A New Year, A New Home: The Best Reasons to Move to a HomeFirst™ Community in 2016
With 2015 drawing to a close, many people are already starting to look ahead to what lies ahead for them in 2016. Lots of people have their new year’s resolutions to do things like start exercising more, start eating better, quit smoking, or find a better job. But what if you’d like to make an even bigger lifestyle change, like move to a new home? Of course, manufactured homes are wonderful to move into at any time of year, but if you’d like to start the year with a completely new slate, buying or renting a manufactured home in a HomeFirst™ community is an excellent way to do so.
Get Your Finances in Order
If one of your new year’s resolutions is to get your finances under control, moving into a HomeFirst™ community is a very smart idea. Manufactured homes are well known for being an extremely affordable housing option. No matter what your budget is, there’s a manufactured home for you. Even a more expensive manufactured home will still cost significantly less than a traditional site-built house and your monthly payments could be less than what you’d pay to rent an apartment. So by living in a manufactured home, you’ll be able to put more money into savings or maybe even spend on something more fun.
Not only will you have the benefit of being able to save more money, you’ll also be able to get free financial counseling from GreenPath Debt Solutions. Whether you’d like help setting up a simple household budget or need help avoiding bankruptcy or getting your debt under control, you’ll be able to talk to a counselor from GreenPath free of charge.
Start a Healthier Lifestyle
Every year, millions of people all over the world vow to start leading a healthier lifestyle when the new year begins. If you’re one of them, you’ll have plenty of resources to do so right in your community. One of the most popular amenities our communities have to offer are our 24-hour fitness centers, available to HomeFirst™ residents at no extra cost. No need to pay for an expensive gym membership or your own fitness equipment. You won’t even have to find a gym that’s open on your schedule. Everything you need to stay fit is right in the community.
If you like to get out of the gym, our communities have athletic courts like basketball, volleyball, or baseball. And during the summer months, you’ll love being able to swim in the community pool. Or you can always just take a walk around the community. The possibilities are endless!
Make New Friends
When you live in a HomeFirst™ community, you’ll also have tons of opportunities to make new friends. Whether you stop by the community clubhouse for an event like bingo night or ice cream social, meet another parent while watching your kids at the playground, run into a neighbor at the swimming pool, or simply stop by a neighbor’s home to say hi, you’re bound to meet lots of new people who could very well end up becoming some of your best friends. And wouldn’t it be wonderful to have the new year full of new friends?
Our Communities are Great for Children
Moving into a HomeFirst™ community isn’t just a good move for you, it’s also a good move for your children, too. No matter which community you choose to live in, you’ll have the assurance of knowing your kids will be able to go to school in a quality school district. Kids in our Woodland Ridge community, for example, are able to go to school in South Lyon Community Schools, one of the top school districts in all of Michigan. The New Haven Community School District near Meadow Creek and Riverbrook is unique for their commitment to being environmentally friendly and their “Supportive Tuesdays” program to provide extra help to students who need it. Holly Area Schools near Springrove have outstanding music and athletic programs, plus lots of chances to participate in advanced placement programs.
