What price can I expect to pay for an Amaroo villa?
Our current villas range from $230,000 to $405,000. However, pricing may fluctuate due to market conditions.
If I purchase an Amaroo villa, do I have complete ownership?
No. When you purchase an independent villa you will enter a Lease for Life agreement with Amaroo.
How do I purchase an Amaroo villa?
If you find an Amaroo independent villa you would like to purchase, your first step is to contact our friendly team to view the property.
Once an offer has been put on the villa, Amaroo will have 10 working days to accept.
After your offer has been accepted, we will require you to submit an application form which includes a payable fee of $660.
A disclosure document will then be provided to you, which you will legally have to hold for 10 working days.
Once the disclosure document is returned, a settlement date will be confirmed, and a $1000 deposit will be payable (this is taken off the premium price).
You will then be required to sign the Lease for Life document and once settlement money has been paid to Amaroo, you will receive your keys.
What type of offers are accepted on our villas?
Conditional offer subject to sale:
Amaroo requires your listing agreement with the chosen agency to prove your house is on the market within 10 working days. Amaroo is still able to show the unit to interested parties. If a better offer is made during this time, we will give you 48 hours to make your offer unconditional, meaning we will need proof of funds or a confirmed settlement date.
Amaroo will require proof of loan approval.
