Thanks I am in process of getting pre approval.
Do you think it's possible to get an affordable (<$300k) home (3 to 4 bedroom) in top HISD school district.

I don't see any foreclosures in this section of Sugar Land. If you consider purchasing a foreclosed property, be aware that it may take longer to close on the property since you are working directly with a bank. So, if you have a strict deadline when to buy a house, foreclosure may not always be the best option. Either way, it's a good idea to get pre-approved prior to searching for homes so you know what you can easily afford.

I worked for the City of Sugar Land for nearly 4 years and love this area.

Feel free to contact me if you have any questions.

I have access to down payment assistance grants for first time home buyers. 5% of the sales price to be used towards down payment/closing cost. No re-payment if you own the home for a minimum of 9 years. Contact me for more details.

Before you start looking at houses make sure you get your pre-aprroval letter to make putting an offer on the house you want easier and more appealing to the seller. Sugar Land is a great area, Ilived there for about 7 years. If you need a pre approval letter contact me and I can get you one ASAP.

I currently do not see any foreclosures zoned to Colony Meadows Elementary and only 2 active listings for that section. They range from the $320,000 - $360,000, approximately $105-115 a square foot.
There are other active listings in Commonwealth that are in the Commonwealth Elementary school area.
Most of the homes in this location were built in 1989-1992.
Please email me for more information and a list of the current properties for sale. This is a popular area and the inventory is limited.

Thanks for the question about our great Sugar Land area.

Right now there are no foreclosures zoned to those schools. As to what the average price is for a 5- 10 year old home would depend on size and neighborhood. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact at 832-863-3287 or by email at natalie.aggarwal@kw.com
