This question should be addressed to the Houston Police Dept. Gang Unit. Realtors don't keep track of such information.

go to the bottom of the Trulia listing and there is a map with tabs on it, click the Crimes tab and it shows a map.

Check out Crimespot.com or Houston police dept's website, too.

Houston is so big and diverse that even though we are not in the top 10 for crime in the country,

see http://money.cnn.com/gallery/real_estate/2013/01/23/dangerous-cities/?fb_action_ids=4040295215679&fb_action_types=og.recommends&fb_source=aggregation&fb_aggregation_id=288381481237582

it is still best to check with the locals, drive thru the neighborhood at different times of the week or day to see how the neighbors take care of their property, how the traffic is, and just the general vibe of the neighborhood.

Good luck, and if you need a Realtor, check out my website and send me a messege.

Absolutely not, it makes the buyer uncomfortable. That is the last sensation you want some to have when they are in your home considering a purchase.

May or may not. I would suggest you speak with a loan officer or a bank. They can pull your credit report and look at your averall picture. It is also important that if you do pay off any account that you get written approval that the account has been paid
(0 balance )and that they will take it off the credit report.

Hope this will help you.
Feel free to contact me if you need assistant.

Delia,

If the foreclosure is from a bank, they might finance it. Typically a home in poor shape will not pass FHA/VA inspections for safety. Most lenders will not work with you as the home might not pass their inspections for appraisal purposes.

I would bet they are looking for a cash sale. If it has been sitting there awhile, give them a cash offer...even if it is very small. You never know what they might take.

Trulia,

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.

This property is not listed anywhere. You can look up the address on HCAD.org, and that should give you some information on the owner.

Mark McNitt answered:
These appear to be manufactured homes. Similar to "mobile", but things can be added like garages. There are more traditional single family homes with concrete foundations in the general area. You might want to make sure your search specifies a single family home and also include Humble ISD, a good school district in the area.
