Signs it's Time to Downsize Your Home

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 15, 2017

Key indicators it’s time to downsize, and features to look for in a new home

Abberly Place, Garner, NCOver the years, you’ve probably felt like your home’s footprint just wasn’t big enough. Whether the closets were too small or the number of cabinets too few, you may have dreamed of relocating to a larger space.

But as a retiree, that once-too-small home might be more space than you need—or want.

Here’s a look at the top signs that indicate it might be time to downsize your for a smaller, easier to manage space, and tips on how to find the right new home for you.

1. You have unused rooms

Having rooms you rarely—or never—enter unless it’s to air them out or vacuum now and then is a sure sign it’s time to downsize. Sure, having a bit of extra space to stash trinkets and holiday décor is handy. But maintaining a large house with multiple unused bedrooms goes beyond having an extra closet or cubby.

All that unused space is room you’re paying to heat or cool, paying taxes on and have to clean and maintain. And that can be a lot of resources spent for nothing.

2. Your yard gets the best of you

It shouldn’t be difficult to keep up with the maintenance of the home. Granted, no one expects you to look forward to tasks like mowing the lawn or giving the fence a fresh coat of paint. But if these and similar projects are becoming physically difficult to complete, it’s probably time to discuss options that require less upkeep.

Additionally, having to pay for help to accomplish the tasks is another indicator that it might be time for a smaller space.

3. You’re too far from family

Not able to take in as many of your grandkids’ soccer games or dance recitals as you want? If you feel isolated in your home, are too far from family or assistance, or all your friends have moved away, then you might want to downsize and move closer to loved ones.

4. Just too much stuff

If you’re constantly hunting down gadgets, gizmos and more that you’ve stashed in the basement, attic or back of a closet, Novak says you might have too much stuff. It’s tempting to hang on to every piece of memorabilia or want to fill up all the empty corners of a large home to make it feel less open.

But having too many odds and ends is a clear sign you’ve got too much space to fill. And downsizing will force you to pare down and prioritize what you actually need to hang on to.

5. You home is a goldmine

Your home’s value may have appreciated to the point where it’s more profitable to cash it in than hang onto it. Consult two to three realtors to have a market analysis performed and explore both your selling and buying (a smaller house) power.

Where should you go?

Once you’ve made the decision to downsize, look for out these key features in a new, smaller, home.

Location

Of course, you want to be near family members or reliable friends. But you also want to look for a new neighborhood that, if possible, is close to amenities and services (e.g., physicians, shopping and restaurants) that are important to you.

Opportunities to build your social network near your new home is another important considering. A community that promotes a more active lifestyle is a bonus. When you have walking trails, a park, a pool or a community center, you’re more likely to get out and enjoy life in your area.

Entryways

Even if they’re not a problem today, having to navigate stairs can become a burden as you age.

Even an entryway with a few stairs should be avoided when you’re looking for a long-term home. Look for the opportunity to choose or add a no-step entry that is level, so there is no uphill climb.

As you walk through any home you’re considering, imagine trying to navigate the spaces in a wheelchair. Are there thresholds to cross? Are the doorways wide enough to pass through without marking up the woodwork and trim? These details may seem unimportant now, but they’ll almost certainly impact your daily life in the future.

No matter what amount of space you downsize to, the feel is what’s most important. Many caution against settling for a property that doesn’t feel comfortable.

You want your new, downsized space to feel like home, even if it’s smaller than what you’ve be used to for years.

It Takes Longer To Break Even When Owning Instead Of Renting

Joseph Coupal - Friday, September 08, 2017

Abberly Place, Garner, NCThe Breakeven Horizon from Zillow, which measures the amount of time a person needs to live in a home before buying is financially better than renting, has increased 20 days from a year prior to 1 years and 11 months in Q4 2016.

Zillow says that the slowdown of home value growth in pricey markets, many of which are on the coasts, has lengthened the breakeven point.

The Breakeven Horizon factors in growth in rents and home values, price-to-rent ratios, and mortgage rates.

It now takes an additional year and a half to justify homeownership to renting.

Driven by both a slowdown in home value growth over the past year and by continued slowdowns to come, the Breakeven Horizon has lengthened in many of the nation’s most expensive markets.

An expected slowdown in the pace of home value growth in a number of pricey, fast-moving markets means it may take longer going forward to break even financially when buying a home in those areas compared to renting it.

Zillow’s Breakeven Horizon estimates the number of years you would have to live in your home for buying it to have been more cost effective than renting it. Factors including expected growth in rents and home values, price-to-rent ratios and mortgage interest rates can all have a significant impact on the costs and benefits of renting versus buying.

Because home values are growing more slowly, it will naturally take longer to earn enough equity in a home to offset the very large upfront costs necessary to purchase a home.

Home values have rebounded strongly over the past several years, and in some areas are higher than they’ve ever been, so the question of whether or not it’s a good time to buy is becoming less obvious to many households as home affordability itself suffers. Thankfully, for most households, buying a home is not – and should not be – about timing the market and making a financial killing. It’s about deciding where and how to live, and knowing how long you’ll need to wait before making those decisions again.
