55 and Over Community in Greater Grand Rapids Offers Tremendous Perks

ROCKFORD, MI--(Marketwired - Oct 21, 2014) - Living at one Greater Grand Rapids 55 and over community is more than a unique opportunity for its residents. It's beneficial.

The Oaks of Rockford, a new home development at the northeast corner of M-57 (14 Mile Road, NE) and Ritchie Avenue, is a premier community for those looking to minimize the responsibilities of home ownership and space that requires upkeep, while still living in a luxurious, single-family neighborhood. Residents live in a community with those who have similar life experiences. The community is the only one of its kind in west Michigan.

One perk of the Oaks of Rockford, particularly for retirees, are the services included in home ownership costs. This premier community takes care of lawn maintenance, so instead of spending time and money on tasks that are physically taxing, residents can relax and enjoy the natural recreation spaces and planned activities of their new neighborhood.

The location of Oaks of Rockford also gives residents a wide variety of ways to continue their dynamic lifestyles. Downtown Rockford has a great small town feel, complete with upscale boutiques, specialty dining and local events. Of course, residents can also choose to venture to nearby Grand Rapids for the arts and culture of the city, all while returning home to a quiet community.

Financially, moving to the Oaks of Rockford makes sense for many. With a fixed monthly site-lease fee, residents know what to expect. Additionally, the prices of our new homes are very competitive in today's housing market. This means that those 55 and older can enjoy a new, quality, modern home at an affordable monthly cost.

Those interested in designing a new home are invited to visit our Model Corner, an area of the community with four different model homes. Standard features in the homes include 9 foot ceilings, stainless steel Whirlpool appliances, covered porches and our homes are very energy efficient. Through the end of November, prospective residents can receive $2,500 off the purchase of their new home, with some restrictions.

Oaks of Rockford is a premier manufactured home community for residents 55 and older. For more information, please contact Brian Fannon at 616-951-5885. Oaks of Rockford, 11640 Townsquare Boulevard, Rockford, Michigan 49341 www.oaksofrockford.com.
