Advantages of Downsizing
in Retirement
•Downsizing in retirement can reduce expenses
like utilities, taxes and maintenance while
freeing up funds for other expenses such as
healthcare and travel.
•Downsizing simplifies life: smaller home = less
cleaning and maintenance. Ideal for those who
want to pursue hobbies or travel, and helps
retirees focus on important possessions.

Discussing Your Options
with a REALTOR
•Discuss downsizing options with a REALTOR
for valuable insight into the local market and
finding a suitable home.
•Talk to your REALTOR about what you want in
your new home, like location, size, amenities,
and accessibility.
They'll use this to help find
properties that fit your needs and assist you in
the buying or renting process.
The Financial Impact of
Downsizing
•Retirement downsizing can boost finances. It
frees up cash and slashes expenses like taxes,
utilities, and upkeep. This income supplement
can make retirement more fulfilling.
•Think of the costs before downsizing. A smaller
home saves money on maintenance, but
buying or renting a new place can be pricey.
Closing costs, moving expenses, and higher
condo/apartment fees are factors to consider.
Considering Your Future
Needs When Selecting a Home
•To downsize your home, consider future needs
because what works now may not work later on.
•Include accessibility features for future needs,
such as step-free entrances, wider doorways,
and accessible bathrooms.

Buying a Condo or Renting
an Apartment?
•To downsize in retirement, decide if you want
to buy a condo or rent an apartment, based on
your needs and preferences.
•Condos = stability & equity.
Renting = flexibility & less maintenance.
Retirement lifestyle
•Retirement downsizing can be daunting, but
it's also an opportunity to create a fulfilling
lifestyle. A smaller home frees up time and
resources from maintaining a larger property.
•More freedom means pursuing neglected
hobbies and traveling, which is easier and
more affordable after downsizing.
Tips for
decluttering
•Begin decluttering by getting rid of unused
items like clothes that don't fit, duplicate
kitchen gadgets, and outdated electronics.
•Break decluttering into tasks. Don't do it all in
one day. Instead, focus on one area at a time
and set a daily goal.
•Consider holding a Yard Sale
•Donate items to a registered Charity
Additional Resources
Available
•Local senior centers and online resources offer
assistance for downsizing, including classes,
professional organizers, blogs, forums, and
eBooks.
•A good REALTOR helps you navigate the real
estate market, property search, and negotiate
deals. They also support downsizing for buyers
or renters.
•Consider hiring a De-Cluttering Service
•A professional Moving Company
Conclusion
•In retirement, downsizing can give more time
and money for hobbies and travel while also
reducing expenses.
•To downsize effectively, talk to a REALTOR and
choose a home that suits your future needs.
Also, use practical decluttering tips for an
easier process.
•Consider downsizing in retirement planning
with additional resources available.
