Embracing Right-Sizing: A Smooth Transition to Your Dream Home


Right-sizing has become a popular choice among active adults who recognize that retirement is best enjoyed while they are healthy, active, and able to live in their dream homes. Whether you’ve moved frequently throughout your adult life or are contemplating selling the large family home, the transition to a more suitable living space can be daunting. Experts call this “transitional trauma,” which comes from the challenge of parting with a lifetime of possessions and moving to a home that better fits your current needs and desires.


Discovering Your Dream Home

Imagine finding the perfect home for this exciting new chapter of your life. It features a luxurious owner’s suite, spacious walk-in closet, a gourmet island kitchen, guest accommodations, areas for hobbies, outdoor living spaces, and plenty of natural light. Best of all, it’s nestled in a beautiful community that’s convenient to shopping and entertainment, and you can connect with neighbors who share your life experiences and values.


Planning Your Move

To minimize transitional trauma, it’s crucial to have a detailed plan, seek assistance, and stay focused on your end goal. Here’s how to make the transition as smooth as possible:


Start with Storage

Begin by tackling rarely used items in basements, attics, closets, and filing cabinets:

- Discard any broken or outdated items or those you can’t remember the use for.

- Donate duplicates, and clothing in good condition that you no longer wear.


Enlist Professional Help

Consider hiring a senior move specialist. The National Association of Senior Move Managers has certified professionals who can assist you. Here’s how they can help:

- Assess your current belongings.

- Review your new floor plan.

- Design a layout for your new home that incorporates cherished items and new pieces
