Downsize your home – not your lifestyle. Make Chatham your Home

Date posted 07/05/2024

Embarking on the journey of downsizing your family home might sound like a big change, but it comes with a treasure trove of benefits.

Housing experts are increasingly recommending this strategy as a brilliant solution to combat housing shortages.  And the perks aren’t just for young families – there are significant advantages for those considering downsizing.

If your financial freedom is locked within your larger, no-longer-needed family home then downsizing can be your ticket to unlocking a new lease of life for you. 

By selling your spacious property and moving into a smaller, more manageable home you can:

  • Boost your savings
  • Enjoy a more comfortable and financially secure lifestyle
  • Help your children get onto the property ladder
  • Reduce your monthly payments
  • Reduce maintenance expenses
  • Have a more financially secure future
  • Save on energy bills and reduce your carbon footprint by heating a smaller space
  • By purchasing a new build home at Waterfront, Chatham designed with higher energy standards, offering better insultation and energy-efficient features you will enjoy a quality sustainable home
  • Embrace the freedom of being able to choose what you want to do and enjoy the area you live in


Downsizing opens doors to new adventures. Waterfront, Chatham is the perfect downsizing home with its location on the river, surrounded by history and green space, but with great travel connections – recently being named amongst the best value commuter towns within an hour of London. 

There is a real buzz and energy around Chatham as investment and growth is happening to make this a place that people want to make home.

Medway Development Company understands that the path to home ownership is not straight forward so has collaborated with ‘Own New’ where purchasers get a normal mortgage, own 100% of the home but can take advantage of reduced rates for 3-5 years, to allow more people to enjoy the prospect of owning a home in this vibrant community.

“Through our collaboration with Own New, our objective is to open avenues to homeownership for those who may not have thought living in such a high calibre development is possible.” Debbie Small, Head of Sales and Marketing
