Still pondering investing in Eastlands Mature Lifestyle Estate?

Post by: Eastlands Estate, 15 Sep 2016

Here’s why you should.  
Investing in property is a major commitment. We get that, but often misperceptions cloud this important decision, leaving you more uncertain than ever.

We’ve been actively dealing with over 50s and property investors for the past six years that Eastlands Mature Lifestyle Estate has been under development, and can honestly tell you that during this time, we’ve heard it all.

For every reason potential buyers have for not investing in Eastlands, we have a stack of exceptionally good reasons why you should.

It’s in Benoni: When last did you take a drive through the beautiful country areas of Benoni North? Not only do the peaceful rural surroundings make for wonderful views that rival those of Johannesburg’s north, but they also support a number of exclusive residential estates whose residents are actively seeking the solitude and privacy of this in-demand country area. The perception of Benoni and what it has to offer is fast changing; come and see for yourself!

It’s too far out: Benoni is centrally located with easy access to both Joburg and Pretoria, it’s a stone’s throw from OR Tambo International Airport, and has good access to the Gautrain.

There are no public amenities nearby: There are three shopping centres with retail stores, restaurants, chemists, ATMs etc. within a 10km radius of the estate. We have also negotiated delivery services to the estate, and are looking at a possible shuttle service between the estate and the surrounding areas for residents.

I’m worried about security: We have a state-of-the-art security system that encompasses all areas of the estate. It includes a 2.4m boundary wall with individual zoned electric fencing; an extensive network of CCTV cameras; 24-hour active guarding; 24-hour secure access control; and a panic alarm system in all homes, linked to the security gatehouse, frail care centre and armed response. Contractors also have a separate, secured entrance for use during construction.

It’s too expensive: We are proud to say Eastlands Mature Lifestyle Estate is competitively priced for the extensive scope of its offerings. Just look at what the price of your home includes: vegetable garden allotments; pet-friendly gardens; estate management by one of the country’s foremost authorities in senior living and person-centred care; and access to doctors’ rooms; a pharmacy; and a main lodge with a range of highly sought-after lifestyle facilities. Oh, and the size of our units, which range from 86m² to 202m², are perfectly in line with contemporary living. We sell homes, not matchboxes!

I need to sell my existing property first:  We have secured partnerships with leading local real estate agents to expedite sales. Why not let our partner agents sell your home for you?

I’m waiting for the wellness and care centres to be built: These flagship infrastructure projects have been scheduled for construction later to protect our early buyers and residents, who would otherwise be liable now to contribute to these costs through expensive levies. We aim to keep costs down and make our levies as affordable as possible by spreading the costs across more residents once the estate is full.

I’m not 50 years old yet: Yes, Eastlands is designed for residents aged 50 and older, but that doesn’t mean you can’t invest in a unit in the estate now and rent it out to other over 50s looking for this enviable lifestyle. Eastlands is a sectional title estate, so there are no strings attached, and the rental income will significantly boost your monthly personal savings!

I’m considering investing in another local retirement village: Eastlands is no ordinary retirement village; it’s an upmarket lifestyle estate for the young at heart. Hands down, we offer you more bang for your retirement buck, and invite you to compare our superior estate offerings with others in the area. You’ll be glad you did.

You see, there are so many good reasons to buy your retirement property with us (and zero reasons not to).

So the only question left to ask, is why NOT invest in Eastlands?
