Bunker Hill Village, Forbes wrote, has a number of attractions for wealthier retirees, among them:

  • A strong average home price of $1.4 million and median household income of $200,000.
  • Around 3,600 residents in just 1.5 square miles.
  • Easy access to Houston’s world-class healthcare facilities, along with the area’s culture scene, the Gulf of Mexico and two commercial airports.
  • And finally, the lack of a state income tax in Texas.

Writing for Biz Journals, Emily Wiklinson wrote that Forbes considered a number of factors in selecting its top 25 communities, among them median household income, average home price, population (and the percentage of that population over 65), and quality of life regarding things such as weather and proximity to culture, healthcare and airports.
