The weather outside’s becoming frightful, with snow forecast any day now. Waking up extra early to shovel the white stuff before the bylaw officer swings by, makes even the best of us feel Grinchy. Your house is the gift that’s kept on giving, but as the snow piles up, so do all the chores and maintenance.
As the New Year approaches, consider making a resolution to ‘right-size’ your house.
Rightsizing or downsizing is adjusting your housing situation to becoming more manageable. For many people, once their children move out, their three bed, three bath home is just too much space and maintenance. For others, it’s about de-cluttering, organizing their lives around their happiness and not their clutter.
Rightsizing is an opportunity to live closer to children and loved ones, so you can see them more often than just the holidays. It’s a chance to use your home’s equity, allowing you to retire comfortably, and help the kids build homes of their own. Or, it’s the chance to save money on taxes and maintenance bills, so you have the money to bask on a sunny Caribbean beach as the snow falls back home.
