A SUPPORTED living project at Tweed Heads has sold 12 properties amassing $4 million in just one month.
Fairways Supported Living is bucking the downward sales trend, according to project manager Gregg Hewitt (pictured).
“Forget about a stalled, flat property market across the board – this sales success is simply unheard of in a sector where seniors are finding it increasingly difficult to sell their homes in order to purchase a property better suited to their changing lifestyle needs,” he says.
“The Fairways lifestyle has played an integral role in achieving such an outstanding result (and) one that sets a benchmark in offering a new alternative to seniors.”
Sales manager Therese Wheeler says only a few remaining homes are available in the project. She attributes the latest sales run to two factors.
“When they come to Fairways they are so happy to see there really is an option that allows them to retain their independence and dignity and space to allow them to have their possession with them in a beautiful home complete with its own spacious living area, full kitchen and laundry, as well as nursing care and support, ranging from low care to dementia care, around the clock,” she says.
“Secondly, the children of seniors that come to Fairways looking for a place for mum or dad or both are often living interstate. They are worried about their parents, who live here in the local area, and who may have short term memory loss, or be experiencing loneliness.
“Their parents are happy in their community and don’t want to move interstate. The look of relief on their faces when they visit Fairways Supported Living is just so wonderful to see.”
