Rental units available in sought after Retirement Village, Fontaine Bleau

Spanking new, Fontaine Bleau Retirement Village in die well sought after area of Welgelegen, are soon to be occupied by the first fortunate homeowners and tenants. These face brick Single Title Houses and Sectional Apartments are replacing the old fashioned terminology of old age homes through luxury retirement villages. Gone are the days of dark passages and small rooms where the aged would watch you as you pass by. Today’s retirement villages are modern design lock-up and go homes in a security environment. Residents in other developments have also confirmed the advantage of moving whilst you are still fit as a fiddle rather than moving because the siblings have decided that you should due to ill health.

The anticipated completion date of this multi million project is at the end of 2005 with the Main buildings including a 24 Bed sickbay, Assisted Living Apartments, Communal Lounge and Dining Areas, Library, Hair Salon, Bowling greens, Gym, Heated Pool scheduled for the last phase. In addition to all of the above, the whole complex will also be secured with manned security and electrified fencing.

A few Investors have made their units available for rental as from as low as R3 200 pm and occupants will be enjoying 24-hour security during the completion of the complex. Occupation will be available from early July, with only a few units still available.

For those purchasers who were not fortunate to obtain a unit in this popular retirement village, Marie van Rooyen has excellent advise by utilising their current asset’s rental income to subsidise their rental outlay in the village. The value of their existing home would increase in value at a nominal rate, saving the client thousands of rands by unnecessary costs through selling and buying another asset. Traditionally clients have a number of years sentimental involvement in their family homes, and the siblings are not financially strong to takeover the family home.

After saving a few years, siblings tend to buy family homes and upgrade just those homes. By doing that the area are enhanced and communities uplifted by the younger generation moving in. Communities tend to welcome such influx as they are all known to one another.
