If You're Downsizing

Thinking of downsizing your house?

By moving to a smaller home, maintenance and upkeep will cost you less, so you can free up more time and disposable income to do all the things you always wanted. Some people also choose to downsize their house to live in a more desirable location or a high-spec home.

What to do before you downsize

When you’re moving to a smaller home it’s important to de-clutter. This is best done before you sell your home to help us take gorgeous marketing pictures and create a sense of space at viewings.

We can also provide you with tips on staging and any minor DIY projects that will make your home more attractive to potential buyers.

When it comes to selling your home to downsize, here’s what we do

  • We will prepare a full suite of marketing material for your property
  • We will contact our database of waiting buyers
  • Viewings are usually accompanied and our key holding service enables us to show people around without disturbing you
  • We will endeavour to give you feedback within 48 hours and report back regularly
  • Offers will be passed on immediately and we’ll work very hard to achieve the right price for you
  • When an offer is agreed we check out everyone in the chain, not just your buyer, to ensure your sale is proceedable
  • Our sales progression team will chase up mortgage lenders, solicitors and other estate agents involved in the chain to make sure everything runs smoothly in a timely manner
  • You are guaranteed our support all the way to a successful completion

Once your house is on the market, we'll do lots of work behind the scenes communicating with all parties to help achieve the highest price for your home, move along negotiations and, of course, keeping you updated every step of the way.

If you’re also looking to move to a smaller house in or around Newbury, Devizes, Lambourn, Marlborough and Didcot, we’ll let you know as soon as any suitable properties are listed, something you won’t get with an online estate agent.
