Retirement living on your terms

Tuesday, 12 December 2023

No two people are the same. Some like to plan, some go with the flow. Similar to how people do their Christmas shopping! That’s why we have four ways to buy.

When you’re considering retirement living, a clear understanding of contracts, costs and value is essential.

At Keyton, we're committed to guiding you with respect, transparency and care along the way. That's why we have four different ways to buy - to give you choice when deciding how to buy your new home. The power is in your hands to enjoy retirement exactly the way you want it.

Prepaid Plan
The Prepaid Plan is ideal for those who like to get everything settled in advance. You'll pay for the price of your property as well as an upfront management fee. This means you can relax knowing this cost has been taken care of already. When it comes to leaving the village, Lendlease can help you sell your home at the market rate, and any capital gains from your home will be yours.

Refundable Contribution
Choosing to pay for your home via a Refundable Contribution gives you the security of knowing your money is guaranteed by paying more in a refundable upfront contribution, with no additional management fee at exit. There are no selling costs or pressures, no legal fees and no reinstatement costs to worry about.

Deferred Management Fee
A Deferred Management Fee (DMF) contract is a great choice for those looking to make the most out of their retirement now. By deferring part of the costs of your home until after you re-sell, you can buy in at a more affordable price and keep some cash in the bank to continue enjoying the things you love.

Pay As You Go
Available at select villages only, Pay As You Go gives you the freedom to experience Serviced Apartments without having to sell your home or other assets beforehand. With this option, you'll pay a security deposit, a non-refundable establishment fee and monthly instalments. When leaving the village, your security deposit will be returned with no extra fees or costs. You won't need to worry about capital gains, loss of your property, or have any selling pressures.
