What Makes a State Retirement Friendly?

Several factors go into consideration when deciding if an area is a good place to retire. Income tax is one of the greatest influences and played a large role in Smart Asset’s rankings. The lower the tax rate on retirement income the better, and Pennsylvania is one of only 12 states that boast a 0% retirement income tax rate. Sales tax also contributed to the overall rankings, with Pennsylvania’s sales tax rate of 6.3% helping the state to rise higher in the rankings. Other contributing factors included:

  • Average effective property tax rates
  • Median annual housing costs
  • Non-housing cost of living
  • Average annual cost of a silver health insurance plan
  • Number of art, entertainment, and recreation establishments per 100,000 residents
  • Number of doctors’ offices per 10,000 residents

Homeownership may actually prove beneficial in retirement because of the equity and security provided by the rising value of homes; such financial backing allows those living on a limited income more freedom in the event of unforeseen expenses, such as extensive medical costs.

Owning a home is also less expensive than renting in most states, including Pennsylvania, which further aids retirees on fixed incomes. To learn more about the benefits of owning a home in retirement, or homes for sale in Wayne, PA, please contact the team at Sage Realty directly.

Featured Testimonial

I moved to PA from Washington State and learned that realty is local. There were things that I thought I knew about buying a house previously but boy was I wrong. Linda was very patient with me but also did not hold back when she saw potential problems, and always made sure I had all the information I needed before making a decision and didn’t belittle concerns to just get a sale. Above all else, and this was the most important thing to me, Linda has a high ethical standard, is very transparent in her approach and is someone I trusted making one of the biggest decisions of my life. – A.
