Are you ready to downsize?
Deciding whether or not to downsize can be a difficult decision to make.
Here are 4 signs that may mean you’re ready to move into a smaller home.
1. You have too much space
One of the first signs that you will notice when it’s time to downsize is that you find yourself with empty rooms and unused spaces. Your current home may be too large for your current stage in life. Downsizing to a smaller, more practical home will help you.
2. You have trouble maintaining your home
You are starting to notice that you struggle to keep up with all the maintenance that is required to upkeep your home. Many find exterior maintenance the hardest to keep up with. Downsizing to a smaller home means there will be fewer rooms and square footage to maintain making the maintenance more manageable.
3. You want to enjoy the things you like most
You have reached a point in your life where you want to focus on things that matter to you most. Spending time with friends, and family and pursuing new hobbies and interests. Downsizing will help simplify your life by reducing the distractions and time required to keep up with a larger home and allow you the freedom to enjoy your time.
4. You want to reduce your expenses
A very common reason people choose to downsize is so they can reduce their expenses. With a smaller home comes lower utilities, taxes, maintenance etc. Downsizing will allow you more financial flexibility in your retirement to enjoy the things that matter to you most.
