Property Spotlight: Townhomes at Creek Park
Owned and managed by Bright Community Trust, Townhomes at Creek Park was built in Dunedin in 2008. Each home is built with superior construction and amenities. Creek Park got its name from its surroundings: a nature preserve that features beautiful creeks and parkland.
Choose between 3-bedroom, 1,600 square feet, or 4-bedroom, 2,000 square feet homes. Both 3- and 4-bed homes have 2.5 baths, a 2-car garage, and a private back yard.
Phillipe Beau – Creek Park Asset Manager
Phillipe reports that despite the process taking a bit longer than a typical rental – one to two weeks from application to move-in – “tenants are excited but patient, finding it worth their time as they can save $200 to $500 per month compared to market rates”.
When approved, tenants sign a one year lease, a walk-through is conducted, and final touches are completed at the house to welcome the new family.
“I am attached to the success of Creek Park, Phillipe says, because I initiated its design with the original developer, and I worked at its completion for Bright Community Trust; so my involvement goes further than a typical property manager in the sense that I was involved in design, construction, rental and management. It facilitates the maintenance part to know how the homes were built, and to be able to point out the qualities to the tenants. I am able to relay my attachment to the property to the tenants who, in turn and historically at Creek Park, have maintained their rented home remarkably well.”
Our partners own and manage 482 rental units in the Trust, and Bright Community owns and manages 9 townhouses. The future holds 18 new, 3 bedroom, (some two floor) townhomes, and other, one floor villas with about 1,400 square feet of living space.
