Home Buying Tips

This page include a lot of Cross Creek Ranch real estate buying tips, but my best tip is: Get the best real estate agent! I would love to help you buy a great home! I specialize in getting home buyers the best home for your needs. My clients love me (read testimonials) because they know  I make YOUR best interests my TOP priority. 

If you haven’t already, then send me your criteria for a house by filling out this online form, so I can set up a custom search for you.
Then you will get automated emails when new homes, that match your criteria, hit the market. My custom search is the most accurate search available! No search you have access to (on HAR, Zillow, Realtor, Homes, Redfin, etc.) is better than my search because my search is directly from the MLS (Multiple Listing Service) which is where all the other websites get their data. (The MLS gets it FIRST!) Plus, I can narrow down your search result to the school level (and more!) and filter out less-than-desirable areas for you to save you time and effort. Since I am the local area expert, I know which neighborhoods flood (for example) and can filter those out for you automatically. If you find that you need me to revise your search criteria, just send me a quick email and tell me what change needs to be made.
Here is some helpful information to get you started:
I personally wrote all this info, photographed the neighborhoods, and put together the videos…this proves I’m a boots-on-the-ground local area expert. I don’t just work here…I live here! What other agent provides all this info?! 

When You Are Ready to Tour Homes

When you are ready to tour some homes, then call/text me at 832-779-2890 so we can get you on the calendar and discuss exactly what will be the perfect home for you. As a Cross Creek Ranch real estate expert, I can narrow your focus and help you find the perfect home.

Or you can send me your perfect home criteria here: Listing Alerts

Once I set up your custom search, then you will start getting home listings via email and you can mark them with Hearts to mark your favorites. A couple of days before our scheduled tour, I make appointments for your Favorite homes and print out the maps, home data, etc. for our tour. On the day of our tour we will meet at my office and then drive the area together so I can tell you about the area and point out various features while also touring homes. This is a great way to find your perfect home!

Katy TX


About Katy TX

Top 10 Things About Katy TX:

  1. Highly-rated schools
  2. Lots of fun things to do
  3. Many affordable homes in all price ranges
  4. Low-risk of flooding in most areas (except those near the Addicks-Barker reservoirs on far east side)
  5. Not in Windstorm Insurance area (such as Pearland or Friendswood)
  6. Easy access to downtown Houston (during off-peak travel times)
  7. Multiple hospitals to choose from
  8. Multiple private schools available
  9. Close to the Energy Corridor
  10. Plenty of shopping malls and centers available

Katy TX is a very large area on the west side of Houston TX…where the counties of Fort Bend, Harris, and Waller converge. It is hard to explain to people because, technically, the incorporated “City of Katy” is only a small area of about 15,000 people. However, the “Katy Area” or “Greater Katy Area” usually refers to the entire area covered by the Katy Independent School District and various sources quote the population to be somewhere around 300,000-340,000.

According to Wikipedia, “Many people confuse Greater Katy with the City of Katy, however there is no city representation or services provided to people outside of the actual city limits of Katy. Some of this area is actually within the extraterritorial jurisdiction of the City of Houston the city of Katy cannot annex this area without express permission from the City of Houston. This has occurred on several occasions in regards to relatively small tracts of land. Most recently this came into play with development of the Katy Mills Mall, which sat mostly within the City of Katy but about half was in the Houston ETJ. The developer and city of Katy threatened to build just parking lot on the Houston area depriving Houston of any real property tax value. For 1 million dollars Katy bought the right to annex the area desired.”

City of Katy (incorporated)


Greater Katy Area (Katy ISD)


Since it is such a large area, I like to divide Katy into three major sections:

  • North of Interstate 10 (not covered in this guide)
  • South of Interstate 10 but East of Grand Parkway
  • South of Interstate 10 but West of Grand Parkway



My terms “North Katy,” “East Katy,” and “West Katy” are not official terms. They are just how I separate and explain the different parts of Katy to clients.

These three areas are very different in regards to the scores of the schools and the age and price of the homes. Generally speaking, the area north of I10 has lower scoring schools and, therefore, less expensive homes. The areas south of I10 both have high scoring schools, but some parts still have better schools than other parts. The east side of Grand Parkway is older, and has more mature trees (therefore “prettier” than the west side) but also has older homes that may need to be updated. These homes are closer to Houston and, therefore, have shorter commute times than the west side of Grand Parkway.

