Posted on 16th September 2019 in News & Views

Downsizing to a brand new home at Rippon’s Wellow Gardens development offers a prime opportunity for property seekers in Ollerton, thanks to the exquisite and exclusive range of three-bedroom bungalows.

The leading housebuilder has put together just some of the key signs why now might be the perfect time to consider making that move and why would be-buyers should view downsizing as an opportunity for a fresh start.

  1. The children have flown the nest

If your children have all grown up and made their move to live independently, you might find your current home is too big.

If there are too many spare rooms for you to make use of, or your kitchen is starting to feel empty without cooking big family dinners, it might be time to downsize.

  1. A clean slate

Once your children have all made their fresh start and left the family home, take the opportunity to consider giving yourself a new beginning of your very own.

Downsizing is a great opportunity to free yourself of clutter and have a clear out, meaning you’re ready to move into your new home.

  1. A demanding existing property

If maintaining your home is become a challenge, it may be a sign that it’s time for you to look into buying a property that is more manageable.

Whether keeping the garden looking trim is proving a struggle or there’s an ever-increasing list of DIY chores to attend to, these can be indicators that it’s time to make a move to a brand new home with less upkeep.

  1. The convenience of single-storey living

A single storey property such as a bungalow comes with many benefits and is a great option for downsizers looking to cut out the daily climb up and down the stairs.

Having everything on one floor delivers a relaxed lifestyle and the thoughtful design provides homebuyers with a spacious yet easy-to-maintain interior.

  1. Planning for the future

Downsizing can be a great way to provide for the future, whether that be for yourselves or for your family later in life.

Reducing your living space can release equity in your existing property, especially if you have already paid off the mortgage.

Homebuyers can use the extra capital to fund an adventure-packed retirement, put away for a rainy day or keep aside for family.

Joanne Shaw, Sales and Marketing Manager at Rippon Homes, said: “There are plenty of benefits to be had for downsizers and while it can be difficult to let go of a house which may have been your family home for years, it is a great opportunity to discover a new property that suits your needs.

“I would encourage anyone who is considering downsizing to visit Wellow Gardens and speak to our Sales Executive, Tia, about how we can find a perfect home for you.”

The stunning, detached Haselmere bungalow at plots 1 and 4 both remain up for grabs and are priced from £269,950.

Wellow Gardens is situated off Wellow Road, Ollerton, Newark, NG22 9AX, and the Haselmere viewhome is open Thursday to Monday from 10.30am to 5.30pm.
