On the other hand, you may be thinking about retirement in the coming years. Are you planning to leave eventually? Or stick around?
Either way, we’ve got some really handy insights in this article. We hope you enjoy the read…
Let’s cover the who, what, when and why’s.
That is probably why some people look back, and wish they’d started thinking about it a little sooner...
Here are some common options that our clients typically consider (and why):
In Alberta, ‘downsizing’ has a different meaningThe study found significant regional differences in attitudes, with the hotter markets of Ontario and British Columbia at odds with the softer market in Alberta.
In general, Albertan respondents told researchers they want to renovate and stay in their current homes over the next five years rather than downsize – and many noted they are still waiting for their children to leave. Via theglobeandmail.com
That might sound strange, I think because we have an image of downsizing as something that retirees do as they leave middle age behind them.
But the truth is, that we often help clients downsizing in their 20’s, 30’s, 40’s 50’s and of course in their 60’s.
The thing that all of these people have in common, is that either their lifestyle, mindset or budget is changing. The only thing that’s different this time, is that the home they will eventually move into to will be smaller/cheaper as opposed to larger/more expensive.
For example, if you value peace (me too), we know/love the peaceful spots.
If it’s amenities you want, we’ll suggest well-priced listings in safe areas, right next to the stores/restaurants you desire.
Our specialist buyer’s agents are experienced in guiding people through this process. They are kind, understanding, and can help take your stress away through being super organized and informative.
This doesn’t have to be sad at all: It can be an exciting journey you’ll all go on together, with the destination being your perfect home.
After the listing presentation, a separate consultation will take place (at a time that’s convenient for you) to meet with your very own buyer’s agent. This is an exciting planning meeting!
If you choose to hire us, our specialist listing agents will work hard to sell your current home for top dollar, through world-class marketing. They’ll help you with anything from decluttering, to home staging. They’ll earn your trust at the start, then take care of your needs, because they love what they do.
You’ll be sure to downsize successfully, if indeed, that is the right choice for you.
Our team’s job at this early stage, is simply to provide you with the highest quality information, so you can make the best decisions for you and your family.
