SOME BENEFITS OF DOWNSIZING YOUR HOME
The desire to downsize is a common reason people sell their homes. Maybe you had a larger home when your children were young, but now that they’ve grown there’s no need for the extra space. Or perhaps you’re tired of cleaning and maintaining a home that feels too big for your lifestyle. Whatever the reason may be, there are many benefits to downsizing. Nowadays, many single-family homes have multiple bathrooms, large family rooms and a number of bedrooms. While the space can be nice, it’s an awful lot of square footage to keep clean. Especially if you have a busy lifestyle. Downsizing is a great way to save money if you’d like to travel more or if you’d like to spend the majority of your money on things other than your house. This is because smaller homes usually have smaller mortgages and smaller utility bills. Downsizing to live in a condo in the heart of a busy city brings many more positives as you can often get by without needing a car. Imagine being able to walk everywhere and have restaurants, shops and entertainment practically at your doorstep. A less talked about benefit to living in a smaller residence is that it can bring families closer together. When your home is small, you have no choice but to spend time together. While this sometimes can be an irritating part of living in a downsized home, most families who’ve scaled down say it’s actually a positive in the long run. "
Chief Seattle, born in 1786 near Kent, Washington, was a Suquamish and Duwamish chief. The city of Seattle, Washington is named after him. Hudson’s Bay Company traders gave him the nickname Le Gros (The Big Guy) due to his height of nearly six feet! He has been said to have a voice that could be heard over 3/4 of a mile away. A widely know speech about Indigenous people’s rights and environmental values has been attributed to him. He died on June 7, 1866.
