ARE you retired or nearing retirement? Is it getting hard to maintain your home and lifestyle?
If so, then consider making a move to a retirement village now, rather than waiting until a health or ageing issue forces your hand.
Retirement villages can offer all the benefits of freehold title with the limited obligations of a lessee.
For a monthly charge, indexed to a percentage of the age pension and pooled into a residents' levy account, a retirement village resident meets only their own electricity, telephone, food, clothing and personal expenses.
The residents' levy account meets the costs of all rates, taxes, buildings insurance, village management, building maintenance and gardens upkeep.
On top of this you become part of a community and enjoy the many village facilities.
At Rosedale Gardens, in Deaves Road, Cooranbong, these facilities include organised activities, a heated swimming pool, a restaurant serving lunch seven days a week, a recreation centre and an air-conditioned bus.
General manager Denise Ware said: "We have a beautiful, spacious site inhabited by a wonderful, caring community. Our sales offer is unique in its width, with one-bedroom units from $85,000 to three-bedroom villas up to $310,000."
