Downsize Without Compromising on Lifestyle

South East Queensland seniors looking to downsize their family home are making a noticeable shift towards upsizing their downsizer, preferring a more spacious home design with a larger floor plan to match their new lifestyle.

Logan’s over 50s community, Ingenia Lifestyle Bethania, is recording this emerging trend with an increasing amount of clients expressing interest in the new three-bed homes and the two-bed plus study designs over the other floor plans.

Project Sales Manager, Sharon Manson, said although downsizing represents a new opportunity for over 50s to move into a smaller home, what they’re really after is a similar reflection of their previous lifestyle with all the benefits of downsizing.

“We’re finding clients aren’t willing to compromise on space and quality in their new home and are seeking out designs with larger internal living spaces and extra bedrooms to accommodate guests and grandchildren or family heirlooms and extra furniture.

“The feedback from our buyers is that, while they are going through a decluttering process, the larger floor plan means they don’t need to say goodbye to everything. Another added benefit is their new homes are now easier to clean and maintain without the large backyards,” Sharon said.

Ingenia Lifestyle Bethania has brand new homes that are delivering flexibility and added benefits to seniors who are looking to reduce the burden of their large family home and potentially unlock some of their equity to fund the next stage of their life.

“The new three-bedroom home designs are selling fast with only a final few homes available and the next most popular floor plan, the two bed plus study with two bath and double lock up garage, selling from just $329,000.

“A number of new homes have just been released providing an opportune time for prospective downsizers to inspect the homes and our community,” Sharon said.

Guests will be able to explore the increasingly popular lifestyle-focussed land lease community model, which is becoming the fastest growing option for downsizers looking to boost their financial health and are specifically tailored to meet the needs of active seniors where they lease the land and secure ownership of a brand new home.

Setting new benchmarks in quality affordable senior’s accommodation, Ingenia Lifestyle Bethania allows over 50s to pursue a financially stable lifestyle based on independence, health and wellbeing – all while enjoying a new active lifestyle.
