Downsizing decisions: Which type of home is best for low-maintenance living?

THE PUSH continues for older people to downsize and it is total B.S.

WHAT “the push” is about is opening up another market for developers to redevelop housing estates lived in by older residents …  to flog off 100 per cent overseas.

BEFORE “Selling Out” to downsize ensure that there is a market of suitable dwellings available for sale on the local Australian market!

YOU don’t want to be forced into buying an unsuitable property!  Or just anything!

THE MEDIUM DENSITY HOUSING CODE is being promoted for its suitability for Seniors however the developer can maximise profits with rows of terraces, townhouses and duplex … of 2 or 3 storeys …

THE “agent speak” here is of the competition for downsizing between cashed-up Seniors and First Home Buyers … however, in reality the buyer competition is from overseas.
