The 4 Questions you need to ask yourself when thinking about moving to a smaller home Right-Size not Downsize in Retirement???
Life is ever changing as we enjoy its many stages. We go from being single or recently married in our 20’s to having children and enjoying a large home in our 30’s and 40’s and then to possibly becoming an empty nester and considering downsizing and moving our living space in our 50’s and 60’s .
Here are 4 questions to consider when you are deciding if it is right for you to sell your current home and possibly downsize to a smaller home, condo, rent an apartment or ???
1. How often to you entertain and do you need extra bedrooms for guests to sleepover often?
If you live in 40-50% of your current home and rarely have sleepover guests then owning a large 3 bedroom home is possibly not necessary and downsizing and moving is something to seriously consider.
2. How Important is your Outdoor Space to you?
If you do not enjoy spending time gardening, entertaining in your outdoor space and it has turned into a “job” to maintain then you may be a good candidate for moving to a condo or a smaller yard.
3. Are you away from your home travelling often?
If you love to travel or spend a lot of time at a Vacation property then consider downsizing your home. This will free up cash to spend travelling plus the stress of maintaining a home.
4. How much of your Life accumulation of stuff do you really use, enjoy and need?
Over the decades we keep many things because we have the space to store it BUT, one day we all need to deal with this because excess stuff creates stress in our lives.
It may be overwhelming to sort it yourself and that is Okay. You have the option to hire professional help to ease the burden of this. You will feel an amazing relief when this is done as it opens up choices for you to make a change in your life that will enable you to “Live Life to the Fullest” to fit your lifestyle right now.
