Where is Fulshear, TX and Why Is It a Top Real Estate Destination?

By
Property Manager with Sitterle Homes

People that are considering a relocation to the Houston area will inevitably hear about Fulshear, TX. This small Houston suburb is quickly gaining in popularity despite its size. If you are interested in what the Fulshear real estate market and communities, like The Pond at Cross Creek Ranch, has to offer continue reading for a brief overview of the location and amenities.

 

Where Is Fulshear, TX?

Fulshear is located about 34 miles due West of downtown Houston in Fort Bend County. Westpark Tollway offers a direct route between the two cities, and I-10 offers another travel option. The closest city is Katy, TX just 13 miles northeast of Fulshear. The city has over eight square miles within a unique border that runs vertically in a series of connected blocks.

 

Why Are More People Moving to Fulshear?

A growing number of people are moving to Fulshear because of three key factors: home values, the peaceful setting and proximity to work. It’s the ideal location for people that want to work in Katy or Houston but live in a nature-filled, quiet town. Given that the unemployment rate is just 3.9% in the county it’s clear that many residents are commuting for work. It’s also possible to get sizeable; state-of-the-art new homes in Fulshear for less than you’d pay within the Houston city limits.

Not really a bad commute, especially if it is not traffic logged.
