The Joy of Downsizing in Huntsville, AL

    Joys of Downsizing in Huntsville, AL

    People downsize to smaller homes for many reasons:

    • Your children have grown up and moved out leaving you with an empty nest.
    • You have retired or you are planning to retire soon.
    • You are tired of the upkeep it takes to maintain a large house.
    • You would rather spend your free time traveling or on your hobbies rather than cleaning your house.
    • Increased taxes and upkeep have made your current home too expensive.
    • You’ve lost a spouse or partner and you’re living alone.
    • You’ve always wanted to live at the beach, in the mountains, on a lake, etc. and want a smaller dream house in one of those locales.
    • You’ve built up a lot of Equity in your current home and want to start using it for other things.

    Whatever the reason, downsizing is a good move that will likely bring you more joy.  Here are the reasons why:

    • Your house will be easier to maintain and you will spend less time cleaning.
    • You will spend less money on everything from your mortgage, taxes and insurance to your heating, cooling, and electricity.
    • Having less debt will eliminate the financial stress that comes with a huge mortgage payment.
    • A home that doesn’t drain your resources and energy will give you peace of mind. And that is priceless.
    • A smaller home has a positive impact on the environment because it requires less resources to build and maintain.
    • You will have more free time for living the life you want.
    • It will force you to declutter and cut back on your belongings and keep you from buying more.
    • If decorating is not your thing, a smaller house will make it less overwhelming for you.
    • When the time comes to sell, a smaller, more affordable home will appeal to a larger percentage of the population.

    Downsizing doesn’t mean you should move into one of the tiny houses that are trendy right now.  It might be just going from four bedrooms/three baths to three bedrooms/two baths.  A professional Realtor can assist you in finding a smaller home that will suit all your needs and provide you with a happier, more peaceful lifestyle.
