    5/5 Scott S. on Apr 7, 2021

    My experience hada been nothing short of amazing. I love the location, the layout of the property, amenities, staff, maintenance team... from top to bottom the best community I’ve ever lived in (and I’ve lived in a lot all across the state). Plain and simple, I love calling it home.

Renter's guide to Sugar Land, TX

Sugar Land awaits! One of the fastest expanding cities in the region—or even the country—Sugar Land, TX grew by over 150% from 2000 to 2010.

Though, in terms of raw size, Sugar Land is still less than 5% the size of Houston and just a little smaller than neighboring community, The Woodlands. Speaking of Houston, it’s just 22 miles away from Sugar Land, while Austin is a little further, at 157 miles.

In 2014, Nerd Wallet and Money Magazine named Sugar Land one of the best cities to raise a young a family or find a new job. And in 2016, both publications came back to honor the city as the 4th best place to live in Texas and one of the best in the US to retire in.

Like much of Texas, Sugar Land gets quite hot during the summers, with daily highs around 95⁰F and heat indexes even higher, due to the region’s humidity. Did we mention summer thunderstorms? They’re quite common.

July and August are the hottest months, but things cool down considerably throughout the rest of the year, with average winter temps from around 62⁰F to 45⁰F. January is the coldest month, though snow is still quite rare in Sugar Land.

Tips for renting in Sugar Land, TX

Does Sugar Land sound like the place for you? Before you start packing, let’s take a quick look at some of the local tenant laws.

For the Houston metro, landlords are required to provide a safe and livable environment for their tenants, which includes working hot water and heating.

If repairs are needed and the landlord fails to make them within a reasonable amount of time of being informed, you have the right to terminate the lease or even sue. As long as you don’t have any past due rent, simply give your landlord notice that you plan to sue or end the lease and they’ll have just seven days to fix the problem—or face the consequences.

Of course, all rental agreements are slightly different, so make sure to look over your lease before signing!

Things for renting

Living in Sugar Land, TX

There’s lots to like about Sugar Land.  For starters, the city is very family-friendly and has some great public schools. With its rapid growth, Sugar Land may not quite classify as a “small” city anymore, but it’s certainly manageable.

Speaking of the pros of living in Sugar Land, TX, Houston is also just a short commute away, which means you have all the amenities of one of the country’s biggest cities at your fingertips, from entertainment to sports to shopping. In fact, Niche.com named Sugar Land the #4 best suburb of Houston for 2017.

Of course, no city is perfect, and there are some cons to living in Sugar Land too. The city’s rapid expansion has caused a sharp uptick in traffic, but there still aren’t many options for public transportation.

All of that moving will surely work up an appetite. For that, there’s Cajun cuisine at The Rouxpour Restaurant & Bar, Tex-Mex at Pappasito’s Cantina, or pizza and waffles at the local favorite, Jupiter Pizza and Waffle Company.
