Over 55 and struggling to find an affordable home in which you can enjoy your golden years? Does the sound of life in a secure, centrally located and community-minded retirement village sound appealing? If so, then the Cosmopolitan Retirement Village in Avondale, Auckland is the place for you.
"We understand your preference to have time and cash for holidays, rather than spending it maintaining an expensive house” say Llonia Curreen, manager of the Village. “Our units are appealing since they are priced from just $79,000. We can also assist with finance, and to date, over half of our units are sold”
Even better, the weekly fee, which covers rates, insurance, shared facilities, security and 24 hour medical alarms are from just $49 /week for a studio apartment. “We’ve been able to achieve these rates by forgoing the swimming pool and some of the other luxury facilities some complexes offer, but many residents just don’t need”
“We provide different levels of service options, so unless specialised care is needed you can be confident of not having to move again”
“The well insulated units also have low running costs. On average studio residents pay about $30/month in electricity, with the $320 annual electricity company dividend each of our residents received this year it almost covers the year’s electricity bill” said Llonia.
Your unit will have everything you need for comfort and convenience and you'll enjoy the village's weekly outings, activities and its wonderful facilities which include a lovely landscaped courtyard, lounge, dining room, billiard room, movie theatre and library with internet access and massage chairs “You can do so much in your retirement, we run free computer classes at the village, some of our residents have learnt to use the computer, internet, email and play video games on playstation and wii” said Llonia
What's life like for residents at the Cosmopolitan Retirement Village you may wonder? Well the feedback so far has been overwhelmingly positive.
"The purchase of my unit is the best decision I've ever made," says Mrs French. "I value the security. I feel totally blessed to live here."
This is a sentiment shared by other residents, “I was happy to find independent living, close to amenities and within a safe, caring environment.” said Miss Evans.
“I like the location and the affordability, I feel very safe, comfortable and happy. I enjoy my surroundings, we are a great crowd.” said Mrs White,
"Here I have a feeling of belonging. I can have both companionship and privacy. The movie theatre is my favourite place in the village." Said Mr Allen
You don't have to be retired to buy here. The minimum entry age for the village is 55, and some of the residents like Mr Large are still working. He uses the apartment as his week day crash pad, while spending his weekends at his batch.
"We also have kiwis retiring overseas, but wanting to keep a base in Auckland, and they think the village is a very affordable way to do this," says Llonia.
