Retiring Soon? Downsizing May Be The Right Choice!
If you are one of the millions of Americans who are hitting the age of retirement, then you should consider your options. Retirement offers you new possibilities for hobbies, travel, and additional time to spend with family and friends. Making the most of this free time may mean letting go of those things that are holding you back from enjoying your retirement in its fullness. For many retirees, large and cumbersome single family dwellings are a strain on financial resources, require tiresome maintenance, and no longer fit the individual needs of many retirees. Luckily selling these outmoded properties benefit retirees in many ways.
- Downsizing Gives You Extra Cash – The money you make from the sale of your home can be used to finance your dreams or put away for your future. Either way, why not start this new phase of your life with some extra money in your pocket?
- Downsizing Saves You Money – Living on social security, your savings, pensions, and retirement funds, often means that you are now living off a fixed income. Thus, saving money is all the more important. Downsizing your home is a great way to save. A smaller home will cost you less in taxes, utilities, mortgage, and home insurance.
- An Opportunity To Move – Downsizing your home is a wonderful opportunity. When you make the choice to move into a smaller home, you are also granted the opportunity to decide what home is right for you. This exciting choice can mean moving into a home that you love. Perhaps, you can even move closer to friends or family.
- Downsizing Means Less Maintenance – If you are considering downsizing your home, then you may be plagued with extra bathrooms, extra rooms, and extra space. The unused square footage in your home can quickly become an undue burden that requires unnecessary maintenance. When you make the choice to downsize, you are freeing yourself of this obligation.
