Signs it is time to downsize…


Thinking about downsizing? Here are some signs it is time…

  1. Your main reason for staying is figuring out what to do with your stuff if you move
  2. You are not doing things you want to do because of costs and obligations associated with staying in your home
  3. The only time you are in your yard is when you are mowing it
  4. You are ready to be done cleaning rooms that only collect dust and 'stuff'
  5. You are concerned about stairs being an obstacle for you or someone else you care about
  6. You would like to live closer to your children, grandchildren, parents, siblings, friends, other family members
  7. You dream of living in… (FILL IN THE BLANK!)
  8. Your friends have already moved on
  9. You know there are some major maintenance issues coming up in the next few years that you don't want to deal with
  10. You are closing off parts of your home to save on utility costs
  11. You want more freedom to travel and do 'fun stuff'
  12. You do the Snoopy dance when you hear what your home could sell for in this seller's market… it's payback time!
