Four ways downsizing allows you to live more freely

Date Posted: March 23, 2022

Freedom for retirees, who downsize

Having the freedom to live the life you’ve always dreamed of is a universal desire. There are several ways you can enjoy more freedoms in your life by downsizing to a Land Lease Community. Many downsizers fall in love with their liberated lifestyles! And if you’re wondering how you’ll experience greater freedoms, we’ve put together a list of the top four ways people live more freely in Downsizing Communities. 

1. Financial freedom 

When you move to a Land Lease Community, you’ll enjoy watching your wallet grow thanks to the myriad of financial benefits that come with downsizing. Selling your existing home will allow you to free up a significant amount of cash which can be used to pay off your mortgage, invest or spend – the opportunities are endless. In addition to this, you’ll benefit from the household savings that come with owning a smaller, more efficient home, plus no stamp duty, no council rates and no water rates.

2. Lifestyle freedom 

Whether you’re a workaholic or a serial daydreamer, you’ll be free to live life your way in a Downsizing Community. Many homes in Downsizing Communities come with a dedicated study or home office room where you can spend your days working away without the morning madness. If keeping active is your style, you’ll have the benefit of facilities on your doorstep like gyms, bowling greens and tennis courts. When it’s time to unwind, the pool and spa will be close by!  

3. Freedom to travel 

With extra cash in your back pocket thanks to downsizing your home and expenses, you’ll have the freedom to spend more on the things you love – like travelling! The best part is, you can travel with peace of mind knowing your home and belongings will be safe and sound in a gated community while you’re away. 

4. Freedom to customise your home 

Often, Downsizing Communities feature brand-new homes, offering the opportunity for you to customise your new home to reflect your unique style and needs. You can select the colour schemes, flooring materials, carpets and add on extras to make your home feel truly your own! While purchasing a pre-loved home doesn’t offer the same versatility, you’ll be free to express your style in the interior design of your new home.
