Forget Your Parents' Retirement Criteria- Boomers Are Different Sun City Texas At Its Best     I was browsing the news online recently and clicked an intriguing headline, The Upside of Aging, in USA Today, 6/28/2014, Money.  The expert opinions didn’t surprise me, although this isn’t our parents’, or advertisers' version, of life after 55.Boomers and slightly older adults we see today are healthier, more active, productive, and more enthusiastic about new ventures than previous generations. Born between 1946 and JFK’s assassination in 1964, most are better educated and financially secure. “… Twin studies have estimated that approximately 20-30% of an individual’s lifespan is related to genetics, the rest is due to individual behaviors and environmental factors which can be modified.” ac...

    Shred-it Today in Sun City Texas 4/29/14         Open to any Sun City Texas resident from 8AM until noon, you can bring your unwanted sensitive documents to the Cowan Creek amenity center parking lot and have them shredded on the spot.  This no intended for recycling materials, but rather papers that contain personal information like social security number, back account numbers, brokerage accounts, or medical information.     We sometimes become lulled into thinking of identity theft as an Internet problem, but paper documents are still the number one way thieves steal information.   There is still time left, so bring your box of shred material to Cowan Creek amenity center is Sun city Texas, today before noon and have it shredded, no charge.

  Sun City Texas Housing Market Snap Shot April 2014           The month of April has not yet closed, but it is clear sales volume is going to be significantly below prior year.   Month to date there are only 15 homes sold compared with 34 homes sold at this time one year ago.  The average sales price per square foot of those sold is $142/sf.   Why is this occurring and what does it mean? Here are the bullet point to consider:   The market is transitioning back into a more normal market Skyrocketing prices are behind us & more stabilized pricing will prevail (April month to date average = $142/ft) Inventory is increasing (78 homes on market this morning) Sales volume is down (only 15 homes so far this month compared to 34 this time last year) Sun City Texas Volume is directly tied to bu...

  Want to Challenge Your Sun City Texas Tax Appraisal?        If you have received you tax bill for 2013 and want to challenge your Sun City Texas (located in Williamson Couny), tax appraisal, you have two choices.   First you can based you challenge on the valuation being wrong. Second, you can base your challenge on inequity with other similar homes   These are the only two methods recognized by the county.  A challenge based on need or any other argument will not be successful, as these are the only two challenges Williamson County recognize.   If you want to make your case based on valuation , you have an uphill battle.  Texas is a non-disclosure state and the actual sales prices for sold properties are not publically reported.  If you think the valuation is genuinely incorrect, hir...
