It’s an affordable new way of living
The National Lifestyle Villages Group has set a new benchmark in Western Australia by creating a Home and Lifestyle Package for 30-50% less than the cost of a median priced suburban home.
By adopting the internationally recognised land-lease ownership model, National Lifestyle Villages has taken the ‘Great Australian Dream’ of owning your own home and changed it to create the Great Australian Lifestyle.
Land-lease ownership means that you buy and own your home and lease the plot of land on which it is located. In Australia, this model is commonly used in commercial buildings and facilities such as airports and ports. It is also the preferred model for all residential homes in Canberra, which are purchased on a 99-year lease instead of a traditional Freehold Title.
Your secure lease agreement gives you exclusive use of the land that your home is located on for up to 60 years, which includes ongoing exclusive access to all of the facilities and services available in your Village, as well as covering all the usual council rates and taxes.
By downsizing your home and upsizing your lifestyle, you can get rid of the mortgage or simply free the money that’s tied up in your old home. Life in a National Lifestyle Village gives you the freedom to enjoy life on your own terms.Enquire Now
Peace of mind
We are governed under the Residential Parks (Long-Stay Tenants) Act 2006 and its accompanying regulations, which affords you legislative protections and peace of mind.
Weekly affordability into the future
There are no hidden costs or surprises – just an affordable weekly rental fee (less Government Rent Assistance if you are on a pension).
The fee can be paid in full each week, or a smaller fee can be paid weekly whilst living in the community with the balance being paid in the future when you sell.
There is only one rent review on the 1st of July each year, and this is calculated using the WA Consumer Price Index (CPI) +2%, providing you with further peace of mind, especially if you are on a fixed income. In order to provide certainty of weekly costs, National Lifestyle Villages only does a market review once every 10 years!
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.”
