Downsizing comes with an array of excellent benefits. It’s an opportunity to live more simply, ridding yourself of the clutter that has accumulated throughout the years. It’s also a great way for you and your partner to live in more intimate quarters, allowing for more enjoyment of each others’ company.
Beyond that, downsizing comes with a dramatic reduction in the maintenance of a home required, freeing up precious time to pursue more pleasurable hobbies and interests.
The time and money saved on the cleaning and upkeep of a large home may now go towards something like an extravagant vacation, a vow renewal ceremony, or perhaps set aside for present and future grandchildren.
Many adults 60 and older are choosing to move from the suburbs into condos or lofts. These homes are easier to maintain and places them in the centre of a vibrant, walkable community full of great amenities like shopping, entertainment, and dining.
