The Missing Middle

Where people want to live today

In the past, there have been limited choices between renting an apartment and buying home. Urbana YardHomes offer the perfect solution with cottages that rent like an apartment. The YardHome® concept was created in 2017 with the first project, – Urbana at Goodnight Ranch – which completed construction in 2020.​

Urbana YardHomes are rental houses with a modern upscale character, optimized open floor plans, smart home technology, 250 sq. ft. backyards and covered parking. They also share amenities like swimming pools, pet parks, walking trails and more. So in the end, residents enjoy the best of privacy and community built into every Urbana community.​

It’s no wonder Urbana YardHomes are where people want to live today.​

“Beautiful homes with immaculate amenities. The private yard is a great touch as well as the Ring Doorbells. Excellent value for the high-quality appliances and finishes they have in each home. It is very quiet and private. The staff has been nothing short of remarkable.”
