We created the Downsizer Bond to make downsizing easier and to give older Australians the opportunity for a better lifestyle, at a time when they deserve it most. Eligible Downsizers can use our bond to buy their next property with zero cash deposit and start the next chapter of their life, stress-free!
Downsizer was created with decades of experience, leadership and knowledge in property, finance and tech industries to meet the needs of downsizers.
By using the Downsizer Bond buyers don't have the stress of trying to obtain bridging finance, draining their savings or giving the bank financial interest in their home with a reverse mortgage.
We believe that today’s downsizers deserve an evolved option that doesn’t compromise their lifestyle or drain their bank accounts.
This is just the beginning!
