Let’s face it, downsizing is one of the more arduous decisions you will make in your life. As you contemplate moving from a larger home to a smaller one, it will serve you well to look out for a variety of distractions that will be most compellingly presented to you. This will almost always happen and not just once: the more you’ll try to focus on the bigger picture, the harder the detractors will try to divert your attention.
If you have been wondering if downsizing from your larger house to the more compact lifestyle of a retirement community is the right step for you then you are not alone. According to a survey done last year, 52% of Ontario baby boomers (people born between 1946 to 1965) consider big cities unfit for retirement. And so, a majority are considering downsizing and moving out.
