I remember years ago when Greenspoint was the up and coming "The Woodlands" before there was TW.

Exxon was going to be the anchor and everybody was going to move there.

Look how that turn out.

Now to answer your question, not likely but nobody have a crystal ball either.

There are already some northern part of Sugar Land that is not as nice.

No.

A few rules though:
- Try and stay south of West Airport Blvd; north of it is outside of city limits and too close to Alief (this pertains to Sugar Land only; not Richmond / out by the Grand Pkwy)
- The neighborhoods of Tara and Riverpark aren't as good investments as others

I saw cheaper homes in the West Airport Blvd area in comparison with New Territory. Perhaps I will only look for homes on the south side of Highway 6 (after 90)

Yeah, but the traffic is getting worse and worse everyday from sugarland to Houston

The south you go the worse it is

5 years ago I remember where Costco is in Sugarland, it was like desert

Now it is all developed and moving towards Rosenberg

The further you go the worse it is in terms of traffic to Houston

I think the area south of highway 90 will be okay.

Just stay more than 3 miles way from Alief and the neighborhood should be ok

With exception to the aforementioned outlying areas that often times aren't actually Sugar Land (read - Sugar Land mailing address but actually Houston ETJ), very unlikely. In 10-15 years, as the Grand Parkway becomes the new Beltway (in terms of where you want to be in relative proximity to this thoroughfare), I foresee that Sugar Land, a mostly self-function city (not unincorporated sprawl) with zoning, a rich tax base, a touted school district, a strong police presence, and a finite amount of land available that will help prevent over-saturation of cheap retail strip centers, will be better off than other soon-to-be ex-burbs. Sugar Land will be "close" to downtown, when compared to that of Needville / Brookshire / New Waverly where the latest round of MPCs will be booming.

This is why I will always say Sugar Land will hold value better than that of the "Katy" area along I-10 between the Beltway and 99. One is in charge of its own destiny; the other, not so much.
