Thanks to the AARP we know that during the next 18 years an average of 8,000 Baby Boomers per day are expected to turn age 65.
This news means there’s going to be a lot of Baby Boomers thinking about downsizing from larger homes to smaller Houston Texas homes to simplify and enjoy the next phase of their lives.
If you’ve been thinking about downsizing to a smaller home this post will cover four reasons why you should consider downsizing.
Reason 1 – Smaller Home Means Smaller Monthly Mortgage Payment
The first reason to consider downsizing to a smaller home is a smaller monthly mortgage payment, especially if you’ve built up a sizeable equity in your home over the years.
Reason 2 – Less Work and More Time to Relax
By downsizing to a smaller home you will be able to cut back on the work load which comes with maintaining a bigger home.
Imaging being able to spend more time relaxing or enjoying the wide variety of outdoor recreation choices the Houston Texas area has to offer you.
Reason 3 – Upgrade Your Lifestyle
Almost every Baby Boomer has put their kids first and themselves second during their lives including deciding on where they want to move.
When you downsize to a smaller home you will have the freedom to choose where you want to live and “upgrade” your lifestyle so you can be closer to restaurants, shops, stores, live music and all of the cool things the Houston area can offer you.
Reason 4 – Eliminate the Clutter
Last of all, but most important, the final reason why you should consider downsizing to a small home is eliminating the clutter from your life.
For some readers it may take time to eliminate clutter from their lives but there’s nothing more liberating than to have less “stuff” and the ability to get away on a moment’s notice.
