Fort Bend County has great schools. Lamar Consolidated ISD, Fort Bend ISD, Stafford Municipal School District all have award winning schools.

Depending on your needs new homes or the resale market it is an ideal time to buy.

Each district has exemplary schools. If you will google those schools, you can check out the strengths of each. Realtors may give an opinion but the choice is ultimately the buyer's. I would be happy to assist you with your home buying needs. Let me first begin by saying now is the time to buy as our lising inventory is the result of a very robust market.

The question ask for home buying in the 77479 area code. The answers that have been given are all good answers. I not positive but none of the communities are in that zip code. Probably because there is nothing below 100k in that zip code. Most of the areas mentioned have good elementary schools. The answer is: Be prepared to purchase of make an offer sooner as opposed to later to get the home of your choice. At this price range in these areas mentioned, the good homes sells quickly.

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?
