Why downsize your home when you retire?

Otter Valley Park

Downsizing your home is a big decision 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 help and have put together just some of the biggest benefits you can enjoy if you decide to downsize your home.

Less cleaning

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 brand new home, 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!

Minimal maintenance

Nothing lasts forever, including houses.

Unfortunately, over time houses start to fall apart, especially older houses.  This may mean that you feel like you’re constantly spending time and money repairing the latest thing to fail you, or worrying about what might stop working next.  It also may mean 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 this. What’s more, if you move into a luxurious, fully furnished park home, it should also be protected by a guarantee, giving you extra peace of mind.

A new home to fall in love with

Remember how excited and happy you were when you first moved into your home?  Downsizing gives you a chance to experience this all over again!  If you downsize to a park home, you can have your next home fit your exact needs and requirements, which means no more shopping around to find the right home for you.  With a luxurious, fully furnished park home, you’ll be ready to move into a space that you’re bound to love.  No fuss!
