Are you thinking about choosing a smaller home and are not sure if it’s the right decision for you to make?
Over the last two years more buyers across the United States have chosen smaller homes vs. bigger homes because they offer individuals and families a wide variety of benefits including the following:
Low Home Ownership Costs
From lower monthly utility costs, to lower property taxes, and homeowners insurance, a smaller house will come with lower homeownership costs. The money that you will save every year could be used for other things like paying for your children’s college tuition, taking a nice vacation, or investing in your retirement.
Smaller Homes Are Easier To Maintain
Owning a smaller home will be easier for you to maintain, compared to a bigger home which will have more bedrooms, bathrooms and square footage for you to keep up every month. Besides less maintenance inside, you will also have less landscaping to deal with if the home is situated on a smaller lot.
Small Carbon Footprint
Another huge benefit which comes from owning a smaller house is that a small house also leaves a smaller carbon footprint compared to bigger homes since you will be using fewer utilities to heat or cool your home during the year.
Smaller Homes Do Have Enough Space
Although one of the most common challenges is that smaller homes have less living space than large homes, the reality is that they do have enough space, if you purposely eliminate the clutter from your life. Concentrate on living with the items that you need and use on a regular basis.
Having less “stuff” also means that you will have fewer responsibilities to worry about and more freedom to enjoy your life.
