When Downsizing, Moving and Packing is the Hardest Part
Large homes do not always provide the lifestyle homeowners expect. Big homes create big responsibilities. Yard and home maintenance, cleaning, and higher bills can make the investment less rewarding. In fact, moving and packing into a cozy, smaller and more manageable home allows many homeowners to increase their overall satisfaction with life. Consider the benefits of going smaller.
- The opportunity to reorganize. Large spaces can sometimes lead to clutter. If you have been holding onto belongings (e.g. that ancient, rusted croquet set) simply because you have the space, downsizing can create the push you need to finally go through everything and purge. Here’s an added, hidden benefit to purging: getting rid of items you don’t use anymore will also cut down on moving and storage costs.
- A closer family environment. Too much space can create emotional as well as physical distance. We all need privacy from time to time, but there is such as thing as too much of a good thing. A smaller, cozier environment can encourage your family to interact more on a daily basis and also help socialize small children.
- Save money. Moving to a smaller space can help you decrease your mortgage, reduce home maintenance costs, and cut back on living expenses. Even if you don’t change your lifestyle, you will likely notice organic and natural cost reductions, which can allow you to travel more or invest in other areas of your life, such as a speculative business venture, with less risk.
