Why Hometown

Because you deserve this…

Hometown Australia communities provide residents with true value for money on top of a great quality of life. Unlike many other forms of retirement living that often charge exorbitant entry and exit fees, Hometown Australia offers over 55s the same kind of resort-style

living without the extra cost. Hometown Australia is dedicated to enhancing the quality of life of its residents. Personal respect and responsive service are the pillars that fasten our well-maintained and fairly priced living environments.

  • Convenient locations 

    Our communities are built near to waterways,  beaches, nature reserves, recreational amenities, medical facilties, shopping and the best local food and wine destinations.

  • A commitment to caring 

    We promote good citizenship, corporate responsibility, and caring involvement. We serve the members of our communities to the fullest.

  • Value for money

    Enjoy a fantastic lifestyle without the extra costs. No stamp duty, council rates or exit fees.

No Stamp Duty

According to the Property Council of Australia, “downsizing” your home can cost between $29,000 and $75,000 in stamp duty and other costs. Under a secure site agreement in a Hometown Australia land lease community, you pay no stamp duty, instantly saving thousands of dollars on your downsize.

No Exit Fees

Most “retirement villages” charge exit fees, or “deferred management fees”; normally a percentage accrued over a period of time ranging from 25% to 50% when you decide to leave. At Hometown Australia, we charge no exit fees.

No Council Rates

Council rates vary from suburb to suburb and can significantly increase your yearly costs of home ownership with each passing year. Since you own your home but not the land it’s built on in a Hometown Australia community, you pay no council rates.

Retain Capital Gain

In many other living choices, it’s likely within the scope of your agreement that the village will share in any capital gains garnered from the sale of your home. With Hometown Australia, you, or your family, keep 100% of capital gains as cash profit.

Affordable Luxury

In our communities you will find real value for your money. We provide quality homes, with room to move and have options to suit most budgets. And, if you receive any sort of government benefit you may also be eligible for rental assistance to help pay for your site fees.  Hometown Australia offers affordable luxury with no strings attached.

Ideally Located

All locations have been carefully selected to provide residents with the best life has to offer. Whether you’re in search of a sea change or tree change, Hometown Australia has a solution built with you in mind.