The area west of Grand Parkway is newer and so there are lots of newer, modern homes zoned to high-scoring schools. However, if you live far-west you will have a longer commute than the far-east side of Katy (to downtown or Galleria).

We could probably separate another area out: the Energy Corridor which, for now, I include in east Katy.

The area of Katy is so large that it crosses two counties (Harris and Fort Bend) and multiple ZIP Codes (see below).


PROs and CONs

The following summarizes the PROs and CONs about Katy:


  • High performing schools
  • Affordable prices
  • Nearby shopping
  • Plenty of fun things to do
  • New construction homes available
  • Energy-efficient homes available
  • Beautiful neighborhoods available with lakes and mature trees

  • Commute to downtown Houston during peak drive times may be more than 45 mins
  • Higher property taxes (to pay for top schools)
  • East side has older homes that may need remodeling
  • East side, close to reservoirs, flooded during Hurricane Harvey


Katy is located on the far west side of Houston TX. The following map shows the location of Katy in relation to Houston.

Katy Demographics

It is extremely challenging to get accurate population statistics and demographics for the Katy Area…since it is not all incorporated. According to the Katy Area Economic Development Council’s Website (www.katyedc.org):

“Powered by one of the most acclaimed school districts in the state of Texas, Katy area’s growth is fueled by an abundant and talented population, which is growing at of rate of roughly 5% annually.

Approximately 340,000 people reside in the Katy area and are drawn here by the Katy Independent School District (Katy ISD), which now has over 77,000 students. The Katy area is larger in population than the City of Pittsburgh, PA. Katy’s past growth between the years 2000 and 2010 increased by 84%. This phenomenal growth is projected to continue, fueled by Katy ISD, energy companies and corporations, businesses and entrepreneurs. By the year 2022, projections show that over 391,000 people will call the area home.

Employment in the Katy area continues to grow at similar pace. The civilian employed population is 180,758 persons with growth projected to 217,652 persons by the year 2022 (20.4% increase). The Katy area has a low unemployment rate at 4.6%.

The demographics of the Katy area are grounded in a strong income base with exceptional educational attainment. The average household income is $127,335 in the Katy area and projected to increase to $147,821 by the year 2022. The strong income base translates to strong educational attainment above the national average, with over 44% of the population having bachelor’s or graduate degrees.”

Take a look at the demographics of the schools zoned to the area you are looking at if you want a more accurate picture of the area.

Katy Schools

One thing that is very challenging for people to understand about the Houston-metro area is that some schools districts are very large and can have BOTH high-rated AND low-rated schools within the SAME school district. Katy ISD has over 65 schools and Fort Bend ISD (for Sugar Land TX) has over 73 schools! Naturally, with that many schools, some schools are going to be excellent and some may be low-performing. Of course, some school districts are better than others, but a home can be zoned to low-rated schools even if it is in a highly rated school district like Katy ISD. This means that you can’t focus on just a school district in your home search….you need to focus on the individual schools.

Also know that school ratings can and will fluctuate from year to year…generally moving up or down one point each year. For example, Seven Lakes HS was rated a 9 in 2017 but moved up to a 10 (on greatschools.org) in 2018. Some schools stay the same rating from year to year, but some may move up or down.

Another thing to know…a neighborhood may be zoned to multiple elementary, middle, and high schools. So you may want to live in large neighborhood like Cinco Ranch, but just know that your home may be zoned to one of eight elementary schools, six middle schools, and four high schools…depending on which part of Cinco Ranch you live. Or if you live in Cross Creek Ranch, the east side is zoned to Katy ISD but the west side is zoned to Lamar Consolidated ISD. So within the same neighborhood, you could be zoned to two different school districts!

Also know that school zones can and will change over time….especially in new home developments. For example, when Tamarron first opened, it was zoned to Katy ISD schools but quickly got rezoned to Lamar Consolidated ISD, due to over-crowding. And if a new neighborhood builds out quicker than schools are added, then you could be rezoned multiple times…and maybe to lower-performing schools than originally expected. So be very careful about choosing homes based on their current school zones! (This is why you need a local area real estate expert, like Sheila Cox, to find the right home.)

