Southeast Queensland over-50s can continue to tick off their bucket lists as Ingenia Lifestyle Bethania unveils new home design concepts to suit ”lock up and leave’’ residents.
Ingenia Lifestyle regional sales manager Sharon Manson said the new concepts were designed to meet the growing demand from local downsizers.
“Ingenia Lifestyle’s new home design concepts are part of the innovative land lease ownership model and will provide Queenslanders a fresh taste for adventure, with homes equipped to fit a caravan or recreational vehicle,” Ms Manson said.
She said the community had become a popular option for downsizers looking to boost their financial health through its innovative land lease ownership model.
“Ingenia Lifestyle’s land lease model allows buyers to purchase a new, architecturally-designed home and lease — rather than own — the land,” Ms Manson said.
“This unique model is the perfect way for downsizers to fund a brand new lifestyle, eliminating the need to pay stamp duty, exit fees or deferred management fees, plus residents are able to keep 100 per cent of the capital gains if or when they choose to sell their home.”
Ms Manson said residents appreciated being able to house RVs and caravans nearby as the village supports the “lock up and leave’’ lifestyle.
“Ingenia Lifestyle Bethania residents love the freedom that comes with leaving their homes behind for a few weeks as they travel around in their RVs or caravans,” she said.
Local residents and grey nomads Lee and Norma Falconer love being part of their Ingenia Lifestyle Bethania community — when they’re not busy travelling around Australia.
“This year we have been away for four-and-a-half months travelling — mainly in our caravan,” Mr Falconer said.
“Living in the village makes it easy to pack up and go.”
