Do I need to Downsize?

Posted by admin on July 12, 2022

Should we move?

How do you know you’re ready to downsize?

Here are some of the reasons why you may find it time to downsize.

  1. There are more days that you are thinking of moving then staying.
  2. You are dreaming of travelling or starting a new hobby.
  3. It’s getting harder to maintain the yard and chores around the house.
  4. Gardening is not as enjoyable as it once was.
  5. Your spending more time at your hobbies or volunteering then enjoying your home
  6. You’re not using half of the house.
  7. Your kids or family are using your home for storage.
  8. Family is not visiting and using the space you have saved for them.
  9. You don’t feel connected in the neighbourhood anymore
  10. You are ready to let go of your “stuff”

Advantages of downsizing:

  1. Equity – Usually, you are going to a smaller property and the equity you have can be invested or used for play..do I hear travelling anyone?
  2. No more shovelling, snow ploughing or large projects taking up your precious time.
  3. Less to clean…Yeehaw!
  4. When downsizing many choose to forgo the stairs and your body will thank you.
  5. Have family who only visit when they need a place to stay. This is a good reason to not have a spare room for them that gets used twice a year.
  6. Your kids can’t move back.
  7. Would you like to walk to cafe’s, walk the in-town parks and be closer to shopping?
  8. You get to explore and meet new people in a different neighbourhood.
  9. You get to purge, purge, purge. This gives me goosebumps because I love purging.
  10. Sometimes you need the change to start fresh.
