Downsizing has been a popular topic of discussion for us lately, so today I want to provide you three quick tips on how to get the process started if you’re thinking about downsizing.
First, start with a plan.
Write down what you want to keep, what you want to donate, and what doesn’t need to go with you. We can help you create that list and then organize, box up, and move all your possessions.
Next, look for that next house now. You need to know where you’re going before you put your home on the market so you have a good, realistic idea of what house you can get next. A good Realtor can help you clarify and list your living preferences and then show you a couple of homes that match up with them so you can get a taste of what your new lifestyle would be in your new neighborhood.
Lastly, start prepping your home for sale.
We have many instructional videos on this topic for your perusal, and we can also meet with you in person to help you implement an action plan. With the biggest move of your life being a downsizing move, you want to make sure you’re prepared and ready to take those next steps as efficiently and effectively as possible so you can enjoy the next phase of your life.