Katy ISD

» See Katy ISD Info

» See Katy ISD information for newcomers

Many people move to Katy because of Katy schools and the award-winning and acclaimed school district: Katy ISD (Independent School District). Katy ISD serves over 70,000 students spread over a 180+ square mile area containing 60+ schools. As one of the largest employers in the Katy area, this school district employees over 9,000 people, including 4500+ teachers. The average teacher salary is $55,000/yr and the average student-teacher ratio is 15:1.


The ACT (American College Test) and SAT (Scholastic Aptitude Test) scores in Katy schools are above the state and national averages. In addition, most of the high schools in Katy have a 95-98 percent graduation rate. Two Katy high schools are among the top 100 high schools in the state: Cinco Ranch and Seven Lakes.

People often move to Katy for the excellent schools here. The above average schools (8-10) are mostly in East and West Katy…south of Interstate 10. The schools in North Katy are mostly average (4-7) according to GreatSchools.org.

Katy Crime Statistics

Crime is a neighborhood, rather than city-wide issue. Crime in one part of town may be completely different than crime in another part of town. According to Sperling’s Best Places, “Katy, Texas, violent crime, on a scale from 1 (low crime) to 100, is 20. Violent crime is composed of four offenses: murder and non-negligent manslaughter, forcible rape, robbery, and aggravated assault. The US average is 31.1.

Katy, Texas, property crime, on a scale from 1 (low) to 100, is 53. Property crime includes the offenses of burglary, larceny-theft, motor vehicle theft, and arson. The object of the theft-type offenses is the taking of money or property, but there is no force or threat of force against the victims. The US average is 38.1.”

NOTE: Purple icons are registered sex offenders.

BEWARE! Most online data for crime reports in the Katy area is not accurate. Katy is divided into three counties (Harris, Fort Bend, and Waller). Some crime report sites report only on Harris county (making the side that is in Fort Bend county look virtually crime free) and other sites report only on Fort Bend county (making the Harris county side look crime free).

Being a local area expert, I think you can get a better idea of our higher crime areas by looking at sex offender map locations. Generally speaking, the more sex offenders in the area, the higher the crime rate.

See these articles for more information about how sex offenders effect real estate:

Flooding in Houston Area

NOTE: Cross Creek Ranch did not have flooding issues during Hurricane Harvey and I am not aware of any known flooding issues within this neighborhood.

texas flood guage People moving to the Katy area are often concerned about Katy flood zones. The good news is that, for the most part and with few exceptions, Katy neighborhoods are located in a 500-year floodplain which means that they have 0.2 percent risk for flooding each year…less than 1/2 percent!

0.2 percent (500-year) floodplain – A 0.2 percent (500-year) floodplain is an area at risk for flooding from a bayou, creek or other waterway overflowing during a 0.2 percent (500-year) flood. Structures located in a 0.2 percent (500-year) floodplain have a minimum of a 0.2 percent chance of flooding in any given year.

Less than 8 percent of Katy homes and businesses (approximately 7,209) were flooded during Hurricane Harvey…so don’t let what you see on TV give you the wrong impression…most of the homes in Katy TX do not flood on a regular basis and did not flood even during this HISTORIC hurricane. The water got high and some of the roads were flooded for a few days (mostly around Fry Rd, east of Grand Parkway), but this was an unprecedented weather event which may never occur again. 

I’m not a flood expert, weather expert, engineer, surveyor, etc…I’ve just lived on the Texas Gulf Coast for over 40 years and experienced many floods, hurricanes and tropical storms. Here’s my opinion based on what I have experienced…

Pretty much all areas of the United States (and the world) have to deal with natural disasters. In California it’s earthquakes, mudslides, and wild fires. In the Midwest it’s tornadoes. In the Northeast it’s winter storms and blizzards. Many parts of the country deal with flooding…especially near rivers. Other parts deal with severe droughts. The fact is, you can’t completely avoid natural disasters anywhere…so you need to minimize your risk and prepare for them as best you can.

If you want to live anywhere on the Gulf Coast (Texas, Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Florida) or anywhere in the Houston region, then you will need to be prepared for hurricanes and flash flooding. One thing history has shown us regarding flooding…history means nothing! Each time we experience a major flood, you will see many flooded home owners on the news saying something like, “We’ve lived here over 30 years and never flooded before.” Last year (2019) there was a major flash flood and the new thing we heard afterwards was, “We didn’t flood in Harvey, but we flooded this time.”

