Today my daughter and I ventured into Fieldstone just because we had not been beyond Kroger. We got to Fieldstone (off of Grand Pkwy. and Mason Rd.) decided to tour the model homes by Meritage & Brighton Homes. My husband and I plan to purchase a home hopefully summer of 2013 and hope they are still building as I really liked the subdivision. We also liked the fact that its zoned to our son's high school.

Does anyone have any new updates on Fieldstone? I did a search on the forum and most of the information is from 2009. I'd love to get some feedback of those that currently reside there OR on any of the two builders.

Summer of 2013? That is an eternity in new home sales. The whole universe can change by then.

Brighton doesn't impress me, very uninteresting and boxy, but not sure what your budget is. They are cheaper than a lot of other builders like Perry, Trendmaker, etc. from what I remember. Don't know much about Meritage. Also, anyone looking over in that Fieldstone and Longmeadow Farms area, I'd suggest to also look at Aliana because it's a little better located (closer to Sugar Land), even with its slow start just seems nicer/better potential, and sections south of West Belfort are zoned to an exemplary elementary school.

New homes are better than older homes in terms of energy efficinecies.

Looking today for a home purchase in 2013 is kinda crazy, as everything changes.

I am expecting a massive difference in the total home market by 2013.

Houston added around 100k+ jobs in 2011 and even more than that is expected in 2012....

Houston is the #1 market in the nation and that means we are going to bump upward.

Me and my wife are in the process of building/buying our first home. We really liked some of the Brighton and Meritage homes in the neighborhood but our budget would only allow us to get homes on 45' lots. That was the main deal breaker for us since we have two dogs that need some yard space.

My wife and I just closed on a home in Fieldstone in the 70' section. We looked at Aliana and decided it was overpriced and a little too close to Alief. I think the location of Fieldstone is a great one and they are building up the area. Again, go with what you can afford and you feel comfortable with.

The development in Fieldstone was originally a Kimball Hill Homes development and was sold to another investor back in 2008-2009. The communitty is great, since it is didvided into 4 section with diffrent price points and lot sizes. The development will be home to about to 1,400 residents and in my opinion is laid out very nicely. Fieldstone may still be selling well into the mid of 2013 based on open lots, but that can change, due to the influx of relocation buyers moving to Houston.
