Like you, every property is unique, so we’ll just need a few details before we can make you an offer.
Between separation, changes in circumstances and ill health, there are plenty of personal reasons that could lead to you downsizing your home. Whether it’s to secure funds to improve your quality of life or to ensure you have a bit of spare money set away for a rainy day, moving into a home more appropriate for your living conditions can help you live more comfortably.
Moving into a cheaper property gives you the opportunity to not only lower your overall mortgage payments, but also use some of the profit you make from the sale of your current property to pay off any debts you may have accrued over the years.
People tend to start thinking about downsizing to a smaller property when children leave home, with no more need of the extra space, homeowners can free up extra funds. Sometimes, downsizing can be the best option as family members begin to get older and struggle to get around their current home. A smaller property may be more accessible, especially as the size of your family home and garden becomes unmanageable.
When considering a smaller home, it’s important to remember that there are a wide variety of fees associated with the transfer of property. Before beginning the process, estate agent fees, legal costs and even stamp duty should be considered to discover whether it is truly worth the move. Alongside this, there is always the risk that the sale of your property can be delayed if you get stuck in a property chain.
While you want to quickly move from one property to the next, the reliance on others throughout the property chain can swiftly become a burden, especially if you’re downsizing for financial purposes. The longer you have to wait, the longer you have to stay in your bigger, more expensive property and if you’re struggling, this is only going to worsen your debts as you wait for the right buyer to come along.
Even worse, if the property chain breaks down completely, then you could lose out on the property that you were planning on downsizing to. This means that you’ll have to start the entire process again; going to viewings, paying for more surveys and negotiating prices.
