Texas Among Best States to Retire

If you’re nearing retirement age, you may be planning a move to a new home base that will better suit your new lifestyle. Dreaming of warmer weather, fun city amenities to spend your days enjoying, or perhaps living closer to your grandkids? No matter what your reasons are for moving during retirement, you are sure to find a great quality of life in Texas.

A new study by Bankrate puts Texas among the best states to retire in 2022. After analyzing numerous factors including cost of living, public health, culture, weather, and crime, Bankrate rated Texas as the No. 7 best state for retirement.

The Lone Star State received high marks for affordability and weather. Another bonus for retirees: Texas doesn’t have a state income tax.

Where to Retire in Texas

Ready to make your move to Texas as a new retiree? The Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex is among the leading magnets for out-of-state movers thanks to its world-class entertainment destinations, top doctors and hospitals, and convenient access to domestic and international flights at two major airports. The list of fun activities and places you can explore in DFW when you retire is limitless!

Retirees can find unique housing opportunities in 55+ communities by Ladera, a leading developer of DFW retirement communities. Featuring new homes in Fort Worth, Prosper, Mansfield, Rockwall, and coming soon to Little Elm, Ladera active adult communities are specifically geared around the retiree lifestyle and feature semi-custom, low-maintenance homes and exclusive amenities including community events and full-featured amenity centers with workout rooms, gathering spaces, pools, pickleball courts and putting greens, grilling stations, walking trails, and much more.

Ladera communities are smaller, gated, and more intimate neighborhoods compared to many other traditional 55+ communities in DFW. Our communities are designed this way so homeowners get to know their neighbors and don’t have to wait in line to use popular amenities like exercise machines and pickleball courts.

Lawn maintenance is a chore of the past in a Ladera community. Each owners’ association manages and cares for exterior maintenance on every Ladera home, including year-round landscape maintenance of the front yard and courtyard areas.

Choosing the Right Home

Many homebuyers hope to downsize from older, bigger homes when they finally retire. Less home maintenance means more time and more money to spend your days doing what you love most.

But downsizing in retirement doesn’t have to mean moving to an inferior home. Ladera Texas homes offer a variety of single-story, 1.5-story, and 2-story floorplans with multiple elevation choices and highly personalized design choices. The ability to build a semi-custom home results in a stunning variety of homes throughout the neighborhood, helping each resident settle down in their perfect home.

We invite you to discover why Texas is among the best states to retire by moving to a Ladera DFW community in 2022! New DFW homes are now selling in Ladera at Tavolo Park, Ladera Rockwall, Ladera at The Reserve, and Ladera at Prosper.
