Six Basement Homes Remaining at Brannon Oak Farm

Cumming active adult community
Active Adults, do you want the luxury of active adult living, but with a home that still has plenty of room for living and entertaining? Then hurry in to TheOrchards of Brannon Oak Farm! This Cumming community from The Orchards Group has just six basement home opportunities remaining!

The Orchards of Brannon Oak Farm is the first of the builder's active adult communities to include basement home options because previously the builder hadn't seen a demand or need for basements among their active adult buyers.

However, demand for more space has been increasing over the past year, and now the builder is down to just three single family homes with a basement and three townhome villas with a basement.

With just these limited opportunities left, The Orchards Group encourages interested buyers to visit the community today. They are already seeing interest in many of the remaining basement homes, and they expect to be down to just three within the next 60 days.

Basement homes cost upwards from $300,000 depending on if the space is unfinished or finished. Finished spaces are great for guest bedroom suites, media rooms and wet bars. Plus, having a basement provides a great opportunity for buyers to also include a deck or elevated screened in porch on their home.

In addition to these basement opportunities, buyers can also choose from non basement villa townhomes, single family homes and ranch condominiums all priced from the $240,000s.

Active adult residents enjoy a fabulous lifestyle with amazing amenities including two pools, outdoor gathering spaces, a grand clubhouse and clubs and activities. The community's Cumming location is also close to GA 400, dining, shopping, entertainment, recreation and healthcare.

Life Insurance can Save your Family from Debt Later

Save your loved ones from debt with life insurance
While it's not something people like to think about, death is one of the very few sure things in this world. If you were to die tomorrow, would your family fall into debt without your emotional, physical and
financial help? There is a new article to help you understand the importance of life insurance in the new article on the Equifax Finance Blog, "Four Reasons to Have Life Insurance Now."

Life insurance pays for a number of things, including burial expenses, which are always growing larger. These expenses include casket, funeral services, burial and other services, which can cost up to $10,000 or more in some cases. The financial cost of burial alone can often be enough to put families into debt who weren't prepared for it, and the additional problems of not having your income will only add up to a huge debt if not prepared for. Life insurance benefits may seem high, but they are there so your family avoids there huge debts and has the time to set up a financial way to deal with your passing.

The Orchards Groups’ Active Adults Collect Items for Troops

The Orchards Group is proud to provide its active adults opportunities to not only spend time together, but to also come together to give back to their community and the nation. At The Orchards at Crabapple, an active adult community in Roswell from The Orchards Group, homeowners recently collected items to send to American troops overseas.

In only three weeks, homeowners collected over 23 cartons worth of supplies for the troops. These supplies were delivered to the Alpharetta American Legion post 201 before being shipped overseas.

"Our community, the first development built by The Orchards Group back in 1998, is filled with generous and patriotic residents. It was amazing what we collected; we even had to fill the back of one neighbor's truck to deliver everything!" said Tom Siracusa, homeowner and organizer of the efforts.

Residents of The Orchards at Crabapple first came together to collect items back in 2009, and were so successful that they decided to do it again this year.

"It is great to know that groups in the states still recognize the sacrifices of the troops and continue to support them," said Adam L. Mortensen, lieutenant colonel for the U.S. Air Forces and Program H Mission Commander.

If you're looking for the ultimate active adult lifestyle, be sure to visit TheOrchards of East Cherokee in Woodstock and TheOrchards of Brannon Oak Farm in Cumming. Both offer low-maintenance lifestyles with plenty of amenities, community service opportunities and activities.
