Free Advice from Property Guru Andrew Winter



Industry experts unite to empower local retirees

One of the biggest decisions retirees will make is when and if they should move out of their family home and investigate more appropriate lifestyle options.

Today's retirees are active and want to live somewhere that will enhance their lifestyle and support their independence now and in the future.

Downsizing is a popular choice for many, but understanding all the options available and knowing the best way to sell their home can be a daunting task.

To help people who are in this position, Australian Unity has joined forces with Andrew Winter, the property guru and host of Selling Houses Australia. The sixth season is currently on Foxtel's Lifestyle Channel on Wednesdays at 8.30pm.

Andrew Winter has more than 25 years experience in the property trade and is obsessed with houses. Along with presenting Selling Houses Australia, Andrew operates a consultancy that helps people sell homes. He believes that if you haven’t sold your house within two months then you’re doing something wrong.

Australian Unity and Andrew Winter, together with Heather Wallach, a downsizing specialist from Classic Moves, and a local real estate expert, are holding a 'Retirement Living Masterclass' to support retirees looking for information and advice.

Andrew Walton, General Manager Corporate Development for Australian Unity Retirement Living, said the class will cover current real estate trends, effective home-selling strategies and advice on how to create an action plan for living today's ideal retirement lifestyle.

"We are running this Masterclass because we recognise the emotion and practicalities behind making a decision to move into a retirement community. It's an important step and we want to help educate and empower local retirees to make a decision that's right for them," Mr Walton said.

The free two hour seminar will be followed by refreshments and additional time to allow participants to meet Andrew and the Masterclass team and ask further questions.

The event is being held at:

Geelong Grove, 50 Barwarre Road, Grovedale VIC 3216

Wednesday 13 March 2013, 2-4pm

As seats are limited, registration is essential via phone: 1800 998 805 or email: retirementliving@australianunity.com.au
