When is the right time to downsize?


Should we sell now? Or wait until we have to?

This is a decision thousands of people have to make every year but which is the right answer? Of course there isn’t one in this scenario, but as a trusted and long established firm of estate agents, we’re asked the question many times. For example, take Mr and Mrs Taylor (and Barny the terrier), who have a stunning Grade II thatched cottage, nestled in the rolling Devon hills. It is absolutely idyllic with 8 acres, stables, a ménage and beautiful views.

So why would they want to move? Now both into their 70’s, looking after the house and the land is becoming harder work. Much as they love it there and are coping perfectly well today, both say that their are increasingly turning towards “what happimage1ens if….”. It isn’t a conversation that anyone really wants to have but it is one that many put off until it’s too late.

Mr and Mrs Taylor have decided to make the move now, while they can fully enjoy their next home, perhaps somewhere with less work, closer to amenities, put some money into the bank for a rainy day and enjoy life. So although there’s no right or wrong, our advice is to give us a call, we deal with these situations all the time and can guide to an answer that is the best for YOU.
