What are the myths and facts about downsizing? Listen to Belinda Woolrych as she discusses this interesting topic for empty nesters.
Myth #1: Downsizing is for old people.
Fact – In order to get more fun out of a downsize, my extensive research proves you can be as young as you feel! (No really) Downsizing should be a strong consideration for anyone whose kids have finished their exams and potentially Yr 1 at uni!
Top Tip – book a meeting with your financial planner and get cracking organising. You will have some plans to put in place so please talk about it YEARS before you were expecting to!
Myth #2: Downsizing is overwhelming
Fact – It can be, if you let it, I have seen many downsizers in this situation. They do all tell me however, that they wish they had not have worried so much when it was all done. With careful planning and consideration of the full position, with the right people helping you, it will not be overwhelming.

Myth #3: I can’t afford to downsize
Fact – You can afford it, with the right advice and the right people helping you. It may be that it is more expensive if you want to downsize to the golden triangle near the beach in your dreams. Getting the right people to advise on accurate property prices and off-market opportunities, you can afford to downsize.
Myth #4: I’m too young to downsize
Fact – Refer to Myth #1!
Myth #5: I have nowhere to go
Fact – Yes you do! There is always somewhere to go, and DO NOT let it stop you from starting to walk along the preparation road.. In fact it is more important for you to start working on your downsizing and decluttering before you have any next home locked in, so you don’t feel under pressure. Once you are decluttered and your property is looking fabulous then you are free to fall in love with the next home!
