New 175-acre residential development coming to Fulshear | Fort Bend Economic Development Council

M/I Homes, a home building company, is developing a 175-acre residential development in Fulshear, with homes expected for presale in early 2023.

The plan for Summerview, to be at 5613 FM 359, is for 414 homesites, with more than 20 floor plans available to consider for homes that can have between 3-5 bedrooms and can be either one or two stories.

Expected prices will range from the mid-$200s to low-$300s. The land was purchased in 2021.

The company is also planning for walking trails surrounding the pond and neighborhood as well as a playground for young children.

Tim Sojka, broker of the See TIM Sell Team at Keller Williams and Katy Times real estate columnist, said Fulshear growing because its leaders have made good decisions on community and residential growth.

“Like Katy, Fulshear has repeatedly made good decisions on the housing inventory added to the market,” Sojka said. “They seem to understand the consumers coming west.”

Sojka said the success of the schools in a neighborhood determine the success of the neighborhood. The Summerview homes, when completed, will be in Lamar CISD.

Students living in the planned development would be attending Fulshear High School, Leaman Junior High School, Roberts Middle School and Morgan Elementary School.

The district is among the fastest-growing in Texas, and voters earlier this month approved about $1.5 billion in bonds for new buildings and campus improvements.

“Lamar CISD has one of the best teacher-student ratios out there,” Sojka said. “School districts like Lamar CISD have done a better and better job serving students. I’ve been impressed with Lamar CISD.”

M/I Homes, Inc., is a builder of single-family homes and has sold over 140,000 homes. The company has homebuilding operations in nine states, including Texas. In Texas, the company has operations in Austin, Dallas/Fort Worth, Houston and San Antonio.
