There are over 90 million Americans over the age of 60. Most of these people will consider downsizing over the next 15-20 years. After more than 40 years of collecting, there will be a lot of questions about how to start downsizing. The task, when taken as whole picture, is very daunting. Breaking up the task into small segments will make the downsizing task much easier.
Looking at most people’s homes, there are concentric circles of collected items throughout the house. By concentric circles we mean that starting from main living spaces (living room, dining room, kitchen) the items which are furthest from these main areas, in concentric circles, have less and less importance.
One other thing that many downsizing homeowners often do not consider is who they will chose to move them, when they plan to downsize. Getting a qualified, experienced “logistics specialist” is a great way to start planning your downsize. This should be a moving and storage company with multiple years in the business and, more importantly, that has staff and facilities which you can rely on. Many regular, run of the mill moving companies, have sprung up in the past several years, just to meet the demand of downsizing families. Without experience and quality facilities and trucks, the logistics of your downsize could be far more stressful than the downsize itself.
