Here’s Why 55 Plus Communities in Texas are Financially Friendly
From no income tax to unbeatable included costs
When it comes to finding the perfect state for you or your loved one to retire in, there are many factors to consider. You’ll want to look for an ideal climate– take into consideration temperature, humidity, precipitation and the local landscape. You’ll also want to consider options for entertainment, such as dining, shopping, movie theaters, museums and historical sites.
But arguably one of the most important factors to consider when looking for the ideal retirement location is affordability. However, the team at Sunshine Retirement Living believes you should never have to sacrifice quality for affordability when choosing your retirement community! That’s one reason we think our communities in Texas–The Clairmont and The Continental in Austin, and Brook Ridge and The Gardens at Brook Ridge in Pharr–are so amazing for seniors.

Texas is tax-friendly for retirees. Although by definition retirees have graduated from the workforce, income tax is still a consideration. Texas has no state income tax, meaning that Social Security retirement benefits and all other types of income are tax-free at the state level.
Sunshine Retirement Living Communities in Texas all have multiple floor plans that vary in price, allowing residents to choose which is the most suitable for their lifestyle. Additionally, they offer month-to-month leases, rather than long-term leases, to make it easier on residents and allow for more flexibility.
Sunshine Retirement leases in Texas cover the costs for so many amazing things, with floor plans that fit a variety of budgets. These plans include utilities, amenities and other perks at no additional cost, resulting in savings across the board. You can even compare your current costs to the costs incurred at Texas Sunshine communities by using our handy ‘Calculator’ tab on each community’s webpage. Here are costs that are included for all of our residents:
Utilities – Our leases cover utilities such as electricity, water, sewer, trash disposal, cable services, gas, lawn care and landscaping so that you don’t have to keep up with them.
Health and Safety – To ensure the health and safety of our residents, we suit our living spaces with fire alarm systems, including sprinklers and smoke detectors. We also have professional and caring staff available to residents at all times to provide assistance. Additionally, we offer 24/7 dining as well as daily wellness and fitness programs to keep residents in tip-top shape. We also provide flexible transportation to shopping and appointments to ensure our guests arrive safely.
Home Maintenance and Upkeep – We provide home maintenance at our Texas retirement communities, whether residents need their toilet fixed, their locks repaired, or whatever else may be of their concern. In addition to maintaining living spaces, we provide weekly cleaning services to keep residents’ personal spaces in pristine condition.

Gardening is a relaxing, productive activity that can help lower stress and support our mental health. But just because the weather is getting cooler doesn't mean we have to wait until next year to enjoy gardening. Fall is the best time to plant perennial flower bulbs, which bloom year after year!
Check with your local nursery for recommendations on what to plant. There are a range of choices--daffodils, tulips, allium, and hyacinth are 4 of the hardiest perennials for all planting zones. When spring comes around, you can look for your budding flowers!
Food is a critical component of not only our health, but our overall happiness and well being. That’s why we place a large emphasis on the importance of healthy eating. The food we eat every day plays a huge role in our brain function, and that doesn’t change as we get older. In fact, it’s even more important!: ow.ly/FQ7O50KWcuY
