Martin, if you are still looking in Steeplechase, I am aware of a beautiful new townhouse that my clients were building that will be coming on the market within days. Unfortunately, they have had to withdraw from the project. The townhouse is almost completed. Please contact me if you are interested to know more.

Hello Marlin,

Thank you for your post here on Trulia.

What features about the home and surrounding appeal to you? Average home price in this area is close to $100,000. Are you looking for specific amenities, schools, type of home?

Cyfair Independent School District is rated well and is huge. Cyfair itself extends and encompasses a wide area.

Since you are a first time home buyer, have you contacted a lender to find out what you will be pre-approved for so you are prepared with your budget and have a good idea of what to focus on? If you need a lender name, I can refer you some names. If you need to find out more about the entire transaction process, please feel free to call me and I will be happy to explain. Please remember to have a Buyer's agent representing you - it does not cost you anything, but a good agent will be able to help you and guide you every step of the way. Your first home should be a joyful and exciting experience, and with a good realtor by your side, it will be.

I am available if you have any questions.

I know the Steeplechase and surrounding area well. My husband and I purchased our first home in Steeplechase 27 years ago. The area has grown a lot since then and so has the Cy-Fair School District. I'm assisting several buyers in that area right now. One of my clients has purchased a couple of houses in Steeplechase for investment properties. If you would rather "try out" the subdivision first before purchasing, my investor client is closing on a property in Steeplechase in 2 weeks and will try around and lease it.

Please let me know if I can assist you further.
Warm regards,

Hey Marlin...the Cy-Fair school district is great overall but it's very big so not all the schools are equal. If you don't have kids, you still want to think about what immediate schools your home will zoned to as this will affect your re-sale value. I would be happy to work with you in your search efforts but I would recommend looking at some other areas as well before a making a move of this magnitude.
