Downsizing When Buying A Home | The GoWylde Team

Downsizing your home means so much more than just cutting back on square feet. Just like any buying process, it’s important to take a look at your changing needs and find a property that truly reflects what stage of life you are at. We help you get there smoothly, no matter what your situation, budget, or needs.

We’ve helped hundreds of homeowners downsize. There’s a lot to think about during this process, especially because you’re moving to a smaller space. We make downsizing when buying a home house as stress-free as possible, with a full team of experts to help you every step of the way.

Here are some common questions that homeowners have about downsizing, and the expert answers that will help:

Do I buy or sell first?
Downsizing when buying a home can be a challenge because no homeowner wants to carry two mortgages, or worse: be stuck with no home at all. Our expert buying and listing agents will ensure that you’re never in a bad financial situation. We’ll look at your current finances, the home that you’re selling, and the one that you’re buying, to find a strategy that works best for you.

How can I prepare?
The best way to prepare for a downsize is to take a look at what you’re bringing. Downsizing when buying a home means you’ll have less room, so you’ll have to cut down on the clutter. It’s a great chance to get rid of unnecessary knickknacks, and any unwanted furniture you can donate or toss out.

How do I find the right home to buy?
With us, it’s easy. Together, we’ll discuss your motivation for moving, and your plans for the future, to find you a home that not only suits your current lifestyle but will cater to your needs for years to come. We can show you a variety of home types, like condos, townhouses, and more in any of the great Guelph neighbourhoods.
