New year’s resolutions made easy with downsizing

Date Posted: January 4, 2021

It’s that time of the year again – the time to write down new goals for the year ahead. What resolutions are on your list for 2021?

Whether you’re looking to travel more, stress less, experience greater financial freedoms or enjoy an active lifestyle, downsizing to a land lease community could be the solution you need to achieve your goals in 2021 and beyond. Keep reading to discover how:

Buy your dream caravan

How long have you been dreaming of buying a new caravan or camper trailer? Too long? If you’re hoping that 2021 will be the year that your dream becomes a reality, then making the move to a land lease community could be a great way to make it happen.

Downsizing will help you free up the equity that’s sitting in your current home, giving you more money to spend on the things you really want.

Holiday more

More opportunities for jet-setting and road-tripping is a resolution that makes it onto many people’s lists. How often have you wished you had more time and money to enjoy bigger, better holidays throughout the year?

Well, we have good news for you! Here’s how downsizing could help you unlock more adventures:

  • Free up cash to fund your adventures.
  • Spend less time fixing and cleaning up, and more time doing the things you love – like travelling!
  • Living in a secure community means you can lock-up and leave for a worry-free holiday.

Get your finances in order

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.

Get more active

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 2021, 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.

Enjoy the lifestyle you deserve

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 2021 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.
