Most of our lives we dream of a time when we can enjoy less responsibility. Less time doing the tasks we have to do and more time doing the things we actually want to do. For most of us financial security is the key to experiencing this freedom and that’s why we work so hard to make sure we are in the best financial shape possible when we retire or are approaching retirement.
Downsizing is a great way to enhance financial security because in most cases the price you get for your larger old family home is a lot more than you pay for your new home. The result? Some cash in the bank.
Aviva Communities in Officer offers people 55+ the opportunity to downsize to a contemporary new home in a secure gated community. Each home also has access to The Lodge – a homeowners’ clubhouse with indoor pool and spa, sauna, gym, wellness space, cinema, bar, bowling green and more.
Aviva Communities Officer is a land lease community where you own your home and lease the land on which it sits by a Weekly Site Fee. If you are eligible for the pension most people are able to access Government Rental Assistance which reduces the Weekly Site Fee.
Financially living in a community like Aviva Officer makes a lot of sense because:
• You pay no stamp duty on the purchase
• You pay no council rates each year
• We include your household power costs as a benefit of living in the community – so no more gas and electricity bills
• Insurance costs are a lot less – recent research showed our homeowners saved between $350 $560 dollars a year
Homes at Aviva Officer start from $389,000. You can inspect one of the six displays in safety by private appointment at 34 McMullen Road, Officer. If you want to find out how it all works call downsizing specialist Jackie on 1800 961 585 or visit the website on avivacommunities.com.au
