Living in the Spring Branch East area is a really good & safe neighborhood. New town houses are being built & few house/lands are being sold. Elderly people are moving out & new generations are coming in. SB East is located between 2 main expressways with lots of shopping centers near & entertainment centers. It's a really convenient area because crime is low, job opportunities are offered & the entertainment is so close by.

This area is pretty centrally located in Houston, TX because it sits close to two major expressways. With that being said, the quality of businesses vary by which direction you want to follow the highway. There are two major city malls within 10-15 minutes of driving, and there are some shops that are older and more original. There is a variety of shopping and services around tailored to lower, middle, and upper class citizens. It all depends on what you are looking to find.
This area used to be for elder people but as they have passed, younger couples and college student have moved here because it is a central location.
