Down­siz­ers seek new liv­ing trends with more ben­e­fits

The Coffs Coast Advocate - - YOUR SAY -

With hous­ing af­ford­abil­ity an on­go­ing con­cern for se­niors within the Coffs Har­bour re­gion, lead­ing de­vel­oper of over 55s com­mu­ni­ties, In­ge­nia Lifestyle, is meet­ing the surg­ing de­mand for more suitable ac­com­mo­da­tion op­tions with the launch of Plan­ta­tions.

The new lifestyle com­mu­nity, lo­cated in Wool­go­olga, re­cently cel­e­brated the pre-sales launch by wel­com­ing over 200 guests to a spe­cial high tea event with se­niors fi­nance ex­pert, Rachel Lane, while of­fer­ing a sneak peek of the vi­sion for the new $75 mil­lion com­mu­nity.

The event at­tracted an un­prece­dented num­ber of down­siz­ers look­ing to un­der­stand how sell­ing their fam­ily home could be a cru­cial fac­tor to free­ing up much needed funds while re­tain­ing fi­nan­cial in­de­pen­dence in their se­nior years.

Guests were also keen to learn about the new al­ter­na­tive to the tra­di­tional re­tire­ment vil­lage op­tion with Plan­ta­tions land lease own­er­ship model set­ting new bench­marks in over 55s lifestyle liv­ing.

In­ge­nia Chief Op­er­at­ing Of­fi­cer, Nikki Fisher, said the de­mand for In­ge­nia Lifestyle’s land lease com­mu­ni­ties comes at a time when many se­nior Aus­tralians are grap­pling with the avail­abil­ity for more suitable hous­ing.

“Those who look to down­size and re­lo­cate to an over 55s lifestyle com­mu­nity of­ten pay less for their new home, which pro­vides them with more cap­i­tal to fund their se­nior years.

“Lifestyle-fo­cused land lease com­mu­ni­ties are one of the new­est se­nior liv­ing trends avail­able to the down­siz­ing mar­ket, al­low­ing res­i­dents to pur­chase a brand new home and lease the land while elim­i­nat­ing the need to pay stamp duty fees with no com­pli­cated exit fees.

“Many lifestyle com­mu­nity res­i­dents are also able to ac­cess rental as­sis­tance, an­other added comfort each fort­night, and take part in In­ge­nia’s so­cial, lifestyle and well­be­ing pro­grams so res­i­dents can con­tinue to live in­de­pen­dently or lock up and leave to travel,” Nikki said.

The very sim­ple and trans­par­ent land lease own­er­ship model of­fers buy­ers more con­fi­dence know­ing there’s no sur­prises with just one weekly site fee to cover the rent of the land, ad­di­tion­ally, if or when the time comes to leave, the home owner re­tains 100% of any cap­i­tal growth made on the prop­erty.
