Why Downsize Your Home When You Retire?

downsize your home for a new start

Downsizing your home is a massive choice that’s not to be taken lightly. But, it could hold the key to enjoying your retirement to the fullest…

The kids have all grown up and flown the nest. The home you’ve enjoyed many happy memories in suddenly feels too empty and big - and you’re left wondering if you’ll enjoy your retirement more if you downsized to a smaller home. 

Well, wonder no more. We’re here to answer your questions, with the biggest benefits you have of downsizing your home.

You’ll have less cleaning to do 

It may seem obvious, but if you downsized you’ll immediately cut down on the amount of cleaning and maintenance you’ll have to do. But more than that, if you moved into a new build, the cleaning will actually be easier for you to keep on top of.

What this does is free up your time. So, you’ll have more to spend doing what you actually love, instead of the things you have to.

If you spend every week dreading the chores and wishing you didn’t have to do them, downsizing might just be the perfect option for you.

You won't have to deal with any repairs

Nothing lasts forever, including houses.

Unfortunately, over time houses start to fall apart. This means you’re constantly spending time repairing the latest thing to fail you or worrying about what might stop working next. It means that precious amounts of your hard-earned retirement fund are spent trying to restore your home’s former glory - instead of experiencing new things and making the most of life.

If you downsized to a new property, you wouldn't have to worry about any of this. What’s more, if you move into a luxury fully furnished park home, it should also be protected by a guarantee, giving you extra peace of mind.
