Downsizing Demand Drives Display Village Grand Opening

Lara is emerging as a sought after location for Victorians looking to downsize and reap the financial rewards of the land lease ownership model.

To cater to the growing demand for affordable, lifestyle living options for downsizers, Ingenia Lifestyle Lara has launched five new display homes to the market in time for its Display Village Grand Opening on Saturday 20 May 2017 from 10am – 2pm.

Project Sales Manager Kerri Hughes said those looking to downsize the family home were invited to tour the new one and two bedroom display homes that provide downsizers with a selection of homes designed for singles, couples and those who require extra space after downsizing.

“By providing buyers with a range of options, downsizers can select their new home based on their individual and lifestyle needs with the advantage of living in a brand new home with no stamp duty, exit fees or council rates,” Ms Hughes said.

“Our Open Day provides an opportune time for prospective downsizers to come in and see first-hand how buying into a land lease community can not only offer a variety of financial benefits, it can also offer an improvement in lifestyle, health and wellbeing.”

When Ingenia Lifestyle Lara resident Dianne Johnson embarked on making plans for her future, she decided to downsize to a community where there was more transparency in the agreement and would not put a strain on her financial security.

“Purchasing a home at Ingenia was made so much easier knowing that I didn’t have to pay any stamp duty and there were no hidden fees. I think that’s why I bought so quickly,” Ms Johnson said.

“Realising that I could actually afford a brand new home was a huge relief for me financially. The added benefit of leasing the land and access to wonderful lifestyle facilities enables me to live the life I love.

“The community in Lara is just lovely, our location has the quietness of the country with the convenience of the city provided by easy access to Geelong and Melbourne.”

On the day, guests will have the opportunity to enter Ingenia Lifestyle’s free competition to go in the draw to win a cruise valued at $5,000 plus enjoy a selection of light refreshments and tour the $3.1 million dollar clubhouse and its resort-style facilities.

Setting new benchmarks in quality affordable senior’s accommodation, Ingenia Lifestyle Lara have brand new homes starting from $219,000.
