As your lifestyle changes and you slowly take a few steps back from the working world, the life you envisioned might be a bit different than you planned. You're spending more time traveling, visiting with friends and family, or just trying to get out and see all the exciting things to do in Waterloo Region. It almost seems like you are busier now than you were when you worked all week long.
In order to keep up with these exciting plans you might need to simplify a few other things in your life, or maybe you want to free up some of the equity in your home so you can afford to treat yourself with that fantastic trip. Maybe it is time to think about downsizing your home to something that fits your new lifestyle.
Downsizing is not something you just do. It is something that takes planning and time. Many people who start looking into downsizing options get discouraged because they are giving up their large home for a smaller property, but the prices are not that different. There is more to consider when making these types of choices.
These are a few questions you should ask yourself:
Your options when it comes to downsizing depend on what stage of downsizing you are in. You could just be moving out of your big family home, or you could be requiring some assisted living due to an injury or illness. In either case, you should talk about these things openly with your family and loved ones. As we age there is a greater chance of something happening that we did not plan for. Imagine how people feel who do not plan. They can sometimes have others speak for them and make choices that leave them feeling down and depressed. Please take control of your future and plan for the what if's. Talk to your family about your retirement plans.
The first step to a great retirement is a plan.
If you are ready to move out of your large family home, here are some housing options you may consider:
No matter what options you are looking for, calling a professional Realtor to help answer your questions is a great step towards the right choice. For me being a Realtor is more than just selling a home, it is being a resource to help clients make the right choice for a better life.
