Are you Interested in Downsizing your home In Bonaire Georgia?
Bonaire has gained a lot of large neighborhoods with large houses, but some people are thinking they are not the best house for them. Here are some good points about moving and selling your large Bonaire Georgia house.
When you live in the same house for a long time, you accumulate a lot of stuff. Just the idea of moving all this stuff can make your stomach turn. The extra stuff you have in your house can cause stress. The good news is, that once you get started, it’s easy to keep going and you will be able to focus on all of the benefits of living in a smaller home. Whether you are an empty nester or just someone living in a larger house, downsizing your Bonaire house is one of the smartest moves you can make. Below are just a few of the reasons why we love smaller houses!
Less To Clean
One of the great things homeowners who have decided to downsize in Bonaire, is the low maintenance lifestyle they have in a smaller house. It is so easy to keep clean. You have less to dust, less to vacuum, and less space to maintain. Your saving a lot of time to do fun things. No unused areas to keep clean. When you live in a house that is the right size, you will only have to clean up after yourself, no a bunch of empty space.
Few Places To Accumulate Junk
Homeowners always fill their living space with stuff. The bigger the space, the more stuff they buy. It’s easy with “Peaches to Beaches” every year and yard sales every weekend. When you live in a small space, there are fewer storage options, meaning you will have to reduce the number of items you own. Minimizing the things you own and keeping them orderly can have astonishing mental health benefits. Doesn’t feel great when you have cleaned out your closet or garage?
Lower Utility Bills
A smaller house in Bonaire Georgia means less to heat and less to cool. Your utility bills are cheaper and if you’re using cable, that’s one less box to pay for. A smaller yard means less to water and fewer plants to maintain. All in all, you can count on your utility bills going down when you own a smaller house. When you look at your cost savings for the year, you could be talking about thousands of dollars!
Cheaper Repairs and Upgrades
When you live in a smaller house in Bonaire, the costs of repairs dramatically reduce from the cost of your large house. It costs much less to redo a small kitchen, re-carpet fewer rooms, and to replace the roof. Having a smaller house can save you thousands of dollars in upgrade costs when all is said and done. With less space comes less for you to have to fix, maintain, and upgrade.
A famous singer wrote, “Love grows best in Little Houses”. When the kids are always off in the game room, basement, or den, it makes interacting with them much more difficult. If they have moved out, that space is no longer needed anyway ( a smaller house will insure they can’t move back, He He). If they do still live at home, a smaller house will make families become closer both figuratively and literally. Living in close quarters will force your family to communicate and become more bonded.
There are numerous ways a smaller house in Bonaire will save you money. Besides the utility savings, you will also likely have a cheaper loan payment, lower property taxes, and cheaper insurance premium. You do want to retire someday, right? Your ownership costs for a small house will be much less than a large house of similar condition, in the same area. With all of the money you save, you can invest, travel, or leave something behind for your grandkids. Once you make the transition into smaller living, you will be surprised at what you are able to save and wonder why you didn’t do it sooner.
Downsizing your home is not so scary, but if you don’t need all the house you currently have now, it may be the best move you could make. You can feel good to simplify your life and your family. You will have more time with fewer chores to complete. We can make an offer on your larger house and get the ball rolling!
