I've found the city-data forum for Houston very helpful in finding out about neighborhoods. Agents really want to help, but there is a lot they can't say due to Federal Fair Housing Law. People on the street can tell you about commutes, low income, school reputations etc.

The commutes in Houston are not terrible even form Katy, but every hour you spend is gas and time you never get back. Also, some of the areas outside the beltline regularly flood so that is something to consider too. You have to look at the overall quality of life and decide if you are getting good bang for your buck with the condo fees. 

Take a look at your local craigslist to see what you could rent each property for. Houston can be a boom and bust town so often new people move in and out cyclically to follow the economy. If you cover your bases by looking at rents, that might help you decide which is a better value. I loved Houston and still get a mad craving for yummy TX BBQ.

Are you shopping for a home before you shop for a mortgage? It may seems backwards to shop for a Mortgage before you shop for a home, but there are several reason for doing this. The primary reason to shop for you mortgage 1st, it lets you the borrower knows exactly how much is a lender willing to lend to you based on your income, credit and debt to income ratio. Afterall the only person in a real estate transaction who can approve or deny you access to capital is the Lender and sellers and Realtor alike wants to know that they are not wasting time running around with a person who cannot buy a home. [Promotion removed by Zillow moderator.
