After your children move out, you may choose to relocate or downsize now that you don’t need as much space. Moving into a property that’s a bit smaller can lead to a more relaxing lifestyle. Here are some of the upsides of downsizing.
Making a Fresh Start
Downsizing can allow you to move closer to the city or a more scenic location. If you choose to move into an apartment, you’ll also meet new people who live in the building and potentially socialize with other empty nesters. Locations that are close to interesting restaurants and other attractions are ideal, especially if you’re single and looking to get back into the dating scene.
Reducing Living Expenses
Selling your current home and moving into an apartment can help you pay off your mortgage and other personal debts like credit cards. You’ll also avoid the costs associated with owning a home, including HOA fees, property taxes, repairs, maintenance, and homeowners insurance. Then, you can invest the leftover money from the sale or use it to support a swankier lifestyle.
Living in an apartment that’s managed by a reputable company means that you can enjoy many amenities, like a swimming pool or barbeque pit, without having to maintain them yourself. You won’t have to cut the grass, clean the gutters, or do any of the other periodic chores that are part of owning a home. You worked hard to raise your children, so you deserve to take it easy.
If you embrace it, downsizing can be a fun part of this new phase of your life.
