“Marketing used to be about making a myth and telling it.
Now it’s about telling a truth and sharing it.”

Marc Mathieu

Are you looking to get a competitive edge in marketing your development?

SunLife Australia marketing focuses on the specialist sales and marketing approach to the over 50s independent living community who seek quality ‘freehold’ homes, resort-style facilities and a total sense of community, with no entry or exit fees.

From being sensitive to buyers that may well have to sell their family home, understanding their financial or health situation, the impact of a move on family and friends, along with simply the fear of packing up and moving with years of possessions collected. 

Intimate knowledge of market needs and how to package an over 50s development is critical to a successful sales and marketing process.

SunLife Australia Marketing specialises in over 50s and over 55s independent living sales and marketing of freehold Independent Living Apartments (ILA) and Independent Living Villas (ILA) Australia wide where property developers have adopted the SunLIfe brand.

Our branding, brand standard, brand recognition and core values of quality property, resort style facilities, and a focus on community are central to our vision which our marketing and sales speaks to. Our market is not just retirement, but to the ever growing community of those still working full or part-time as well as retirees. Like minded people who want to enjoy a total sense of community.

What is SunLife Australia not?

It is important to understand what SunLife Australia is not. SunLife Australia and hence SunLife Australia Marketing is not involved in high care, as that is a specialised area. We do not generally provide doctor, hairdressing or other services such as that ‘on site’ as we encourage the residents as part of community life to be involved in the broader town or city community.

However, while SunLife does not provide ‘high care’ services we build relationships with a whole range of in-home care providers both government and private, an essential element in retirement communities and an important part of the SunLife brand standard.

What about research?

SunLife Oxbridge can undertake research of a prospective market and identify key marketing and sales opportunities, formulating a strategy, and then producing and delivering the material to a developer. The marketing coordination of SunLife Oxbridge marketing brings all the areas together to be effective and streamlined.

What are the costs?

Depending on the scope of marketing and sales chosen by the developer as well as the size of the project itself, will determine the costs involved. This will be assessed on a case by case basis but generally involves commission and a marketing retainer.

Why should I choose SunLife Australia marketing over another company?

SunLife Australia marketing are specialists in this type of marketing, we know the product and are continually researching improved means of optimising market reach.

As developers ourselves we are performance orientated and seek to maximise results while minimising the project costs for developers. We intimately know your concerns, risks, and what is at stake.

What are the steps from here?

As we are developers ourselves, we have a philosophy which is results focused and this is instilled in our approach. A property developer needs to clearly identify the attributes of the site to be developed and work with us to establish demand and sales factors .

We work to clearly understand development status as to land ownership, approvals and prospective development program and can then provide a preliminary proposal for consideration. If adopted, we then provide a comprehensive market scope proposal which includes costing and the market program.

How long does each step take?

The steps will be project dependent and outlined in prior discussions for developers. We appreciate the time sensitive nature of development and for this reason want to minimise the time for each step, however, we also recognise the importance of careful planning to maximise results.

What are your previous completed projects?

We have numerous successful developments across Australia including Ramada Hervey Bay, Dockside Mildura, Sky Gardens in Mt Gravatt, and many more. After seeing the potential in the over 50s retirement living we have focused on this market with developments such as BayLife and Summerfield.

Who are your strategic partners?

Through developing around Australia, we have forged important sales and marketing relationships. For example, our partnership with OxBridge allows us access to over 700 agents around Australia to sell property through.
