Selling your Home

Advantages

You get full sale value immediately which you may need to buy a care fee insurance policy.

Proceeds from the sale of your own home are not normally subject to tax, although this benefit will probably not be available to your estate.

Disadvantages

You may have to wait some months to sell if the market is slow, you may not get the value you would in a more buoyant market.

The benefit of future property inflation is not available to you or your estate.
