It’s never too early to start planning for retirement. If you’re thinking about retirement
housing, you may be curious whether retirement home or lifestyle villages are better for
you. Karidis Retirement Villages breaks down the similarities and differences in this blog
to help you decide.
Retirement Village and Lifestyle Village Agreements
The main similarity between retirement and lifestyle villages is that they are both
popular living options for Australians as they get older. A retirement village is a
residential community with numerous facilities allowing over 55’s to stay active and live
independently. When you buy into a retirement village, you’re paying for the right to
reside in the house. That’s different from lifestyle villages, which use a land lease
instead, meaning residents own their home and lease the land.
Choosing the Right Retirement Living for You
You deserve a great retirement after years of hard work. You just need to narrow down
your options between staying in a traditional neighbourhood or moving into independent
living villages. A retirement village is likely better for you if you want an affordable, yet
enriching option without needing to buy a home outright. When you buy in and receive
the right to reside in return, it’s easier to exit if your circumstances change. You are
entitled to a refund on loan license payments, too.
That’s not to say that lifestyle villages don’t have their perks, but financial support and
tailored options are more likely in retirement villages. Affordable housing options and
Retire Assist financial support packages await with luxury retirement villages.
