Should you downsize now or later?

Should you downsize now or later?

Should you downsize now or later?


I speak to so many people who know that they really should be downsizing to a smaller property but they have lived in their family home for so long that they just cannot let go. In some cases they have lived in the same property since they married, raised their children there and sent them to uni and saw them leave home, get married and have children of their own.


How I look at it is however hard it is to give up the family home, it is better to think about moving whilst you are able, rather than when circumstances force you. It is inevitable that as we get older, gardening and housework become more of a challenge. Maybe we need to tackle the problem before it actually becomes a problem!
My advice is to start looking at smaller properties to check out what might suit you. An apartment can be ideal for some, where other people may not be able to live without a small piece of garden to tend. It is not about giving up everything, just about make life easier, giving yourself more time to do the things you enjoy.
