OKEMOS, MI--(Marketwired - May 2, 2013) - Land-lease communities provide homeowners with affordable housing in a great neighborhood environment. Residents own their homes, but lease their home sites, freeing their budgets from the additional expense of land ownership.
According to the Michigan Department of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs, there are 1,092 licensed communities with a total of 178,267 home sites throughout those communities in the state of Michigan. Communities offer many advantages over traditional neighborhoods. Residents enjoy all of the features and services that community living has to offer, including a warm, friendly atmosphere, amenities such as swimming pools, community clubhouses, playgrounds, ball fields, walking/biking trails and RV storage -- facilities you won't find in most subdivisions or even condominium developments. Michigan land-lease communities provide a safe and supportive environment for you and your family, in a place you can trust.
Desaney McMillon, manager of Rolling Hills Community in Battle Creek, Mich., winner of the 2013 Manufactured Housing Institute "Land-lease Community of the Year" award, prides herself in having a fun and safe community for her residents. On top of fun events like ice cream socials, Rolling Hills also provides residents with a clubhouse, fitness center, and staff on hand to help with financing, purchasing, and selling homes within the community.
"You get the most bang for your buck, and home owners love the community!" says McMillon about the benefits of community living. With a current occupancy rate of 96.5 percent, the highest in five years, Rolling Hills is great example of a thriving Michigan community.
Community living is a great lifestyle choice. Residents live surrounded by neighbors who look out for each other, enjoy each other's company at planned events, and give new meaning to the word "neighborhood."
