What is right-sizing?

Right-sizing is making adjustments to your living arrangements so that you feel comfortable and safe in your home. Right-sizing can mean that you are preparing to sell your existing property and move to one that is smaller, with less maintenance. Right-sizing can also mean delegating chores or heavy work around your property. The most important thing to remember is that right sizing should make you feel safe, happy and comfortable.

That is not to say that the choice to right-size is always easy. There can be family expectations about the family home. It can be hard to de-clutter after living in the same spot for a number of years. Change of any kind can be stressful. It is important to remember the long term benefits of right-sizing:

  • Having more free time to do the things you enjoy.
  • Not worrying about a task that is too big for you to handle.
  • You aren’t putting tasks off because you can’t do them or you may get hurt.
  • Financially, right sizing may help put you in a more secure position.
