There comes a time, in pretty much everyone’s life, no matter where you live in Northumberland. It could be a Cobourg home, maybe a Port Hope Property or for sure an estate in either Hamilton or Anlnwick – Haldiman townships. But the time will come when we question what is important to us about living in Nortumberland. Is it Family, or space, or a comfortable home. It might be health or the ability to do things the way we use to. It could even be material possessions, maybe a nice Port Hope yard, or Cobourg double car driveway.
But what about the work that goes with it
Do you want to spend your sunny Cobourg days working around the house, taking care of the yard, pool and garden ? Or do you want to enjoy your days going for walks maybe playing a bit of golf. You could visit with friends and family, without constantly thinking of all the things that you have to do.
For many, the family home in Northumberland, which served you well, is now too big. The kids have grown up and gone. The stairs, you and your partner use have become too difficult to manage. Who needs all that space ? You still have to clean it and heat it in the Winter.
You both think, “wouldn’t it be nice to live somewhere where the grass is cut and the snow is cleared for you and all you have to do is relax and enjoy life”. How about a nice size Cobourg or Port Hope condo? That lifestyle would work for both of you. But is it big enough ? what will you do with all your “stuff”?
Don’t worry. It’s easier than you think!
Once you have found, with the help of your Northumberland Home Values Group agent, the right size condo and in the right location. You know – still close to your family, walking trails, things of interest. It’s easy to get rid of “stuff” you don’t need anymore.
Call your kids and let them pick out what they want, donate some, sell some, auction some or all. After all, you haven’t used some of that stuff in a long time, why take it. We at Northumberland Home Values Group can help. We can suggest a reputable auctioneer, or even a charity that might work well for you. Now you can take only those things that are important to you.
It’s a preocess … we get that
It’s not as difficult as you might think. Hang on to the memories, not the furniture. Maybe you’ll want to replace some of the old worn furniture with a smaller, stylish, more modern pieces that you had your eye on.
You are now on your way to an easier lifestyle. You can relax and enjoy life, travel without worrying about someone having to take care of your house while you’re away.
