Secure Your Future - Affordable Retirement with a Granny Flat

No matter how you got to this stage, you’re ready to put some action into setting up the next stage of your life. A Granny Flat is a useful and popular strategy for single older women to secure their future. Cubitt’s is there to provide reassurance – every step of the way. 

Using equity in your home

If you own or are close to owning your own home, you can use equity from this asset to build a Granny Flat. Some choose to build a Granny Flat in their backyard for tenants, some who are ready to downsize, move into the brand-new Granny Flat themselves and rent out their big family home for larger rental sums – no need to retire just on your Superannuation.

Moving in with your children

Family is everything. Multigenerational living and moving in with family is now so common, there are specific guidelines from Centrelink on how to set up a Granny Flat Agreement so as to maintain your Pension and not affect the capital gains in the home its built on. Plus, with the average cost of entering a retirement village or aged care facility at over $450,000 with ongoing monthly charges - a deluxe, bespoke Granny Flat for a $200,000 (on average) simply doesn’t compare. 

Take care of yourself

There’s no hurry. It’s good to plan ahead, be organised and work out how you’ll make decisions with your family. Our team at Cubitt’s know there’s lots to think about and we’ll take the time to listen exactly on your plans to move forward. There’s no obligation from our free onsite Design Consultation –it’s a first step in understanding all the options as you secure your financial future. 


Our tradies are chosen for skill and respectful attitude  

Heidi was keen to keep her parents close later in life. Driven by comfort and accessibility, the family chose the Tomaree 2 bedroom Granny Flat design with a large outdoor alfresco area that complemented their outdoor lifestyle.

Living independently and staying connected was critical for Heidi's parents. This Granny Flat on their property was a way to create a mini version of the family home they had enjoyed throughout their lives.

Beyond the end goal, the process of the build was extremely important to Heidi and her family. They wanted to take the time to get the build exactly the way they wanted.
