I'll stab:

...in the Houston area? Clear Lake, City of Houston side, by Ellington Field.

Why did you choose the house/area that you currently live in? #1 - It is halfway between our permanent work offices. #2 - It has enough space for us to grow into (family-wise), yet not too much for just the two of us to keep up in the mean time. Although it was lightly used, it is still modern, efficient and solidly built. Split floor plan vs. all bedrooms down was a big issue for us, too.

Do you like your community? What are the major selling points of your community? I think we made a good choice. It is suburban in nature so you can have your own personal space at a reasonable price. People are settled at least somewhat so you can also watch families grow as time goes by. The neighborhood is professionally diverse, w/o the thuggish-ruggish trash that "diverse" usually implies. The neighborhood & area in general has plenty of singles, DINKs, and retirees mixed in. The area has dozens of unique eateries, most of which are great & inexpensive. There is also a decent nightlife scene away from the city core-- more laid back & less crowded as well.

Did you like your builder (if that applies)? This David Weekley from the mid-90s is definitely well-built.

Any regrets? Pros/cons to where you live? Pros are listed above. Cons are it's slightly more expensive per sq ft than most of the non-Houston parts of the area. We're in the worst hurricane zone in Houston proper. A 30-60 commute is still involved if you work in the city core. Clear Lake has generally nice people but also its fair share of unpleasant snobs, too.
