It's not easy to make the decision to downsize to an apartment.

Your home is a place with many cherished memories. It could be where you've watched your children grow up, or where you've spent most of your adult life. Still, there may come a time when your home's size becomes inconvenient for your living situation. Here are some signs that will help you decide when it's the right time to downsize. 


You're retired

This is one of the most popular reasons that people downsize. Moving into an apartment can help you stretch your retirement money further. Choosing the right apartment community can also help you to connect with more people in your age group. Many of our senior living communities offer activities for residents and feature fitness centers, activity rooms, and beautiful grounds to walk around. 


You have unused rooms

Having rooms in your home that you no longer use is a sure sign that it's time to downsize. There are many reasons why you may have an unused room, but there are very few reasons to continue cleaning it and paying rent for this space. 


You're an empty nester

If you're no longer living with your children, you may want to cut down on space. The best part about being an empty nester is that you can choose a location and a community that is best for you! Maybe you'll move closer to your children and grandchildren, or maybe downsizing your space means upgrading to a more luxurious community
