Rightsizing, the trend toward modern apartment living, is rapidly growing in popularity as Melbourne residents embrace a life of low maintenance and convenience.

The top priorities for rightsizing – finding the right size home for your lifestyle – include location, amenities, and proximity to everyday services such as shopping, dining, transport and education.

R&F Property Australia’s Live City at Ropeworks project offers one of Melbourne’s best rightsizing opportunities due to its location in the heart of Footscray, high quality design and huge array of future amenities.

The Ropeworks precinct will feature a wide range of apartments, set amid heritage buildings and laneways, cafes, convenience shopping and public open spaces. It will provide a sense of security for residents, all in a well-connected and vibrant neighbourhood.

The low maintenance benefits of apartment living have been a big drawcard for our rightsizing residents, who are excited that they will be part of a thriving world-class lifestyle destination like Ropeworks.

According to Knight Frank’s Rightsizing – Australian Prime Residential Insight 2020 report, homebuyers are wanting a stress-free lifestyle so they can spend more of their precious leisure time on having fun than doing household chores and yard work.

Rightsizing can apply to all buyer types from retirees and empty nesters to first home buyers and young professionals with busy lives that a want a home without the hassles.
