Do you think it’s time for an exciting new adventure? Or are you trying to be practical in
downsizing for retirement? Either way, Karidis Retirement Villages is here to help you
find the perfect new place to live your golden years in style. Check out these downsizing
house tips to help you make the move and embrace retirement.
Make an Inventory
Before you can enjoy the many perks of downsizing, such as less maintenance and
enhanced living space, you need to get organised. It may sound overwhelming at first
but taking a survey of each room and making a list of everything you have will help in
the long run. You can identify the large items you must bring to your new home and
make a box of moving essentials.
Downsizing for retirement gives you a fresh start in a new community in a prime
location. To make the most of this move, you should strive to declutter wherever
possible. After all, when moving into a smaller space, you need to cut down on clutter
and only bring what you really want and need. Look at selling platforms, donation
programs, or giving items to family and friends.
Measure Out Your New Home
As you declutter and get organised, you’ll also want to measure out the living space in
your new home so you can decide on furniture. Remember, less is often more when
downsizing, so start with the basics, and then you can fill each room accordingly. You
may be going into a smaller house, but that doesn’t mean you have to give up on style
Explore Financial Planning for Retirement
Finally, financial planning for retirement is an important consideration when downsizing.
The sooner you start organising your finances and looking at your preferred housing
options, the easier it will be to get your money sorted. Many Australians have a great
experience downsizing with retirement villages where tailored financial solutions and
flexible moving arrangements are on offer.
