Do you need convincing to downsize? Are you ready?
Are you ready to downsize? Are you an empty nester or ready for a change? Condo living can present new opportunities, greater freedom and a simpler life. Maybe you want a more urban, stylish and pedestrian lifestyle. Maybe you want to minimize your possessions and have less home maintenance. Maybe your house really needs a renovation or you own a cottage where you spend a lot of your time.
You are worried about living in a smaller space or choosing the right floor plan for your lifestyle.
You might think it’s difficult to find the right condo in the right area.
You are nervous about condo fees, reserve fund, condition of the building, the view, and more.
HERE ARE SOME TIPS
- Find a good realtor and do some research. Get an opinion of value on your home, get some recommendations for decluttering and get your home staged for the sale.
- Make a wish list. Look at units in desired buildings that are in an area that you see fits your lifestyle. Check the walk score and neighbourhood as well!
- Make your decisions firm with pen and paper. You might find the expenses are equal or less living in a condo but the lifestyle provides greater freedom and less responsibility. Owning a condo in Toronto has been a good investment in the last 10 years, and many more to come.
- Create a plan and start the steps.
