Sales in Opelika’s new active adult community continue to soar
“Historically, December is considered a slow month for real estate sales – but you would not know that by all the activity out at The Springs of Mill Lakes as we are coming to the end of 2017,” says Allen Harris, developer of The Springs of Mill Lakes, the beautiful new 55+ community of 134 single-level homes in Opelika that hosted its Grand Opening in June 2017.
“Currently, we have homes closing, lot closings, new lot reservations and new construction underway and we continue to welcome many future homeowners, real estate professionals and visitors to our beautiful community despite the winter weather.”
The Springs of Mill Lakes is celebrating outstanding sales results since they opened for sale six months ago. To date, nine properties have sold, and the residents have already moved into the community. For the first three months of 2018, 10 additional closings have been scheduled, and 23 lot reservations are ready to go to contract — evidence of the great demand for this type of active lifestyle community near Auburn, one of the best university towns in the country.
The two new home builders in The Springs, Harris Doyle Homes and Homeworks of Alabama, have completed an additional five brand new homes ready now for buyers who are eager to move in immediately. Harris Doyle Homes plans to construct two additional homes in early 2018, featuring plans that have not yet been built in The Springs, the Sheffield and the Telford but are available online.
The community’s natural setting includes two 3.5-acre mature lakes, a wandering creek, and waterfalls, and The Springs of Mill Lakes Homeowners Association has purchased 45 acres that border the neighborhood on the west. This property forms a perpetually protected wildlife sanctuary open to the residents.
Living surrounded by nature is one of the major draws of this beautiful 55+ community, but so are the amenities at The Springs of Mill Lakes. They include a splendid clubhouse, The Owl’s Roost, as well as a zero entry pool, a pickleball court, and an event lawn.
