The expression “bigger is better” doesn’t always apply to home ownership. While many people dream of sprawling mansions with 20 rooms situated on several acres of land, there are several reasons that homeowners today are downsizing. If you are downsizing your home for any of the reasons listed below, FasterHouse can help.
For some people, downsizing your home is a choice driven by their children moving out of the home. When raising a family, you need a more spacious home for your children to play and for everyone to enjoy their own space. But once your children have left for college or to start their own families, all that additional space may not only be unneeded, it may be unwanted as well. After all, the larger your home is the more work it takes to maintain the interior and exterior, and the more it costs for utilities like heating, cooling, and water. And avoiding things like lawn maintenance – or at least reducing it – can be a major positive as well. After all, no one looks forward to mowing the lawn.
You may also find that downsizing your home is a necessity rather than a choice. If you have lost your job and do not have an immediate opportunity, or have a new opportunity but not at the same salary, you may need to sell your current home in favor of a smaller one or a rental home. In this case, a simple matter of economics makes the decision to downsize for you. It will simply not make sound fiscal sense to continue living in a home that does not align with your current income level.
Regardless of what the reason is that you find yourself needing to downsize your home, FasterHouse can make the process a much simpler one than you might imagine. If you are downsizing your home, there is a good chance that you will be looking to do so as quickly as possible. For example, if you are downsizing due to economic reasons like a reduction in income, you certainly do not want to pay your old mortgage any longer than you have to.
