Don Groff answered:
Good question. I'm not sure you can get a totally accurate number because homes that people rent out themselves would not really ever show up anywhere that I can think of. Any source will not not be able to give you a totally accurate number I would think.

You can set up a specific search in the MLS for past lease sales in a specific neighborhood or community pretty easily and that will give you an idea of what you are looking for I would think. I would think you could add say 15 to 20% to those numbers to account for people who listed their homes themselves and did not use an agent or the MLS.

Hope this helps.

It does not hurt it, that is for sure. Your own reports show us the #1 real estate market in the entire country!!

There is plenty of "zoning" in the regards to deed restrictions within subdivisions and master planned communities and there are smaller cities within the great Houston metro area (Bellaire, Jersey Village, Sugar Land) that have their own zoning laws.

Most buyers understand if they purchase in an area, typically inside the 610 Loop, that feature residential homes side by side to commercial interest such as a dentist or attorney office located inside a home or a small warehouse that they need to do a bit more investigating before buying. Larger issues are typically when a builder comes in and knocks down a small, older home and uses the large lot to put up new town homes next to the existing older homes. Still residential, but not the same look as the rest of the area. Deed restrictions stop this from happening in the suburbs, but nothing to restrict it inside the city.

What would you like to know about the Heights? The Heights is in the city close to downtown. It is a very eclectic neighborhood with a mixture of homes and town homes. The link you sent is for Clear Lake which is a suburb of Houston. You get more for your money in the suburbs. It just depends on your lifestyle. If I can help you find a home, please contact me.

Thank you,
Debbie Strudler

Melissa ...

This property was just sold on 11/30/12. It isn't on the market. I have no idea why Trulia shows such listings, other than for those following home sales. If you'd like to search for a home to lease, please get back to me with the following information:

Area(s) of preference
Number of bedrooms/bathrooms, square footage
Are there any pets?
Does anyone smoke?
Are there any credit issues?

I'll be glad to help. As a tenant, there is no cost to you for my services. I look forward to hearing from you.

Regards ...

No. I personally would not purchase a home in any new unestablished neighborhood because there are too many unknowns concerning future values. It depends on what kind of people end up moving in the neighborhood. It depends on how the neighborhood is kept up with. It depends on how many homes end up in forecloure. It depends on whether the schools currently zoned to the neighborhood improves or deteriates. It depends on whether the crime rate continues to be average, decreases or increases. It depdends on what other construction ends up next to the neighborhood. The list goes on.

If you are concerned with future property values, then it's best to invest in a well established neighborhood, There are no guarantees when it comes to home buying, but your chances are better in a well established neighborhood, However, just like any other investment, as the risk taker, only you can decide what kind of risks you are willing to take.
