Free Community Event: Local experts reveal insider secrets on how YOU can downsize - and thrive!
By ANNA USHER.
Remember when your large, family home was full of growing children – and you had the energy to maintain multiple living spaces, a huge back yard – and three bathrooms?
Back then, life was a chaotic blur of kid’s birthday parties, homework, sleepovers and sports activities.
But then - in the blink of an eye - everything changed.
You got older.
The kids finished school – went to university - and then they flew the coop. All of them!
Suddenly, your vast, noisy house became strangely quiet. And while blissful for a little while, it didn’t take long to work out there was no need for those empty bedrooms, the 10-seat dining table - and a pool being used just once or twice each year.
There’s no question that when a residence outgrows you – and your housing needs change, the idea of downsizing can be daunting.
But by arming yourself with knowledge, the transition can be smooth and problem free, according to local expert Priscilla Schonell.
“THE TIME FELT RIGHT TO RUN A COMMUNITY EVENT THAT WILL REVEAL VALUABLE INSIDER SECRETS, ON HOW TO SUCCESSFULLY DOWNSIZE”
- Priscilla Schonell, Di Jones Mosman.
A life-long Mosman resident and real estate agent with nearly 20-years-experience, Ms. Schonell has gathered a group of industry specialists, for a community education event aimed directly at empty nesters.
“The seminar will arm older home owners with all the latest expert tips, to simplify the experience of downsizing,” she says.
“With so many local residents overwhelmed by the thought of selling up - and starting over in a smaller house – we felt that a special information day was a good idea.”
An all-female line up of presenters, including Domain’s Belinda Sinclair, Mortgage Advisor Vanessa Bell, Buyers Agent Annabelle Webb and Bell Partners Accountant Emily Wright, will join Ms. Schonell on August 20th, to share valuable advice on the “art of downsizing”.
“We intend to update our guests on the current property market – but more importantly, we will provide a rare opportunity for them gain insider information on how to successfully downsize,” Ms. Schonell said.
The panel will cover topics including finding the right property, selling your home for the best price, choosing the right agent, showcasing your property, the best time to sell, financing property transactions and essential tax information for anyone navigating the local property market.
