"Downsizing from the large family home to an apartment just got a whole lot easier....here's why!


One of the main considerations when downsizing to an apartment from the large family home is obviously space after selling the family home.


For instance family and friends come to visit how can we entertain in comfort like we did in the house? This issue has been addressed in fine style with the stunning rooftop terrace in Elysian Cannon Hill which will include: 



An enormous rooftop area including top of the range stainless steel BBQ, Beautifully designed firepit and elegant but comfortable sofas, dining area and sun lounges......checkout the images and video below.

Lets start with the fire pit. Ok the apartments in Elysian are not on the water ( as in the video below) but Imagine having a drop of your favourite beverage, gathered around the firepit as the sun goes down over Brisbane City!

For all you BBQ gourmet chefs get your favourite marinade ready (I can smell the aroma now!) If you want to see the BBQ in action just click on the image to view video. The BBQ and firepit will be sourced from "Artisans in metal" https://southernstainless.com.au/about-us/ 

Last but not least the outdoor furniture will be sourced from renowned outdoor furniture craftsman "King Living" who have been pioneers of crafting stylish outdoor furniture for over 40 years. 

Combine all of the above with the panoramic views from the rooftop terrace over the park to the City and you have a magical combination of sophisticated, low maintenance living for owners (and any very lucky tenants!)

The Downsizing or “Rightsizing” experience should be seen as an exciting next step after probably raising a family over the years in the large family home.


However as it could be your final property purchase for some years to come there is a lot to consider.....You don't want to get it wrong, this checklist will help.


Chances are you’ve worked very hard and sacrificed a lot over the years and now its time to move onto a well deserved low maintenance home and you can enjoy more freedom to reach personal goals and leisure activities where you never had time before.

However trying to find an appealing property for people wanting to downsize in most major Cities can be tough.


Choosing between a much smaller detached home, unit, townhouse, or apartment versus the large family home they are used to living in can be very exhausting.

After dealing with numerous projects and buyers over the years I have found several deciding factors that downsizers are looking for.


I provided the information below to a developer sometime back in his research phase and am pleased to announce he listened to the downsizer market and his newest project ticks all the boxes below. (I will give you a sneak peek of his Brand New Project shortly) 

Many downsizers are looking for a stress free purchase and an “off plan” purchase fits their brief in most cases and here’s Why ……..

  • There’s no involvement in renovations and everything is brand new with warranties in place.
  • If purchasing early “off plan” various fixtures and fittings plus floorings can be tailored to suit the buyers needs.
  • Another major benefit with an “off plan” purchase is time. Many projects released for sale will not be ready for 12 months to 2 years. This provides plenty of time to slowly pack up the house and also time to sell their current property to settle in time with their brand new home.
  • No cash deposit required? - if structured correctly the equity in their existing home can be used as the deposit for the new “off plan” purchase with no funds required until construction is complete ready for occupancy……

Read on to discover a list I put together after speaking with numerous buyers to determine what downsizers really want (and deserve)



Here’s what downsizers really want:


✔️ Boutique developments – maximum of 20 in complex

✔️ Light and bright natural light

✔️ NEW!- new kitchens and bathrooms

✔️ NO STAIRS – horizontal living

✔️ Two car parks – secure and undercover (prefer not tandem)

✔️ Large balconies or outdoor entertainment space

✔️ Able to lockup and leave

✔️ Able to keep small pets

✔️ Proximity to shopping, cafes and restaurants

✔️ Proximity to public transport

✔️ Proximity to health professionals

✔️ Proximity to parks and walking tracks

✔️ Quality fixtures and fittings

✔️ Low maintenance

✔️ Remain part of a community (or become apart the community)

✔️ Close to family and friends

✔️ Remain in a known area

✔️ Large open plan living

✔️ Three bedrooms – master must be large with large robes and en-suite

✔️ Heating/cooling

✔️ Security

✔️ Neighbourhood support


A long list I know, but what if you could have all of the above PLUS Park Frontage and Views to Brisbane City from the Roof-top recreation area!....Sound like you? Read on to discover something special, designed specifically for downsizers who dont like risk....
