Retirees choose new Rockford community to downsize, enjoy amenities

A smaller upscale home, less maintenance responsibility and a secure community setting are all reasons residents are moving to the Oaks of Rockford.

Al and Carol Dick are among the first homebuyers to begin designing their own home at the community. They said after looking at different options for downsizing, including condominiums, the Oaks of Rockford was the perfect fit because they will own their home while still being provided services like lawn maintenance.

Perks like a beautiful 5,500 square foot clubhouse with full kitchen, party room, lounge and fitness facility aren’t the only reason the Dicks are looking forward to their new home. The pair said the manufactured homes at the community were different from any they had seen before. 7-1

“We were actually blown away by the quality when we went out to the Oaks of Rockford,” Al Dick said. “We didn’t realize that they were going to have a product with that kind of quality. With excellent counters, cherry cabinets, we felt like it would be something that would be a good investment for us.”

Homes at the Oaks of Rockford include two or three bedrooms, garages or carports and sodded lots. Homebuyers are able to choose from a variety of premier finishes. Besides the clubhouse, living at the pet-friendly community includes planned activities, onsite customer service and more than 40 acres of outdoor recreation space.

“We like the setting,” Carol Dick said. “We think it’s a very pretty area out there. The nature areas they’ve put aside make it very attractive. We’re looking forward to it, we’re just very happy with it.”
