Thought about Downsizing?
Downsizing the family home is something many people start to think about once the kids move out and start their own family. The home that you’ve spent a lot of your life in starts to feel a little empty, and there are rooms you rarely go in anymore.
The appeal of simplifying your lifestyle, while not compromising quality or comfort is easy to understand. With a smaller more manageable garden, less housework and less household maintenance, downsizing allows you to keep control of your lifestyle while saving you money and giving you back precious time.
There are a number of financial benefits to downsizing, from reduced utility bills to lower home insurance … but the major benefit is the extra time you have for doing the things you enjoy. It’s easy to imagine a simpler lifestyle with more free time.
Chris Smith from Lansell Homes an industry leader in downsizing commented that this is a popular solution, and there is more to it than building a smaller home.
“My parents are about to downsize now, so Lansell understands the challenges and how to assist. We understand that folks have worked hard and are now looking to enjoy their life, with a smaller garden and less property maintenance. People want a quality home, and quality of life,”
“Getting all of the features of a large house into a smaller family home, and providing people with a downsizing lifestyle is about finishing the job with a turn-key finish.” Chris added.
There will always be memories of that original family home, reminiscing about children running around, family Christmas’ and maybe even grandkids. It’s important to remember these things, but it’s also important to remember why you are taking that next step in your life. This is your time.
