Downsizing your home can offer many advantages, especially if you are looking to move closer to family or save money.
Fewer rooms and less space means reduced cleaning and maintenance time, and smaller homes largely cost less to run – with smaller utility bills and overall reduced consumption.
Additionally, encouraging activity at the top end of the housing market is thought to be one of the best ways of addressing the UK’s current housing crisis.
However, the process of downsizing can often present a number of financial challenges. That is why we are here to help.
What Challenges Can Downsizing Present?
A large part of the stress of downsizing can be attributed to the sale of your old home in alignment with the purchase of your new one. Many people feel pressured to sell their homes as quickly as possible, causing them to end up settling for less or giving up on the idea entirely.
If you are in a situation where you are “asset-rich” but “cash-poor”, a bridging loan can make a huge difference to your situation and can take additional pressure off selling your home.
