People who join Fox Run’s priority list reserve their place in line for their preferred apartment home style at this popular Novi, Mich., community.

If you think a move to Fox Run could be in your future, Associate Executive Director Fred Moschetta says joining the community’s priority list is a no-risk way to keep your options open. 

Becoming a priority list member essentially secures your position on Fox Run’s waitlist for your preferred apartment home model.

“We encourage prospective residents to join the priority list, which requires a simple application, a refundable deposit of $1,000, and a nonrefundable processing fee of $150 per person,” Moschetta says. “Priority list members reserve a place in line for the apartment home of their choice. The priority list is a great opportunity to secure a future home at Fox Run.”

Personal Moving Consultant Kristine Kluge says there are currently about 650 people on Fox Run’s priority list, and another 75 to 100 retirees are expected to join before the end of this year. 

Presently, a variety of apartment homes are available, including a selection of new construction at Fox Run’s most recently opened residence building, Twin Pines. However, Kluge says there can be a wait of 6 to 12 months for some of the most popular apartment home models.

“There is no time like the present to start planning for your future at Fox Run,” Kluge says. “Plus, you’ll always be the first to know about upcoming happenings at Fox Run.”

Priority perks

One perk of priority list membership is invitations to special events on campus. Sales Manager Kristen Yaquinto says her team has planned several fun activities for this spring that local retirees won’t want to miss. 

In May, priority list members may attend the Resident Expo, a large event where residents showcase the many clubs and committees at Fox Run. 

“We have also added some bimonthly, smaller events for our newest priority list members,” Yaquinto says. “Members who have just joined get an opportunity to come in and learn what their next best steps are, and they can also get information about other benefits of being on the priority list, such as working with our personal moving consultant and having access to Erickson Realty and Moving Services.”

Erickson Realty and Moving Services provides complimentary coordination of all realty and moving needs, from real estate agent referrals and moving company recommendations to help with floor planning and interior decorating. 

Priority list members also receive complimentary consultations with Fox Run’s personal moving consultant.

“Our personal moving consultant has a vast list of trusted references for moving services, including real estate agents, downsizers, estate sale managers, antique appraisers, and professional movers to help make your move to Fox Run much easier,” Moschetta says.

Even if you’re not quite ready to make a decision about your retirement living options, Moschetta says becoming a priority list member still makes sense. 

“Actually, that is the best reason to join the priority list because it puts you in charge of managing when you want to move,” he says.

To get more information or to join Fox Run’s priority list, call to request an application. Moschetta says you can mail the completed application back or stop by campus to drop it off.
