There is a large laundry with washers and dryers. The tenants pay for their electricity as the units are metered separately. Tenants pay $5.00 per week for hot water which is not separately metered and they pay $15 per week for services, entertainment etc and this includes a clean towel, pillow case and bed sheets every week.

The on site managers are excellent in looking after the property and the gardens, and overseeing the kitchens, organising outings and entertainment, and they really care for the occupants under their management. People live here because it is semi supported living.

Most retirement units have some form of ownership where you lose money when you sell. These units are strata titled freehold units so you own it, and can sell it anytime you want to, like any regular town house sale. No entry or exit fees apply.

Investors: Here is an opportunity to purchase units, with a positive cash flow from day one! Let your tenants pay the properties off for you. All you need to do is to wait for the capital appreciation and rent increases.

Existing long term tenants want to stay, and you will take over the existing lease unless you wish to move in to one yourself and rent the other out. There is also usually a waiting list of prospective tenants.

Most tenants are on Centrelink, and their rent is government assisted. Some tenants have arranged for Centrelink to pay their rent direct to the landlord.

There are seldom opportunities to find a vacancy in this community. This is a truly smart, safe, low risk investment, older people seldom trash units or abscond. As the ageing population group expands, it is becoming harder and harder for them to find decent affordable safe accommodation. Whether you want to live in the unit, or rent it out... call now to avoid disappointment!
