Ft. Bend County new homes are being constructed at record rates because the County itself is growing rapidly. Fort Bend County contains major population centers of Sugar Land (the largest city), Richmond (the county seat), Arcola, Needville, Fulshear, Meadows Place, and Rosenberg. In addition, parts of Pearland, Houston, Katy, Missouri City, and Stafford, as well as smaller towns and unincorporated areas, are also partially situated within Fort Bend County. Overall, the entire county is growing at record rates, but particularly in the areas of Sugar Land and Pearland. These new homes are being sold almost as fast as they can be constructed and landscaped.
Because there are numerous industries that call Fort Bend County home, the area continues to draw educated young professionals as well as working class families into the area to purchase these homes. Cost of living rates are the lowest in the nation’s metropolitan areas, over those in the Great Houston area. If you factor in the per capita income for the major urban centers in this country, Fort Bend County is hard to beat.
Overall, the county is suburban in nature, although the Ft. Bend County new homes range in size and appearance from standard suburban ranchers to larger four- to five-bedroom custom homes that are sited on an acre lot. Some of the larger lots are as much as two to five acres and appear more like a mini ranch. Those who purchase or build homes in the county are well aware of the amenities already available. The county boasts good schools with low student-teacher ratios. Many of the schools are in fairly new plants, yet the tax base in Greater Houston is lower than the national average.
Because many of these new homes are sited in planned communities, there is allowance made for good transportation flow, plenty of green space within and surrounding the communities, and good medical and shopping facilities incorporated within the communities. This makes the County attractive to young families and to retirees, as well. Those who enjoy golf can take advantage of the great weather and of the world-class golf courses either in one of the golf course community homes or on one of the public courses in the area.
With the active night life in nearby Houston, it is no wonder that so many people are choosing to make Fort Bend County home. It has everything a person with or without a family could want in terms of comfort and convenience.
