4 reasons you’ll love your downsized life

Date Posted: February 1, 2021

Imagine if being home felt just as fun and feel-good as being on holiday?

We’re here to tell you that it can! In fact, there are so many reasons to fall in love with moving to a downsizing community. Because there really is no better feeling than loving where you live and the community you belong to.

Here are 4 reasons to fall head over heels for your lifestyle in a downsizing community:

  1. Supportive community

One of the biggest reasons downsizers fall in love with their lifestyle, is the supportive and well-connected community they become a part of. Because downsizing communities attract like-minded people who respect their neighbourhood and the people in it, the sense of community is palpable.

If you love the idea of belonging to a community that values safety, security, connectedness and fun, then you’re well on your way to falling in love with downsizing!

  • Luxury amenities

Another reason to fall in love with downsizing, is having access to luxury amenities and facilities on your doorstep. Downsizing communities feature a whole range of resort-style amenities that make you feel like you’re on holiday every day.

Some of the facilities you’ll find at most communities include:

  • Homeowners clubhouse
  • Indoor pool and spa
  • Gymnasium
  • Wellness centre
  • Sauna
  • Cinema
  • Tennis court
  • Bocce or croquet lawn
  • Workshop
  • Bowling green
  • Craft and art studio
  • Function space
  • Some communities even have fishing boats!
  • Beautiful homes

Falling in love with the homes within downsizing communities is easy! Land lease communities feature brand new homes (and some pre-loved ones too), that require very little maintenance and upkeep. Most homes come with ready-to-move in inclusions like luxury kitchen appliances, heating and cooling, floor coverings, window furnishings, landscaping and more.

This means you’ll have so much more time and money to spend doing the things you love – like jumping in your caravan for your next road trip!

  • Great locations

It’s so important to love the location you live in, and downsizing communities will help you fall head over heels! There are a wide range of perfectly placed communities that make for beautiful living experiences.

Many land lease communities are located in convenient and picturesque locations, with effortless access to local shops, facilities, attractions and transport. You can explore our affiliated downsizing community locations here.
