Downsizing is more than just moving to a smaller house. Downsizing may not even involve moving to a smaller house.
I see this very often when working with buying relocating to one of Viera, Florida's 55+ communities. While Viera 55+ communities like Heritage Isle and Grand Isle offer smaller single family homes they also offer larger homes in the 3,000 plus square foot range.
Likewise, the Indian River Colony Club in Viera offers single family homes in all sizes as well. But, Indian River Colony Club is not the same as the other two Viera 55+ communities.
For those seeking smaller, Heritage Isle offers patio style (villa) homes in the 1200 to 1,500 sq. ft. range with a single car garage. Heritage Isle also offers the option of two bedroom two bathroom one car detached carport condominiums in the 1,100 to 1,400 sq.ft. range.
As I mentioned in the opening paragraph... downsizing may not involve a move to a physically smaller property. It may simply refer to getting rid of some of the clutter of day to day life.
Things like work, lawn maintenance, exterior maintenance, the hassle of the big city and traffic. After this past winter up north it may mean no snow shoveling and the occasional polar vortex!
Whether downsizing means smaller, larger or less work, the 55+ developments in Brevard County, Florida deserve a look if one is considering downsizing, either physically or mentally, and relocating to central Florida.
