Downsizing, Decluttering, Packing, Helping Move

Coralie Metcalfe is an organizing expert in your community, specializing in downsizing seniors and empty nesters who have too many things! Downsizing is a unique pivot in everyone’s life that comes with many emotions! We spend our lives stepping ‘up’ so this new direction can leave people in a lot of distress, quite reasonably.

 

You may be hesitant to think about your own downsizing because you don’t know where to start after many years living in the same home. It’s human to acquire many things. It’s also natural to feel overwhelmed every time you try to get rid of things.

Some Of Your Financial Options

I'm happy to introduce Brenda Jafrudy, Mortgage Professional with BRX Mortgages. Brenda is a great resource when looking into Reverse Mortgages and HELOC (Home Equity Line of Credit). 

Reverse mortgages are not the same thing as a standard home equity loan. Reverse Mortgage  specifically geared to help seniors access equity in their homes. As such, reverse mortgages have a specialized lending process, more targeted qualifications, and a different repayment schedule than home equity loans. In some part, these safeguards are put in place to help protect seniors using reverse mortgages.

Packing Up Your Life

First you have to declutter your house. That can seem like a daunting task unless you break it down into easy to manage segments. You will have to purge in order to live in a smaller space whether that's a condo or if you choose to move to a retirement home or an assisted living facility.

Start early, start small using the Four-Box Method.  

Take four boxes and label them as follows and move room by room:

Trash: Things you don't need or want. Rule of thumb, if you haven't used it in 2 years, and are unlikely to use it for another 2 years, you may not need it. 

Give away/sell: Differentiate...

My New Blog Downsizing and Lifestyle Changes

  Welcome to my new blog,

Most of you know me and my family. Afterall, I've been working and living in Leaside for over 30 years. Our children probably went to school together. Maybe you and I chatted while attending some sports activities our children were involved in, hockey, gymnastics, cheerleading and so on. We may have sat on some local committees together, or you know me from many of my local fundraisers and you may have attended many of the activities I've organized in Leaside & Davisville over the years.

Over the last few years, many of my clients & neighbours have been...
