Downsizing Your Lifestyle

We Help Organize and Sell Your Possessions 

How To Downsize Retirement

“There’s just way too much stuff in here.”

Have you ever found yourself saying these words as you scan the different rooms of your house? Often the large amount of possessions we have can make the thought of moving, especially into a smaller space, overwhelming. You find yourself wondering; “Where do I even begin?”

Living a full life usually means you’ve acquired many things; furniture, extra vehicles, holiday ornaments, collections, tools, books, kitchen appliances, dishes, linens, clothing, sporting equipment, camping gear, garden pots, and photos. The list goes on and on, not to mention the numerous items your grown children may have left behind, using their old bedrooms or your basement as their personal storage lockers.

When the time comes to move into a smaller house or retirement residence, don’t let the weight of your possessions, and the uncertainty of what to do with them, delay your future.

Choosing what to take to your new home can be tough, especially if you’ve lived in your current house for a long time. Gordon’s Estate Services will help you plan your new space, develop a floor plan and work with you to decide which pieces of furniture you can reasonably take.

Finally, we’ll help you make a list of what you plan to keep, as well as what you will bring with you to your new home.

Now that you’ve decided what to take, you will need to decide what to do with your excess possessions. You can give things to family or friends or donate them to your favourite charity. Many of your treasured possessions are still in great shape and are highly sought after by others and could fetch a nice price.

Gordon’s Estate Services works with an online auction company who are able to sell your possessions in a real auction setting. Unlike traditional garage sales or other online selling sites where you set a price a people barter it down, in an auction sale the price can only go up!

When you are considering downsizing your lifestyle - call us to discuss the opportunity. We can help make it all happen, so that you can enjoy a simpler, easier to manage lifestyle.

“We tried downsizing previously, it didn’t work for us, we had too much stuff. But Gordon’s came in, and organized us because it was too overwhelming to do on our own. It made it a lot easier. Manson was excellent as our agent and worked strictly for us. We received multiple offers, which we never expected and went for over the asking price. We were thrilled!”
