Is Downsizing / Rightsizing for You?

Downsizing and Retirement

Hello Raleigh, Cary, Apex and the surrounding area friends! If you are retiring, have an empty nest, or just want to simplify your life, downsizing (or rightsizing) is something you might think about. It can be difficult to make a decision about downsizing / rightsizing and if it's the right move for you. Deciding where and when to move can be complex, but there are some basic questions you can ask yourself to see why you might benefit from downsizing.

1. Do you have unused rooms?
2. Can you afford to stay in your current home for many years?
3. Is your yard easy to maintain?
4. Do you want to invest in upgrades and remodeling your current home?
5. Do you have too much stuff to manage?
6. Do you have a lot of equity in your home?

These questions make it easier to understand why downsizing / rightsizing may be a great option! Let's take a look...

Cutting Costs: You can reduce monthly mortgage expenses, home insurance, property taxes, and utility bills. A smaller, newer home can also save big when it comes to home maintenance costs!

Location: Moving closer to family and medical facilities can make life less complicated and more enjoyable! It can also save money of travel expenses. Or, relocate to a resort area to relax and enjoy nicer weather!

Safety: Stairs, multi-levels, outdated bathrooms, long driveways and uneven ground can become a problem as you age. Finding a one floor home with easy access when downsizing is a great way to plan for the future.

Simplified Lifestyle: Downsizing means you have less, which also means you have less to maintain. A newer, smaller home will need fewer repairs as well and often times, can include all outdoor areas being maintenance-free. It can also make traveling and not being home much easier.
