We all come to that place in life where the home we live in no longer fits our requirements in a home. Maybe the kids are gone and you do not need the room, the stairs are becoming too much for so many reasons, the neighborhood no longer fits your lifestyle. No matter the reason, that change is a difficult decision. Several things to consider in making a lifestyle change or downsizing would be:
- do you want only a smaller home in a neighborhood setting
- do you want a different type of neighborhood
- do you want to stay in the area or relocate
These are only a few of the questions when it comes to downsizing or changes in lifestyle. Many people want to stay in the area they already live so that they can use the same drugstore and cleaners. They may only want a smaller home and a different style such as a one level home.
Some people decide they want a more different lifestyle such as an active adult community or an all inclusive neighborhood with everything right there . A place where the residents are more mature, the homes are smaller with nice appointments throughout, and still in close proximity to where they live presently.
The third decision is relocating. Are you relocating for better climate, more affordable living, wanting to be nearer family or for health reasons? Many factors can come into play when relocating. thus it is a hard decision. Here in Woodstock and the surrounding areas you have many choices.
