Thinking about downsizing your home? There are many great reasons to downsize and move into a slightly smaller home, but these are the most common complaints that I hear everyday:

My home is too big.
My home requires too much maintenance.
My home takes too long to clean.
My kids have moved away so I don’t need all the space anymore.
I want the freedom to travel (my independence)
I’m 55+ and ready to retire
Does this sound like you? You’re not alone! People all across the country are finding out about the benefits of owning a smaller home.

Benefits of Smaller Homes

In real estate, most decisions come down to cost and location. Luckily for you, small homes get great ratings in both! Your new home will be relatively cheaper than your older, larger home and you’ll be able to move into newer, more trendy neighborhoods.

For example, if you wanted to find a larger home very close to Downtown Tucson, we would have a pretty short conversation. However, if you expand your search criteria to include smaller homes, lofts, condos and townhouses, we have too many options to list. And more of these types of communities are being planned and build everyday!

Speaking of location, often clients report that downsizing their home allows them to travel more and do more of the things they love. You’re able to clean faster and you have less to worry about outside your home, meaning more vacations! We could all use more of those.

What To Consider When Downsizing

Of course, you have a few things to consider before you decide to downsize. I’ve had dogs my whole life and Darren and I are total dog people, so the first thing you want to think about it what to do with your furry little companion.
