When it comes to buying and living in an Aspire by Stockland community, Stockland will work with you to keep the financial side of moving easy to understand.

The first question many people ask when enquiring about downsizing is how much will it cost and can I afford it? We recognise the importance of giving you a good understanding of buying, living in, and the resale of your home.

What is the initial cost of moving into Aspire by Stockland?

You will own 100% of the house and 100% of the land (being a lot in a community titles scheme), with no exit fees. The initial cost is basically the “price” you pay for your home and the associated stamp duty. There are a variety of home types and price ranges to choose from.

We encourage you to speak to a Stockland Sales Professional to gain a clear understanding of the financial aspects of moving into your chosen home. We also recommend that you seek independent legal advice before entering into a contract.

We know you want peace of mind and certainty when it comes to your finances. That’s why we work with you to keep the financial side of things easy to understand. 


What are the costs along the way?

You will be charged a quarterly levy which will be applied towards the payment of costs relating to the ongoing operation, maintenance and management of your community.

In addition, just as you would before moving into an over 55s community, you will pay council and water rates and for your personal consumables such as electricity, gas, telephone and internet.

What happens when I leave the community?

When you decide to leave the community the home is yours to sell, there are no exit fees payable and you receive 100% of the sale price of the home (less the normal costs of selling a home, such as commission payable to any sales agent you appoint).

If you have any further queries about the costs of purchasing a home at Aspire by Stockland, we recommend that you speak to a Stockland Sales Professional and seek independent legal and financial advice.
