Retire by the River

Ever wondered how you can free up cash and finally retire in a relaxed lifestyle village environment with NO financial worries? We can show you how! 

Designed for people aged over 55, we have created a housing solution, that is affordable, flexible and secure, allowing you to enjoy life to its fullest!

Firstly, you will live in a premier location; the lovely River Murray township of Waikerie. There are a range of brand new 2 to 3 bedroom and 1 and 2 bathroom homes to choose from in a style to suit every taste and budget. You can also alter any of our designs to suit your needs. Your new home comes ready to move into and includes a carport, fencing and a rainwater tank fully installed.

In addition, you own your new home and are free to sell it in the future and retain all capital gain. There are no entry or exit fees. There are also no council rates or water charges as these are included in the very reasonable site fees.

Lifestyle Village by the River

You are encouraged to utilise all the village facilities including swimming pool and BBQ and entertaining areas but most importantly enjoy the secure environment and friendships that await. Residents will soon be able to enjoy our all new state-of-the-art Village Hub, a flexible multi-purpose facility, featuring a wide-open space meeting hall, fully equipped kitchen, lounge areas, a stunning spacious alfresco living opening up to the village pool and more.

Waikerie has all the creature comforts including shopping, first class health services, the Waikerie Hotel and Club and of course the Murray River. It is the ideal location to “retire in style” and live that relaxed lifestyle for many years to come.

Financial Advantages

There are many unique financial advantages of purchasing and owning a home in the Waikerie Lifestyle Village.

First and foremost, we are upfront with all costs of your home and there are absolutely no hidden fees or charges. We have also developed a unique concept, which focuses on making your home and lifestyle as affordable as possible.

No hidden fees or charges

When you decide to move into the Waikerie Lifestyle Village, we provide a guaranteed price on your home with no hidden fees or charges. You will know exactly what you have to pay before you commit.

No exit fees

If you ever decide to sell your home, there are no exit fees for deferred management fees. The sale price of your home is what you receive – including all capital gains. Furthermore, you can sell your home on the open market and use whatever real estate agency you like. The Waikerie Lifestyle Village will provide support for you throughout this process.

The low cost of homes in the Waikerie Lifestyle Village allows you to free up tens or hundreds of thousands of dollars tied up in your current home to start living the lifestyle you deserve. Do you want a new car? The holiday you have always dreamt of? Or just to live a relaxed lifestyle with no financial worries? All of this and more is possible in the Waikerie Lifestyle Village.
