You've owned your home for many years.
And so many memories have been created throughboth special and challenging times.
However, despite the affection you have for your space, there comes a time when many people consider downsizing for retirement or for other other reasons, financial, physical, or otherwise. If you are at that point in your life where your home.
is just more space than you need or can handle, perhaps you've been considering taking the next step.
Benefits of Downsizing: Simplifying Your Life and Responsibilities
Home maintenance, yard work, upkeep on the house - it all adds up over time. What would you do if you didn't have those responsibilities? Your home has a lot of equity since you've been able
to pay down the mortgage over the years, but now it's getting to the point that the roof will
need to be replaced soon and the cost of yard work and pool cleaning is increasing as the cost of labor continues to rise over time. Simplified
responsibilities like general upkeep, yardwork, and the constant ebb and flow of efficacy of home features is just one of the many benefits of downsizing.
Read on to learn more about the reasons to downsize.
What does retirement mean to you?
Simply put, after laboring for the majority of your adult life, your time is valuable and you want to focus on the things that are most important to you.
Whether it's moving to a rural area in central or north Florida, or changing the scenery by moving
out of the state all together, what's currently holding you back?
When is the right time to downsize and how should you sell your current home?
One of the biggest challenges is overcoming the fear associated with making the change. The unknown can be frightening - especially in challenging times. When you are facing unchartered waters, education and knowledge are the tools necessary to make the most informed decision. If you had to summarize your biggest concerns about taking a next step, what would you say they are?
I never felt pressured and they actually offered a lot more than what my bottom dollar sales price was.
