Here's to a holly, jolly holiday time when friends and family gather to celebrate glad tidings and goodwill! As we reflect on our own fortunes, please take a moment to remember the military men and women serving far away from home, their loved ones, and less fortunate families who need our generosity. May each of our wonderful residents cherish what they have, while we cherish all of you for making your home with us!

No matter the reason, you can never have too much space for storage. Just give us a call to inquire. Prices and availability change daily so don't delay!
Holiday Resident Party
We saved the best for last. Our biggest and best Resident Party of 2012, will be our Holiday Party on Monday, December 3rd at the Resident Activity Center. Join us from 6:00 pm to 8:00 pm for a buffet of great food, drinks and best of all, door prizes! We will have lots of great things to give away and can't wait to see who will win this year! Will you have the lucky number? You can't win if you don't show up, so we look forward to seeing you there.
The holiday season is in full swing and we are noticing all of the pretty decorations that resident have displayed. It's so fun to ride around the community see all of the glistening lights and pretty trees. Just remember to use caution with your decorations.
Please turn off your lights and trees lights when you are not home and check your extension cords regularly to be sure they are plugged in tightly and are not hot. If you prefer a live tree, be sure to keep it watered to prevent it from drying out. We would not want any chance of a fire happening. Thanks to you all.
If you are one of the residents that prefers a live tree for the holiday, we would like to remind you to dispose of it properly. We will have an area beside the exterior wall of the compactor areas. If you will just pile the trees there, our Landscaping company will be taking them away for us. Please do not place them inside the compactor or in the recycling areas. Thank you.
Rent vs. Buying
In todays economy, with unpredictable lay offs and relocations, people are choosing to rent housing versus buying a home. Renting offers short term obligation for those people who are uncertain what their financial standing will be in the near future. If your company decides to downsize or relocate, you will not be locked into a 30 year mortgage. Most apartment communities offer flexible lease terms and options to break a contract if something unfortunate, like a job loss, happens.
Also, with renting an apartment, you will get the convenience of onsite amenities and benefits such as fitness centers, swimming pools, business centers and 24 hour maintenance. You will never have to replace an appliance or do any home repairs. This saves time and money.
Pay Online and Get Paid Back...
We are challenging our residents to sign up for Abberly Place’s online payment options. You will just need to go www.abberlyplace.com, and click on Residents and Pay Online. You will set yourself a profile so that each month, you can just log in, click and pay.
Our goal is to increase the number of online payers by 50 people each month. If we get an extra 50 people to sign up for our online payments, we will do a drawing from all online payers and the winner will receive $100 off the next month’s rent. It only takes a few minutes so there is nothing to loose and $100 to gain!
Short Term Rental Apartments

These are perfect for those out of town guests that want to come and visit for a long weekend or for the holidays.
