As with all of our communities, we are building Burr Oak Commons with care and quality, so they offer all the high-end finishes of upscale single-family homes or condos for rent. The luxury apartment homes are built in duplex design, very similar to the design of condominiums.

Rent Vs. Buy

Home ownership has historically been synonymous with The American Dream. Many of our residents have already lived the dream of home ownership, and are now pursuing new things-like travel, passion projects, volunteering, grandchildren and other new experiences. Many empty-nesters are ready to create a new American Dream in the next phase of their lives. And for those who want the freedom, financial advantages and flexibility of a maintenance-free lifestyle, renting is the choice. More and more empty-nesters are making the decision to downsize and rent – to experience the more carefree lifestyle they've earned.
