Thinking About Moving To a Smaller Home or Renting?

Do your homework.

You’ve got this far in your life, why jeopardize all you’ve accomplished now? You have many options, choices and decisions to be made, the better informed you are, the better. The question I always ask myself when seeking information.

  • Is it true?
  • The source?
  • Unbiased?
  • Competency of the source, for example, is the advice scholarly ( teach but don’t do) or from experience?
  • Is the information fear-mongering, coming from lack or too good to be true?
  • What is the objective of the author, writer, or poster? To sell you or guide you?

For example, when I Google “downsizing a home in London, Ontario,” I got ‘about 6,380,000 results (0.34 seconds)’!

As a Realtor who has helped hundreds downsize, I recommend a six to twelve-month timeframe at the latest. It is an excellent time to start thinking about a move; my most contented clients are those who planned two to three years before the move!

"Not All Realtors Are The Same"! This website and content are for you and are designed and constantly upgraded with the latest real estate trends, how-tos, and what is for sale on MLS. Our primary focus is guiding home buyers and sellers to make good decisions. We believe selling real estate is a process, not an event or knee-jerk reaction; we sleep well at night and ensure our clients do as well! We are not for everybody, nor can we please everybody, nor do we tell people what they want to hear; I know that may be old-fashioned and boring, but we are dealing with hundreds of thousands of your hard-earned money. Would you rather be happy, excited and bored or unhappy, excited and make a poor choice? About Ty I am a Broker with Sutton Group Preferred Realty Inc., Brokerage and the team leader for The Envelope Real Estate Group, that's enough about me! You see, this is about you, you do not want to hear blah blah stuff about awards, designations, or that we walk older adults across the street (I used to help old ladies cross the street, but as I got older I did not want my wife to think I was flirting) the reincarnation of Mother Teresa, walk on water or anything else to impress you. We let the numbers speak for themselves; success leaves clues!
