We want more socially, ethically & environmentally
to live in
We are a creative collaboration of people passionate about creating a better housing system in Australia to solve problems of financial insecurities, social ills and environmental degradation.
Sun Villages Co-operative is owned by its members, men and women who are pooling their talents, knowledge, life experiences, energy and money to create social and economic value for Australian society with a better housing system. This system will enable more people of all ages to invest in secure, quality housing developments for their own place to live and work, or for a secure investment return as a property investor.
We advocate for the socio-economic benefits of having a national housing system that meets the needs and aspirations of all ages and stages of the life cycle and supports a healthy and productive lifestyle: safe shelter, adequate food, social support and free from censorship and discrimination.
We promote and support the Sun Villages' SMARTER model which integrates unique financial mechanisms, social design and ecological features to create socially, ethically and ecologically sustainable housing in city, periurban and rural areas. These housing projects will create places to live that respect an individual’s need for privacy and independent living and thinking. Most people are innately drawn to living lives honourably and they thrive when they are validated for who they are and what they can contribute to life, with free will.
Socially sustainable design
Minimises recurring expenses
Accessible to any age, long term and transferable
Thriving instead of surviving
Removes bank finance
The model creates significant savings in construction, property management and property investment AND is the only property investment scheme that returns to all shareholders bonus shares of what is normally the developer's profit and bank interest on development funding.
Sun Villages projects can be financed without bank loans through a peer-to-peer funding model with ethical investors and future residents pooling their self-managed super funds and surplus savings to invest into fractional property ownership through shareholdings that are trade-able.
Village residents are offered secure, lifetime, quality accommodation, and non-resident investors receive a predictable, stable, ethical and worry-free return.
