This is What You MUST Know About the Downsizing Process

Are you thinking about moving to a smaller home? It’s called downsizing, and it’s something a lot of people do when they want to simplify their lives. But before you make the big move, there are a few important things you need to know. Let’s talk about them and we will be your expert guides,  Joe & Charity Slawter from Live Well Home Group.


Understanding the Downsizing Process

Downsizing means moving to a smaller home, but it’s not as simple as just packing up your stuff. There are three important things you MUST know if you’re thinking about downsizing.


Navigating the Buying and Selling Process

The first thing to think about is how to sell your current home and buy a new one. This can be tricky if you own more than one home. You’ll need to talk to a lender to figure out what to do. We, Joe & Charity Slawter, know some really good lenders who can help you with this part.

We know people who can help you move from one home to another without too much trouble. Also, we will help you figure out the best way to do it, whether you want to sell your home first or buy a new one first.

Maximizing Your Home’s Value

The next thing to think about is how to make sure you get the most money for your home when you sell it. Even if your home is great, there might be things you can do to make it even better. We, Joe & Charity Slawter, know people who can help you fix up your home so you can sell it for a much better price. Let’s talk about how we can help you make your home worth even more!

  1. Making Outside Look Great: We, Joe & Charity, know that the first thing people see is the outside of your home. We can suggest you plant flowers, paint the front door a bright color, or fix up the driveway to make it look nice.
  2. Making Inside Look Super: Inside your home, we will help you figure out how to make it look nice. We can suggest you paint the walls, clean up clutter, or rearrange furniture to make rooms look bigger.
  3. Adding Amazing Stuff: Sometimes, adding a few amazing things to your home can make it worth more money. We can suggest you get new lights, update kitchen stuff, or put in new floors to make your home look fancy.
  4. Getting Ready to Show: When it’s time to show your home to people who might want to buy it, we will make sure it looks amazing. We might bring in people to help move stuff around, add nice touches, and make your home feel cozy and friendly.

Ensuring a Smooth Transition

Moving to a smaller home can be a big change, especially if you’ve lived in your current home for a long time. We, Joe & Charity, understand that, and we will help make the transition as easy as possible for you.
