Advice needed:

Moving to area budget is up to $650,000 if we do public school. Lower if we have to do private school, kids are 5 and 10.

Here is what we are looking at:

Clearlake (Seabrook and League City): like an area to be on the water and have a boat
Friendswood - good schools seems family friendly, could afford nice house
Memorial area - good schools, doesn't seem like our budget will but you very much

I know the schools Memorial are rated really well. I'm not sure if I want to downsize to a house we can afford there. And is it mostly $1million dollar plus homes so will we be out of place - again, no judgements, but want a reality of what this area is like.

Friendswood also looks nice and good schools. My husband will be working from home and I will as well and be traveling a couple times a month.

Family area with activiites/sports for kids as well as close to shopping and gym. where would you pick?

I would say Friendswood because I know the area. It's very family friendly. Schools are good. It's affordable. You can be close to shopping and a gym if that happens to be the area you pick.

Of course, I don't really know anything about Clearlake, Seabrook, League City. They seem nice, but I haven't been in the area long enough to have explored them.

I love the Clear Lake area and the great thing about Clear Lake (in addition to great schools) is that Clear Lake is totally built out with no new available land so what you see is what you get -- you don't have to worry about what will be springing up around the corner from you in 2-3 years.
