We are looking to purchase a home. However there is a slight chance that we have to move in a couple of years. I have 2 elementary school aged boys. I wanted to know people's opinions of Cinco Ranch oppose to Sienna Plantation.


Typically homes in Cinco ranch that are around 2700SF upgraded home goes for about 240K in Sienna Plantation I saw some homes that were about 3200SF for that price.

What are people’s opinions on why price differs so much? Where is the best investment for resale down the road. I dont want to worry about my house not selling. Both places looked nice and both had nice ammenities however i believe cinco is much more near completion that sienna.

Please give me the good, the bad and the ugly in these places.

thank you!!!...

P.s i also saw a small community in Katy called Westheimer lakes north. Anyone know anything about that place ?? all your opinions would be greatly appreciated! Thank you

I currently live in Seven Meadows which is right down the road from Westheimer Lakes. It looks like a nice neighborhood, unfortunatly VERY new and still under construction. That makes it a little harder to ID as a good, bad or ugly neighborhod. Cinco Ranch and Sienna Plantation are known as master planned communities. Cinco Ranch is also down the road from me in Katy but I think Sienna Plantation is in Pearland. Prices vary by location due to where you are trying to commute to and from. Sienna I believe attacts a lot of people from the south side of Houston, The Texas Medical Center, and downtown, while Cinco attacts people that work on the west side of Houston and downtown. I believe both areas have excellent schools (Cinco uses Katy ISD and Sienna uses Pearland ISD (i think)) anyway I hope this helps.

Yes -- Sienna is in Missouri City, just east of Sugar Land, uses Fort Bend ISD.

I think the main reason someone would live in one or the other would depend on where their job was...

ACTUALLY, no. Sienna Plantation is in unincorporated Fort Bend County, outside of Missouri City. You are correct that SP is in FBISD; kids attend Hightower HS, Baines MS, and either Scanlan Oaks ES or Scanlan Oaks ES.

But it's not in Missouri City. A lot of areas have postal addresses of "X" city but are not within the city limits.

E.G. Some areas in far north Harris County and far northwest Harris County have "Houston" addresses, but the people are not in Houston, and therefore do not get Houston city services.

The million dollar question, Honeyinhouston, of "what city are you in?" is "Who do you pay taxes to?" - Whatever city guy A pays taxes to is his city. If guy A does not have to pay city taxes, he is in an unincorporated area.

Also, all of the schools in Fort Bend ISD that have "Richmond" addresses, for instance, are not in the city of Richmond. The city of Richmond consists of 3.9 square miles within Lamar Consolidated ISD (And, by the way, Foster HS, despite its Richmond address, is in unincorporated territory and does not serve Richmond at all... Richmond is zoned to Lamar Consolidated HS in Rosenberg) .

Yo Vicman, the guy just wanted to know where Sienna Plantation is, not the legal description. Call it Missouri City or unincorporated Fort Bed County, what you will. The bottomline -- people typically use their physical street address to respond to the question of where their home is located. I lived in Sienna Plantation, and nowhere in my address was the phrase "unincorporated Fort Bend County".

And to the original poster, we searched in all the master planned developments in south suburban Houston before deciding on Sienna Plantation. It is really a VERY NICE place to live. Only drawback was the long commute just to get on 59 to go downtown. And I was never crazy about the mall in Sugarland. Other than that, we loved Sienna Plantation.

Haven't kept up to date since selling our house there, so cannot comment as to the projected resale values. I think you should check with a really good agent for that.

Default Both are nice

People usually choose one or the other because of job location. I dont like I10s traffic. Horrible!! Fotbend Tollway NEVER has traffic

I live in Sienna and love it here.
