Jim Jacobi, president of Parkland Communities, joins the Atlanta Real Estate Forum Radio podcast to share an overview of the company, the benefits of renting and upcoming communities coming soon to metro Atlanta. Jacobi chats with host Carol Morgan on the All About Real Estate segment.
Boasting nearly two decades of experience in the home building industry, Jacobi went out on his own in 2005, formed his first home building company in 2007 and the past year has focused heavily on the build-to-rent market sector with his current company, Parkland Communities.
Parkland Communities, a development company, is the parent company of Parkland Residential, a build-to-rent (BTR) division, and Parkland Homes, a for-sale division.
Jacobi said, “We’ve been working really hard recently developing and getting land ready to bring lots of communities to the market!”
Coming soon to Warner Robins, Grove Landing by Parkland Residential is the very first single-family BTR community in the area. The community will feature 317 home lots and impressive amenities, including a communal cabana, resort-style pool, large playground, ample green space and much more! Offering two, three and four-bedroom home plans, prospective renters will enjoy beautiful homes with spacious layouts and welcoming front porches. Grove Landing is thoughtfully situated near Robins Air Force Base, which employs approximately 24,000 people and is known as the largest employer in the state of Georgia. The community is also in proximity to other fantastic employment opportunities, including the largest Frito-Lay manufacturing plant in the country.
Jacobi said, “We have done lots of market analytics for Warner Robins and found there is a strong job growth in the area.”
Clearing up the misconception of renting and the types of people who rent homes, Jacobi explains that most of the renters within his build-to-rent communities are renters by choice. For many, renting boasts more benefits than homeownership, including offering a maintenance-free lifestyle, flexibility and financial stability. When comparing the overall costs of renting versus owning a home, renting is the more monetarily beneficial option in today’s market.
Jacobi said, “It is proven with multiple studies that it is cheaper to rent than it is to own…in fact, it is on average approximately $850 less to rent than it is to own a home in the United States right now.”
