The Choices of Downsizing

Updated: Mar 1

Many downsizers have something in common

There are no doubts downsizers are keen to keep enjoying their lives in familiar surroundings, just without the hassle of a big garden to maintain and a few less bedrooms. Downsizers share a common goal. To retain home ownership and ideally be located near shopping, recreational, medical and public transport that are within walking distance.

Recent Australian research suggests there is a fast growing trend of downsizers and retirees who are willing to trade out of their oversized home and relocate into an apartment where they can remain highly connected to the buzz of their community, mix with younger people and be as active and mobile as possible. This indicates that downsizing for those in this category may happen over a number of stages that probably won’t see them go straight from a big property into a retirement home, but rather, relocate into a smaller home or apartment with an emphasis on convenience.

Some downsizers have preferred to stay within their existing neighbourhoods however many have also been willing to move further afield to find the type of property they are seeking. In essence, it’s all about supply and demand as well as making those important personal choices.

Choosing to downsize on the Northern Beaches

If you are thinking of downsizing around the Northern Beaches, you may find yourself in an enviable position. If it is all about supply and demand, the downsizer market remains well catered for compared to other parts of Sydney.

A good range of high-quality properties both on and off market are located only a stone’s throw away from some of the best local boutique shops, supermarkets and medical the area has to offer, beside transport facilities too. Many downsizers have selected a sophisticated lifestyle in Stockland Balgowlah Village for example, an established resort style community with a great buzz that offers something for everyone.
