A day in the life of a downsizer

downsizing person having fun

You already know that downsizing can save you money, unlock equity and give you the freedom to live a fuller life, but have you ever wondered what life looks like in a Downsizing Community? We’ve mapped out a typical day in the life of a downsizer to help you decide if it’s the right move for you. It’s important to keep in mind that everyone’s experience is different, and your downsizing journey will be shaped by your own wants and needs – it’s up to you to make the most of it! Here’s how your downsized life in a Land Lease Community could look:

Rise and shine

In your modern, low-maintenance home, you’ll wake up on the right side of the bed every morning! Brekky is a breeze when your new home comes equipped with all the latest stainless steel appliances. Whether you’re preparing bowl of porridge or frying up bacon and eggs with the lot, you’ll love the functionality and ease of a stylish, contemporary kitchen.


Time to get moving. Most downsizing communities offer a broad range of sporting amenities to make keeping active simple. Just a few steps from your front door, you can meet your neighbours at the community tennis court or bowling green for a few friendly rounds. Don’t forget to let them win a few!

Lunch time

Now you’ve worked up a sweat and an appetite why not break for lunch? Your community clubhouse offers a fully functioning barbeque area for you and your neighbours to cook up a feast. Choose from the indoor or alfresco dining space to kick back and chow down.

Afternoon delight

After lunch you might be ready for some me-time and there’s no better way to decompress than with a good book. Pop into your community’s library on the way home to check out your next novel. Head home and escape to your favourite reading nook where you’ll get lost in the pages.

Dinner time

You’ve got guests coming for dinner tonight and it’s time to get ready. A short walk or drive down to the shops is all it takes to get everything you need. Whip it all together and presto, dinner is served.

Wind down

Catching up with your guests has been a blast and now it’s time to say good night. Your double vanity ensuite offers an easy way to wind down and get ready for bed. There’s plenty of room for you and your partner to floss, flush, wash and brush before a good night’s sleep.
