Downsizing Advice All Seniors Need to Hear


Photo By: Unsplash

Downsizing is becoming common among seniors, and for good reason. For one, it could be the difference between a lower mortgage payment (or none at all), freeing up income for leisure and expenses. It also means a much smaller house to keep up, which improves both safety and accessibility. If you’ve been toying with the idea of downsizing, the following are some pieces of advice you should take to heart.

Is It Time to Downsize?

There’s not a definitive answer to this question because there are several scenarios in which it makes sense to downsize. You could have a home with many rooms going unused or one that isn’t conducive to aging in place, or you may have unmanageable monthly expenses and difficulty keeping up with cleaning and maintenance.

How to Begin the Downsizing Process

You’re downsizing your home, but you’ll also need to downsize everything in it to fit comfortably in your new home. Where do you begin? Well, before you start, there are some smaller details you should handle first before you tackle the downsizing process. Take photos of your home to keep as mementos, sort through/purge paperwork, and label photographs. Decide what you’d like to gift to family and friends, as it isn’t feasible or fair to pay for storage for items they aren’t yet ready to accept.

Once you’ve done this work, you can get started downsizing by first taking inventory of all your things and sorting them into piles to keep, give away, donate, sell, or throw away. Measure your new space with a tape measure so you can determine what furniture will fit and what needs to go. There are some items that you should be able to easily let go of such as duplicate items, unwanted/unworn clothing, miscellaneous gadgets, clutter, and anything you’re currently paying to keep in storage.

Finding the Right Home

Once you see all the homes on the market, you may begin to feel a little overwhelmed. Remind yourself that this simply means you have plenty of options, ensuring you find the right home without making any compromises on wants and needs. So, what should you look for? You might already have your own list of must-haves, but don’t lose sight of the big picture, which is a home that is smaller, accessible, safe, and senior-friendly.

Start by pinpointing the best location, whether that’s near family or close to stores, health care facilities, and entertainment. Don’t forget about senior-specific amenities as well, such as the size and layout. For example, a claw-foot tub is gorgeous, but an accessible bathtub/shower is both reasonable and safe. You will likely find that whatever home you choose needs some modifications to make it accessible, such as grab bars, ramps, or widened doorways, so be sure to factor this into the price.

However, it is important to note that downsizing doesn’t necessarily mean moving to a smaller home. If you need additional assistance with activities of daily living, your health has declined, or you’re experiencing safety concerns such as trips, falls, or confusion, now could be the time to put some serious thought into downsizing to an assisted living facility. Schedule some assisted living tours, and you’ll see that assisted living may not be what you’d expect because you can still be self-sufficient in this environment. The average monthly assisted living cost in Orlando ranges anywhere from $1,500 to $7,770, so you’ll want to do an extensive search and take your time.

Many seniors have to downsize. Instead of toying with the idea, take the first step in actually doing it. Although it’s a big step, the benefits of doing so make it a leap worth taking in your golden years.

On-Demand Project Managers to Your Site! Perfect for Contractors and Home Flippers


Why is Residential Construction is Ripe for On-Demand Disruption?

With a record year for the on-demand industry in 2019, the big prediction for 2020 is that on-demand companies will expand to new industries.

This is happening now in residential construction. A common issue with residential construction is going over budget, not meeting deadlines and plainly losing (wasting) money primarily due to lack of communication.

Most contractors do not use project management software to keep their jobs in-line.

95% of all residential remodel projects end up in frustration. Homeowners go into a project excited about their contractor only to soon be in the dark about what is going on.

TRY Project Buddy Services Today!

Check out: The new on-demand startup “Project Buddy” http://www.projectbuddyservices.com is the 1st of its kind and planning to revolutionize the industry: Creating completely transparent transactions between homeowners and contractors. Simply put, Project Buddy helps organize projects.

Project Buddy
Project Buddy Founder, Robert L. Williams

“After years of consulting in the construction industry I found that almost every job had a point where the client thought they were being cheated, it was almost always due to a simple lack of communication. Construction remodel projects are very organic and change daily. I started Project Buddy to help both Contractor and client stay up-to-date on a weekly basis.”

Project Buddy, from PGN Design Group, works with a cloud-based construction software that all parties have access to with their smartphone, tablet or computer. Project Buddy finally makes it easy for homeowners to follow the progress of their construction project from anywhere and makes it easy for contractors to keep their clients updated on day-to-day progress of their projects. It works with 5 easy steps.

  1. Upload project information to Project Buddy cloud-based software.
  2. Take daily photos of the project.
  3. Create daily work logs.
  4. Contact all contractors, subs and architects for scheduling purposes.
  5. Create an “end-of-week” report for the project.
project-buddy-logo

So who’s doing the actual work? Numerous “Buddy’s” manage jobs in the areas that they live in. They can work as much or as little as they want. Think of it as the “Uber for Construction Projects“.

The service will operate on weekly contracts so that there is no big commitment from homeowners or Buddy’s. For contractors, there’s no need to hire and train full-time employees only to have the burden of their salaries on the books when it gets slow.

At the end of each week, clients have the ability to either “opt-in” if they like the service or “opt-out” and we’ll see you on the next one!

Project Buddy will have the ability to do one or all of their jobs. The company is poised to disrupt the residential construction industry by helping smaller companies with growth, and larger companies with quality control. The price is $497/week for most projects, cheaper than the cost of a laborer sweeping up the site!

Why Use Them?

  1. Lost Time = Lost Money
  2. Cloud-based Software = Transparency, 24/7 access from any device.
  3. Organize contractor = Get’s the Job Done on time and on-budget!
  4. Weekly contracts = No Big Commitment
  5. One low rate for any size project (single-family or multi-family)

Project Buddy has launched in Los Angeles and the San Francisco Bay area with expansion to other major cities in the U.S. later in the year.
