Moving to Houston? Here's Where You Should Consider Living.

Uprooting your life and moving to an unfamiliar area has to be one of the scariest, most daunting things to do (at least in my opinion). However, it can also be the most rewarding experience. I mean, think about it, NEW PLACES, NEW PEOPLE, NEW THINGS and NEW RESTAURANTS. It 's all so exciting!


BUT before you pack up the UHAUL, you need to do your research, especially if you are considering relocating to Houston. Houston is typically more expensive to live in than most other cities in Texas. However, the cost of living is still lower than other major cities, like Los Angeles or New York City. Also, Houston is very BIG, and there are countless neighborhoods to choose from. And I understand that it can be difficult to find the perfect place, when you've only been to Houston for vacation. BUT, that's what you have me for! In this blog post, we'll discuss everything you need to know about renting in Houston.
