Agreed ... Without knowing your budget, status as single or married, I would suggest looking in and around the Heights, Sawyer Heights, Uptown, Memorial Park and Mid-Town for a place to live.
These would be the areas between downtown and loop 610 on the west side north of Westheimer and south of the 610 loop on the north side.
Great dining in that area, plenty of stuff to do, up and coming neighborhoods with excellent property vaules (refering the the Heights specifically here) and centrally located. Leases are very competative I'd offer however ... act fast if you find something you can afford and LIKE.
