Wentworth Communtiy Housing has come together with local experts and businesses to present the very first Garden Flat Expo.
The Expo is a one-stop shop for home owners who are thinking about their financial future and are looking for an affordable product they could build in their backyard and rent in the Blue Mountains and Nepean district.
Small Garden Flats of around 20–25m2 are far more affordable to build than large 2 or 3 bedroom garden flats as they are around half the price.
By encouraging an increase in the supply of small garden flats, we are tackling the shortage of low-cost permanent housing as many singles and couples are looking for smaller and more affordable homes in our communities.
The Garden Flat Expo will bring exhibitors including town planners, bushfire consultants, mortgage brokers, banks, real estate agents, garden flat builders, and who else can help homeowners discover if a garden flat in their backyard is the right option for them.
Wentworth will offer a limited number of incentive packages for home owners who want to go the extra step and offer their home to someone facing homelessness.
We will nominate a suitable tenant to go into the property, with the owners’ consent, and provide tenancy management for free, support the tenant and cover vacancies over a 2 to 3 year period.
The investor is guaranteed a $150 per week, $7,800 annual rental return from Wentworth.
