    So later 2019 year I plan to make a move to the Houston area. I am looking for information on everything from housing , realtors if you know a good one, good area to raise a family with good schools and nice homes, property tax information if your familiar with that. I know for sure my family and I do not want to be in south Houston mainly due to inclement weather situations when and if it comes. ( not even sure if this is something to be concerned about but I think of hurricane Harvey when I think of Houston area). We don’t mind living outside area like spring, Conroe, Huntsville but what do you all recommend? Thank you in advance for all the info

    Matt(Moe's Performance) lives in Conroe. He may be able to give you some information about the Conroe area and some of the other small towns north of Houston itself. There is always a nice little community called "Cut and Shoot" just north of Houston---LOL

    I live in NW Houston cypress area, we didn't flood during Harvey. My wife is a realtor and can help you with anything you need. We have both lived here all our lives and know this area very well.

    I have lived in Cypress my hole life. Born in Tomball.

    Schools - there are many fine school districts. Cy-Fair, Klien, Conroe, Humble, Perland, Clear Lake, Alvin, Fort Bend, Katy (and problem some I've missed) are all good to go.

    Taxes - Property taxes are high, State wide. A $400k house will run you in the $10k range. The good thing is $400k will by A LOT of house.

    Harvey Floods - That was an extraordinary event. If a house didn't flood in it, it likely never will.

    Huntsville is fine if you work there. I do some work for the city and it is a hour and a half drive each way. Conroe is good if you work there or Woodlands. If you are working in Houston, think Cypress or Perland. Both are at the beltway and the freeways are being redone now.

    Guys I appreciate all the info..... it looks like my move is gonna come sooner rather then later. I still plan on going the north Houston way.... spring, Conroe or other north Houston areas that I may like. But after consideration I would like to rent a house first in a nice and safe neighborhood. I would need a minimum of 3 bedrooms 4 would be perfect.

    Do you all know of any I can start looking at? Or know of someone or some places I can start looking?

    Thanks again

    I'd contact JB1"s wife and she if she can help you out. He said she was a realtor.
