At some point in our life, many of us have acquired a house and a lot of 'stuff' to go in it. We start with the basics, and then over the years we accumulate more and more--stuff that we need at the time and stuff that (we think) we want. We inherit stuff handed down by our parents and stuff left behind by our children. At some point, we become 'overstuffed'! One day we look around and think "where did all of this stuff COME from, and what am I going to DO with it?"
It's important that your home and its contents fit your lifestyle, whether you are raising a family or are a single person or a couple. Too much space can be hard to maintain, financially and physically. Too little space can cause stress and anxiety. Many of us have either more or less space than we really need. The goal of rightsizing is to have the space--and the amount of stuff for that space--that you really need in order to live comfortably.
To find your rightsized space, you typically have 2 choices: re-organize the old space, or find a new one...
Maybe what you need is a clearing-out and re-organization of your present living space...
Years of accumulation can make even the most spacious home stressful to live in and difficult to navigate.
We will help you go through your home and decide which items should be kept, discarded, donated or sold, then arrange for their dispersal. (This service is also available for those who need to clear out an estate or empty a house before putting it on the market.)
We will work with you to organize the rest of your home so that it functions well for you and provides a safe, calm, and uncluttered atmosphere.
...Or has your present house outlived its usefulness?
Would you like a place that better fits your current lifestyle? Are you tired of the responsibility and expense of maintaining your house and yard? Has it become difficult to find help with repairs and odd jobs? Would you like to be able to use the equity that you have in your house? We will work with you to find the best method for marketing and selling your house.
Just as we often outgrow our small starter house, we also outgrow our large family house--but home we carry with us always.
A house that has been lived in for many years often needs some 'freshening up' and staging before it goes on the market. You only have one chance to make a good first impression, and we'll work with you to make sure that your home's first impression is a GREAT one! From the initial planning to clearing out the house for its new owner, we will work with you every step of the way along the road to your new home.
