2023 is here! The start of the year is the perfect time to evaluate trends in downsizing, especially if you are preparing for a big move or lifestyle shift. We’ve rounded up the most noteworthy downsizing trends, as well as a few predictions!
The biggest downsizing trend involves simple, more purposeful living. Many baby boomers will likely relocate to low-maintenance, less stressful communities in the new year. Although there are certain freedoms to owning a home, the benefits of senior living communities may outweigh the value and pride of ownership. Those benefits may include: daily activities like book clubs and game nights, on-site restaurants, movie theaters, interior home maintenance, housekeeping, and more.
Seniors will also continue to remove clutter from both their lives and homes! Similar to younger generations, many seniors are interested in keeping only what truly matters to them. Excess paperwork, out-of-style antiques, and expensive china are things of the past. Simplicity is key.
Finally, seniors will look for community. There’s nothing like being surrounded by friends at a similar stage in life as oneself. Socialization is a wonderful part of life, and many seniors will downsize to communities with group activities, amenities, and culture.
