Downsizing your home to upsize your lifestyle – Sunshine Coast Downsizing Forum

Downsizing your home to upsize your lifestyle - Sunshine Coast Downsizing Forum

As the over-50 demographic evolves, so do the living options available to them. When it comes to ageing, the way over-50s in Australia think, feel and live is light years away from the tired stereotypes perpetuated in the media and the out-of-date assumptions held by the general population.

This is one of the key drivers behind the increasing popularity of over-50s lifestyle resorts – also known as land lease communities – among downsizers, retirees or those simply wanting a low-maintenance lifestyle to enjoy more freedom.

GemLife Palmwoods Sales Manager Liz Millroy said today’s over-50s were thriving, living social and active lives with a passion for adventure.

“For many over-50s, downsizing is an opportunity to downscale what was once been a perfect home but may now feel too large or too difficult to maintain. Instead, they want a right-size home, ideal for a lock-up and go lifestyle, that allows people to live their best lives,” she said.

“GemLife resorts are master-planned communities designed to facilitate a high quality, active and social lifestyle which has huge appeal among downsizers.”

Despite the expanding awareness of lifestyle resort living, Liz said there was still some confusion about the land lease community model which is why GemLife is presenting an informative downsizing forum to be held on Wednesday, 6 April, hosted by GemLife Sales and Marketing Director, Andrew Coulter.
