Whether you are just coming to visit or you have made your home in Spring TX, a place you will want to discover is Mercer Arboretum & Botanic Gardens. It is located between 1960 and Cypresswood and Aldine Westfield a short 10 minute drive off of I45. I discovered the Mercer Arboretum a couple of years ago.

Houston TX and its surrounding areas including Spring TX have a no zoning ordinance. Zoning is when a community defines the type of real estate that may exist whether that be single family residential, multi-family residential, or commercial. No zoning ordinances allow the market to determine the type of real estate. In Spring TX, we still have ample vacant land available just waiting to be purchased by a developer to create a new subdivision or a new strip mall. During your decision to purchase a single family home in Spring TX you need to pay careful attention to your surroundings. The unknown will negatively impact the resale value of your home. Sometimes its impact will be as much as heavy street noise, commercial building, cell phone towers, water plants, and apartment buildings. T...

  I often get request asking to be set up for home searches for subdivisions that do not have homeowner's associations.  Since we don't have zoning in the Houston area when there are also no deed restrictions you get a little bit of everything.  I decided to take some pictures in a subdivision here in Spring that is unrestricted.  These pictures were taken in Mossy Oaks and are in the order that I saw the homes.  This is a small subdivision and does not have a big turnover.  There is only one home presently on the market and the asking price is $149,000.  In the past year there have been 4 sales and they have ranged in price from $110,000 to $209,000.  This is a perfect place for people who want to start a business in their home or just don't want to be bothered by having to deal with h...
