Sugar Land TX City Guide

Sugar Land has become one of the most sought after suburb cities of Houston. It is the fastest-growing city in Texas, growing more than 158 percent in the last decade. And before you move here, you will have to find a place to live. Apartments in Sugar Land offer only the finest amenities, fitness centers and recreational facilities, large closets, and private garages are common. Studios, as well as 1, 2, and 3 bedroom rentals are available.

Sugar Land Master Planned Communities

The city boasts several master-planned communities and award-winning schools, outstanding libraries, and civic organizations. But what is a master planned community?  It’s simply a large collection of homes that were planned well in advance of construction.  Usually, the land is undeveloped.

That is one reason why Sugar Land is full of neighborhoods featuring large green-space, lakes, and plenty of golf courses. One of the largest in the area, Imperial Sugar Land, encompasses 720 acres and boasts all the residential and commercial elements that attribute to its personality and charisma. Renters will find townhomes for rent, and patio homes will plenty of custom work and rich amenities that lead to a happy lifestyle.

Accommodations in Sugar Land

If you want plenty of options for rent, be sure to consider homes and lofts in your search. Although Sugar Land does boast a wide range of apartments, it can’t hurt to have more options. There are plenty of private rentals. If you don’t like tight spaces, houses boast sufficient square footage and front and backyards. 

You can find an apartment to rent in a day, but you probably want to give yourself time to browse many different options.  It might be a good idea to start searching out at least 4-8 weeks before you want to sign your actual lease. Many apartments in Sugar Land will know their availability 8 weeks out. There can be a lot of competition, so the sooner you can get out there, the better. Really there are not a lot of listings to choose. So be sure to have all of your documents in order for fast approval. Need more options? Try nearby Stafford.

In the Market for Private Homes

It’s no secret that this city is a great place to put down some roots. It will depend on your budget, but average prices for a home begin in the mid $300’s.  Luxury homes are also in demand. Some starting over 1 million dollars.

Don’t forget if you rent a home you will need to put down a larger deposit. Also usually a longer lease term will be required. The good news, sometimes you can negotiate your rent directly with the owner. 

The Rent or Buy Question:

There are both pros and cons to each. But there is not a correct answer here. If you purchase a home, you will be responsible for things like property taxes and homeowners association fees and maintenance.  You should know that each subdivision in Sugar Land will have its own tax rate.

Rent a place and you can avoid all of those things. Many will say that renting is throwing away money. But you need a place to live, don’t you? That’s assuming that real estate always goes up and there is a buying ready to pay the price you are asking.

Many of you request specific elementary, middle, and high schools.  You will also need to find out which schools the rental or home is zoned to.
