Anyone have any area recommendations for buying a house in Houston but have regular commutes downtown? 300k max but would like a house (not a townhome/apartment).

If you are ok with an older home look in parts of spring branch, west chase or energy corridor areas

How’s the commute though? Any more than 30-45 minutes?

I’m in sugar land. And I take park and ride when I need to go into downtown. When i drive and school is in session depending when I leave it can take 45 min or longer. The earlier I leave the less time it takes but if I leave at 8 am I can’t make it by 8:30 unless I get on the express lane. but even then it can take a little longer.

I would look at Montrose, can get something for 400k but commute is minimal and flooding risk very low

Or EaDo

Most of the major suburbs have a METRO park and ride if that's an option. Otherwise, Spring Branch is a good choice. Gentrification going nicely, it went from gang related drive-bys in my teens, to 500k super skinny townhomes today....lol

It’s very discouraging to continuously receive these rejection emails. With 9 years of supply chain experience, I am not sure why I would not be able to at least get an interview for entry level roles that require no experience. Not just this one pictured but others as well. I’ve applied to maybe 60 positions since May, both mid level and “entry” and no interviews. I’ve had my resume professionally re-written twice. Not sure where the disconnect is. Anyone else going through this same thing?
