Have you noticed the shift towards smaller living spaces? More and more home buyers are looking to downsize in an effort to simplify their lives – for them, it’s not always that bigger is better. Whether you and your partner are empty nesters or if there’s been a change in your career, here are the benefits of making the leap and buying a smaller home.

You’ll save money on additional furniture. Bigger spaces require more furniture to make them look full. Once you move to a small home you’ll only need to bring the furniture that is necessary.

In a smaller home, residents often find that they have more time to spend with their families. There is less upkeep required including cleaning, maintenance and gardening.

Your energy costs will dip. Heating, cooling as well as water can make running a large home costly. Your decision to downsize will not only be eco-friendly, but you’ll be enjoying lower electricity bills, most significantly during summer and winter months.

What’s more, is that we’re here to help you make this transition to a smaller home run smoothly. Over the years we enjoyed helping thousands of clients including seniors look for homes that are more suitable to their needs.
