I was really just following the parameters set by the OP. There wasn't any mention to proximity to Sugar Land in the requirements. Creekside Ranch is just a few minutes away from the development/shopping on Spring Green and FM 1463.

Note the budget maxes out at $300k and OP is looking for homes built since 1998, min 2400 sq ft and 4 bedrooms.

Slim pickings in both New Territory and Greatwood - 3 results and 2 results, respectively, as of today meet those criteria. There really isn't viable housing stock in those neighborhoods in the price range and factors noted by OP. Maybe 10 years ago, but not today.

Fair enough. I was not trying to argue with your or anyone else’s post. I did not check HAR to respond but that is interesting to know. I guess I would modify my criteria or try to scoop up one of the 5 houses in GW/NT that meet the criteria over being somewhere like kingdom heights for example. The latter is not a bad place by any stretch, just far more remote if you have a choice between the two. Although some people like remote. The flood stuff someone else mentioned is also true. No water in the houses but definitely cut off from access. Although if we’re being real you couldn’t get a lot of places during Harvey.

A older home would be ok like the mid 80s. A few of the neighborhoods are kinda out in the middle of nowhere I want to be close shops not 15 miles away.

Aliana did really well during Harvey, not sure if you can find a resale in your price range.

Agreed on GW/NT, especially if OP is willing to take something older than 1998 and update to their liking.

Honestly the best neighborhoods in The FBC are the North County (West of 99, and in East of 99, Cinco Ranch north of the bayou and west of Mason Road) and Central FBC centered on First Colony (Sugar Land and Missouri City). Richmond/Rosenberg are still complete dumps and the South County (Needville) is still distant and undeveloped.

I'm looking forward to the day when Fort Bend County resembles Orange County, California!

A.) You jest.

B.) You're trolling

C.) You jest so that people stop moving this way?

I'll follow up my previous post with a more thought out post. If you were speaking in jest, disregard.

1. Richmond is a mix of MPCs (Pecan Grove, Pecan Lakes, Rivers Edge, River Park West), older developments on larger lots in Richmond proper, and acreage neighborhoods with properties worth north of $1M. I would hardly consider that a dump, compared to the literal dump next to Aliana and the Four Corners area. This opinion, however, is trash.

2. Old Rosenberg (36, 90-A corridors) is a mix of commercial/industrial, larger lot non-MPC pocket neighborhoods and non-foundation homes. I wouldn't call that a dump so much as a broad mix of socioeconomic areas. Also, still no literal dumps nearby.
New Rosenberg (along and adjacent to the 59 corridor) is a mix of starter and upward-mobility neighborhoods. These are not dumps. This opinion is also trash.

3. Not to be pedantic, but FC/Sugar Land/Missouri City is not at all central FBC. Those areas border the eastern edge of FBC. The geographic center of FBC is closer to SE Rosenberg; the county seat is in Richmond, also near central FBC.

Seriously a DFW resident? Have you ever been to Fort Bend County? It's not one of the most popular places for out-of-towners to visit in Houston. Must be one of those postcard "Better Led by Red" supporters from the county GOP.

Clearly you have never needed to drive through economically depressed Richmond/Rosenberg city proper along run down houses and commercial areas on the main streets to serve for jury duty or to visit DPS to renew your drivers license.

Despite the message of the postcard, the pace of development is lackluster. It took a while for the FM 1463 area to be developed. The remote southern part of the county is still served by a dangerous 2-lane state highway. Yet all the development is all bedroom communities and few commercial areas for offices.

The master-planned areas in Katy and Sugar Land are very nice places to live but the pace of the sprawl has been anemic. It's time to kick it up a notch!

Lol no. FBC resident for the last 25 years. I grew up in Sugar Land in a neighborhood that was recommended to the OP. The userID reflects my alma mater.

Maybe you need to reconsider what constitutes a dump. I drive by Alief-Clodine on a regular basis - that area is rough. I work near Meadows Place - the commercial areas along Belfort and Wilcrest are rough. I drive by the aforementioned literal dump - that area is economically depressed.

Sure, Rosenberg is no Woodlands. But to write off the entirety of Richmond/Rosenberg as a dump is disingenuous and misguided.



Are you one of those "FBISD or bust" types?
