After months of anticipation, Eagle’s Trace is welcoming a wave of new residents. The West Houston Erickson Living community’s newest residence building, Amarillo Terrace, is now open.

Dan Wagner marvels at how far technology has come.

“The kid in me still can’t believe I can watch a movie in my living room,” he says.

Shoppers are out in force this time of year, hunting for the perfect gifts for loved ones. At Eagle’s Trace, the Erickson Living community in West Houston, there’s another group out in force that embraces the spirit of giving all year long.

Eagle’s Trace offers prospective residents $10,000 off the entrance deposit on select apartments in its newest residence building, Amarillo Terrace, if they settle before the end of the year.

Conventional wisdom says the holiday season is busy enough. Why add moving to the mix?

There are a few good reasons why the year’s end might be an ideal time to list and sell a home. Here are five to consider:

1. Fewer homes are on the market.

With the November elections just days away, it won’t be long until Trump vs. Clinton is tucked away in the history books.

Dottie Williams recalls the first time she saw Ukrainian Easter eggs.

“I was in the second grade, living in Illinois, and my classmate George brought eggs to school,” says Dottie. “I still remember holding them in my hand.”

L.O. and Joyce Wray are moving to Amarillo Terrace, the newest residence building at Eagle’s Trace, in mid-November.

Retirement has proven to be one adventure after another for L.O. and Joyce Wray.

After a 30-year career with Amoco (formerly Standard Oil Company), L.O. retired, and the couple moved from Houston to Wimberley, embracing life in the Texas Hill Country.
