The new Liveable Homes initiative has been developed with Australia's ageing population in mind, with the goal to create homes that will continue to cater for people throughout their lives. This could be something to consider if you're interested in building your own real estate in Bunbury in the near future.
As the number of people aged over 65 is expected to double over the next 25 years, the necessity of universal access features are becoming more important in new homes than ever before. Not only could this affect families who stay in their properties for extended periods of time, but new design qualities are likely to help increase the potential buyer pool during resale.
Some of these features include doorways that are level to the ground, rails along the sides of stairwells, and more sustainable construction methods and materials to help improve the longevity of the household.
If you're interested, be sure to discuss these options with your builders and home designers to take full advantage of the possible property options available to you. Future proofing your house will help to ensure your property doesn't lose value and remains a strong accommodation option in the long run.
