Sun City Texas - Now Open
The benefits of our Homeowners Association
One of the best things about living in Sun City Texas is you can relax knowing your community will keep on looking as beautiful as the day you first saw it. That's because your Homeowners Association (HOA) dues help pay for maintaining all of your community's common areas and amenities. Not only does that help protect your property values, it ensures you'll always be proud to call Sun City Texas your home.
Items covered by the HOA
- Use of the amenities (except for golf), the maintenance of all common areas and other Association obligations

Does the HOA survey residents to find out about new interests?
Every year we do a 3rd party professional survey to all residents to make sure that residents have a chance to voice any concerns or make recommendations. Some examples of things we’ve added in the past based on resident feedback are the dog park, softball field, pickle ball courts, expanded wood shop and expanded arts and crafts facilities.
Are all the community activities included in the fees?
