Ecstatic downsizers first choice resort-style living

,

Coffs Harbour downsizers are set to secure their future sooner than planned, with Ingenia Lifestyle’s new $75 million lifestyle community – Plantations – launching its VIP buyer registration club.

In a bid to meet surging demand for over 55s resort-style living along New South Wales’ north coast, Ingenia Lifestyle has launched into pre-sales mode ahead of schedule with two sell out events as buyers rush to secure their new home.

Soon-to-be residents Brian and Diane Greenwood said they were thrilled to be able to view the plans for Plantations early thanks to registering with the Ingenia Lifestyle First Choice Club, which secured them priority access to select their preferred home design in the new gold-class community.

“The home prices in Plantations are so affordable that we were sold the second we saw the sales office – I am beyond excited,” Mrs Greenwood said.

“We have been in love with the development since day one – the price means we will have extra money to fund all the things we had hoped to do in retirement, such as caravanning around Australia and holidaying overseas.

“The security that comes with living in a community such as Plantations gives us peace of mind about being able leave our home and travel whenever we want to.

“Our desired home will have everything we need, two-bedrooms, open plan living and a big alfresco dining area out the back which will be perfect for when we entertain – something I love to do.”

With housing affordability a growing concern on the north coast of New South Wales[1] and front-of-mind for many over 55s, the new lifestyle community is a welcome addition to the area, where buyers are seeking to minimise their financial risks as they pursue downsizing options.

Lifestyle-focused land lease communities have a strong foothold in the market, setting new benchmarks and breaking down the walls of confusing contracts, complex financial arrangements and questions over legalities.

Ingenia Chief Operating Officer Nikki Fisher said land lease living replaces uncertainty with a more affordable, simple and transparent ownership model.

“Land lease living is not your average retirement community, it saves seniors thousands of dollars with a more affordable price point while introducing a whole new housing market that is not just for retirees but for all types of downsizers,” Ms Fisher said.

“Our unique model means residents purchase a brand new home and lease the land, meaning they don’t have to worry about paying strata management or body corporate fees, council rates, stamp duty, exit fees or even refurbishment costs.”

The lifestyle community will also feature a resort-style clubhouse, which is set to include a gym, heated pool, library, lawn bowling green, cinema, consulting rooms, alfresco BBQ area and sports bar.

Set on 19.5 hectares Plantations by Ingenia Lifestyle is the next Star Collection community to launch under Ingenia Lifestyle’s gold-class brand.

Construction on homes has already commenced, with the first residents to be welcomed from early-2019.

Downsizers seek new living trends with more benefits

,

With housing affordability an ongoing concern for seniors within the Coffs Harbour region, leading developer of over 55s communities, Ingenia Lifestyle, is meeting the surging demand for more suitable accommodation options with the launch of Plantations.

The new lifestyle community, located in Woolgoolga, recently celebrated the pre-sales launch by welcoming over 200 guests to a special high tea event with seniors finance expert, Rachel Lane, while offering a sneak peek of the vision for the new $75 million community.

The event attracted an unprecedented number of downsizers looking to understand how selling their family home could be a crucial factor to freeing up much needed funds while retaining financial independence in their senior years.

Guests were also keen to learn about the new alternative to the traditional retirement village option with Plantations land lease ownership model setting new benchmarks in over 55s lifestyle living.

Ingenia Chief Operating Officer, Nikki Fisher, said the demand for Ingenia Lifestyle’s land lease communities comes at a time when many senior Australians are grappling with the availability for more suitable housing.

“Those who look to downsize and relocate to an over 55s lifestyle community often pay less for their new home, which provides them with more capital to fund their senior years.

“Lifestyle-focused land lease communities are one of the newest senior living trends available to the downsizing market, allowing residents to purchase a brand new home and lease the land while eliminating the need to pay stamp duty fees with no complicated exit fees.

“Many lifestyle community residents are also able to access rental assistance, another added comfort each fortnight and take part in Ingenia’s social, lifestyle and wellbeing programs so residents can continue to live independently or lock up and leave to travel,” Nikki said.

The very simple and transparent land lease ownership model offers buyers more confidence knowing there’s no surprises with just one weekly site fee to cover the rent of the land, additionally, if or when the time comes to leave, the home owner retains 100% of any capital growth made on the property.

Ingenia Lifestyle has celebrated the official start of its second Star Collection community, Plantations, located in the seaside town of Woolgoolga on the NSW mid-north coast.

The momentous occasion was marked with a breaking ground event on Friday 4th May as Ingenia CEO, Simon Owen and official dignitary, Mayor of Coffs Harbour City Council, Denise Knight, turned the first sod, along with members and contractors from the project team.

Simon said the addition of Plantations added to the new range of Star Collection communities which provide gold-class resort facilities in an affordable lifestyle setting.

“We have recorded strong sales at our first Star Collection community further south in Port Stephens at Latitude One and our South West Rocks community has now sold out,” Simon said.

Coffs Harbour Mayor Denise Knight said Plantations was a great investment into the local community and provided a more affordable seniors living solution for many years to come.

“Coffs Harbour is so lucky to have this new community in our region, facilities such as the ones Ingenia is set to provide can only attract more seniors looking for a sea change.

“This different type of housing model truly compliments the Coffs Harbour lifestyle and offers downsizers more choice, control and flexibility in their retirement,” Cr Knight said.

Set on 19.5 hectares Ingenia’s new land lease community will deliver 196 homes, with 68 homes and a display village all set to be delivered within the first stage.

Ingenia Chief Operating Officer, Nikki Fisher, said the latest acquisition was an excellent addition to the current cluster of the Group’s communities on the NSW Mid-North Coast.

“Plantations will extend Ingenia’s presence in the region after the popularity of our South West Rocks community has seen all available home sites now sold out.

“With the population of over 55s in the Coffs Harbour area anticipated to rise by nearly 20% by 2026, there is an increasing need to provide more affordable and manageable sized homes in the region,” Nikki said.

Set in the seaside town of Woolgoolga, Ingenia Lifestyle’s new community is in an attractive location for seniors looking to downsize with shopping centres, Coffs Harbour Base Hospital and Coffs Harbour Airport all easily accessible.

Hervey Bay – Coming Soon

Ingenia will introduce the third Star Collection project to Queensland’s Fraser Coast region with a brand new, innovative eco-sustainable community.

Positioned at the gateway to Fraser Island, the over 50s lifestyle community will deliver 200 brand new premium homes for downsizers looking to live within the Hervey Bay region.

Regional Sales Manager, Sharon Manson, said the master plan will focus on providing a balance of affordability and value.

“There has been strong demand for more seniors living in the area, and Ingenia understands the market diversity.

“We have placed a real focus on what our clients need in their new home, this includes eco-sustainable features that aren’t found standard in any other village in the region.

“Home designs with raked ceilings will maximise the natural sunlight and provide a light and airy feel and the seamless indoor outdoor living spaces will provide covered, private entertaining alfresco areas making them ideal for the sub-tropical climate,” Sharon said.

The homes will incorporate environmentally sustainable features using the principles of passive home design which take advantage of the climate to maintain a comfortable temperature in the home through cross-ventilation, while natural light and a passive solar system will help to reduce utility bills in the home.
