My brother text me today not rang me. Said a two bedroom bungalow down your street up for sale said you are getting older. I have a home. What a cheek think they are after financial gain. Any comments or advice please thank you.

Text him back and say ha ha, I’m fine where I am, thanks.
Depending on your relationship with your brother - he is looking out for your future, and best interests, in which case send a text saying thanks and you will think about it,

or

he is looking for a more expensive proprerty for you to leave to him in your will, in wich case he is a money grubbing chancer and you can compose your own reply which will confirm your attitude to that position.

Your choice.
Would your brother gain financially if you moved to a bungalow? Maybe he saw it and thought it might be easier for you. Texts are notoriously misunderstood.
What financial gain?

His wife I should not say is a leech only thinks about money and financial gain had nothing until she met my brother.
what is wrong with
thx - will look
Then make a will.
I know how you feel. I have a brother who gives me advice to do things but i just listen and let him have his say him but then just carry on doing my own thing. Live your own life as you see it.
^ Ha! That sounds a bit like my brother ! I love him though ..
How would he gain financially by you selling your house? If you downsized the surplus would be in your bank - not his.

If he’s the main beneficiary when you die, he’ll get it all. Otherwise he won’t.

Perhaps he’s just thinking your life might be easier in a bungalow. I’d just text back and say thanks for thinking of me but I’ve no plans to move at the moment.
Could he not have had your best interests at heart?

Have a conversation. Things get misunderstood.

I'm sure he's not sat at home this evening fretting over this so don't burn your own energy being negative about it.

Life's too short.
Make a Will and leave everything to who you want otherwise your brother may inherit...
Bungalows are often more expensive than houses as the footprint is bigger. Maybe you are a bit cynical. If your house is worth more your estate will be worth more when you pop your clogs. Move to a cheaper property and you could invest the profits in sensible things like holidays, wine and Cuban cigars
If a house comes up for sale here, do what I do - go to the listing and have a good nosy at the photos and then compare opionions with a neighbour/friend - "don't like that colour" etc.
Where there’s a will, there’s a relative.
