My family and I visited Houston last year and loved the master planned community, Fairfield in Cypress. We are considering moving there from Minnesota. We need better weather! Can anyone give me any personal comments/views/opinions on Fairfield. From my research I have found that they have great elementary schools, looks like it's a great place for familes, affordable, large houses. Any additions to my list?

Its very very far away.
If you're going to live there, you need to work close to there.

Yes, we would work in the area. I have heard and read that you need to live by your work!

As far as xburbs go, I'd rank it pretty average.

While I understand where Easily Amused is coming from, it's interesting to note the comparable average household income demographics of Fairfield vs. the West Memorial Area:

Fairfield
1-Mile...3-Mile...5-Mile
$115,408..$110,935..$100,317

West Memorial Area
1-Mile...3-Mile...5-Mile
$108,683..$88,781..$82,045

People I know who live in Fairfield seem to really like it. The schools are great. Most tend to want to stay there, choosing to upgrade into larger homes rather than move out of the community. To accomodate this trend, the new areas towards the back of the community are really nice (Lakes of Fairhaven and Saddle Ridge) and move towards the higher-end $350k's to the Millions.

As far as those types of open range master-planned communities I personally really like Bridgeland. Personally however, I prefer the wooded part of Cypress (Longwood/Coles Crossing, etc), but I would live in Bridgeland. Cypress Creek Lakes is very nice as is Blackhorse. Each one of these areas has great demographics.

Fairfield is a great place to live. However, the weather isn't always great around here.

Fairfield is a very nice community. I would live there if my work were close, it would be awesome.

Football. Fairfield doesn't have mass apartment units to pull the income average down in these broad sweeping percentages. Memorial takes on a lot of them. Comparing single family household income/accumulated wealth/holdings to single family household etc, it would be completely different.
Besides I've seen numbers that have the average income for 77024 (the wealthiest in Texas and in the Top 10 in the USA) around 88k, with the average single family home being 325k.(however we all know you can't get into 77024 for much under 500 if you want running water) Doesn't add up does it?

My point is/was the far away and very average factor compared to all the other far away places. It had nothing to do with income.

Weather in Houston is strange. One day it's nice and sunny the next it's cold and wet. You never know how it's going to change. We have pretty days and not so pretty.

Don't get me wrong, I do love where I live. Also, if your not use to humidity then it can be pretty bad. I don't mind the weather here except for the fact that I have to wash my car so often.
