Is Downsizing Your Home Right For You?

Wednesday Apr 26th, 2017


The number of Zoomers choosing to downsize from their current homes to a more manageably sized one is on the rise. Many say continuing to maintain a large family home can be difficult –  both physically and financially.

Zoomers moving have so many options — from buying another house or condominium to moving into a rental accommodation, independent living community or continuing care retirement community.


Some of the advantages to downsizing may include:

  • Being closer to friends or family
  • Lower home maintenance costs
  • Better access to services that support your needs
  • Having more amenities such as access to a pool, golf course or gym
  • Not having to shovel snow or mow the lawn
  • Increased social interaction with other 50-plus residents


Some of the factors to keep in mind when downsizing

  • Emotional Considerations
  • Your Property Value
  • Financial Considerations
  • The Condo Lifestyle
  • Adult Living Communities
