A Realistic Downsizing and Decluttering Guide for Seniors
The downsizing process is a lot of work, there’s no doubt about that. You have to sort through a bunch of old belongings you haven’t thought about in years, put your house on the market, hunt for a new home, plan the big move, and get settled into a new place. The entire process can take quite a while! It can also be incredibly stressful, especially if you aren’t prepared. Whether you’re downsizing yourself or helping a senior loved one navigate the process, take advantage of the resources we’ve assembled to help you out.
Paying for a New Home
Before you start thinking about where you’d like to live, you need to review your finances to figure out what you can afford and how you’ll pay for a new home.
Choosing a Location
Once you’ve figured out your finances, you’ll need to find a community and home that fits your downsizing needs.
Decluttering and Moving Your Belongings
Downsizing will require some work, and it can be an emotional process, but you can hire professionals to help along the way.
Helping a Loved One Downsize
This can be an emotional time, so look to family and friends for help.
Selling the family home, sorting through your cherished possessions, and moving somewhere new can bring about all kinds of difficult emotions. Prepare for the downsizing process ahead of time so you can take it as slow as you need. While it may take some time to get used to life in your new home, you’ll be glad you made the choice to downsize your life in retirement.
