Downsizers, downsizing, house in the country


If the children have flown the nest or it is just time to downsize from your current home, County Homesearch can reduce the burden of managing a property that is too large for your needs. Our property finders will work with you to understand exactly what you need from your new home and precisely what size will be manageable for you in the future

We know that downsizing isn’t reserved for retirement – it can happen at any stage of your life and can be for a number of reasons; whether you want to release equity, need a home with better accessibility or maybe it’s just too big to clean!  Whatever your reasons may be, we take the time to understand you and your lifestyle before we start your search.

Finding the right size for you means informing you of the options that are on the market, from traditional bungalows or modern apartments to country retreats and low maintenance homes.  We know amenities and location are as important to your search so we help you think through your current and future needs.  Would you like to be closer to family? Is it important for you to be close to a supermarket or public transport? Would you prefer to be in the countryside or close to cultural activities? Whatever you are looking for, our local expertise and experience will help us to find you your perfect new home.

Moving house can be fraught with stress and tension at any time of life but by downsizing with the help of a property search agency, we can minimise that by doing a lot of the hard work for you. With County Homesearch by your side, you can rest assured that any properties you view will be as close a match as possible to your needs.

If you are looking to downsize but you’re not sure if it is the right decision for you, please visit our contact page or read our blog dedicated to downsizing.
