Do you live in a big house? Big houses make sense when you’re raising a family. They’re not so reasonable if your children are all grown up with kids of their own. That’s a sure sign that it’s time to downsize to a smaller, less expensive home. That’s a sensible, cost-saving alternative, but it’s often difficult to let go.
Your home isn’t just the place where you live, it holds rooms full of memories and decades of family joy. If you no longer need that much space, those warm and fuzzy feelings can cost you. Perhaps it’s time to take a practical look at the price you pay when you have “too much house”.
You Pay Big House Expenses
It costs money to hold onto space you don’t use or need. A big house comes with big bills and they get bigger every year. Your monthly statements explain the problem quite clearly.
- Heating and air conditioning bills
- Property taxes
- Landscaping costs
- Water bills
- Sewage bills
- Homeowners insurance premiums
Maintenance Costs Increase as Your Home Ages
Nothing lasts forever. If you’ve been in your home for a while, wear, tear, and deterioration costs a little bit more each year. As time passes, your plumbing will need repairs and you’ll need to replace your deteriorating roof. Your furnace will wear out and your hot water heater will break down. That’s just the beginning when you have “too much house”.
The only way to reduce or eliminate your big-house maintenance and repair costs is to sell it and move on. When you downsize to a smaller home, your maintenance costs downsize accordingly. If you move to a condo or an apartment, you eliminate many maintenance costs altogether.
You and Your Home Age Together
As you settle into retirement, your big home will likely need more personal care than you. If you plan to age-in-place, your home will require remodeling and retrofitting to keep you safe.
That can mean mobility structures, wider doorways, doorknob replacements, and more. Even if you’re a DIY home maintenance champ, eventually, you’ll need professional assistance to keep your big home livable. Moving to a smaller, single-level home now can save you time and remodeling costs later.
