There are a number of reasons why it is becoming more popular for homeowners to look into house down-sizing. If any of the following reasons fit your circumstances, give us a call. We have helped a number of people sell their current home and purchase something more suitable to their situation.
- Retirement – It is not uncommon for those retiring to want to spend more time on recreation and travel, rather than keeping up a larger home and property. By house down-sizing, they are able to not only free up time for their other pursuits, but often also have some extra money for them.
- Resident Reduction – Another reason for house down-sizing is when the number of people in the family decreases. This could be from divorce, children leaving for college or marriage, or another reason. If your home just feels too large now that you have a smaller family, house down-sizing may be the solution for you.
- Financial Reasons – Finances are often a cause for considering house down-sizing. This could be from an unexpected income reduction, or perhaps even a decision to live on less and take a less stressful job that doesn’t pay as well. Some families are opting to live on less so that one parent can stay home with the children, for example.
- Lifestyle Change – Many people who consider house down-sizing are doing it because they want to change their lifestyle. They want to spend more time on entertainment or recreation and find they don’t need a large home that takes up their time and finances. Just as a retirement may lead you to make this choice, you may also decide to down-size if you just want to live more like you’re retired!
