Are you an older adult considering moving to a smaller home? You’re not alone. According to a recent Financial Post article, a significant portion of seniors (including the young at heart!) are opting to downsize. 

Everyone’s reasons for downsizing are different, but here are three commonly cited motivations for taking the plunge. 

Living in a Downsized Home Is Simpler, Safer and Cheaper

A big home is fantastic when you have a family running around, when you can get up and down stairs with ease, and when you have the income to comfortably afford taxes and/or mortgage payments. But, later in life, it can become impractical. It’s difficult finishing all the house chores. The garden gets more unwieldy by the day. Your knees don’t agree with the stairs like they used to. And the monthly payments seem too high. 

Downsizing can put you in a home that’s simpler, safer and less expensive. In a bungalow or condominium, you have fewer maintenance responsibilities, and the cost is significantly less. You can also choose a home that fits your accessibility needs: no stairs, no high cabinets that require stepping stools and an open layout that lets you move freely between rooms. 

It’s Easy and Stress-Free with a Professional Downsizing Company

So, you’re sold on the idea of downsizing, but you’re still reticent about the process. How will you sort through all the clutter? Who will help you sell or dispose of your unwanted possessions? And how will you manage the actual move? 

Luckily, the whole process is simple with a professional downsizing company. Take NEATSPACES downsizing services for example – they help every step of the way, from sorting through your possessions to setting up your new home. They offer end-to-end move management, coordinating movers, packing supplies and transport. They help you sell high-value unwanted items and dispose of items that won’t sell. Best of all, throughout the process, they are caring, empathetic and patient. 

If the only thing holding you back from downsizing is apprehension at all the work involved, don’t let that hold you back. Let a professional downsizing company shoulder the burden. 

Downsizing Lets You Break Free from the Accumulated Clutter

The larger the home, the more potential for clutter. You don’t know what to do with your kids’ old trophies, generational memorabilia, travel mementos, décor items from a previous style in your home – the regular things that pile up over a lifetime. After a while, you might find that the amount of clutter is unmanageable, and you’re stepping over boxes just to find the vacuum. 

Think of downsizing as liberating yourself from all the clutter. With the help of a professional downsizing company, you can still keep all the things that matter – keepsakes, family heirlooms and functional household items – but you get rid of all the burdening clutter around them. 

If you’re on the fence about downsizing, talk it over with family and friends. If you do decide to take the plunge, just know that you’ll have a safer, less expensive, simpler and cleaner home awaiting you, and that the process is simple when you hire a professional downsizing company.
