The OP will find everything very similar to the Kingwood layout, just the terrain will be different.

People will say Burb X is $$$$, when in fact homes can be bought for under 100k. All it takes is a real estate search engine.
Other cities don't have real estate search engines as good as Moderator cut: can only cite realtor.com
If you are referring to my post (which I assume you are), then say so. No where in my post did I say any particular suburb was "unattainable".

Given that I have no idea what the OP's budget is, I was giving generalities. In general, South Lake is expensive. We all know how "affordable" River Oaks or West U. is. Come on! I'm sure I could find a house in River Oaks for $100k - but it's probably not one that I would want to live in. Or it would cost me $100k to buy, and then about $400,000 to tear down and rebuild something I wanted.

If what you are saying is actually true and all suburbs have something for every budget - then I guess you must laugh when a poster honestly asks for recommendations in x or y neighborhoods for z amount of dollars, and people on this forum state (honestly) that they won't find much for that price range in those particular neighborhoods.

All Master Planned Communities have something that cater to all budgets. And we were talking the suburbs, not city neighborhoods. Why would I laugh?

When it's asked about city neighborhoods, just about everyone on this forum will gently try to guide people to something that might work within their budget and schooling needs.If they want new, we all say you're going to have to go to the burbs.

Um, no they don't. The cheapest house on the market in Fall Creek is $135k, $120k in Summerwood. So if my budget is $100k, then neither of these communities is for me. There are other communities around me that would certainly cater to my budget. But don't assume all master planned communities cater to all budgets. They have a wide range of budgets they cater to for sure, but not everyone can fit into them.

But this discussion is not really helping the OP in any way. They need to give us some more information as to where they will be working, what kind of budget they have, and preferences on amenities, shopping, etc so that better suggestions can be given.
