Are you thinking of Downsizing?

Are You Thinking of Downsizing?

The definition of a Downsizer is “a person who moves to a smaller property, typically after they retire”. In The Hills District, we represent a growing population of downsizers who are looking to sell their family home and move to a smaller, more manageable property and enjoy their retirement.

Over the last 15 years we have successfully helped dozens of clients achieve their downsizing goal, however quite often this process is time-consuming and stressful for them. There are a number of reasons for this, including having to pack up their family home and a lifetime of possessions to fit into a much smaller sized home, feeling stressed about preparing their home for sale and getting ready for open homes. It usually has been a number of years since they have bought or sold property and the whole process and where to start can seem overwhelming.

That is where we can help. We have partnered with a team of experts to give timely advice to make the process of downsizing simple and efficient. Our experts include Chris Jones from Longevity Retirement Planning and Angela Reynolds from Harmonia At Home, plus our own downsizing in-house expert Chris De Celis.
