Sun City Texas Reviews (32)
The neighbors are all very friendly. They immediately stopped by (with masks), said hello, brought over the Sun City magazine, told us about everything, and we proceeded to start meeting in the backyard for Happy Hours! What fun!Yesterday, we swam in one of the many Olympic-sized outdoor pools. The pool
was beautiful, we walked in wearing masks, took out water bottles in cooler bags, and settled in on sanitized recliners. Everyone was very friendly, sporting sun hats and sunglasses, while wading in the five foot pool. We loved it!
Sun City is fantastic retirement community, for over 7,000 people to enjoy, since 1996. The walking paths, the hiking trails, the golf course, the 16 tennis courts, the pickle ball courts, the woodshop--all contribute to a fantastic planned community-where residents really care about their homes! Please give this a whirl--it is, by far-- the most wonderful place we have ever lived.
The homes are fine with a range in sizes & price. The amenities are what you come for- 3 gorgeous golf courses, 5 pools, 2 fitness centers, pickle ball, tennis, Bocce & clubs, clubs & clubs to join. Anything you want to do or learn you can do it here. Georgetown is such a great place to live & Austin is nearby ( but enough to do right around home. Never thought I’d live in Texas, being from the northeast, but wouldn’t live anywhere else.
many classes/clubs to be a part of! So glad we chose Sun City!
The construction on the other hand is not worth the price that you pay. Pulte Homes are not worth the money and the warranty is non existent. Pulte Construction gives a lot of LIP SERVICE but very little substance for your money. If I had the opportunity to do it over again I am not sure that I would purchase a Pulte built home.
The first shift occurred in 2011 when the property taxes and insurance premiums on the golf courses were shifted to the general community. Under activity based cost accounting, which is the gold standard for cost accounting, costs should be rooted in the activity that drives them. Clearly, if there were no golf courses in Sun City, Texas, there would be no property taxes and insurance premiums associated with golf.
In 2017 it gets even better. The golf reserve fund, which has been a separate reserve fund since the community opened 20 years ago, will be combined with the HOA reserve fund. Based on the 2017 reserve fund budget, unless the Sun City Texas Board of Directors finds an offset, the HOA dues will increase by $50 to $60 per household. Again, the cost that properly belongs with golf operations will be shifted to the general population even though 70 per cent of the residents in Sun City Texas don't play golf.
On the plus side the community is safe, clean, and neat. There are activities for everyone in Sun City. The trick is not to get caught up in too many of them.
Most of the people who live in the community are middle class achievers who have retired here for a variety of reasons. A substantial portion of the residents are retired military personnel. Most of the residents are nice, although we have our fair share of sore heads. Politically the community is very conservative.
Sun City Texas is a golf community. It has three golf courses. The golfers, who make up approximately 25 to 30 per cent of the residents, dominate the homeowners association (HOA), although the developer has the final say because the community is still being built out.
The developer announced recently his intention to expand the community from 7,500 houses to approximately 10,000 houses. The developer will dominate the HOA until 95 per cent of the planned houses are sold. Every time the developer expands the community, he moves the goal posts in terms of when the residents will have control of the HOA that they are funding.
My house is perfect for a retiree. It is only the second house that I have owned, but the construction has been satisfactory. No major problems! However, two of my neighbors have had huge problems with their patios. Unfortunately, they did not realize they had a problem until it came time to sell their house. They would not pass inspection because of the patio problem. They had to spend thousands of dollars to have the patios repaired. The consensuses of opinions around the neighborhood by people seemingly in the know is the patios were installed improperly, and the city building inspectors did not catch the flaws. Not surprisingly the developer accepted no responsibility for the flaws. Its in the small print. And the developer is a small print company.
The HOA is the most heavy handed organization that I have every encountered. As noted the developer controls it. If the interests of the residents clash with the interests of the developer, the developer wins. Hands down! The governance process is a sham.
During the period that I have lived here the golfers have been able to shift a substantial amount of golf expenses to the general community. In other words, contrary to what I was told when I moved to Sun City, everyone is getting an opportunity to pay for the golf. But the developer - again he controls the board - is smart. The cost shifting travels just below the community radar scope. Most people don't even know that many of the golf costs have been shifted onto their backs. Most of the residents don't understand accounting or how to read the financial statements. Even worse, most the residents are apathetic. They just want to enjoy their retirement.
This is the first time that I have lived in an HOA community. It will be the last.
This community is like living at a resort but even more friendly. Moving here was absolutely the best decision we could have made for retirement living.
Homes are good quality when you consider that they are "volume-built" and NOT custom.
Development has an excellent financial foundation and so will offer long term stability, stable HOA costs and the ability to afford good upkeep for the common areas.
Only down side is that the image is that of a retirement community when it is really a resort!
The view is beautiful, we have all that we need here.
the homebuilder is not up to my standard likeing, I think because they hire alot of workers that donot have the experence or work schooling to do the job.,lots of the mistakes are hidden.
With all that is said, this is the most beatifull place to lived, they have spend lots of time and money to make this place one of the best Sun-City place to lived. Come and see , we welcome you.
