Moving to Houston?

Everything you need to know!


Plan a Visit

Visiting Houston before your move is ideal. You will be able to see a lot of the city in just three days. Central locations, like downtown and midtown, allow for easy access all around the city. If you’ve already narrowed down a few ideal neighborhoods, staying at an Airbnb is a great option to “live like a local”. Selecting a neighborhood before your big move can save a lot of time and money down the road.


Explore Neighborhoods

Whether you want an urban downtown vibe or prefer some space in the suburbs, Houston has a neighborhood to suit your needs. Here are some things to think about as you explore your new hometown and select a neighborhood:

  • Do I want to live near my workplace? How much time do I want to commute?
  • What community features are important to me (schools, parks, library, gyms)?
  • What recreational activities are nearby (ballparks, bike trails, music venues)?
  • Is parking/driving easy in this neighborhood? Is public transit readily available?

Home Search

Now that you’ve picked a few ideal neighborhoods, let’s talk about the type of home you would like. Many neighborhoods feature single-family homes, but condos and townhomes are great options too! A few things to think about when selecting a home:

  • Do I want a yard to maintain and care for?
  • Do I prefer to live in a community with added amenities but also an HOA fee?
  • Can I work on some projects to update a home, or does it need to be move-in ready?

According to the Census, about 250 people are relocating to Houston every day. Get ahead of the curve (and the real estate market). Let’s connect, so we can help you make the right move!
