When is the right time to downsize?
When I speak to retirees about downsizing, most of them love the idea, however they tend to use excuses like:
“We know the house is too big for us, but while we can still manage it, we will remain here.”
“We have too much stuff to move. It all seems too hard.”
“We are not old enough to worry about that yet!”
But here is my favourite excuse I hear:
“The only way we are leaving, is in a pine box!”
News Flash – we are ALL eventually going out in a pine box. You don’t have to worry about that! The pine box will find you, no matter where you are living. It’s how you enjoy your life up until that day, that matters the most!
Then I speak with my past clients and this is what they have to say:
“We couldn’t be happier, we wish we had done this earlier.”
“We are so glad we did it now, if we had of left it till we were older, it would have been so much harder.”
“We love the fact that no matter what happens to either one of us in the future, we know the other person is safe and secure.”
“I am happier than I ever thought was possible at my time of life. I feel I now have an extra lease of life and so many of the worries I had previously have been taken care of.”
“We can just up and go on holidays whenever we want, and know that our home is safe.”
And this is what their adult children say!
“We love the fact that Mum and Dad are so happy. They are no longer waiting around for us to visit, they are always out enjoying themselves.”
“We don’t have to worry about them anymore. They are in a safe and manageable lifestyle that has everything they need at their fingertips.”
“It’s great, Mum and Dad will now be able to manage self-sufficiently, no matter what happens to them.”
“We are so glad they downsized. Now we won’t be left with the burden of decluttering their stuff when they are gone!”
