My journey

Setting goals, expectations and building on new opportunities

Conversation over coffee

Happiness doesn't have just one address

When you discuss moving with a loved one, set a respectful tone and consider options that may suit the lifestyle. Get professional advice on property value, taxes, moving and closing sale costs. Here are some reasons why it might be the right time:

  • Monthly housing expenses have risen and you are no longer using all of your property
  • Maintenance takes up too much of your time
  • You are no longer tied to your location and it's time to start fresh

Divide and conquer

Once you've chosen your preferred housing type, it's time to  sort your options. You may start by researching online or speaking with friends to organize a wish list:

  • Base pricing, additional charges and annual rent increases
  • Floor plans & amenities
  • Waitlist length
  • Online reviews & accreditations
  • Pet friendliness

Donate, sell & keep

There are thrift stores and charities that may truly benefit from your generosity. Sell items that have served their purpose or can be re-homed to family and friends. Consider garage sales, online platforms, classifieds and consignment stores. Keep items that are functional or beautiful for your space.

“Keep only those things that speak to your heart. Then take the plunge and discard all the rest. By doing this, you can reset your life and embark on a new lifestyle.” — Marie Kondo.
