Why You Should Consider Moving to an Active Adult Community in Texas

  • October 10, 2022

Have you been dreaming about making a move to the Lone Star State? If you’re 55 or older, you’re not alone. Texas ranks first in “domestic migration,” meaning that folks from all over the country are choosing Texas over other states when it comes to finding a place to put down roots and call home. And for good reason! There is lots to love about our state, especially if you’re looking into 55 plus communities in Texas. In addition to the many benefits of active adult communities designed for folks just like you, you’ll find countless benefits that are unique to living in Texas. In fact, there are almost too many to list, but we wanted to take a moment to talk about a few of the biggest ones!

Before we get started, though, just what is an active adult community? Simply put, it’s not much different from any other residential community, except that it’s designed and built for a low-maintenance, retirement-friendly lifestyle, with the needs and interests of active adults over 55 first in mind. This often means less exterior maintenance and more amenities designed around your lifestyle. Now on to the four main benefits of active adult communities in Texas!

Texas has a lower cost of living and no state income tax. Living in Texas is affordable. In fact, the cost of living in Texas is 8% lower than the national average, and in Willis, Texas, where Chambers Creek is located, the cost of living is even better, at fully 16% lower than the national average. Plus, Texas has no state income tax, along with other tax-friendly policies, which means that your Social Security and other retirement income will go further, and you’ll be able to get more house for your money!

Great weather means year-round outdoor activities! Love hiking, biking, playing golf, tossing in a line at the local fishing hole, or just having a barbecue in your backyard? One of the great benefits that residents of 55 plus communities in Texas enjoy is our mild weather. You can spend just about every day outdoors if you so desire. Here at Chambers Creek, we’re working on many outdoor amenities exclusive to our active adult residents, including a nine-hole golf course, more than 20 miles of trails, and a marina with direct access to Lake Conroe, to name just a few.

Houston offers excellent healthcare. At Chambers Creek in Willis, Texas, you’re only 20 miles from the Woodlands and less than an hour from Houston’s world-renowned medical district, including Texas Medical Center (the largest medical complex in the world) as well as countless other hospitals, clinics, and specialists. In fact, Houston is home to one of the largest populations of doctors, researchers, and technicians on the planet, specializing in every kind of healthcare imaginable. In spite of all that expertise, healthcare in Houston is still affordable, with health costs averaging 3.5% below the national average according to data from the Council for Community and Economic Research.

So many home varieties! As more and more people choose to live in the Lone Star State, some of the best home builders in the nation are building an incredible variety of homes here. At Chambers Creek, the homes in our 55 plus community are designed and built by five premier Texas builders including Caldwell Homes, Beazer Homes, Coventry Homes, Del Webb, and Partners in Building. All of them are bringing beautiful new homes to life, and they feature a wide range of floor plans to fit every conceivable vision for an active lifestyle in Texas, including Smart home conveniences and front yard maintenance provided!
