live the dream down size

And just like that…it’s 2022!

With the arrival of the New Year, many people will be setting goals for the months ahead – do you have any resolutions for 2022?

Whether you’d like to free up your finances, head off on big adventures or improve your health and fitness, many of your resolutions can become a reality when you make the move to a Downsizing Community.

Here are five reasons downsizing could be the perfect option for you in 2022:

  1. Feel good, financially

Want more money in your back pocket (or travel fund)? Downsizing provides a range of financial benefits to help you feel set-up and secure.

Equity free-up, reduced living costs, fewer home repairs and maintenance, no council rates and no stamp duty are just some of the ways your bank account will benefit when you call a Downsizing Community home.

So, whether you’re looking to buy your dream caravan, take off on bigger, better holidays or simply enjoy the security of freeing up your finances, you’ll be well positioned to spend your money, your way!

  • Live like you’re on holiday (even before you retire!)

You’ve been working hard all your life – so now’s the time to play harder! If a stress-free lifestyle with more fun, relaxation and time with family is how you want your 2022 to look, then downsizing could be the opportunity you’ve been waiting for!

Downsizing Communities really do help you live your life to the fullest. From community sporting events and BBQs, to movie nights, games nights, exercise classes, excursions, happy hour and more, there’s so much fun to get involved in – if you choose to.

  • Take advantage of the hot property market

With the property market hotter than ever, there’s never been a better time to sell your home. Selling your property in a seller’s market, where purchasers are spending more on homes, is the best way to rake in big capital gains.

This will help you to feel extra secure and financially set-up ask you embark on your downsizing journey.

  • Stay connected

Just like the friendly community environment you experience when you go camping, Lifestyle Villages nurture a supportive and vibrant community. Because homeowners are like-minded and share similar values, neighbours often become cherished friends. At some Downsizing Communities, there are also community managers who live onsite and are always there to lend a helping hand or a listening ear.

So, whether you want to share travel stories, have a laugh or enjoy a coffee, moving to a Downsizing Community means there’ll always be someone there to share in the moments with you.

  • Get active with ease

Another popular resolution – and one that often gets abandoned after a few weeks – is improving your health and fitness.

If achieving a greater sense of wellness and enjoying a more active lifestyle is something you want to accomplish in 2022, then moving to a Downsizing Community could be the perfect option.

Downsizing Communities feature a range of amenities to make living a healthy and active lifestyle easy. From indoor pools, to gyms, tennis courts, bowls, walking trails and more, you’ll be spoiled for choice when it comes to opportunities to get active.

Some Downsizing Communities also have a dedicated health and wellness team to organise activities that promote healthy living for residents.
