Sugar Land Neighborhoods

Sugar Land neighborhoods are mostly master planned communities with tree-lined streets, parks, playgrounds, and community pools and tennis courts. Most Sugar Land neighborhoods are divided into subdivisions, and each subdivision will have its own tax rate, school zone, and price range. But when searching for a home, it is best to focus on a neighborhood…not one of the 200+ subdivisions in Sugar Land

The main Sugar Land neighborhoods are shown below. You can click a neighborhood to see a complete description of it including maps, videos, photos, tax info, school ratings, and a list of Sugar Land homes for sale in that neighborhood.

How to Choose the Right Sugar Land Neighborhood for You

Sugar Land Birdseye ViewThe average price of a home in Sugar Land TX is approximately $377,000. If your budget is under $300,000 then you may need to consider a townhome/condo or a bargain property. All Sugar Land neighborhoods have homes with swimming pools, but certain types of homes (for example, a golf course home) can only be found in certain neighborhoods at certain prices.

The table below shows the Sugar Land neighborhoods that contain a specific Type of home by specific Price Range. So find the type of neighborhood you want (like Best Schools) and then find the column for your price range (like $300-400K). Then you  will see a list of neighborhoods that meet your criteria.

For example, if you want a home zoned to the highest ranking high schools in Sugar Land (as in Clements, Austin, or George Ranch high schools) and you have a budget of $200-300K, then your options are only New Territory, First Colony, and Greatwood. If you have $400K to spend, then you may be able to afford a home in Avalon or Commonwealth as well.

Neighborhood Types by Price Range

The following table is organized by neighborhood type (best schools, water view, golf course, etc.) and then by price range. So if you are looking for a golf course home in the $200-300K price range, you see three neighborhood options. Click a neighborhood to see a list of homes for sale.

“I could not say enough good things about Sheila. We have moved all over the world and her service and can do attitude is the BEST I have ever seen. She provides a complete service and really represents you to ensure all your needs are met. She is full of good ideas and pointing out other angles you might not have considered. For this move we were moving from abroad and everything went smoothly thanks to Sheila. We are more than happy to recommend Sheila to anyone. “


“Sheila was the best realtor we could have ever asked for. We could always depend on her to get the job done and she was always looking out for our best interests. I was going through the tragic loss of my mother during the sale and purchase of our home, and Sheila went above and beyond in ensuring that all was being taken care of and everything was moving along smoothly on BOTH ends. Where the other realtor failed during the process, Sheila jumped in to pick up the pieces and kept things moving along. She is dependable and trustworthy, and has great knowledge of the market and lenders. Her superb advice and expertise made the whole process, which could have been very stressful given the circumstances, move along as smoothly and possible. People like Sheila are few and far between, and we are so grateful that we had the opportunity to work with her.”


“Sheila is simply an outstanding realtor. She helped my wife and I sell our fourth and purchase our fifth house. Out of all the realtors, she is honestly the best! She treats the transaction as her own, provides you timely updates as changes occur. Her advice also saved us from costly pitfalls that could have ruined the sell and purchase of our new house. My advice: 1) Use Sheila as your realtor 2) Listen to her recommendations! She is an expert and provides outstanding advice. Sheila thank you for all of your hard work. You did an outstanding job!”

Sugar Land Golf Courses

Sugar Land Golf Courses

There are many Sugar Land golf courses and more in the surrounding area: Sweetwater Country Club Sugar Creek Country Club Greatwood Pubic Course Houstonian Golf & Country Club (aka Shadow Hawk) Pecan Grove Country Club Fort Bend Country Club Quail Valley » View a list of Sugar Land golf course homes for sale Sweetwater “Designed by architect Roger Packard, Sweetwater opened its first 9 holes in late 1982. Host to the LPGA Hall of Fame Golf Classic in July 1984 & 85. Sweetwater Country Club now lives on as a formidable test in golf for the firmly established family community culture of Sugar Land. Two courses (Pecan & Cypress) continue to offer a diverse challenge to golfers of all levels. On Pecan, players will experience lengthy holes of relatively open play, susceptible to ever present Texas winds and at a turn begin winding through majestic pecan groves with the tranquility of aged Spanish moss. Those who would rather play a shorter test are constantly challenged by the emphasis of position over length to avoid the water hazards, strategic bunkers and uneven lies of the Cypress course.” –Source: Sweetwater Country Club Sugar Creek  “Sugar Creek Country Club’s 27 hole golf course features a traditional layout and is one of the best in the Houston area. Established in 1972, this course puts a premium on shot placement off the tees. There are opportunities for long hitters to cut off yardage but not without the risk of posting a big number. Sugar Creek Country Club is a true shot makers course with a good mix of bunkered greens and water hazards that will keep every...
Sugar Land Master Planned Communities

Sugar Land Master Planned Communities

Sugar Land TX is a unique area that consists mostly of “master planned communities.” We typically refer to these Sugar Land master planned communities as “neighborhoods.” Most neighborhoods are further divided into subdivisions. There are over 200 subdivisions in Sugar Land! Some neighborhoods like New Territory (40+ subdivisions), Greatwood (25+ subdivisions), and First Colony (30+ subdivisions) are divided into many subdivisions. Here’s how this happens… When a developer decides to create a planned community, it doesn’t develop the entire plot of land all at once. It opens a section or two at a time. Each section typically has 2 to 5 different builders who are building homes within a certain price range. So one subdivision may contain homes in the $200-400K price range, and another may contain homes in the $400-600K price range, and yet another may contain homes $750K and up. So within one Sugar Land master planned community you may have home prices from $200K to over $1 million, but they would be subdivided so that you should never see a $200K house next to a $900K house. Also some subdivisions may have different features than surrounding subdivisions such as a water front section, gated section, golf course section, etc. For the larger Sugar Land master planned communities you will notice that various subdivisions may be zoned to various elementary schools–and maybe even different middle schools and high schools–all within the same neighborhood. So it is very challenging for newcomers to get a handle on where to live! » See How to choose the right Sugar Land neighborhood for you for help HOA (Home Owner’s Assciation) Fees Another complication is that various subdivisions may have different HOA (home owner’s association) maintenance fees…even within the...
Sugar Land Property Taxes

Sugar Land Property Taxes

Sugar Land Property Taxes–Unfortunately, property taxes in Texas are among the highest in the country. But before you panic, just remember that we don’t have a state income tax in Texas…so one sort of offsets the other. You can read more about Texas property taxes so you are well-informed. In addition, each Sugar Land subdivision (and there are over 200!) has different property tax rates…and they can change from year to year. Subdivisions in our newest neighborhoods, like Telfair and Riverstone, tend to have the highest property tax rates (3.2 to 3.5) and subdivisions in our older neighborhoods, like Sugar Creek or Sugar Mill, tend to have the lowest tax rates (2.2 to 2.8). One thing I like to point out though…our newer homes tend to be much more energy-efficient than our older homes; so you will save money in energy costs when you buy a newer home. That may help partially offset the higher taxes. There are tax benefits and other benefits in owning your own home (which can make up for the high property taxes). Please read The Benefits of Home Ownership to learn more.  To get up-to-date property tax rates, search for the subdivision (or the neighborhood name) below. When you view a neighborhood page, look at the “Subdivision Tax Rates” section and add up the five or six different tax types (city, school, drainage, levee, etc.) to determine the overall tax rate for the subdivision.
