NW Houston (Cypress / Willowbrook)

Hi all,

Trying this again as my first post got removed.

Just went under contract five days ago on my first ever buy and hold rental property. 3 bed 2 bath single family rental in the Cypress / Willowbrook area.

Does anyone have any familiarity or thoughts about that area? General trends you’ve noticed?

Does anyone have recommendations on how to source good contractors for vinyl or laminate flooring installation? All of the carpets need to be replaced.

Hi Andrew,

I'm a newbie and have not purchased any rentals as of yet. Congratulations on your first. 

I do work in that area, though. I think it is a great location for a rental property. The area has grown and has accessibility to everything (shopping, great schools and hospitals). Plus, it is driving distance to Houston and The Woodlands. 

Just use caution. There was a lot of flooding in this area with Harvey. I apologize, I do not know of any contractors. 

Best of luck to you,

Susan

I am a contractor in the Houston area, all the way to Galveston and college station. And everywhere in between. I am part owner with my father, I have 8 years experience as my dad has 42+ years experience. We are a father and son business which I have learned so much from him and hope to learn and expand the business more after my dad leaves. God bless and call me if any investor or consumer is needing any type work. We provide a wide range of work. Hire one man for the entire job. 

God bless, Happy New Year!

@Andrew Shen I used to have homes in Cypress and Katy. One of my properties was over in a nice neighborhood east of 249, north of the Beltway. I’m pretty familiar with the area. I have a good source for flooring...picking up a pallet of vinyl plank on Monday as a matter of fact. PM me if you want more info.

@Joe Guzman we should talk if you go to BCS. I have a multi-family property there and may have some upcoming work.

I live not far away and I have a local guy that does exactly that.  He has done my own home and my flip, and he's worked for another guy here on BP.  I'll reach out and connect, and if you are interested, I'll pass along his details.
