Best First Time Home Buyer Neighborhoods in Tomball Texas

Good day friend! This weekend I had the pleasure of taking a family of first time home buyers "out on the town"... Lol. I even vlogged it (it will go live tomorrow), so feel free to check that out and "ride shotgun" with me, as one client put it once. But this sparked the idea (my eyes were really reopened to how hard it is to be a first time home buyer right now). Most of my clients (May 2022), have taken a break from house hunting due to the increased interest rates, so I haven't been in the under $400k market for a month. And I am not lying when the real estate market can change in a blink of an eye. The under $400k market is so different in comparison to weeks, months, and years ago.

Anywho, what we are diving into today (sorry for the tangent), is a new series, and today I am featuring Tomball Texas. So I am answering the question, "What are the best first time home buyer neighborhoods or communities in Tomball Texas?"

The best first time home buyer neighborhoods in Tomball Texas...

(So I won't lie, this list was harder to make than the Spring one (there are only four houses for sale under $400k from the neighborhoods below. The affordability and availability in Tomball isn't quite there for my first time home buyers, so this list will be short and sweet, and some of these neighborhoods have high price ranges as well. Please keep in mind that there are two constants I considered when making this list: there had to be a community pool and the schools had to be A/B rated.)
