Phoenix-based NexMetro Communities is continuing the company’s massive Southwest expansion with the opening of the developers 8th Avilla community in McKinney, Texas. The unique leased home neighborhoods have been designed to meet the growing demand for the company’s innovative luxury leased home lifestyle. Avilla Northside will offer private luxury rental homes to lifestyle-consious consumers seeking a new home experience without the burdens of home ownership.

NexMetro has 2375 units completed or in development, and another 1390 units in predevelopment/entitlement, totaling nearly $700 million investment in the Phoenix, Dallas and Denver markets. The company also has additional plans to move into new key U.S. markets within the next 18 months.

“Our goals of expanding the Avilla portfolio by 50% within the next year is on track and we are very pleased with the response the leased home market is receiving”, said Josh Hartmann, NexMetro’s Chief Operating Officer. “There is major demand from Millennials and Baby Boomers for a unique rental concept that allows tenants to feel like they are living in a home, but without the responsibility often associated with home ownership. Our neighborhoods provide renters with these amenities and more,” said Hartmann.

Avilla Northside is located near historic downtown McKinney and is close to the Towne Lake Recreation Area, the Raytheon Company and abundant retail, services and restaurants. The new luxury rental community offers a truly unique alternative to the typical rental experience, said Ryan Griffis, vice president of operations for NexMetro’s Dallas Metro Division.

Avilla offers modern and stylish rental homes, with open and spacious floor plans, private entrances, outdoor patios and backyards. All of the floor plans boast 10-foot ceilings, allowing an abundance of natural light, and feature high-end finishes including granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, full-size washer and dryer and even a charging station for electric vehicles. Additionally, Avilla Homes are pet friendly and offer reserved covered parking and optional garages, plus the perks of neighborhood living, complete with a resort-style pool and beautifully landscaped recreation areas, all maintained by a professional management company, without mortgage payments or HOA fees.

Priced competitively with surrounding A-class apartments, the new fully furnished one, two and three-bedroom models are available for viewing by appointment by calling 214-585-9893 or visiting at .
