Your next home may never be so affordable TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THE GOLDEN OPPORTUNITY NOW! Whatever your reason for moving home, acting now could make the property market work for you. Be it a need for more space, planning for the future or simply a desire for that dream home, there is a golden opportunity in selling and upsizing now as the market shows signs of recovery.
The wise upsize
Fast-track your equity
With percentage price drops reducing the value of larger properties more than smaller, the gap between your current home and your next step up the property ladder may never be so small again. Upsizing now could be a very wise move!
One way to increase your equity in property is to upsize now. As the market picks up, the percentage effect increases the value of larger properties by a greater amount – growing your investment faster.
Offers over... The days of unrealistic offers may well be over as the market shows signs of recovery. With viewing ﬁgures up, competition between buyers, and offers near (if not over) the asking price, now is as good a time to sell as it is to buy.
Family planning We may not be in a property boom, but we’re certainly in a baby boom! With the highest recorded birthrate since 1972, families are growing – and need larger homes. Planning ahead now could provide your growing family not only with the space it needs, but also the beneﬁt of a better long-term investment – and a larger nest egg for the future.

 This illustration shows how upsizing from a £200,000 to a £400,000 home would have cost £200,000 prior to the price correction.  Savings of up to 25% were possible after the correction - in this case £50,000!  As the market recovers, the gap widens... the savings reduce... and the cost to upsize will increase.
