When their children have left home, or retirement is nearing, many homeowners begin to think about at their options for the next chapter in their lives. What kind of lifestyle do you want to lead? Do you want to be in the middle of all the action in a condo downtown, or would you prefer a more tranquil setting in a cozy cottage by the lake?
Where Do You Go From Here?
Downsizing to a smaller or different type of home can be an appealing option for many people who are looking for a lower-maintenance lifestyle or smaller space. For some, it may be preferable to transition into an active retirement community or assisted living facility where daily needs such as meals and cleaning are taken care of by a helpful on-site staff.
One-Stop Downsizing Service for Vancouver Seniors
As Vancouver’s Westside downsizing expert, I recently hosted an informational seminar at Crofton Manor in Kerrisdale to discuss the downsizing process and resources available for those wishing to make a change. We discussed the aspects involved in downsizing or right-sizing, including: assessing your specific needs and lifestyle preferences, taking healthcare, financial, and legal requirements into consideration, preparing your home for sale, and finding a new home. I also partner with Professional Organizer Linda Chu on decluttering and logistics to offer a one-stop resource downsizing.
