Our sales process

Buying a home

When buying a home at Lifestyle Communities, we like to make sure you feel supported, empowered and fully in control of your decision.

We’ll work closely with you through each step of the process so you know what to expect at all times.

Buying a brand new home

Here’s what to expect:

1) Visit 

Visit a community to see the homes and facilities and talk to us about what you need.

2) $500 Deposit

Choose your home design and lot. When you’re ready, pay the fully refundable $500 holding deposit to secure your home.

3) Confirmation 

Choose any home variations you’d like to make and select internal colours. A confirmation deposit of $500 is now payable. Once paid, your total deposit amount of $1,000 is now non-refundable.

4) Plan review meeting

Once your building plans become available, your Project Manager and Lifestyle Consultant will meet with you to explain these in detail. Construction of your new home will commence in-line with our building schedule.

5) Contract read

At the contract read stage, we sit down and discuss your contract in detail and answer any questions you may have. Once you’ve decided to sign the contract for your new home, a deposit of $4,000 is payable. The balance of your total home payment will be payable on settlement.

6) Pre-settlement 

Your Community Manager and Project Manager will walk you through your brand new home and demonstrate how everything works.

This is your opportunity to check the home for any issues. We’ll then help you prepare for settlement and anything else you may need before move-in day.

7) Settlement 

Once you’ve settled on your existing home, you’ll go through the final legal process of taking ownership and paying the balance of your new home at Lifestyle Communities.

8) Move-in 

The BIG DAY arrives! We’re here to help make the move as smooth as possible and will have tea and coffee ready for you upon arrival.

Our Smart buy guarantee helps you buy your home secure in the knowledge you’re making a safe and wise decision.

Buying an established home

If you’re purchasing an established home in one of our developed communities, the process is a little different.

Once you’ve found a home you’re interested in buying, you’ll pay a non-refundable deposit of $2,000 to secure your home.

At your ‘contract read’ appointment, we’ll explain the Lifestyle Communities site agreement and sales contract in detail, answering any questions you have along the way. At this stage, a deposit of $3,000 is now payable. The balance of your total home payment will be payable on settlement.

Once you’ve settled on your existing home, you’ll go through the final legal process of taking ownership and paying the balance of your new home at Lifestyle Communities.

Finally, you’ll move in!  We’re here to make the move as smooth as possible and will have tea and coffee ready for you on arrival.
