Downsizing your home can mean moving from a larger residence to a smaller one OR rightsizing to a home that aligns with your needs. Here are some reasons that motivate homeowners to downsize –

  • Members of your family have moved out and you no longer need such a large home. 
  • For health reasons, you desire a one level floor plan.
  • Retirement – you want to live near family or in a warmer climate

Often times, downsizing means you must pare down your belongings so everything can fit comfortably in your new home. Or, if you are moving to your second residence, it is usually fully furnished, so you just want to move a few items and sell or donate the rest.

There are many benefits to downsizing, including:

  • Less maintenance – When moving, you can choose a condo or a new home with less maintenance
  • More money – The money saved on living expenses can go toward travel, hobbies & quality of life
  • Fewer chores – Less square footage means less cleaning
  • Energy efficiency – If you choose a newer home, you can benefit from reduced energy costs
  • Reduced clutter – Downsizing your house gives you the perfect reason to sell and donate what you don’t need
  • Carefree living – With a home that is designed for easy one level living, daily life will be more enjoyable

Many homeowners choose to downsize at some point in their lives. Regardless of your reason for downsizing your home, Tracy Wick Property Team can help you every step of the way. We can sort and sell your contents and home fast and for the best prices.

How to Downsize? | Downsizing Home Checklist

When you decide to downsize, you might realize you have more stuff than you thought. This downsizing home checklist has a few easy steps to help you get started:

  • Budget: Create a budget that reflects your current expenses, the projected expenses at your new residence, and your moving expenses.

  • Think big-picture: Consider furniture items and appliances. Determine what will fit in your new residence.

  • Sort through your items: Think about what you need and donate, throw out, or sell clothes, books, and more.

  • Sell what you don’t need: Tracy Wick and her team can help you sell your unwanted items at estate sale prices.

How to Downsize Your Belongings | Downsize and Declutter

One of the most crucial steps when downsizing your home is to downsize and declutter. These tips for downsizing can help you maximize the space in your new residence:

  • Establish decluttering rules: Sort everything into four piles — keep, undecided, sell, and throw away. Go through the undecided pile again after sorting everything. You can get rid of anything that you don’t use or is easily replaceable.
  • Measure your furniture: Sell anything that’s too big for your new home and use the money to buy smaller replacements.
  • Take it one room at a time: Start with the rooms you use the least. Sort your items, then pack and clean the room before moving to the next one.
