5 Reasons it may be Time to Down Size

One of the best parts of dreams is that they are always changing.  Just as your house was once your dream home, it may not be anymore.  We all know the old adage that bigger is better, but this may not be true – especially when it comes to your home!  You also are not alone.  Below is 5 reasons we’ve found that frequently cause people to want to down size.


Empty Nest – Have all the kids gone off to college?  The house was great when you needed room for all those toys.  Less people usually means you need less space.

Retirement – Once you actually retire you will probably find your needs have changed.  You may wish to move somewhere warmer, start traveling more, or just stretch out your savings.

Saving Money – A smaller house means less taxes, insurance and mortgage payments.  It also means less energy, so lower utility costs.  You may just want to put some away for a rainy day.

Chores – More space means more to clean and upkeep.  It also usually means more yard work.

Travel – If you travel for work or love vacationing you may find that most of your space is wasting away.  If you’re not there to enjoy it, why pay for it?
