Editor’s Note: Recently, MoneyWise revealed its list of the 40 most frugal and friendly places to retire. In a bid to provide an idea of what housing inventory is available in these cities and towns, we’re taking a look at listings in each of the cities on the list.
Not everyone can spend $1 million or more on a second home, even if it’s with the idea that eventually you’ll retire there. So when MoneyWise’s list of 40 places to retire that are more budget-friendly came out, we were curious — what kind of homes could you find in these towns?
Last week, we looked at the 23rd city on the list — Thousand Oaks, Calfornia. This week, we look at Richardson, Texas, and found three great homes — all for less than $410,000.
“Richardson, Texas, has hot summers and mild winters, and this friendly city has a low crime rate,” MoneyWise said. “The cost of living is a bit higher than in some of the other cities on our list: you’ll need an income of around $72.000 to live comfortably here.”
“Richardson is located near Dallas, so you’ll have big-city amenities while living in a small community of just over 100,000. Three hospitals and 15 medical centers ensure you’ll never be without healthcare when you need it.”
