Sugarland would be best out of all three of those areas. I prefer mixed areas as well. They have alot of good beauticians in Sugarland and Missouri City(which is nearby) for AA women.

Thanks Suggamom04! I would like a diverse location as well. Is Sugarland and Missouri City very close to Houston? I hear the traffic is terrible, but we are use to a 1hr or less commute.

If he is working in the medical district, I think Pearland is a better choice than Sugarland or Missouri City. The commute should be between 30 and 45 minutes depending on when he goes.

Our neighborhood is very diverse. The schools are good. We would have chosen Sugarland except that my son commutes to Pasadena. We have lots of people working in the medical district living here.

How bad is 'water problem' in these areas? I heard a lot of homes faces foundation problems due to stagnant water generally all over Houston. Is it true? If so what remedy people take to overcome it?

I'm not really sure, but I think the foundation problems are due to the clay soil in the area...add the drought spells and the clay contracts and expands too much, causing foundation issues. There are also some areas of Houston that sit over faults, and those homes tend to have more foundation problems.
Then there are flooding issues if your house is in a flood plain, we tend to get heavy downpours sometimes and that causes flashfloods. But that I think is separate from the foundation issues.

The only water problem here is the lack of water. Some neighborhoods are already implementing water restrictions. Foundations should be watered periodically to avoid cracking.