So just because a home has never flooded before, does NOT guarantee it will not flood in the future. It just means it has a lower risk for flooding. Likewise, just because a home flooded during Hurricane Harvey, does NOT mean it will ever flood again. That was a historical storm that, most experts believe, is unlikely to occur in Katy again in our lifetime.

So, if you are buying a home in most parts of Katy Texas, then your risk for your home flooding is relatively low, especially compared to the rest of the Houston area. 

NOTE: In my definition of “flooding” I am referring to your home being infiltrated with flood/surface water.

Cross Creek Ranch Real Estate Agent

About Sheila Cox

     sheila cox five star realtor2


Hey! My name is Sheila Cox, a Katy real estate agent. I have lived in this area since 1998…starting in Upper Kirby, then Westchase, then Sugar Land, Richmond, and now Katy. So I guess you can say I know the area. I wrote every word and took every local photo and video that you see on this website…so I hope that proves that I’m the local area expert. 😀

I have been a real estate agent since 2009 and I really enjoy the complexity of this business. I’m one of those “think outside of the box” problem-solvers that my clients find invaluable when problems crop up in the real estate transaction. (If you have ever bought or sold a house before, you know what I mean.) Before I became a Katy real estate agent, I worked as an instructional designer, corporate trainer, and tech writer in the software industry. That’s how I learned to create my own websites!

Please forgive me when I look up a lot as I think of how to say what I want to say. I’m a Realtor, not a professional videographer! ;-D


On a personal note, I have a teenage daughter who is my pride and joy. We enjoy going for walks around our Katy neighborhood with our little Rat Terrier/Dachshund mix “Darla” and visiting Galveston Island. I enjoy Live Music (especially Classic Rock!), healthy green-living, beaches/oceans, reading biographies and historical fiction, Tex-Mex food, college and professional football, and helping other real estate agents improve their business skills. I was voted “Wittiest” of my Senior class in high school (a hundred years ago) so I have a fun sense of humor and speak sarcasm fluently (when not on the job). 😀

Hiring the right real estate agent is very important, but you need someone that has more than “personality” going for them. This is (probably) your largest financial investment, so please consider these five important reasons why you should work with me:

  1. Even though I have a fun, upbeat personality, I am also smart and analytical…so I can help pinpoint PROs and CONs of homes and situations in a way that truly helps you “cut to the chase” and make the wisest decisions and solve problems quickly.
  2. Because I am analytical, I provide you with important data that you can’t get online…to help with pricing decisions. I hate to say it, but most agents have no idea how to pull all the data, reports, charts, and stats that I will provide you. My goal is to ensure that you always get a good deal in your real estate transaction.
  3. Since I have lived in this area since 1998, I really know the area and can listen to your needs and help you narrow your options so you can focus the best neighborhoods to meet your specifications.
  4. I take my “fiduciary duty” to you very seriously and I’m always looking out for your best interest. You can be sure that I am on your side and that I “have your back.” 
  5. I’ve been selling real estate since 2009. My expertise and knowledge will be invaluable to you when challenges pop up in the process. Plus, my expertise enables me to make the process as smooth as possible for you…providing you with the help and guidance you need along the way.

Why You Should Hire Me


sheila cox five star realtor5Candid Advice—I promise to give you candid advice on all homes and areas so you can make the best decisions. I won’t ignore potential defects that can cost you money, or effect your resale value, in the future. My job is to protect you from defective homes as much as possible while helping you make a sound financial investment. (Read client testimonials)

Local Area Expertise—This isn’t just my business…it’s where I work and live (for 20 years) so I really know the area. I will help you narrow your options and find the best neighborhood for you based on your specifications. For long-term resale value, the neighborhood you choose is just as important as the home you buy. (Download my Ultimate Katy Guide)

Great Data—I will give you the most in-depth data you have ever seen…to help you make the wisest decisions. This includes a professional CMA when you are ready to purchase a specific home…so you don’t pay too much. Plus, my proprietary House Report (see sample) includes the data and information you need to ensure that you are making great home purchase. (Also see Pricing a Home Correctly)

Best Home Searches—Yes, you can search on your own, but no other home search available can filter down to the school level…and filter out the subdivisions that may be known to flood. Tell me exactly what you want, and I can narrow down your options better than any search you have access to. (Request a Custom Search)

Easier Process—Moving your family (and possibly changing jobs) is stressful enough. I’m your transaction manager and will guide you, step-by-step, through the process so you never miss an important deadline. I assist with inspections, repair negotiations, home warranties, HOA compliance inspections, hazard insurance, surveys, appraisals, title commitment, home warranties, title company, and more. (View helpful videos on my YouTube channel)

Network of Experts—My network of experts can make your transition to the area as smooth as possible. Need a painter, electrician, mover, insurance company, etc.? I can help! 

