What You Need to Know About Downsizing

Understanding the Key Steps in the Downsizing Process


Comparative Market Analysis (CMA) is a tool we use to determine your home's value. This takes into account recent sales of similar properties in your area, providing a realistic price range for your property.

Stager Visit

Our professional stager will visit to assess your home, making recommendations for changes that could enhance its appeal. This could involve rearranging furniture, decluttering, or other aesthetic adjustments to create an inviting atmosphere.

Home Improvements

To maximize home value, small improvements may be suggested. Funding these can be achieved through a Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC), or a partnership with Curbio, a company that allows payment deferral until the sale is complete.

a) HELOC: A Home Equity Line of Credit (HELOC) is a loan option that lets you borrow against your home's equity to fund improvements. This is a flexible option as you repay the loan once the house is sold.

b) Curbio: Curbio is a unique service that specializes in pre-sale home renovations. They do the work upfront and you don't pay anything until your home sells, reducing the financial burden.

Estate Sale

(If Necessary)

If you have many unwanted items, we might suggest an estate sale. This can be a practical way to declutter your home, potentially increasing its market appeal and speeding up the selling process.

Marketing the House

We utilize a variety of marketing strategies to attract potential buyers. These include online listings, social media promotion, professional photography, and hosting open houses, ensuring your home reaches the widest possible audience.

Moving Process

The final step in downsizing is moving out. We can coordinate with professional movers to make this process smooth and efficient, ensuring your home is completely emptied and ready for its new owners.
