Marcello Lakes is a waterfront community located in the Northwest section of Katy in the 77493 zip code. Every lot in the community backs up to a lake that winds throughout the homes in the neighborhood.Each home can have a private dock, and electric-powered or solar-powered water vehicles are allowed on the Lakes. The lake is stocked, but is in early stages of population, so right now fishing within the subdivision is catch and release. Eventually, fishing will be allowed, and each home will be able to keep a certain amount of fish caught.The thing that makes Marcello Lakes somewhat unique is its price point. Most lakefront communities in the Katy area - such as Lakes of Katy and August Lakes - have significantly higher than average price tags. Homes in Marcello Lakes start in the high...

When GreatSchools.org pushed their updated rankings out at the end of 2018, I noticed the jump in Taylor High School's ranking. I own several rental properties in the Memorial Parkway neighborhood, which is zoned to Taylor, and the subdivision has seen some higher than average appreciation over the last 18 months than Katy overall has.  So I decided to dig a little bit deeper into the overall high school rankings for Katy ISD. While Greatschools.org does not keep the previous rankings of the schools in an archive, I was able to use the Wayback Machine to view the profile pages for each school in the past.  All of the below rankings were updated October 2018.  KISD High School Current Rating as of October 2018 Seven Lakes High School 10/10  Cinco Ranch High School 9/10  Tompkins High Sch...
