Developers of a premier Michigan active adult living community have made a statement in West Michigan. Oaks of Rockford is a new community built in a rural setting and with the amenities and perks many 55+ homebuyers seek in today’s market.

Near Rockford, Mich., in the Grand Rapids area, Oaks of Rockford has experienced swift sales. It sold out during the initial phases of development. Therefore, it recently opened 49 new home sites for potential residents, and plans continued expansion.

“There is a real community feel here, and that starts with the residents,” said Becka Kruer, general manager for Oaks of Rockford. “We feel very fortunate with the growth we’ve experienced, and the strong interest from potential residents who really understand what we’re doing and the value of this unique setting.”
