Downsizing can be overwhelming.

Top 4 Steps to Downsizing! Many people may have the feeling of fear when they consider downsizing. To combat fear, you need to have knowledge! Learning the right information can ensure you feel comfortable with the entire process. To get you started on the right path, we suggest getting help! Here are the Top 4 Steps to Downsizing:

Step 1. Get help. Contact us to start out because we can connect you with the right professionals to begin the process. For instance, we may want to start by connecting you with decluttering experts.

Step 2. Establish a plan. You need a plan that’s a comfortable timeline for you to reach your goals.

Step 3. Evaluate your home to see what rooms are not being used. This will help you to understand what areas you do need in your next home and which rooms you could do without. It’s also a good idea to begin the packing and decluttering in the rooms that are not being used as much anymore. If you work on your home one room at a time, the process can seem more manageable and less overwhelming.

Step 4. While organizing and decluttering, Do Not Buy New Things. Often, we like to redecorate our new house however, rather than buy new things before getting into your new space, we advise waiting. Living in your new space before buying new items is a smarter choice to really see what is actually needed. In addition, you don’t want to spend all that time organizing to downsize in your current home only to replace that with new clutter.

One important factor to consider when downsizing is the timing. Is now the right time for you? In our business, we have helped many clients to downsize and often they wish they had done it sooner. It’s best to downsize when you still have your health and strength. You’re going to be so happy you did, because you’re going to be living more while living with less.
