Here are the key ways to downsize well, according to the best estate agents in Solihull:

Plan in advance.

Don’t wait until the last minute to start considering downsizing. Start planning early and take your time to consider all of your options.


Educate yourself on the risks of large sales chains: It’s essential to understand the potential risks involved in large sales chains, such as the possibility of the sale falling through.

Understand where you want to move to.

Think about what you want in your new home and where you want to live. Do your research and visit different neighbourhoods to get a feel for what’s out there.

Maintain cohesion in the family unit or with a partner.

Downsizing can be stressful, especially if you’re doing it as a family or with a partner. Make sure to communicate openly and honestly with each other to ensure everyone is on the same page. Please find a link regarding a great article on communication whilst moving by Zen Move HERE.
