Additional space

One of the main reasons to upsize your property is for the additional space it includes. There could be a variety of reasons why you need or want this space. This could be led by becoming recently married, wishing to create a family, or desiring a new space for working or certain hobbies. This would create a comfortable living environment for you and your family.

Social life

Having a larger amount of space allows you to host and entertain events, creating an exciting and fulfilling environment around you. This could enhance your social life and mental wellbeing all while creating long-lasting memories within the walls of your new home.

Future investment

Upsizing is an investment, but it is a more financially challenging one. Larger houses get higher in value as time goes on, allowing you to make money over a long period of time. It is very important to ensure you are financially stable before upsizing, as it takes a lot of upkeep and attention to maintain the value of the larger property.

Benefits of downsizing

Simpler lifestyle

The key to downsizing your house is to simplify your way of life. Having a smaller home allows you to focus more on your life outside of your home. Maybe you now have empty space within your home, as all your family have flown the nest and you’re not a homebird anymore, which encouraged you to downsize.

Financial security

69% of homeowners who have downsized in the past said their primary reason was to save money.* Downsizing gives you more financial freedom, as your monthly payments will be reduced. This will also lead to a reduction in the maintenance of a property and its general upkeep, freeing up your time.

Location change

Downsizing could also give you the advantage of moving to a different location for a property, as prices differentiate in different areas, meaning you might have to reduce the size of your property to move to a new location. People assume downsizing is a backwards step when moving along the property ladder, but occasionally it can suit your lifestyle better and should be accepted.

Which one is right for you?

Whether you’re leaning towards upsizing because of the comfort and luxury of moving up the property ladder or you want the simplified life of downsizing, it's key to align the reasons with your lifestyle and determine which one would suit you. Your choice of where to move next should be a personal choice and preference for whatever suits your lifestyle and future.

Whichever home you choose, whether you upsize or downsize, ensure you choose correctly by comparing the advantages of each.

What Our Customers Say...

Selling my house through Richard Kendall was a great move. Amanda at the Pontefract office was there for me every step of the way. I couldn’t have asked for a better person to handle my sale. She did a fantastic job with the communication between me and the buyer and always pushed the solicitors for updates. My sale wasn’t as straight forward as any of us had hoped but Amanda didn’t let that phase her. Her professional and friendly support continued though-out the whole process. I’d highly recommend Richard Kendall. Laura 10/06/2024
Joanne and Donna was amazing from start to finish if any enquiries I had and they both kept me up date with the process anytime something changed, would highly recommend these two if your buying through Richard Kendall. Jack 10/06/2024
A very smooth experience from valuation to completion with advice given to achieve the best price. I was kept informed at every stage of the very smooth process by Shereen and Kathryn Graham 10/06/2024
I sold my house and purchased a new one through Richard Kendall between Jan and May this year. The service was very good on both sides, but I must compliment Mandy, who managed my purchase. Throughout the whole process, which had its tricky moments, Mandy was polite, professional and - perhaps most importantly for me - a source of constant positivity and calm reassurance. She was communicative, proactive and provided a fantastic bridge to the vendor. Thank you Mandy, you are a star! Rachel 10/06/2024
It’s been a first time experienced for myself in the rental of a new place via Richard Kendall’s at a local branch at Horbury in Wakefield, which was quite a process due to all the checks required by a third party. Jessica Judd who I dealt with was very professional, polite, efficient, friendly and helpful during this process. I was really pleased that Jessica also pushed to get everything into place before I went away on holiday, taking away any anxiety about having a property to move into on my return to the UK. Jessica is a real credit to her company and would definitely use the services of Richard Kendall again in the future. Dean 10/06/2024

We recently sold our family property and Suzy was amazing from start to finish! She really helped eliminate the stress of selling by keeping us updated throughout the whole process. Suzy was professional and personable. I would highly recommend Richard Kendall’s to anyone buying / selling and especially Suzy. Thank you so much. Beth 03/06/2024
