At the other end of the spectrum, we have couples who are sick and
tired or maintaining their large, family home. Your large home was
fantastic for your family and created a multitude of memories, but now
that you’re an empty nester, it’s just too big. Whether it’s mowing your
lawn or dusting empty rooms, it’s simply too much work for you. Your
kids have left, or maybe only one’s still at home – it’s time to start
enjoying your free time!
Claim more hours back by moving into a townhouse. You’ll spend much less
time tidying and your garden will take a fraction of the time to care
for. Townhomes make fantastic ‘lock-up and leave’ properties – if you
want to head off on a trip for 2 weeks or 2 months, you can do so
without stressing about the state of the home you’ll return to.
With three bedrooms, you can have friends and family come to stay
whenever you like, and there’s plenty of room in the open-plan living
space to host gatherings and entertain. And, if you’ve been living in an
old home in need of updating or repair, a new townhome is going to feel
like a breath of fresh air!
Many downsizers also love the financial freedom that a townhome affords,
as they’re able to take some of the equity from the sale of their old
home for retirement.
