Downsizers make their move as property markets peak

Many Sydney-based seniors are taking advantage of peak property markets – making their move now to downsize, free up equity and fund a more comfortable future.

The Lake Macquarie region has become a sought after location for seniors looking for a lifestyle change with Ingenia Lifestyle delivering a new benchmark in affordable yet stylish living at The Grange in Morisset.

Nestled at the gateway to Newcastle and the Hunter Valley, on the shores of Lake Macquarie and just one hour drive north from Sydney, the region has become a destination of choice for many downsizers looking to maximise a more active lifestyle.

Project Sales Manager, Jason Webb, said clients are swapping the city suburbs for a more relaxed coastal lifestyle.

“Our regional and coastal communities are benefitting greatly from Sydney’s peak property market, with the enquiry levels from Sydney couples increasing over the past few months.

“Downsizers have snapped up more than 70% of Stage One and with this increasing demand Stage Two launched at The Grange’s recent Open Day in March.

“With the amenities of Lake Macquarie at their doorstep, combined with the serenity of the suburb, clients are getting the best of both worlds and the demand for over 55s housing is skyrocketing,” Jason said.

When Ingenia Lifestyle residents Barrie and Norma Ross decided to downsize from their home in Sydney, they didn’t realise how much they would love the
community and their new lifestyle.

“After living in Sydney for most of our lives, we wanted to get out of the city for a more relaxing lifestyle.

“Living at The Grange gives us the option of enjoying the serenity but still being close enough to important amenities and just a 90 minute train ride to Sydney if we do want to head in.

“If anyone is considering a move to The Grange, come in and really experience the community life, social events and location for yourself – you’ll never want to leave,” Barrie said.

Ingenia Lifestyle The Grange has brand new homes available now, selling from $337,000. Contact Jason Webb on 0458 018 332 or visit
