Hello all, I have been reading HAIF since I moved to Houston back in August, and I am a huge fan!! I wish all cities had something similar. I am currently renting, but I wish to buy a small house in the next 6 months or so. I have been doing some research and a lot of driving around, but I wanted some opinions on where to purchase. I probably will not stay in Houston beyond 4 years, so I am trying to find an area that will have the most appreciation, but at the same time not be an extremely transitional neighborhood where I would feel uncomfortable living (I am a single female). I don't mind a fixer-upper, and I have done quite a bit of renovating to previous properties, but the property has to be livable, since I plan to move in immediately. A 2/1 is fine but would prefer a little bit bigger house if possible (at least an extra 1/2 bath). I would like to stay under $120K and lower if it needs a lot of work. I also need to be close to the Med Center. I like Glenbrook Valley, Westbury, Robindell, and some parts of Sharpstown. I absolutely love Garden Villas!! Are there other areas that I should be considering?? Out of these areas, which one do you think will have the best resale value (with some improvements to property) in 4 years?? Oh, one other thing, I love the Mid Century Modern homes that are so abundant in Houston!! Thanks for your response!!
