Leasing Office is Closed
The Abberly office will be closed on December 24th and 25th in recognition of the holiday. We will reopen for regular hours on December 26th. Our office will also be closed on December 31st and January 1st for New Year’s. If you should have any maintenance emergency, please dial 919-772-6545 and follow the instructions for emergency maintenance.
If you need to turn in keys, drop off a lease renewal or rent check, please utilize the afterhours drop off. It is a gold slot to the right of the front door of our office.
The holiday season is in full swing and we are noticing all of the pretty decorations that residents 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.
New Fire Alarm System
for Phase 1
During the first couple of weeks of December, we will be having a new fire alarm system installed for the entire Phase 1 side of the community. Being that there are 13 buildings to replace and install new phone lines for, this could take up to two weeks.
The process should begin during the first week of December and should be completed by December 13th. They will need to test the system periodically during the process so we ask that you please bear with us during this time. We are excited to have a new system so that we can avoid all of the false alarms that we have had to deal with due to some wiring issues from the old system. This new system will operate on cellular signals as well as back up phone lines. We hope that this process will go smoothly and quickly. We appreciate your patience.
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.
Renew Your Lease Today!
We know that you all get busy, especially during the holidays. Don’t let the expiration date of your lease agreement sneak up on you. You should get a friendly reminder from our office when it’s time to renew. If your lease expires in December or January, and you still have not renewed, please stop by or call our office for a new lease to be sent to your door as soon as possible. We appreciate you choosing Abberly Place as your home and look forward to you staying for a while longer!
On the same note, we really want thank all of our residents who renewed their leases with us. The majority of residents whose leases expired in November and December, decided to stay and sign a new lease with us. We are so happy to have you here and truly appreciate you calling Abberly Place your home. We could not ask for better residents to serve! Again, a big Thanks to all!
Abberly Place Blood Drive
TAbberly Place will be hosting our first blood drive through American Red Cross. The drive will take place at the Resident Activity Center on Wednesday, January 8th, from 3:00 pm to 7:00 pm.
We are asking that residents who are willing and interested in giving blood, please sign up at our resident party on December 9th, or call our office and let us know to add you to the list.
It is not required to sign up beforehand, however, we would like to give the people at The Red Cross an idea of how many people to plan for. Thank you in advance!
American Red Cross
The American Red Cross is the nation’s largest blood collection organization, supplying approximately 40 percent of the blood and blood products used in our country.
Our blood donors are ordinary people – high school students, factory and office workers, business executives, parents and grandparents, and people from every walk of life.
But they share one thing – a generous spirit, a desire to give back to their community and help others. Blood donors play an integral role in the delivery of modern healthcare.
Many lifesaving medical treatments and procedures involve blood transfusions and would not be possible without a safe and reliable blood supply.
The Red Cross is also a leader in research and testing to protect the safety of the blood supply. We were among the first to develop and implement testing for many infectious diseases including, HIV, hepatitis B and C viruses, West Nile virus, and more recently the agent of Chagas disease.
If you already donate blood, thank you! You are making a lifesaving contribution that benefits accident victims, cancer patients, surgical candidates, children with blood disorders and many others.
If you have never donated blood, please consider doing so. Your donations are always in constant demand.
