House purchases are more often than not sparked by life changes – perhaps a new baby, a promotion, or an impending retirement. Whilst the majority of people want to climb up the housing ladder, there comes a time when stepping back a couple of rungs makes more sense, particularly if it ensures that your home becomes a reflection of your future aspirations.
Downsizing your home can mean upgrading your lifestyle, with more funds available for holidays or perhaps to fulfill a lifetime ambition.
Alternatively, you could purchase a smaller house worth the same value as your current property, but in a more desirable location. A smaller home doesn’t have to be a compromise, particularly when you are retiring; with many developers building stunning, spacious and modern retirement homes in prime locations.
Downsizing requires a positive mindset. Rather than think of moving to your ‘retirement’ home, it’s important to focus on the new possibilities ahead. Plan ahead, have a good clear out and get ready for the next adventure!
