We help all kinds of buyers including downsizing home buyers.
The home buying habits of people who are retired or are approaching retirement need to be taken into consideration by real estate brokers. Downsizing becomes essential when one gets older because the requirements change. A smaller house is enough for two people as it does not need much maintenance and is conducive to a mature lifestyle.
Connecticut Real Estate & Investment keeps these points in mind to help you downsize by finding the right home in Connecticut.
You don’t have to shrink yourself to get what you want.
The benefits of the downsizing include the following:
- Saving money
When the current property is sold at a premium, you can free up a huge amount of money. With this money, you can buy a smaller house and still have some funds left. Smaller homes reduce monthly expenses to a large extent. If you go for modern, energy-efficient homes, you can cut down electricity bills as well. This helps you in saving a lot of money. You can make diverse investments with this extra money and earn more.
- Lesser maintenance
New and smaller homes do not require a lot of maintenance because there is nothing much to clean and problems related to plumbing, electricity and drains rarely occur.
- Getting rid of clutter
The term downsizing not only means shifting from a bigger to a smaller home. It also means disposing unnecessary stuff to reduce the load that you carry to your new home. It forces you to choose the most essential items and get rid of the rest.
- Creative organization
A small house offers limited space to fit in a lot of possessions. You get the chance to be more creative with the space that you have to make the most of it. Compact closets, tall bookshelves and built-in cabinets are just a few ideas that you can try out in your new home.
- Freedom for travelling
When your workload gets reduced due to downsizing, you do not need to think of a lot of details before leaving the house for travelling. It takes less time to get the house ready to be left uninhabited. So, you can leave your home for extended periods of time.
Downsizing home buyers look for various amenities in a smaller space and generally prefer homes which are situated in areas where there are more number of people of their own age. Connecticut Real Estate & Investment provides guidance at every step to downsizing home buyers and helps them locate the best residence in Connecticut which suits their requirements perfectly.

“A Buyer’s agent represents the interests of the buyer in a real estate transaction. The Buyer’s agent’s responsibilities to the buyer are: undivided loyalty, obedience, diligence, disclosure, confidentiality, accounting, and reasonable skill and care. All duties are fiduciary — they are owed exclusively to the buyer – NOT to the seller.” – CT Dept. of Consumer Protection
A buyer’s agent can work for a traditional agency which can put you at risk. Traditional agencies take listings and promise to get the top price for the seller. If you don’t work with an exclusive Connecticut Real Estate Brokerage that Never takes listings, you will likely end up signing a dual agency agreement.