How I Work to Protect Home Buyers

My job isn’t “just” helping you find a house to buy…I’m helping you buy a home. There are over 100 tasks that I perform for you during the purchasing process. I’m looking out for you every step of the way and keeping my eye on the listing agent, the seller, the builder (if applicable), the lender, the inspector, and the title company. I’m on your side because I’m YOUR agent. I help with price analysis and negotiations, legal paperwork, inspections, repair negotiations, home warranties, HOA compliance inspections, hazard insurance, surveys, appraisals, title commitment, home warranties, and more. I have the expertise to help solve complicated problems that often occur in the process. Real estate is a huge financial and legal commitment. Don’t you deserve to have a Five-Star real estate agent on your side?

Take a look at a sample House Report that I do for my clients. This is the extra “due diligence” I do for you, to make sure that you are getting a great home. This is when I triple-check the home’s taxes, schools, aerial maps, sex offenders in the area, flood zones, etc. NO other agent in the world does this! Check out p. 27 regarding the sample Flood Map info I provide.

Greatschools Rating: 10

From their Official Website:

“Randolph Elementary opened in August 2014 in Cross Creek Ranch located in Fulshear, Texas. The school was named after James (Jim) E. Randolph. Coach Randolph was a beloved PE teacher who opened Roosevelt Alexander Elementary in Katy ISD in 1998 and impacted the lives of every RAE student until the spring of 2013 when he lost his battle with cancer. What made this man so special is the way he treated every student who entered the gym for his PE class and the relationships he built with not only students, but the entire community. He took a special interest in EVERY child, knew EVERY child by name, pointed out special talents in EVERY child, and made EVERY child feel loved, honored, and appreciated. He taught children the importance of hard work, respect for others, and most of all to persevere no matter the circumstances.

This is our hope for every child who attends Randolph Elementary. We want every child to feel included, honored, loved, appreciated, and special. We want to build relationships with our community and for them to feel welcome and a part of the learning process and environment at JRE. We strive to use innovative, cutting edge instructional strategies to engage our students and prepare them for the future. We will “Unleash the Potential” of every child who attends Randolph Elementary!”

Named for Obra D Tompkins, Jr, who had originally intended to study law, but both of​ his parents were teachers, and his father urged him to teach, apparently seeing what so many have over the years – a passion for helping youngsters and an almost uncanny ability to connect with people. Throughout his career, he was a mentor to teachers and administrators, a model for students, and an inspiration to everyone he met.  He was always visible – in hallways, on sidelines, and at performances….and he still is at Obra D. Tompkins High School. ​”

He did everything in his power to not only meet the needs of the District, but continually surpass them.

He worked tirelessly to serve his community and balance his roles as a business leader and decision maker for Lamar CISD. From 2006 to 2010, Roberts served his second term as Mayor of Fulshear before moving to Brenham, TX where he and his wife Martha currently reside.

Greatschools Rating: 7

From their official website:

“The campus opened in Fall 2016 with a freshmen and sophomore class only and will grow to add a grade level each year, with our first graduating class being the Class of 2019.

The campus was named after Churchill Fulshear, Jr. The Fulshear family was one of the original 300 families to settle in Texas. Churchill Fulshear, Jr. fought in the Texas War for independence against Mexico. He was also present during General Santa Anna’s surrender. He helped to bring progress to the area by donating land to allow the railroad to bring service through the area. The last family member moved away from Fulshear in 1937, but their legacy remains strong in the area. As is evident by our mascot choice, Churchill Fulshear, Jr. loved horses, especially race horses. He built a horse track called Churchill Downs in Fort Bend. He was fiercely independent and a true Texan. We are proud to be named after such a strong figure in Fulshear’s history.”
