One of the many reasons those over 50 enjoy living in a Hometown Australia community is the access to the amenities which could include a pool, bowling green, tennis court, gyms & wellness centre, and clubhouse to name a few. Whilst others enjoy the opportunity to live in a world class holiday destination without the hefty price tag.

What are the Financial Benefits of Living in a Land Lease Community?

One of the main questions asked is “what is the difference between living in a land lease community verse a retirement village?” One of the main differences are the financial benefits of living in a land lease community compared to a retirement village, due to the Land Lease Living model.

The financial benefits of a land lease community include:

  • No stamp duty payable
  • No council rates
  • No deferred management fees that can be part of moving into, or out of, a retirement village
  • You may be eligible to claim Commonwealth Rental Assistance
  • You also retain 100% of your capital gains as a cash profit when you sell your home. In many retirement living options, your agreement may force you to share your capital gains with the retirement village management or in some cases the manager may receive all your capital gain on sale. Living in a Hometown Australia Land Lease Living community means that more money stays in your pocket.

Understanding Land Lease Living

Hometown Australia’s communities can also be referred to as land lease living communities. This means residents own the dwelling and have a long-term lease over the land on which it stands. Hometown Australia offers both resort and boutique style communities, providing true value for money, without the high entry and exit fees often associated with other retirement living options.
