The 13 best-selling master-planned communities in the Houston Suburbs.

Hi friend, my name is Jordan Schilleci, and I am a realtor here in the Houston Suburbs. I love all things real estate. Not only can you find me on the selling side of real estate, but also on the buying side of real estate. Don't tell anyone, but unlike other realtors, I absolutely love working with buyers.

I love to hear your story, and help you solve your problem: Where should I live in the Houston Suburbs? P.S. The most important reason to consider buying right now is because of the large incentives builders are offering. Which, allows you to buy down the interest rate, and bring less than normal to close (it costs less to buy right now!).

We have sat down and compared the first half of 2023 with the first half of 2022 to bring you the 13 best-selling, top-selling, most-popular, my favorite, master-planned new construction communities. Lol. Spoiler Alert: Seven of them are in Fort Bend county (Katy, Fulshear, Rosharon), hence all the highway road construction you might be seeing, and two are in Cypress! But without dragging this post out, let me share all 13 with you.

The 13 Best Master-Planned NEW Communities of the Houston Suburbs

Answering the questions, "Where to live in Houston?"

    Why Folks Call It Home: Probably boasting the number-selling master-planned community in all of the Houston area, this neighborhood has so much to offer that can only be found in Sunterra. The most popular amenities are the crystal lagoon, playgrounds, parks, sidewalks, including golf-cart friendly sidewalks, resort-style swimming pool complete with a lazy river, white-sand beaches, you can kayak and paddleboard, sports fields, tennis courts, a splash pad, play structures, dog parks, fitness center, and so much more.
