Homes for Sale in Conroe ISD that are in New Construction Neighborhoods
Hi friend. Are you looking to relocate to the The Woodlands, Conroe, Montgomery, or Spring? Are you s asd in Conroe ISD? Well let me help do a little of that research for you. I have analyzed all of the new neighborhoods in Conroe ISD, and have broken them down a little bit for you below. I am going to insert the list, and then explain a bit more how I grouped them..
Neighborhoods with New Construction in Conroe ISD
Okey doke. So if you look behind the name of each elementary school, you will see a letter. That letter corresponds with the rating the TEA gave that particular school. I am very confident with the education given at both A and B schools, but obviously I am going to hold an A school a little higher than a B school. And if you take the particular school, you can use some other websites and check out their ratings. I am sure you have seen the 1-10 scales on Niche and GreatSchools. I am not a huge fan of these rating systems, just because of all the search I have done. Schools that I personally know are way better than another, end up with a lower rating, so long story short, take it all with a grain of salt, and compare all resources when deciding which school will be the best fit for you and/or your family.
So there are amazing neighborhoods not featured on the list above, and that is only because they aren't new construction of they are on the outskirts of Conroe ISD. Other favorites of mine include Tomball ISD and Klein ISD. So if you are interested in those, please reach out to me, and I can give you more insight on those.
Okay, now to the ranking and grouping I did.. Fosters Ridge is at the top because it is all A rated schools and zoned to The Woodlands High School. If you dive deeper, The Woodlands High School (and College Park High School have accumulated) a lot of awards. Grand Oaks High School is the newest high school in Conroe ISD, and so it hasn't really established itself like the two I just mentioned. Fosters Ridge is on the outskirts (north side) of The Woodlands, and you would enjoy the same shopping, restaurants, and recreation as living in The Woodlands. The reason why Fosters Ridge made its way to the top of the list is because it is all A rated schools, and The Woodlands High School is more established than Grand Oaks High School. My only complaint about the neighborhood is the high tax rate, but keep in mind, high tax rates are associated with most new construction neighborhoods. Everything I mentioned about Fosters Ridge is also true about Stillwater. Stillwater is a faux hilly neighborhood (in a good way), and is beyond gorgeous. The architecture you find in Stillwater is a notch above most and breathes Chip & Joanna Gaines. There are many things I love about Stillwater, including how large of a home they construct, and the price range you will find: $300k - $990k. If I had to pick between these two neighborhoods, I might pick Stillwater because it is closer to I-45.
In that second grouping you will find Harmony and Woodson's Reserve. I adore Woodson's Reserve a bit more than Harmony because it is more of a close knit community, and it is beyond beautiful. Harmony is quite large and has homes priced between $200k and $600k. I favor Woodson's Reserve a little bit more because it is priced $300k - $800k, and only houses single family homes. Although townhomes are amazing, I feel like the price point of town homes sometimes hurts the "starter" homes value. Harmony is more spread and has many roads entering and exiting the neighborhood, and is even connected to older neighborhoods. I like Woodson's Reserve for how secluded it feels (doesn't have a zillion roads running in and out), even though these neighborhoods are practically right next to one another.
I adore the next grouping of neighborhoods: Boulevard Green at Vision Park and The Reserve at Woodmill Creek. I love townhome and zero lot line neighborhoods, and Boulevard Green at Vision Park is just that. I feel like they have so much to offer to someone that doesn't want an expansive yard. The community itself is gorgeous and can be found in Shenandoah. If I wasn't addicted to my large backyard, and I couldn't spend a million dollars, I would LOVE to live in this neighborhood! Then we have The Reserve at Woodmill Creek, and ironically these two neighborhoods are being developed by the same builder. I am not sure which location I like better, but probably The Reserve at Woodmill. I think it has a bit more walkability (bikability) to the things I love to do.. AKA explore The Woodlands on bike and foot! Both neighborhoods are fantastic, and the Boulevard Green at Vision Park has amazing local in reference to I-45!
Next we have Bristol Lakes (3.3242 % tax rate) and Falls at Imperial Oaks (3.2442 % tax rate). These neighborhoods are both extremely popular, with Falls at Imperial Oaks acculating more sales, but my major complaint is how high the tax rate is in in these two neighborhoods. I personally do not see any benefit to how high the tax rate in that neighborhood is. Call me a little bias, but I do like my 2.5% tax rate. Lol. If you are looking into either of these areas, I would highly recommend comparing them with the ones at the top of this list.
Meadows at Imperial Oaks is next on our list, and it brings with it an even higher tax rate of 3.4242%. I guess the appeal in these neighborhoods, Harmony, and Woodson's Reserve is the easy access to the highways. Just keep in mind we are getting lower in school ratings. Meadows at Imperial Oaks is the first neighborhood with a high school that drops to a B rating. Harpers Preserve, and Jacobs Reserve are grouped together on the list, but Jacobs Reserve finds a little better resale just because of the pure fact of people perseption of "which side of I-45" you are on, north of The Woodlands.
Next we have Woodforest, which is one of my favorite neighborhoods on the list, and sadly it is closer to the bottom of the list. All of the schools are rated a B, it is still a top notch community to consider. The community is beyond amazing, and you will find a lot of Woodlands originals relocating to Woodforest. Woodforest does offer town homes, gated sections, and even a 55+ section. The events calendar is parallel to none. Woodforest is on the northwest outskirts of The Woodlands, and offers seclusion, fresh air, and the nicest people you will ever meet. The amentities are amazing, and if you don't have to commute into Downtown Houston, this neighborhood is an amazing option! Next we have Grarystone Hills. What I love about Graystone Hills is how large the homes are. You get some really good value in this part of Conroe! Both Woodforest and Graystone Hills have good tax rates (both under or right at 3%). Graystone Hills is located right off of I-45, but doesn't quite have all the amenities most of my clients are looking for. But if location is key for you, please compare Graystone Hills and Grand Central Park.
Grand Central Park is one of my favorites as well. It was developed on the old boy scout camp grounds. although the elementary school is a C, it is still a neighborhood to consider. I have a feeling, the ratings of the school will continue to change, as Grand Central Park grows. The commercial hugging the neighborhood is very nice, and the master planned aspect, that is currently in process, really is something to check out! Lastly there is Artavia. I have a hard time pushing a neighborhood with a D, B and C rating, but I will let you be the judge.
I hope you have found this list beneficial, and I hope you reach out to me when it comes time to buy your next home, or to assist in your relocation. I love helping others, and I look forward to learning your story.
