Cindy O’Gorman of Ebby Halliday shares reasons why downsizing to resort-living places like White Bluff Resort at Lake Whitney could be a perfect fit.
It’s time to trade unused square footage for quality of life. The real estate market is primed for prudent investors who realize sometimes less truly is more. Americans are house rich, but not many have liquidated their investment yet, even though it’s the ideal time to sell high in favorite popular neighborhoods and buy low in exciting new up-and-coming geographic areas.
Currently, we’re seeing a major shift in demographics, where more empty nesters are seeking relief from the financial and emotional burden of maintaining their large family homes. Upkeep and maintenance for sizeable city properties can quickly become costly while siphoning time away from enjoying a rewarding quality of life. If you find yourself in a home with more unoccupied rooms than residents, it’s time to consider selling your largest asset. Consider downsizing your family home to a less costly and more gratifying property.
