Older Australians are increasingly choosing to downsize from their larger family home to smaller premises. In some cases, downsizing may be to unlock equity from the family home to allow travel or other investments, or to create a more manageable living arrangement without the upkeep and maintenance demands of a traditional family home.

A move to an apartment or unit in a retirement living community offers attractive lifestyle and social benefits. Alternately, some downsizers are driven by a desire to gain access to greater levels of health care and support as they age.

Regardless of the reasons, Classic Moves provides a range of home relocation services to assist Melbourne residents with downsizing.
