Downsizing With Ease

Treeview Estates Retirement Village is excited to be welcoming Lorraine Cox from Downsizing With Ease to share her wealth of knowledge on the subject. With 20 years experience, Lorraine has helped over 5,000 people make their move. This special event will cover practical advice around decluttering and downsizing, as well as her top tricks and tips for getting through the process as smoothly as possible. Deciding to downsize is not always easy. However, it can be a wonderful opportunity to simplify your life and do the things you’ve always put off doing.  

Once you’ve made the decision to downsize, Lorraine advises her clients to make a wish list. Your next move should be one that is a good fit for all your needs and wants. This would include your ideal location, proximity to family and friends, and what amenities are most important to your retirement lifestyle, such as golfing or gardening. Maybe you’ve always dreamed of living near the water, or maybe the fresh mountain air is what makes you smile. Take time to explore all your options, and make sure your list accurately reflects your wishes.

Most downsizers fall into three categories. Those that have decided they no longer want the financial or physical burden of a larger, often older, house, those who have been looking forward to being able to travel more, with the freedom to come and go, without worrying about their home being secured or maintained in their absence, and those who are excited about an opportunity to cash in on their larger, older house and make a move into a smaller, newer home, that requires far less upkeep. Often, the decision to downsize is accompanied by a major life change, such as an empty nest or the loss of a partner, which can lead to feelings of loneliness or isolation. 

Choosing village living offers a wonderful community of new friends and interests, modern new homes, and the security and maintenance to give residents peace of mind, when at home or while travelling.

Having the support of a professional such as Lorraine can help take the worry and stress out of downsizing. Past clients share their own success stories, crediting Lorraine and her team with making the experience smooth and easy.
