Garber Communities’ A Better Place, a premiere all-ages manufactured home community in DeLand, is nearing completion of construction at its large expansion.

The popular affordable living community, located at 1305 Nature’s Woods Blvd, is currently at 100 percent capacity. To meet demand, A Better Place is adding 45 new home sites, bringing the total size of the community to 152 sites. Six new homes arrived on site last week, and will be move-in ready by December 2021.

These award-winning Champion built homes will feature three bedrooms, two baths, a spacious front porch, carport and shed.

According to Pete Wood, Director of Operations for Garber Communities, “These homes were designed so residents can enjoy Florida outdoor living at its best. With homes starting at just $140,000 and with multiple financing options available, we’ve already seen a tremendous amount of interest, including several sales before the homes even arrived.”

New homebuyers will have the opportunity to purchase model homes or select a lot and customize a new home to fit their unique style and needs.

Along with the new models, the community’s landscaping is being completely reimagined into a lush, tropical oasis. Towering palms, magnolia trees and Japanese holly trees provide a gorgeous canopy of shade around the entrance and beautiful pavers and a fountain have been added.

“We’re excited to offer this amazing community to even more homebuyers,” said Lamont Garber, owner of Garber Communities. “Considering our close proximity to historic downtown DeLand, we’re excited to watch A Better Place continue to grow and flourish.”

Situated just outside of downtown DeLand, A Better Place offers direct access to everything the town has to offer. Historic DeLand is known for its incredible architecture – large red-brick buildings, Greco-Roman columns and tall oak trees draped in Spanish moss giving off the feeling of old Florida. Downtown DeLand was voted America’s Best Main Street and is known for its lively outdoor eateries, antique shops and art galleries. Entertainment options are endless with the Athens Theater and year-round festivals, museum exhibits, farmer’s markets and art events.

“DeLand is home to an abundance of nightlife, culture and activities,’’ said Garber. “A Better Place meets the need for quality affordable housing in this popular area. With resort-style amenities for families, singles and seniors alike to enjoy, it’s no surprise our community is as popular as it is.”

In addition to its ideal location, A Better Place offers many amenities for residents. Its newly-remodeled clubhouse features a billiards room, library and fitness center. Take advantage of the Florida sunshine no matter the season at the heated swimming pool, covered pavilion and picnic area, and horseshoe court. If you’re an RV or boat owner, storage is available on site.

The second phase of new homes will be ready by spring 2022 and the third phase will be complete by summer 2022.
