What are the benefits of downsizing in 2018?
Finding your dream home can be a challenge. If your children have left home or if you have too much space, you might be looking to downsize. The main reasons to downsize are to release equity, be mortgage free, or to live in a home appropriate to the way you wish to live. Lower running costs and the temptation to travel can be very attrractive!
If you have lived in your home for sometime you may have more equity tied up in it than you think. Unfortunately there will always be a compromise when downsizing; the furniture you own might not fit, or the garden might be much smaller than you are used to. Always prepare a list of must-haves for your new home and approach every property you have shortlisted with an open mind.
