Searching for 'over 55' or retirement property to buy or rent?
Modern ‘over 55’ communities and retirement villages are designed to meet the needs of today’s babyboomers and active retirees, offering high quality resort–style living with larger villas or apartments and five star facilities such as swimming pools, golf courses, bowling greens, club houses, restaurants and cinemas and much more.
Many retirees “downsize” - selling the family home in a capital city to release capital, and moving into a lower maintenance property nearby, such as an apartment, townhouse or retirement village unit. Often people decide to move away to a lower cost location seeking a higher quality of life, once they no longer need to commute to work in the city. Coastal holiday destinations are especially popular, and in addition to providing the attractions of a holiday lifestyle, they offer a range of ‘over 55’ communities and retirement villages which also offer social activities and the convenience and security of a “lock up and leave” home when residents want to travel. Many of these communities also provide handy caravan and boat parking areas for residents.
The Seniors Housing Online website caters for those searching for ‘over 55’ communities and retirement villages Australia-wide, enabling search criteria to be tailored to suit your specific requirements. In addition to searching hundreds of villages by state, region or suburb, price range and number of bedrooms, you can also sort search results by on-site facilities, including those with swimming pools, golf courses, pets allowed and many more categories.
The website also has a useful News and Information page containing a range of articles to help with your retirement planning, including links to information on benefits, pensions, superannuation, proposed changes to laws and government policy, and helpful financial calculators so you can estimate when you can retire and how much you will have to live on.

NEW COMMUNITY SUPPORT SERVICES SEARCH
You can use the website to search your local area to find community based support services, including in-home care, day centres, respite care and more. So you can maintain your independence for longer, and hopefully avoid entirely, or at least defer, a later move into an aged care facility. The government is moving to fund more in-home care packages, meaning even if you move into an independent living villa or unit now and then later on find you need some help, you will have the option of staying on, receiving more support and hopefully not have to move again!
View search results for in-home care and other community based support services.
