Friends,
I will be relocating to Houston soon. I am new to the area. I would really appreciate if you can give your inputs on good neighborhoods, cost of living, etc.

Thanks,

Welcome to H city! SugarLand and Katy have very good neighborhoods with lots of desis. A lot depends upon where your office located. Cost of living is in Houston is low compared to LA, NY. Homes are "affordable". But property taxes are high (average is above 3%). Food, gas and misc. services are cheap. Insurance and utility costs are high though. Let me know if you have any specific questions.

We moved to Houston (Sugar Land) last year from NJ. Liked this place a lot. I liked Sugar Land as anything you need is at stone's throw distance. Didn't contemplate other suburbs as this was the closest to our work place.

Hello,

Welcome to Houston! There are many options for living ... though traditionally Indians have preferred Sugarland, other neighborhoods (e.g. Pearland, Katy) are nice as well ... my recommendation would be to rent an apartment in Riveroaks area first (very nice neighborhood) while you look around ...

Anyone from Chicago near downtown? Not Napreville or Aurora. We are moving from (bay area) Santa Clara to Chicago. Office is in Downtown. Looking for a place closest to download. We are a family with small (1.5 year old) kid.

Please suggest.
