Well, you’re not alone!

According to the National Association of Home Builders (NAHB), 60% of homebuyers are considering downsizing to smaller, more efficient homes. The economy is playing a significant role in this decision but, for the most part, our society is full of Baby Boomers who don’t quite need the space that they once did. Here are 7 benefits of downsizing your home:


1) Save money: When you buy a smaller, more energy-efficient home, you’ll save money on your utility bills. You’ll also reduce your maintenance expenses. You will most likely have a smaller mortgage. With less space to fill, you need less stuff! This allows you to also spend less on furniture and other home décor.


2) Reduce your impact on the environment: Your home will use less energy when you have less space to heat and cool.


3) Increase free time: You’ll spend less time cleaning and maintaining a smaller home. Use the extra time to travel, take up a hobby or just relax.


4) Enhance peace of mind: When you no longer have to worry about how you’re going to pay enormous utility bills and mortgage payments, you can sleep better at night.


5) Improve your health: Less stress usually equals improved health. Owning a large house full of stuff you have to pay for and take care of can be very stressful. When you downsize and let go of all that stuff, your stress decreases.


6) Put cash in your pocket: Sell your extra stuff on eBay, Craigslist and at a garage sale.


7) Simplify your life: Simplifying your life reduces stress, improves creativity and increases joy.


Making the decision to downsize can be difficult to do, but once you’ve taken the leap, you’ll discover many rewards. The more stuff you get rid of, the more you can save for things that truly matter, such as saving for your retirement or college education.

Ever thought of selling that million dollar property in the city that is just 20 ft from your neighbor and buying a 10 acre retirement house out in the country yet minutes to all facilities, no grid lock, and still have enough money to retire and enjoy life in a small community. If you know someone like this, tell them about the cariboo/ chilcotins in British Columbia. Imagine a nice log home on 3 acres with a river at your doorstep for $225,000 or a semi-retirement home/B&B and guest home on 2 acres with recreation land around you for $229,000. I am not kidding this is for real in British Columbia. Just check out my site, you will be blown away!

Our local log home builder and Entrepreneur Andre Chivigny of Pioneer Homes was our quest speaker at our Chamber of Commerce lunch yesterday. He was on 2 Extreme Home Makeover shows in the last 2 months. If you didn't see it he built the new log cabin to replace the one that had burnt down for the girl scouts in Georgia. It's awesome to see a local entrepreneur from our little town in BC have the ability to give back. If you need a contact for him send me your email and I'll pass it on.
