A handy guide for moving to a smaller home

When you buy a new home from Barratt London, rest assured that smaller doesn't mean compromising on quality. We make it easy and convenient to downsize – read below to find out why now’s a great time to do it.

Downsizing as an investment

If your main reason for downsizing is to plan for your retirement and to make an investment to help finance it, you may want to use the proceeds of the sale of your current home to buy two properties – one to live in and one to provide an income and to act as an investment.

We can help you get moving

Our Movemaker scheme lets you sell your existing home with no estate agent fees.

To help you on your way, we could pay your estate agent fees when you buy new. The Movemaker application process is simple and straightforward.

We’ll arrange for an independent surveyor and estate agent to value your current home, and once a selling price is agreed we’ll instruct an estate agent to market your home and cover all their fees for you.

 

Maintain a high level of quality

A smaller home doesn’t mean lower quality. We offer an extensive range of beautiful homes in great locations with amenities to match, so you can be sure to find a home that suits you. And as an added benefit, if you reserve early you could tailor it to suit your own personal style and specification.

You have the option to choose everything from bathroom finishes and fittings, kitchen cupboards and appliances, flooring and wardrobes to tiles and lighting.

This means that you don’t have to compromise on quality when you downsize to a Barratt London home.
