Downsizing, with Vibe and Energy
Do you have kids heading off to University in the Fall, or who moved away, leaving bedrooms sitting empty and the recreation room unused? Are you beginning to think about the size of your home and upkeep, and is the prospect of lightening home ownership by downsizing during this hot market sound like a good idea?
Downsizing can be a great idea. There are many options to meet the needs of homeowners wishing to trade in their family home for one that suits their lifestyle today.
Welcome to the condo market. When people downsize, many travel or buy recreational property, and do not want the upkeep and security concerns of owning property. There are great options. Lower Lonsdale is the condo corridor on the North Shore, offering access to amenities, vibrant restaurants, close stroll to Lonsdale Quay and quick access downtown with the Seabus.

The condo world offers good choice, but can be intimidating. Condos provide a variety of features, amenities, fee structures, maintenance plans and restrictions, which are important to clarify, as well as to understand which is best suited to your situation. Begin your move to a condo with a quick conversation. I will explain important details to be considered and help narrow your search to properties that offer the best home for your lifestyle.

It is good to approach life’s decisions with an open mind and practical reasoning, however a little humour keeps the process more enjoyable:
“I installed a skylight in my condo… the people who live above me are furious!”
“Everywhere is within walking distance if you have the time.”
