Downsizing

When you reduce clutter and move into a much smaller home to have a simpler daily living, the process is referred to as downsizing.

Downsizing offers several benefits including:

  • Reduced real estate costs
  • Reduced utility costs
  • Less home maintenance
  • More free time for hobbies and travel

During the downsizing process, a senior may decide to transfer to a retirement community. In other cases, family members and caregivers help in downsizing to prepare to move into a long term care or assisted living community.

How can a downsizing specialist help you?

The downsizing process can be very overwhelming. You’ll have to declutter, sell the current home, find a new home, and move in. Don’t forget, you also need to pack and unpack your things. The good thing is that downsizing home specialists can help you make the process run as seamless as possible.

Senior Packers and Movers

Companies that offer downsizing services can be as involved in the moving and packing process as preferred by their clients. Some seniors just want help in moving while others need assistance in every phase including decluttering, packing, moving, unpacking, and arranging their things in their new house. Downsizing specialists may also help in space planning. Fortunately, the National Association of Senior Move Managers made sure that companies offering these services follow only the best practices.

Decluttering

Hoarding and clutter can be a serious problem especially for seniors since a cluttered home can easily cause fall hazards. Decluttering professionals offer an unbiased point of view to assist clients in deciding which things they do not need anymore. They could help seniors in determining which items they should keep while aging in place, which belongings to pass on to their family, and which ones to just give away. As a matter of fact, most decluttering experts could also offer donation center resources aside from just Goodwill.

Realtors

Although many realtors could help you with basic home buying requirements, some specialize in the real estate needs of older Americans.

Estate Sales and Consignment

Although a senior might look to eliminate many things while downsizing, a lot of their belongings may still be valuable. Downsizing experts could assist their clients in selling things they no longer want.

Space Planning Experts

These experts will go through their client’s new home to figure out how to best set it up. Some may need the use of floor plan models and apps that make it simpler to visualize how the belongings and furniture of the client will look in the new space.

When do you need to downsize?

  • If the home you’re currently living in no longer suit your needs.
  • You don’t need that much space anymore.
  • You want to spend time on your hobbies and other fun activities.
  • You need long term care
  • I don’t want my kids to take care of my belongings
