Are you tired of all that maintenance of a big house with lots of acreage?  Or maybe you’re just getting a little older and don’t want to do the yard work anymore?  Or have physical challenges been an issue lately in your home and it’s time for a condo or apartment?

These are all possible reasons that you might need to downsize from your current home.  At Josh Lavik & Associates we can help.  We’ve helped lot’s of people over the years and understand the challenges that come with downsizing from one home to another.

At Josh Lavik & Associates, we are on a mission to give our clients A Better Real Estate Experience. When it comes to selling a home that you have lived in a long time, often this is an emotional challenge. Often the hardest part is figuring out what to do with all the stuff. Don’t worry! We have a game plan. If you need to downsize, then we recommend meeting with someone on our team several weeks before going on the market. We can then help you analyze what all needs to be done (if anything) to maximize your equity position when selling. If you need connections to painters or a handyman, then we will provide a great recommendation as well.

Signs it might be time to downsize:

  • You have lived in your house more than 10 years.
  • It takes a lot of time and effort to get up and down the stairs.
  • You're tired of spending the entire weekend cleaning up the yard or the inside.
  • Your kids are all out of high school.
  • Your kids keep suggesting that it's time to move into an apartment, condo or assisted living complex.
  • You're retired now and want to travel more.
  • Home maintenance becomes a bit more of a chore than it used to be.
  • You don't want to keep paying that large property tax bill.
  • You love going to downtown Madison and feel like it would be fun to live there instead of the suburbs.
  • You know it's time and just need to make it happen!
