We are researching different areas and are looking at Friendswood but also came across the Mont Belvieu area. What can you tell me about the area and schools? Thanks!

There are a lot more trailers in Barber's Hill than in Friendswood. And the property is more expensive. Go figure.

Friendswood has been a bedroom community much longer than Mont Belvieu so what Jimmy says has a lot of truth to it. Amenities won't be as close as they are in Friendswood. Also it's built on a salt dome so chemical refineries probably employ most of the folks living there. That being said, my nephew is building a house there because it is supposed to be a good area to raise a family.

I moved last year from Whitehall pa, to s katy tx. let me tell you that s. katy is just a great place to live but unfortunately too far from where I work (channel view).
I am looking now to buy a house in mont belviue / clear lake / or in eagle spring.
Mont belvieu would save me years on mortgage payment since property tax is lower and barely homeowners association fee. if buying a house make sure not to throw money away towards ur escrow, try to keep it towards your principal.
