We are going to be in the Clear Lake area Sunday and want to drive by some subdivisions in these areas.

Subdivisions we want to find...

Not realllllllly far from 45
$300,000 max (but would prefer about 250,000ish)
A nice family friendly area
FBISD, Clear Creek, or Clear Lake school district

I have looked at Westover Park and Tuscan Lakes...they seem nice but I have no idea how far they are from 45.

I do not know much about this area since all my research was on Sugarland. Any suggestions for places to look into?

Thanks

Just to let you know, there are two school districts that cover Clear Lake/Friendswood/League City, they are Clear Creek ISD and Friendswood ISD. Both are great school districts.

Friendswood ISD is for only some of Friendswood.

Clear Creek ISD is for the rest of Friendswood and all of Clear Lake (and Webster + League City I believe.)

In Clear Lake for your price range you can look at Bay Pointe, Bay Knoll, NorthFork, maybe Bay Forest. All of these are a 5 minute shot to the freeway in the morning, no more than 10 minutes from the freeway to house during the afternoon rush. Pine Brook and east of Space Center you can also look at, but it's a few more minutes from I-45.

My friends live in one called Friendswood Oaks that is very nice. Prices might be a bit higher than 300K but I'm not really positive.

MUD is (I think) Municipal utility district...when you aren't part of a city with city services you can be part of a MUD which pays for services through bonds, which is then a tax to the residents until the bond is paid off. Handles things like water and sewer treatment.

Except - I don't know anyone whose bond has ever been paid off ... for everyone I know, it has been once a MUD always a MUD --- so just figure that tax into your payment for the long haul.
