Check out the Eastwood area of the East End in SE part of town.  It's in the shadows of UH campus across freeway from UH down Cullen.  OakForest is in NW part of town, not convenient to UH [unless downtown campus].  With light rail in East End, you have more options than in the past.  Flipping & builders doing urban renewal gives the Harris & surrounding appraisal districts reason to up values, taxes increase [especially on rental property...no homestead exemptions] & insurance follows with increased costs.  I'm not being negative about urban renewal, just being honest.  After 50 yrs in the rental business, the cycles keep rolling.  What's hot today, may be cold tomorrow.  As Kenny Rogers sang "you gotta know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run".  Big decision with my grey hair & price of oil per barrell [which makes Houston tick].  I wish you well in your search.  Being native Houstonian & having had property in East End,  I'd pack a lunch & drive the East End as many rentals are not on Multiple Listing, just signs in yard [as I do].  Many think East End not safe, I never had problems in the 30 yrs I owned property there.
