Property market in Guildford

If you think your pension pot and the State Pension are your only sources of retirement income, think again! Being a homeowner means you have more opportunities to boost your retirement income. Downsizing to a smaller forever home could help you save on bills. And if you’re an over 55 homeowner, you could be eligible to free up tax-free cash with equity release and live life on your own terms.

According to Zoopla, the average Guildford house price is £613,679, a 6.8% increase from 2020. As more people move out of London and housing demand grows, this might be the right time to get financial advice on downsizing or equity release.

Working with a financial adviser can help you discover all your retirement income options. If you’re worried about not having enough to afford the retirement you deserve, a free consultation could help.
