Thinking of downsizing? What are your options?

There could be a host of reasons for you to consider downsizing. Your kids may have flown the nest, your garden may be too large, you may want to release some equity, reduce your monthly outgoings, or you are simply drawn to living in a smaller, more manageable property.

Downsizing isn’t just for retirement. It can be an important choice at any stage of your life, location, health or wealth.

Feeling hot this summer?

One of the fastest growing design trends is the ‘outdoor room’ – and what could represent a better focal point for this than a super-cool hot tub?
