Ready To Downsize? Answer Some Important Questions

How Do You Know If You’re Ready To Downsize? Ask Yourself Some Questions That Tap Both Your Logic And Emotions..

Some people look at a home as a place within which their lives unfold. They see multiple generations moving through and thriving in that one place that evolves with the needs of its residents. Others see home like chapters in their lives. Begin a new chapter, move into a new home.

Regardless whether you have lived in your home for decades, or have bought and sold homes based on the “chapters” of your life, many whose kids are grown are wondering if they are ready to downsize. The home where you raised your children and entertained their friends is now just a lot of house to clean; the stairs are getting hard on the knees; the yard and pool maintenance are becoming overly taxing physically or financially.

The dream of a single-story sanctuary that fits a more relaxed lifestyle with just enough room for visits from the kids and grandkids is real!

To find out if you’re ready to downsize, consider the following questions:

  • How much room do you really need to live your life to the fullest?
  • Does your current home pose some physical challenges?
  • How ready are you to pare down your “stuff” to fit into a smaller home?
  • Will you be able to downsize and still have room to have extended family visit?
  • Are you considering an adult community or a smaller home in your larger community?
  • Can you get excited about starting fresh or do you feel too emotionally tied to your current home?

Often the decision to downsize begins with curiosity about what is out there that might be a better fit. Checking out smaller homes in your own neighborhood or one closer to something important to you is a great start. Visiting some adult communities to see what they offer (adult communities these days are not your Grandparents adult community!).
