I currently live in Charlotte, NC. I may have an opportunity for a career in Sugarland. I am looking for recommendations on areas to look into. Right now I am not looking to buy a house, we are looking to rent. I have 2 kids one in 6th grade and my other is almost 3. So an area that is family friendly with good schools is top on the list. Any insight would be great.

I live in the Highlands Subdivision, and we love it. I have a daughter who is 1, so she doesn't hang out with the neighborhood kids yet, but this is about as close to a "fifties" kinda neighborhood that I've seen in a while. Lots of mature trees, older, yet well built homes, in the 1500-2500 square foot range, prices 135K-165K.

If you are working in Sugarland, Sugarland should work out just fine for you as a place to live.

Sugar Land (it is two words, not one) is a great place to live. Check into First Colony and New Territory (both are master planned communities in Sugar Land).

If you want new construction, I would recommend Telfair or Riverstone. Each has a variety of advantages and disadvantages which are explained in detail in other threads, but feel free to bring up any specific questions you have.

HAR.com has the most selection - just choose the "Residential Lease" section.
