Once the kids leave the nest, you may wonder what to do with all the extra space in your home. As you become an active adult, chances are that you won’t need four bedrooms anymore or that huge yard to maintain. This may be the perfect time to sell your house and downsize, maybe even into a single-story home.
According to this article in KeepingCurrentMatters.com there are three main reasons why single level living in an active adult community may be for you.
What are the benefits of buying a one-story home?
Still not sure about buying a single-story home? An article from Home Talk covers several advantages of switching from two floors to one:
- Energy Efficient
“It is easier to heat and cool a single-story house [than] it would be to regulate the temperatures of a multi-story house.”
- Easier to Maintain
“Doing a general cleaning in a single story requires less effort and you will be able to see all areas that need cleaning and the areas are easily accessible.”
- Accessible for Everyone
“A single-story house can be accessed by anyone, whether they are young children or the senior citizens.”
If you are not sure where to move, consider this: It may be time to move to that home that you have always wanted in an active adult community. There are many benefits such as planned activities, people your age, and a home that allows you to age in place for as long as you need.
