Need to Know Information for People Buying New Homes for Sale in Flushear, TX

September 18, 2015    By: mramirez


 

Houston new home sales aren’t exactly the same as buying a resale. When you purchase a new, custom home in a community like The Pond at Cross Creek Ranch instead of moving in right away you can build a home to your exact specifications. This of course will mean that from the time you sign a contract it could be a few months before you move in.

 

While you’re waiting for your home to be customized and finalized you can get everything else lined up.

Solid Waste and Recycling – These will need to be set up with the City of Fulshear.

Water and Sewer – The city contracts out water and sewer service to Severn Trent Services. To establish an account you’ll need to contact them at 281.579.4500.
