Demand Grows For Over 45s Affordable Homes in Victoria

Early interest in Ingenia Lifestyle Lara, has signalled growing demand from locals looking to capitalise on increased median house prices in the area and downsize to a more affordable option.

A number of deposits were made on brand new homes at the recent open day weekend in February.

Project Sales Manager, Dianna McGrath, said the majority of open day attendees were Geelong locals looking for more than just a new home.

“The feedback from our open day was that locals were not only looking to downsize but to also improve their overall lifestyle.”

“With more than sixty homes already sold in the community’s first two stages, we have fielded exceptional levels of enquiries ahead of our next stages and coming display village.

“Visitors were impressed by our newly refurbished community facilities, such as our clubhouse and entertainment areas, as well as the sense of comradery our current residents exude,” Dianna said.

From mid-2016, a range of new home designs and floor plans will be introduced, with 160 new homes due to be built over a number of stages.

Brand new homes are available from just $175,000 (with exit fee), or alternatively, from $189,000 (with no exit fee). These homes are less than half of Lara’s current median house price of $378,000 and well below Geelong’s current median house price of $632,000.
