You aren't getting any acreage at 200K...unless you want the acreage with no home on it. Unfortunately what you want is way out of your price range in the Houston Area.

The main points we're looking for are:
-Safe, non-sketchy area.
-Good economy for work, specifically housing/building.
-A balance of privacy and relative closeness to civilization.

Any advice is greatly appreciated.
This is what you need to do.

Go to har.com and search... edit the search filters... I did three three things - 50,000 sq ft minimum, $200K max price... Fort Bend County.

There were a few properties with houses on them that came up in East Bernard, Damon, Rosenberg... I'm surprised I got that many.

I would recommend Sealy, Brookshire, Pattison, Hockley areas. Rosenberg and Richmond are great options as well. I am a REALTOR® in the west Houston area so please let me know if I can help!

So you want an area good for families but you want your family to have privacy away from everything and people? I would assume you'd want a neighborhood for families to socialize but oookay....




Y'all must be from Ohio or Nebraska wanting acres for 200k.

The biggest issue I see here is the schools. It's just not possible to be zoned to good schools on 5+ acres. The you can go anywhere in HISD is way overstated. It used to be like that but much more difficult these days with the better elementaries.

East Bernard does in fact have a couple of properties in the price range and is about 30 minutes to the heart of Sugar Land, but Brazos ISD is not good. You'll have the same issue with the other small towns.

If you live in R/R you'll be within 10-15 min. of SL. Parts of those areas are nice, others are run down; it just depends where. Sugar Land offers most shopping that you'd usually need, and more. Richmond is actually the seat of the county government for that area.
