Hope this is helpful and if you need more help from a resident realtor let me know.

Best regards,

TimMerritt.Realtor

Diamond Homes Top Producer answered:
That is a great question. Sorry I am just now seeing it. I have seen the highs and the low's in Alden Bridge over the years. I would say your in the $90-$100 a square prince range. If you are considering selling in the near future I would suggest a minimal amount of upgrades if your pocket book allows it. Many of my clients are looking for move-in ready homes with all the bells and whistles and are willing to pay a premium amount for them. You may lose good quality buyers if you don't have the minimum standards they are looking for.
Contact me for more info.

Wow, nobody wants to touch this one, eh?
I raised two great kids in the Woodlands. My opinion, incredible educations and most of the kids move on to college. I will say the sport programs are very competitive and one could feel a little overcome by the amount of students but you can use that in your behalf to find a great group of friends! ... more

It's my understanding that all property owners current in their community fees may use the community pools.

If you choose us as your agent to rent this or another property we will not only verify the answer, but we will rebate 1/3 of our real estate commission when it is paid to us. You can use cash rebate to help with your moving expenses, or have a wild night on the town. Yes, rebating of real estate commissions has been legal in Texas for a long time, providing it is to a principal in the transaction.

Call for details. We comply with all TREC, State and federal laws and regulations.

Hello Mr. Lopez,

Yes, You can file your Homestead for the 2013 fical year.

Property tax exemptions are available through every county in the State of Texas. There are different discounts available, including regular homestead exemptions, VA exemptions, and over-65 exemptions, among others. Most home buyers qualify for the homestead exemption, which provides a tax discount that is determined by the location of the home and your particular situation. These savings can be a significant discount on your monthly mortgage payment.

Property Tax Exemption information can be found at:

You may have to write a letter explaining the situation when you submit an application. Some landlords will allow you to rent even with an eviction if there is a good explanation.
