    Hi everyone, I am new to this forum & US. I will be arriving in Houston in some months with my husband for work. So I will be searching for an apartment/house for rent in Houston. I prefer to stay in place where most Indians stay or can be found. Can someone help me where (which area) are most Indian located in Houston? Also a guideline on what to see & what to consider most necessary while considering apartment/house for rent.

    Secondly, I have 7 year old son, so what type of school are available? Which are better public/private?

    Click here for discussions in Houston dear Prithi...

    As for quick reply. - You might consider the following things

    1. Closeness to your husband's work. Houston as you would know, is a huge city. From one end to another end it takes 1.5 hrs almost..

    2. Kids School.According to the discussions that happened in "Indian Ladies in Houston" forum, Katy ( West of Houston has good schools)..If you can quickly go through the discussions we had, you will find pointers to serach for apartment. Also you will get some idea about the city. You can also PM specific members there.

    It s really nice to have new Houston friend..
    Welcome Prithi to Indusladies and to Houston forum :)

    Thank you very much for the reply as I was getting nervous with no one to reply/help. Appreciated it as a helping hand.Drowning
    Regarding my issues, my husband will be working in Fallbrook drive TX 77064, do you or someone know which place will be nearer/better from here to rent a house or apartment.
    My necessities are , good (safe) place with good school in the area with Indian community around will be an added advantage.
    Thanks once again & wait for futher reply.

    hai Priti,
    Hearty welcome to Houston...I stay exactly at the place where u mentioned..Just backside of fallbrook...IT's really nice to know that someone is coming near to my place..waiting since loooooong time for some indian friend around...

    Now about this place...The indian store is just 5min drive (less than that) ..At jones road..Wallmart and Feista are around 10 min drive from Fallbrook..And there is a public library which is around the same distace like 10 min drive..Well all there distances are with respect to Fallbrook...Coming to indian community .well i haven't found any in MY Apartment but heard that many indians stay near Louetta Rd and at Cypress too,which should be near to your husband's office..about the schools,i don't know anything about them as i don't have kids yet..sorry..can't help in that matter...about the apartments,while mine is a very good one ,decent and very safe and will be very very near to your husbands office..but u should consider that there are no indians in my apartments as of now..think of all these factors and decide..hope i have helped you in someway..
