@ Cindy...

Don't know of any way to change the location once posted. Just repost.

The link below gives a lot of detailed stats (often about 16 pages) for most cities and towns. Some information is a bitt dated but still is very useful.

www.city-data.com

www.zipskinny is also supposed to be a good general info site for specific areas.

There are a lot more local websites once a buyer has narrowed the search some. But of course, there would be way too many to list here!

SoCal - can you flag me?? I think Zillow can move it.

First time I've ever flagged on request, but it's been done. I know they can move to a different forum/topic, not sure about location.

The basic sites are good enough, you should just repost it.

Policy Map is another excellent resource for neighborhood demographic information. Registration is required, but they have both free and pay services.

I'd also like to suggest Local Forums, a Google seach will turn up Local Forums with discussion about the Community by people who live there for most communities..

A lot can often be learned about local issues ect. by reading through their comments and often you can get responses from just regular folk who live there to questions you may have

If you really want to know what is going on in a specific subdivision, you can go to one of their homeowner association meetings. You'd be surprised what you can learn there!

Cindy, those are great links. I hope you consider reposting this in a few days in Houston. That way your local buyers will be sure to see it. Policy Map is a great site and I think city-data is also helpful.
