Just curious to hear from everyone, who has picked out their retirement homes, property, or areas they intend to retire. The wife and I decided to purchase a .56 acre lot, in Hot Springs Village, Arkansas, the newer section. We couldnt pass on the price, because the sellers were desperate to sell. We have about 4 years to think about clearing the lot, then start building our house, before I retire. My wife's relatives live in the older section of the village. The Houston area is just not where we want to be. If we change our minds, on this location, we can easily sell it for 9-10 times what we paid, once the economy swings back up. Me, I would prefer 50-60 acres in the country, by some mountains. But, I want the wife to be happy too. .
