As I am less than a year away from retirement, I am in the process of preparing my house for sale. Currently living in the Midlands, I am planning on moving to the south west (Devon) to spend my retirement there- just wondering if any fellow colleagues have sold up and re-located for their retirement? My current property I purchased back in 1991 for £39,000. Since then, I’ve completed gutted it, extended the house. I had it valued back in 2012 for £225,000. I’ve kept it up to date with modernisation etc and I’m sure the new buyer will put their own stamp on it, like I will with my new property. In the last 7-8 years, house prices have increased dramatically and the house next door sold last year for £300,000 (smaller than mine)- so I’m confident it will sell quick- it’s just when the best time would be to market it for sale? I retire in August 2020, and want to be in my new home by my 60th in November 2020. Thoughts?
