Renter's guide to Stafford, TX

Stafford is a suburb of Houston, Texas, and a city within the Houston-The Woodlands-Sugar Land metropolitan area, located mostly within Fort Bend County. This relatively small town offers a suburban feel, while providing plenty of amenities to keep residents occupied. It’s widely regarded as one of the best places to live in Texas, ranking as the most diverse suburb in the State, and the 18th best Texas suburb for young professionals.

With a population of 18,092, Stafford is among the smaller Houston suburbs. Neighboring Missouri City for example, has a population of 67,358, while nearby Sugar Land has 78,817. Stafford is also smaller in terms of area, with 7 sq. miles, making it almost 100 times smaller than Houston proper.

The city is located about 18 miles southwest of downtown Houston, which can be reached within 30 minutes via the US-90 Alternate, a highway that passes through the south of the city. Interstate 69 also passes through the city, and both connect with the Sam Houston Tollway, which circles Houston and provides routes in all directions. Interstate 69 can be followed west to Victoria, which is just over 100 miles away.

Stafford can be described as having a humid subtropical climate, which leads to hot, humid summers, and mild to cool winters. The city sees 51 inches of rain per year, 13 inches more than the national average, with May to October typically seeing the most rain. July is typically the hottest month, with highs of 94°F, while January normally sees lows of 43°F.

Tips for renting in Stafford, TX

Stafford is a fantastic place to move to if you have work arranged in or near the city. Poor public transport options mean that it’s difficult to commute to downtown Houston, or other cities, unless you own a private vehicle. In this case, travel is relatively quick and easy in all directions, making Stafford a great base. But a private vehicle is not essential to living in Stafford, as you can find most of what you need within walking distance.

One of the most popular areas include the neighborhoods around ‘The Fountains’, on the west side of IS 69. These neighborhoods are close to the shopping mall, as well as a wealth of entertainment venues. In addition, they also have quick and easy access to the freeway and are somewhat removed from the more industrial commercial center of the older part of town. For a less urban area, the Promenade at Stafford Run is also close to several amenities, but also enjoys more green space, as well as access to Highway 90 Alternate.

There are more houses than apartment buildings in Stafford, though more complexes are under construction. This is good for families, but it may be difficult to find somewhere small enough if you’re a young professional.
