Thinking of downsizing? Feeling overwhelmed? Kids moved out? Tired of dealing with shoveling, mowing the lawn or cleaning off the cars? Whether you are downsizing from your family home to a condo, smaller home or moving into a retirement residence, we can help you embrace this new lifestyle. It can be overwhelming at first, but we understand that your home has history. We understand that it requires a lot of effort and care to organize and prepare for the next phase of your life. Here are your steps to downsizing.
1. Organize Your Things
Going through room by room and organizing your things is the first step. Take all of your items out of storage and begin deciding what you want in your new home and what you don’t. It can be helpful to get your things sorted into either keep, donate, trash or unsure piles.
2. Find Your New Location
Do you want to stay in the same neighbourhood? Curious about condo living? Figuring out where you want to live is the next step. Take a walk in a neighbourhood you’re interested in. Ask us about a condo you like.
3. Figure Out Your Budget
Gain an understanding of maintenance fees in a condo, how much they will cost per month and work it into your budget. Visit your financial advisor and get your finances in order to make sure you’re financially able to purchase a new home.
