Enjoy the Christmas Experience I called into the John Lewis store near York last week in pursuit of a trouser press and was instantly impressed by the amount of Christmas decorations, gifts and treats already displayed. I have since noticed that Christmas TV advertising is well underway, plus the X Factor and Strictly Come dancing are now rolling nicely along too. Christmas is on its way but there’s still time to get simple things sorted in your home in order to sell by Christmas (according to sources at HomeOwnerAlliance) and these include:- Ensuring that you have good exterior lighting helps create that better first impression when buyers come to view. Don’t ignore the back garden, clear away leaves, trim the hedges, make sure your gutters are cleaned and that any summer furniture or toys are removed from the patio. Even highlight a corner of the garden, tree or a plant so that it can look inviting seen from the inside as the longer nights are approaching. Well stocked bird feeders also create a lovely addition to your garden which will delight potential owners.

There could be a host of reasons for you to consider downsizing. Your kids may have flown the nest, your garden may be too large, you may want to release some equity, reduce your monthly outgoings, or you are simply drawn to living in a smaller, more manageable property. Downsizing isn't just for retirement. It can be an important choice at any stage of your life, location, health or wealth. Whatever your reasons, whether you are a homeowner, a private tenant, living in a council or housing association accommodation, it's important to review the options before making your decision.

Think hard a carefully about how much you want to spend. It's easy to get carried away with that better and more attractive property, but don't forget you also have bills to pay when you move in! You might also consider renting as a short term option whilst you're saving a deposit. In which case, set you budget sensibly and you'll have more available to save each month.
