It makes financial sense
The graph below show the projected number of people reaching 65 in WA by 2027. This means that with more and more people looking for retirement options, it makes sense to start looking for lifestyle options early. For many Western Australians, releasing money tied up in the family home is key in living a wonderful life and in 2017, buying an National Lifestyle Villages Home and Lifestyle Package presents a better equity release than ever before.Enquire Now
Over the last 15 years, resale values of NLV homes have tracked closely to normal real estate and NLV home owners have realised good returns on their investment.
With the growing Baby Boomer population, Lifestyle Villages are gaining popularity and we anticipate that over the next 20 years our Villages will continue to become an increasingly sought after option.
Though some of our communities are sold out, it is possible to buy an established home and lifestyle package, and just like normal real estate, the usual laws of supply and demand apply.

Lyn and Bob
We were in Wanneroo and we wanted to downsize. We have got a big van and we were looking for a sea change – and my twin daughters are in Bunbury. We did all the research and looked at the Joondalup and Mandurah villages. We looked at putting a park home on caravan parks, but they have not got the security.
Here we can go away and not have to worry. We had alarms in Perth, but you still panic a bit when you go away. It’s the neighbours here that are great and that are always looking out for you. And with a house in other places, for insurance you have to be in it for a number of months of the year, or you have to get a house-sitter. Our house in Perth sold very quickly and it freed up some money, although Bob is still working. We also needed an area for the caravan, which we have got and it is secure.
The village has a nice community feeling. The neighbours are excellent, which isn’t always the case in the suburbs. We have had friends go into the Joondalup village and they couldn’t believe the social life. We have morning teas for the ladies, we are knitting for charity and we have got a bus. The village management here are like family – they really are.
Busselton Lifestyler, Anne has lived all over the country in a range of similar village communities. But according to Anne, nothing compares to the coastal charm of Busselton.
Anne selected a 1-bedroom, 1-bathroom Sussex home and comments that it is so beautifully designed. “From the front it looks like a quaint little 1900s worker’s cottage, but once you get inside, it’s so vast and well laid-out.”
Plenty of storage
“The storage is brilliant. There’s a laundry with an ironing board facility and broom cupboard, a wall-to-wall robe in my bedroom and plenty of cupboards in my galley kitchen.”
“The sales ladies often show prospective buyers through my home and I am very proud of that.”
“I have lived all over the country, in various (non-NLV) village communities of different sizes, and Busselton Lifestyle Village is just the right size.”
“The management team is lovely, you can talk to them and they treat you like family.”
“We have a brilliant position right next to a park, there is a bike and walking track nearby and I love the access to Busselton town and the beach, which are just 2kms away.”
