Simplicity is about more than making space in your home. It is also about creating more time in your life, enabling you to indulge more in what your heart wants to do – feeling free and unshackled from what others need us to do.

Simplifying, decluttering, or downsizing your life can be a good thing and not necessarily something to fear. Life can be short or long, but it is all very precious – we genuinely need to make the most out of it.

Are you thinking about downsizing in retirement?

Downsizing after retirement is a massive change, particularly when owning a family home with a large lawn was somewhat hardwired into the great Australian dream. However, with many retirees purchasing their homes in the early 1980s and now having paid off their mortgage – add in years of rising house prices, and we now have a lucky group of retirees living with an asset they probably never expected to have.

And with the kids having now left the nest, the alarm clock on snooze, busy schedules freed up, one may even be walking around the yard thinking that it is starting to feel a lot more like a small acreage block to look after – downsizing could quite possibly be the new chapter in your life that you are looking for.

Downsizing could also be that chance to try something new or a great way to boost one’s retirement fund and make their living situation more comfortable.

What do you want from retirement?

Many retirees are now thinking more about the ‘what ifs’ of life than when we were in our twenties – recent events have made us question our wellbeing, including mental health, our sense of feeling safe and secure, and the importance of community.

Have you considered vertical living?

If you’re thinking about selling your home and downsizing, now could be the time to consider how downsizing and retiring to apartment living could potentially upsize your freedom?

Advantages of downsizing to apartment living.

  • Increased cash flow — Downsizing from a large family home could free up financial opportunities allowing for new and exciting dreams and adventure.
  • Peace of mind – safe and secure 24/7.
  • Easier to maintain life — A smaller place takes less effort to clean and maintain – no yards to mow!
  • More convenient — A location close to transport, retail infrastructure, and health services.
  • Lower insurance and utility bills — Generally speaking, a smaller home can cost less to insure and is cheaper to heat or cool.
  • Retire with a like-minded community – Meet and connect with new friends and be part of a safe and secure retirement village.
