Our Community

Location - where do you see yourself enjoying retirement?

First and foremost, establish a location that you’d like to live in. Are you looking for something close to where you are now? Are you one for the seaside or do you enjoy being amongst nature in the country? Having an idea of where you want to live will narrow down the options. 

When considering a location, it’s important to look into what the surrounding town offers. For the sake of convenience, check how far away it is from grocery stores and shopping centres. Your weekly shop should be close-by and easily accessible. It’s also good to check for the availability of public transport; are there bus stops or trains nearby? For those who have regular appointments with medical specialists or GPs, it’s good to check how close the Lifestyle Community is to these facilities, as well as the pharmacy and hospital. Considering your life admin can seem tedious, but it’s an important factor when choosing a Lifestyle Community that’s right for you. 

On the more fun side of things, consider whether the location supports the things you’re passionate about. For example, if you enjoy good food and dining out, then see if the Lifestyle Resort is close to restaurants, cafes or farmer's markets. Proximity to the things you enjoy is worth considering; this time is yours to make the most out of!

Financial freedom

You’ve spent years working hard, and now it’s time to focus on you and the things that make you happy. Knowing your finances and choosing a home that allows you to feel financially free and secure is essential. Establish your budget for a home that allows you to live within your means and feel happy and comfortable, then look into Lifestyle Communities that fit these criteria.  

Financial freedom is at the core of Lucas Lifestyle Estate Ballarat’s purpose. As such, Lucas Lifestyle Estate Ballarat is a land lease community that provides a very affordable option for those over 50s. This means that you own the home and lease the land, which is covered by a weekly site fee. Better yet, when buying a home at Thyme Lifestyle Resort, there are no entry fees or stamp duty payable. All of these factors combined make for a fantastic, affordable way to live in a beautiful home and enjoy the peace of financial freedom.
