SDA Funding is Very Generous
Check out the SDA Price Guide
On a 3 bedroom house providers get between $18,016 and $40,577 PER bedroom if the location factor is 1.
That means the returns on a $500k house (construction only, not land) are still outstanding. There is just no reason we can find to skimp on this.
If Bedrooms Are Not Ensuited Is There a Good Reason?
A couple of the properties we look after don’t have an ensuite to each bedroom. All of our designs do, however, in extremely limited circumstances we have taken on properties without ensuites where they were already built. But there needs to be a compelling reason as to why there isn’t an ensuite to each bedroom and then the property needs to be exceptional in other ways.
It Costs Participants Not a Cent More
The reasonable rent contribution is set at 25% of the disability pension and 100% of rent assistance. So it costs no more to be in a 3 bed house with ensuites to every room and full technology to allow touchless entry then if you were sharing a bedroom.
