Almost every client I talk with who is relocating to Spring Texas asks me which neighborhoods should I stay away from or which are the most family friendly but due to Fair Housing Laws I can’t answer those questions. I can only point you to websites that you can use to develop your own opinions.
An excellent resource that I discovered recently is provided by the New York Times. It overlays the 2010 census data onto Google Maps. The data is broken down by state, county, and census tract. I particularly like the census tract data because it gives you a closer look than just data for Spring Texas. You can view maps on home values, monthly rent, same sex couples, racial and ethnic distribution, income and education levels. Here’s the link to the map so you can dig deeper into the 2010 Census data yourself.
Over the last 10 years, we have experienced significant real estate development in several Census tracts in Spring Texas.

It was my first time going through the new home building process so it helped make the meeting way less stressful. Jill has been there for me every step of the process even after the closing! I truly have never met a more passionate, hard working individual! I would HIGHLY recommend! read less
