6 Downsizing Mistakes Even Smart People Make

This past year, my mother downsized from our six-bedroom family home into a two-bedroom condo in a senior development. Although she was nervous to cast aside her old life, now that the deed is done, she feels elated and free—and wishes she’d done it years earlier.

Now, my mom no longer worries about keeping her lawn mowed and driveway clear of snow, because maintenance staff does it for her. Rather than rattling around a huge house that took hours to clean, she has a manageable space she can easily tidy up herself. And, not incidentally, she has more money for whatever comes down the road.

Nonetheless, downsizing can still fill people with dread; experts say this is largely because they’ve heard horror stories from people who went about it all wrong. Here are the top six mistakes people make when downsizing, plus some ways to make the process easier and less intimidating.

<p style="text-align: justify;"><strong style="font-size: 1.17em;"><br>Why Do People Live here?</strong></p>
<p style="text-align: justify;">Stone Gate is a beautiful neighborhood of single family homes that is conveniently located just 20 miles outside of Downtown Houston. It's not uncommon to see neighborhood kids playing the streets of this quaint little oasis in the suburbs during the summer and sledding down snow covered streets in the winter. It's far enough from the main hustle and bustle of the city that residents don't feel like the urban center of Seattle is knocking on their door.<br><br></p>

Should I Buy or Sell a Home Without an Agent???

It’s a slow Sunday morning. You’ve just brewed your Nespresso and popped open your laptop to check out the latest home listings before you hit the road for a day of open houses.
You’re DIYing this real estate thing, and you think you’re doing pretty well—after all, any info you might need is at your fingertips online, right? That and your own sterling judgment.
Oh, dear home buyer (or seller!)—we know you can do it on your own. But you really, really shouldn’t. This is likely the biggest financial decision of your entire life, and you need a Realtor® if you want to do it right.

Comment and I’ll tell you why!


Who determines depends on your space….My style of writing is I believe for the massive of those individuals that has been told they can’t.

E.G. you cannot play basket ball…you are not fast enough….you are too short….you not in the top 2 percent…you not the person for this job…etc. What I say to them Now is, I know longer live by I can not!!! ……. I bleed WATCH ME!!

My career has finally begin to turn around….I always had things and people around me that was close and literally wants to see me do good…..Now since I am a realtor my WATCH ME is to those customers that has been let down in regards to customer service and expectations…… I have been in the real estate business for 5years and #s.

Well thats it for now, thank you for reading and if you have any insight on this post and/or others in the future please…go ahead reach out and provide comments…


Thank you
