On average, more than 40 million people move each year in the United States. Although peak season estimates suggest that 80% of those moves occur between the months of April and September, any time of year is a great time to move to Birmingham. At Tower Homes, where we’re Building a better life, we have long understood the real value of the metropolitan Birmingham area for home ownership. A new home anywhere in Alabama can have plenty to offer, but Birmingham’s heritage and culture can’t be topped. As a new homeowner in The Grand, our newest community in Birmingham, you will not only have access to a beautiful home with a multi-year warranty – you’ll have easy access to all that Birmingham has to offer.
