Lifestyle Village Buying Guide
If you are interested in living at El Caballo you can contact us on 08 9573 3777 and talk to one of our friendly sales team or send us an enquiry on the Contact Us page. We can then make an appointment for you to view the village at a time suitable to you. By making an appointment this allows us to serve you better and give you a full village tour, showing you the various homes for sale and the village facilities.
Our display homes are open daily, 11am until 3pm, or by appointment.
The Next Steps
Once you have made the decision to move to El Caballo, one of our sales team will help you complete an Offer to Purchase. At this time you can secure your site in the village and select which home you would like to build. A deposit is required to be paid at this time, however it is fully refundable.
Normally the Offer to Purchase is subject to the sale of your existing home. If you can't sell your home or circumstances change the deposit will be refunded.
During this time we will give you some information including the Residential Site Agreement (the site Lease) and the Village Policy which contains the basic rules and guidelines for everyone in the village to ensure a harmonious lifestyle for all of our residents. You can ask as many questions as you like, we're here to help.
Once you have an offer on your existing home (usually conditional) we will set up a meeting with you, us and our builder, Fleetwood Homes. At this meeting you can discuss any changes you wish to make to the home and finalise all of your colour and material selections.
When the sale of your existing home becomes unconditional, so does the purchase of your home at El Caballo. We will ask you and your settlement agent to sign some forms and then we will confirm the order for Fleetwood Homes to commence construction on your new home.
Around 12-14 weeks later, you'll be living in your brand new home at El Caballo.
The 10 Week Gap
There is a period after you have settled on the sale of your existing home and before your new home at El Caballo is ready. This is what we call the 10 week gap. At El Caballo we understand this can be a worrying time for our clients and therefore we offer something that is really unique in our industry.
You will have access to FREE accommodation and FREE storage for your belongings that will be coming with you to your new home. Better yet, this is all on-site at El Caballo, so you can get to know your neighbours and start enjoying the village lifestyle immediately.
Generally, finance from banks is not available to buy into a lifestyle village. Our clients normally use the equity in their existing home or funds from superannuation depending on their circumstances.
There are some circumstances where we may be able to offer vendor finance.
If you have any queries about finance please contact our sales team to discuss options which may be available to you.
