Happy New Year Abberly Place Residents!!
We want to wish all of our valued residents a year of wonderful things to come. We hope for all of you to have good health and happiness throughout the year and we look forward to sharing 2013 with 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.

We have storage units available for those of you who need some extra space for the winter. Some people need a place to hide those special holiday gifts and others might just need to make room for all of the wonderful things received this holiday.
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!
Thank you to all of the residents who made Abberly Place shine during the holidays! We love to see others celebrate in their own special way.
However, now that the New Year is among us, we ask that you please remove any holiday decorations and lights from your patio and front door areas. Of course we do not mind if you keep your winter wreaths up and your normal décor year round. We enjoy you all making your home unique. Thanks again from your Abberly Staff.
This is just a reminder to all residents of Abberly Place. The compactor areas for trash disposal have gotten messy over the last couple of months. We do realize that during the holidays, most people accumulate extra trash with guests visiting and so forth. Also, this a time that people purge and get rid of old items to make room for new items.
Please remember that the compactors are enclosed in the brick areas and there are specific holes that trash should be discarded in. The Phase 1 compactor has an open area with no door and the Phase 2 compactor has a door that you will need to pull open. The other areas right outside the openings are for recyclable items such as aluminum, plastic and glass. Currently, there is a separate dumpster for cardboard as well. In the very near future, we will be converting the cardboard dumpster to an all purpose recycling container that all of the recyclable items can be placed in together. We will inform everyone when this takes place.
At no time is it okay to place items such as furniture, TVs other electronics, mattresses, etc. These items are to be taken to a landfill or donated to charity. We have to pay to have these items removed and they make the compactor area look very bad. Thanks you for abiding by the rules set by Abberly Place.

Rent vs. Buying
Did you know that most Americans automatically assume that they will reduce their tax bill if they buy a home? This myth is perpetrated by parents, accountants, teachers and real estate agents. The truth is that your mortgage interest has to more than the standard deduction to gain a tax advantage. If you itemize your deductions and they are greater than the standard deduction, you will save no more than $10 to every $35 that you pay in mortgage interest above and beyond the standard deduction.
