I have 3 areas of interest...of course depending on your desire to have a move-in ready or a fixer-upper, I'd recommend Tara, near Greatwood, The Grove near Pecan Grove Plantation, and Pheasant Creek or Covington Woods in West Sugar Land. These areas have great schools that they feed to and are constant favorites for a well kept home in that price range. All have good access to major roads, low taxes, and low HOA dues to add to the over all affordability. A newer neighborhood further out is Sunrise Meadows. There is a down payment assistance program that helps with a build and several good condition foreclosures that are less than 3 yrs old. Are you at all interested in Foreclosures?
