Thankful Memories


Thankful Memories Banner

At Invitation Homes, we believe a home is only as good as the lives lived, and memories created, within it.

Our residents shared with us some of their favorite memories in their Invitation Homes:

  • Watching my kids make friends in the neighborhood and seeing the joy on their faces as they ride bikes, go to the neighborhood park and even spend the night at each other’s house.
  • My wife and I got married in the back yard and we had 100 people here.
  • Our first night in our own home not the apartment that we lived in for 30 +yrs. We had such a nice family dinner where we all were able to sit together and eat as a family.
  • I was doing yard work and the neighbor came over and introduced himself to me. It gave me a sense of being ‘home’ and like our neighborhood is our community and we can rely on each other.
  • Our grandbabies camping out in the living room with us, in front of the fireplace.
  • The openness and bright atmosphere here makes living here peaceful. I’ve never felt more at home in any place I’ve lived like I am here. Truly feel like GOD placed here for a reason.

  • Our house is the “go to” hang out spot of our friends – lots of socializing here because the location and structure is great!
  • Laying out and listening to music in the back yard with our dogs running around having fun!
  • This home was a huge help in me finding my independence as a quadriplegic.
  • My daughters love the house, my oldest daughter was afraid to talk to the kids from the neighborhood and she finally decided to be brave and talk to them, now, they are best friends, all the kids play together and they take care of each other, play inside the house and outside because there is plenty of room.
  • My first home with my high school sweetheart after thirty years.
  • Our first night in our own home not the apartment that we lived in for 30 +yrs. We had such a nice family dinner where we all were able to sit together and eat as a family.

  • The day my son and I moved in he was so happy to have a yard to play in and to be able to have a place to put his basketball ball goal, he was so thankful.
  • We lived in a condo forever before this and actually having trick or treaters and spending it with family was wonderful.
  • Family get-togethers are so much easier to have “all” of us together. Plenty of space to cook and hang out!
