Auburn Homes started out on the South side of Auburn with Auburn Mobile Home Park. This was the first community which opened in 1955. It was built from the ground up and grew over the next ten years. Then, in 1965, the West Edge Park was started. It, too, started out as open farmland and was built from the ground up. Interstate 69 wasn’t built yet and the West side of Auburn hadn’t yet been developed, but the community grew. After the Interstate was built and Auburn continued to grow, so did the community. The West Edge Park certainly became the “Uptown” community. The streets were named after the owners kids, grandkids, and influential developers of the community. Today, everything is still family owned and family operated. We work very hard to make living here affordable. We plow our own streets, patch our streets, do leaf collection, sub-meter water, and countless behind the scenes activities instead of hiring these things out. This keeps our total costs down which allows us to avoid lot rent increases.
We take pride in our clean community and encourage our residents to do the same. We expect homes and yards to be maintained and looking good. Everyone who moves in is screened with a background and criminal history check.

Why is there a “No Dogs” rule?
We get asked a lot why we don’t allow dogs in either community. We have a lot of third-shift workers in the community and barking dogs in close quarter living become a problem. Not allowing dogs prevents this problem. Sanitation is another reason. Many people do not clean-up after their dogs when they go on walks or after they let them out on a daily basis. We’ve chosen to avoid these problems altogether by not allowing dogs. Even after a community vote several years ago, the majority of the community voted to keep the “No Dogs” rule. We do have a Reasonable Restrictions Addendum for service animals only. You can review the requirements here.
Our “No Soliciting” rule stems off of similar aspects of the “No Dogs” rule. We don’t want solicitors bothering our residents, especially third-shift workers, during the day or evening. Also, many solicitors leave door hangers or other advertisements on doors and these items tend to fall off and end up blowing in the wind all over the community. We’ve chosen to avoid these inevitable problems altogether and do not allow solicitors.
When are the payment due dates?
Lot Rent - Lot rent, water, and sewer bills are always due on the 1st of every month. We understand that sometimes the 1st of the month lands on a weekend and we are not open. For this reason, we offer our residents grace until the 5th of each month to pay their lot rent without charging late fees. If rent payments are received after the 5th (even if the 5th lands on a weekend or holiday), a late fee of $1 per day, retroactive to the 1st, will be charged until the rent balance is $0.
Lease Payments - Lease payments are always due on the 15th of every month. We understand that sometimes the 15th of the month lands on a weekend and we are not open. For this reason, we offer our residents grace until the 25th of each month to pay their lease payment without charging late fees. If the lease payment is received after the 25th (even if the 25th lands on a weekend or holiday), a one-time late fee of $20 will be charged to the account.
Cash is not accepted for lot rent or lease payments.
We also do not accept credit cards or debit cards.
We only accept checks or money orders for payments.
Please have a separate check or money order for lot rent and lease payments. Please do not combine them.
After office hours, you can drop off payments in the drop box to the right of the office door. When using the drop box, please specify how you would like the payment applied.
