Buying a home in Kolbe Farms can be challenging. Many new construction communities have non-standard contracts that are very one-sided and benefit the developer. Unsuspecting buyers can be at a disadvantage from the start.
In addition, since Houston recently issued more single-family new home construction permits than the entire state of California, some new construction quality has suffered. Buyers must get help from a great realtor to navigate the contract and inspection process.

"The Houston Property Team was simply outstanding!

We highly recommend them and could not be happier about our choice!" - Claudia O'Leary (Google Review)
