Retirees thinking about downsizing to enjoy the freedom to travel should look at the location, security, parking and maintenance of their new home, says James Greenwood, of Stacks Property Search.
“Several have bought near Birmingham or Bristol airports, often within an easy taxi ride, or they organise a meet-and-greet deal when they leave their car at the terminal. My advice is to get on with it early so you have time to do the travelling bit.”
It’s also important not to move too far from the madding crowd, from shops and services and transport links. “People should not allow themselves to get too disconnected,” Greenwood adds. “They need to think about the implications of increased journey times – they might have to leave a day early and stay in a hotel near the airport or drive miles to a station.”

When making probably the most important financial decision of your life, it pays to have the right advisors at your side.
A holiday home is often an interesting mix of investment and heartfelt connection. You want to use it, but you may well also be keen for others to use it too. We can advise you on what factors to consider in making your decision. And we can then find the perfect holiday home for you to enjoy.
Others say, ‘location, location, location’. We say, ‘location, purpose, price, capital growth, rental returns’… the list goes on. Knowing the market is critical. Local knowledge is key. We ensure all aspects of your investment decision are addressed. Finding, analysing, negotiating, and completing… it’s what we do.
Relocating is time consuming and stressful. We regularly work with clients who live abroad. We hunt, short-list, prepare your viewings, and make the search process as easy as possible. We oversee the negotiations, manage the conveyancing, and deal with the headaches, so you can concentrate on other aspects of your move.
Retirement or semi-retirement is an exciting stage in life. Finding the right home to live in and enjoy it to the full is important. We know that and will do all that we can to understand what you’re looking for… before starting to search. And search we will, until we find the house of your dreams.
