Investing in Over 50s Lifestyle Villages in SA: Worth It?

In terms of the monetary value, those over 55 living in a retirement village can look to Australia’s ageing population for a sure-fire sign that their property will remain in demand. The value lies in more than merely the financial realm, but also in the peace of mind that comes with having your security and lifestyle assured. Here, we explore investing and living in an over 55s community such as those offered by our Karidis Retirement Villages.

Your Retirement Home as a Financial Investment

Australia has a population that continues to grow older. It makes sense, therefore, that buying in a retirement village that offers over 55 living is a good idea from a financial perspective.

There are certain aspects of the purchase you might want to investigate, however, prior to purchase. If you think that selling your home in a retirement village might be on the cards in the future, you should find out if it will be subject to fees or whether any capital gains may be held. Obviously, this will reduce the amount you get back from what you put in, so savvy investors will want to properly check the contract before buying.

In most cases, buying a property in a retirement village makes sense as a financial investment.

Your Retirement Home as a Lifestyle Investment

Investing in the right retirement property makes even more sense as a lifestyle investment. The key word here is “right”, as in, the right property for you. Communities like those managed by Karidis offer customisable services and tailored financial options through Retire Assist. For a home purchase to be considered a lifestyle investment, it must make things easier, give you time to do the things that make you happy, while helping you take care of life’s necessities more easily than if you were doing it alone.

Security, companionship, fewer maintenance worries and more time to enjoy life are beneficial to your health and wellbeing. As such, investing in over 50s lifestyle villages makes sense in terms of both financial and lifestyle benefits.
