Senior Spotlight: Downsizing Tips You Can Start Today

Now that we are all spending a great deal of time at home, have you noticed the home project list is growing?! Rooms to clean, pet peeves that are now ever-present and too much stuff creating too much stress… sound familiar? We get it, so this week we are excited to share 3 great resources with tips you can use today whether you are planning to downsize to a smaller space in the future or simply decrease your chaos and clutter.

DIVING INTO DOWNSIZING WHILE SHELTERING IN PLACE

We are pretty excited about this NEW blog on the NEW website of our friends at T-O-P Move Management. As a proud and ethically-driven member of the National Association of Senior Move Managers, T-O-P Move Management just published this great new piece on how you can start minimizing your possessions today (it includes a few no-contact resources for junk removal too!). Thank you Helen & team!

IT’S SO MUCH MORE THAN MOVING: YOUR GUIDE TO STRESS-FREE RIGHTSIZING & RELOCATION

Speaking of the National Association of Senior Move Managers… did you know that they have created this printable guide which includes “Ten Tips To Downsize & ‘De-Stress’ Your Move”? The #1 take-a-way from this read is to start early. Which means if you are at home with nowhere to go – you have no excuse! You do NOT have to have plans to list your home or to move in the next 12 months to start the downsizing & de-cluttering process. Note this guide also offers a section on understanding senior living, as well as what senior move managers do and what to ask if you are considering hiring one.

REAL ESTATE AGENTS ANSWER: WHAT ARE YOUR BEST TIPS FOR BUYERS WHO ARE DOWNSIZING?
