No, wait, Sun City most definitely has age restrictions! All of the communities that I mentioned do, due to the Fair Housing law.

If you don't want age restrictions, there are lots of other neighborhoods in Georgetown that would fit the bill that aren't these kinds of communities.

Oh! I am little concerned with the age restrictions because it's harder to rent out the house for the years that we don't need it. The more I think about this, very few (actually I don't know any) people over 55 would rent. We probably should look into the regular residential areas.

JMO but that price range will be hard to find a good neighborhood, we started at $170 and ended up paying $225 to find a better neighborhood & school.

Agreed - that was my experience as well.

You may want to look into this further. Quite a few people do rent out their homes in age restricted communities, either because they buy in anticipation of later retirement or because they buy, move in, and then the inevitable happens and their heirs rent the house out until it can be sold.

Hello there, I was reading your reply to Wimberley00 and wanted to get some more information from you about RR. We are looking into buying a house in RR. We have two girls - 10 and 6 years old and are looking for a small(er), family-friendly, community. We've lived in the North-West and overseeas and a more liberal community would suit us just fine. We are looking for a place that has parks, swimming pools, sports, visiting children's theaters, etc. and that is close to amusement parks and major airport. RR got really good review and votes one of the best places to live in the country. We are not looking for a large piece of land and do not mind a cookie-cutter house as long as it has a yard and is in a safe neighborhood. We are not looking to spend a fortune, and would like to find a 3/2 house. Any thoughts, suggestions>Would really appreciate it. Thanks
