CASE STUDY: Downsizing Down South

When first moving in Pocklington, Anne befriended a retired couple, John and Margaret, whose son lived in Hong Kong. When John died, Margaret knew she wanted to move to Hertfordshire to move near her family, however, she was unable to sort through the 40 years of contents in her home. so many memories had been formed in that house, and so many heirlooms still remained in the loft untouched. Jonathan was not going to be returning to the UK for the foreseeable future and did what he was able to support his mother. With no practical support available to clients moving home it was daunting with so much to do.

Ensuring that Margaret was always free to change her mind, they agreed that she would need to take to a two bedroom flat. Jonathan was able to discuss things with his mother for it was important that he was included in the process.

With previous experience in domestic conveyancing and commercial services, Anne was familiar with the buying and selling process and stepped in to give a helping hand. Anne discussed what was needed to help Margaret move with them both and successfully helped Margaret to downsize for her move to the south part of England.

Anne helped Margaret from being overwhelmed with what had to be done before placing the house on the early Spring sales market. Within three months it was ready for listing. Within three weeks Margaret had received a full asking price offer and had accepted it. Not bad considering Margaret also had to visit the south part of England to view appropriate flats and decide to where she was moving to.
