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...

Joanne and Donna have been truly outstanding throughout my sale. I can’t thank either of them enough for the work they have put in. They’ve shouldered every bit of emotion and supported me beyond belief - I’m not sure this sale would have completed without them. I couldn’t recommend RK’s enough, and would like to recognise their professionalism, hard work, determination and attitude shown. Thank you to the team at Richard Kendall’s and thank you especially to both Joanne and Donna! Sam 15/07/2024
We were kept up to date on the progress of the sale of our property. Elizabeth Cooke was efficient and very helpful. Elizabeth was very friendly and always made you feel at ease. Lorraine 15/07/2024
Great experience from start to finish. Richard Kendal helped us to rent a house. It's been a first time experienced for us in the rental of a new place via Richard Kendall at a local branch at Horbury and Jessica Judd was very supportive, friendly, professional and polite throughout the whole process. Jessica is a real credit to her company and I would definitely use the services of Richard Kendal again in the future. Monica 15/07/2024
No problems at all nice smooth process from start to finish. Kept informed throughout. Amanda Dyson always on hand to help and advise. Dale 15/07/2024
Thank you to Alice and Francesca for sorting out our rental property. Without all your help, we would have really struggled. Alice answered all our questions and was so helpful. Thank you Claire 15/07/2024
Richard Kendal have been amazing during the whole process of me selling my house. Catherine ensured my valuation was booked in quickly to get the process moving along. My house went up on the market and was sold in the first couple of days. I can’t thank Catherine and Shireen enough for their support and updates throughout the whole sale! Would recommend! Tyler 15/07/2024
I cannot recommend agent Karen Marijewko at Richard Kendall Wakefield, highly enough for her outstanding professionalism and attention to detail throughout our property buying experience. From the initial viewing to the final signing, Karen demonstrated a deep understanding of the market and superb negotiation skills. Her dedication and commitment to finding us the perfect property did not go unnoticed. Thanks to Karen, we were able to secure the beautiful property at Western Road, Tingley, which we now call home. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and attentive estate agent, look no further than Karen Marijewko at Richard Kendall. Steven 15/07/2024
We sold two properties in Ossett, and the support and help we received from the Ossett office, and Lucy in particular, was fantastic. Both sales were problematic to some extent, one requiring a deed of variation, and the other one requiring additional documentation from the buyer and their solicitor. On multiple occasions, Lucy helped coordinate activities and actions across both sets of solicitors, and the buyer and seller, ensuring that the sales both went to completion. Without her involvement, at least one of the sales would have fallen through. The original marketing of the properties and guidance on asking price was done very professionally, and Richard Kendall’s support in allowing one of the buyers to rent out the property as the sale went through allowed us to accept a slightly lower asking price. I would happily recommend them, and would use them again for future purchases and sales. Andy 15/07/2024
First class service as always, we always use Richard Kendall & we wouldn’t use anyone else. Thank you to Helen who was brilliant & very efficient. Teresa 15/07/2024
