Houston

Houston is culturally and economically diverse in almost every aspect: people, food, jobs, arts, entertainment, shopping, and of course real estate. Whether you are relocating from out of the area, or moving from one part of Houston to another, the city has something fantastic for you! Houston is also BIG – it’s the fourth largest city in the country and the biggest in the state of Texas with a population of over 2.1 million. You’ll need some professional local Houston, TX Realtors to show you around all the best areas of Houston! Whether you are looking for Houston apts, townhouses, Houston lofts, or single family homes - Bamboo has the right place for you. Houston is growing at a record pace due in large part to the booming local economy that includes energy, healthcare, aerospace and financial services. There are nearly as many Fortune 500 companies headquartered in Houston as there are in New York City! If you are relocating for work you’ll feel right at home – the city is nicknamed “Hustle Town”, and nearly 70% of people living in Houston are not originally from there. It’s true: there is no zoning and traffic is bad. Commute time considerations will be especially important in choosing your new place. You may hear the phrase “In the Loop”, which refers to downtown and surrounding districts and neighborhoods that fall inside Highway 610 that circles the city. Living In the Loop makes Houston seem much smaller and friendlier! Popular districts packed with things to do including the best apartments in Houston include: Midtown, Montrose, Upper Kirby, Museum District and the Washington Avenue Corridor. You can also find world-class shopping and dining in The Galleria, which is just outside the Loop. Let us give you the grand tour and find the perfect place for you.

Living in Midtown Houston

Midtown Houston is a pedestrian-friendly, mixed-use urban community located in the heart of the city. Many people choose to make Midtown their home because the area offers the convenience of amenities and services at your doorstep. Midtown boasts a variety of dining establishments, pubs and lounges, retail shopping, cultural arts venues, outdoor activity, green space and more. Where is Midtown Houston? An extension of downtown, the boundaries of Midtown can loosely be defined as South of 45, West of 288, North of 59 and East of Bagby Street. The area lies between Downtown Houston and the Houston Medical Center providing easy access to both. Zip codes overlapping with Midtown include 77004 and 77006. 

Who lives in Midtown? According to the Midtown Management District Board: "The average Midtowner is between 25-40 years of age, owns a pet or two, involved in the community, gives to charity, culturally in tune with the community, healthier because they ride bikes or walk, they don't sit back and watch the action... they are the action." Midtown's prime location between downtown and the Houston Medical Center - the two largest employment centers in the area with over 200,000 jobs - makes it a great choice for those who wish to live and work in the same area.

Summer Moving Tips - Finding an apartment and moving over the summer

Summer is the busiest moving season of the year. Whether renting or buying, more families and individuals pack up their belongings and head to a new home over the June, July and August months than at any time the rest of the year. For many of us the reason we move over the summer is to match the school year cycle. Whether a family is waiting until the end of the school year, or college kids are moving between semesters, it seems that once people start the cycle of moving in the summer, it remains a habit well beyond graduation.
