Hi Kimberly,

I have created a custom search for you, with the following criteria I got from your question;

- Rental Homes only
- 3 or 4 bedrooms
- Max price = $900/month
- Near to good schools
- Situated around Tomball, TX as far out as Magnolia, TX and Cypress, TX.

Here is what I have found:

The green box represents the areas that you specified, the green pins are 9+ rated schools (according to and the blue markers represent properties that fit your search.

There are two properties priced at $900/month and $771/month towards the southeastern corner of your preferred area. I'd recommend that you investigate those properties and contact an agent to help you with your very specific home search.

I wish you the very best of luck and hope you find your new home soon.

Kindest regards,

Community Manager

You can check the county tax records to verify the owner of record on a property thought this still doesn't mean the person you're dealing with is that person. You can have the lease reviewed by an attorney.

If you are renting and the owner or property manager hasn't personally met you at the property to show it to you but has requested you mail them the money and they'll mail the keys walk away as fast as you can, you're being scammed.

Don Tepper answered:
It doesn't matter. That's irrelevant.

You lease the house based on what the comps in your neighborhood rent for. If you price it higher than that (to cover more of the expenses, or to get a larger return on investment), it won't rent. It's that simple. And, obviously, you don't want to underprice it.

So: Do research. Look both on sites like Trulia (or and on sites like Craigslist to determine what similar houses in your area are renting for. Also, I kind of like That's what you can rent it for.

From that figure, you can then determine whether the monthly income will cover expenses. And if it does, what the (positive) ROI is.

But there's no average. You may have bought your home in 2000 for $100,000. Your neighbor may have bought the identical home next door for $200,000 in 2006. You and he are able to rent your homes out for the same amount. He can't get any more because he paid more.

Real investors--who go out and run the numbers before buying--do have desired minimum rates of return. It might be 5% or 10% or whatever. But that's not your situation. You've got the house. Your investment is already determined. And the amount you can get for rent, whatever that is, is pretty much set. So: Definitely work the numbers and figure out whether you'd be losing money, breaking even, or making money. (Don't forget to factor in things like vacancy--allow 8.5% of income--and maintenance--generally around 1% of the value of the house annually, though that'll vary.) But the numbers are the numbers and it's too late to work toward an "average" rate of return.

Hope that helps.

The Tomball Texas area 77375 is very popular with home buyers looking to move away from the city. The diversity and low crime rates are just a couple of reasons why buyers prefer Tomball.

The subdivision Princeton Place is zoned to Klein Schools which are highly rated by the TEA. Homebuyers with children make their home buying decision based on the School District, which makes this neighborhood very desireable.

There is still new construction being build in Princeton Place. In my opinion this area will continue to grow in the next 5 years. I would say the resale value is stable at this time. There is only one foreclosure for sale in Princeton Place. Rental values are between $1200 & 1500.

Please contact me if I can be of service in your real estate needs.

Contact the agents broker and demand a responce in writting from them. This may be the quickest and cheapest way to get the agent to do the proper thing. Then if that does not work you may have to talk to an attorney.

best of luck .. Bruce

Good Afternoon Steve;
The Real Estate Agent can perform the complete transaction as far as the contract and addenda go. Once completed, it is usually turned over to a Title Company to perform the actual closing of the transaction.
You do have the option to retain a lawyer to go over anything that is put in writing regarding the entire transaction.
