How Downsizing Your Home Can Upgrade Your Life

May 7, 2021

 | 

If the COVID-19 taught us anything, it’s to appreciate the simple things of life. As millions of Americans have adjusted to a more simplified lifestyle, the notion that ‘less is more’ resonates more than ever before. Downsizing could be exactly what you need to maximize your life. 

 

“Many people downsize once they become empty nesters. Once their children have left the nest, homeowners begin to desire lightening their load,” shares Davidson Realty Realtor ®, Rebecca Schaffer

 

Perhaps the most obvious advantages of downsizing are financial. Selling your property with the intention of buying something smaller often means you have more money to afford upgrades in your new home that matter most to you.  But the savings don’t stop there. With less square feet under your roof, you’ll likely be spending less on your mortgage payment, utilities, and maintenance on your home. That extra cash in your pocket each month can help you go on vacations or have other experiences that will make lasting memories. 

 

Less house equals less upkeep. The time you would have spent cleaning and maintaining your home will now be cut significantly. Decreasing your space also means decreasing your belongings. Prior to your move, sort through items and only keep your more treasured pieces. A weight will be lifted off your shoulders as you say goodbye to the clutter and unused stuff that has occupied your space. Donate any items you are no longer keeping to those in need. A few of our favorite places to donate clothes and home goods are: Goodwill, BEAM Thrift, and Hope’s Closet

 

With less to worry about inside your home, the more time you can spend outside of your home. Spend your newfound free time to take up a new hobby, travel, and socialize with old and new friends. Northeast Florida is the perfect place to truly relax and live your best life. “Many downsizing buyers are taking advantage of Northeast Florida’s fifty-five and older communities for an active and social lifestyle. While others are opting for the beaches for a leisurely pace,” shares Davidson Realty Realtor ® Shelley Nemethy

 

From the beaches to the historic neighborhoods, there is something for everyone to enjoy. If you are interested in maximizing your life by minimizing your home, call the Northeast Florida real estate experts at Davidson Realty at (904) 940-5000.

4 Ways to Sweeten the Deal When Buying a Home

May 5, 2021

 | 

The real estate market is unlike anything we’ve seen before. Inventory is low, demand is high, and homes are flying off the market! “With the current market conditions, listings are receiving multiple offers and buyers need to be ready to act fast with their best offer when they see a listing they love,” shares Davidson Realty President, Sherry Davidson. In such an intensely competitive market, trust the real estate experts at Davidson Realty to help you put your best foot forward with these strategies. 

 

Get Pre-Approved for a Mortgage

The first thing you should do when you decide to purchase a home is obtain a pre-approval letter. A pre-approval letter not only states what a lender is willing to lend to you but shows the seller you are serious and prepared to purchase a home. A pre-approval letter shows legitimacy and a sign of good faith that they can afford to buy the home. Sellers are more likely to select an offer that is pre-approved than one that is not. 

 

Eliminate Contingencies

A clean offer is extremely attractive to sellers. “Any contingencies you have in your offer could be a negative to the seller. Sellers want a low risk and speedy closing,” shares Sherry. Appraisals are often a major cause of home sales falling through. Eliminating this step allows for a smooth sale process with minimal chance of things going wrong. As the buyer, you are effectively taking the risk off the home seller and putting it on to yourself. 

 

Make an All-Cash Offer

All-Cash offers provide the unique opportunity of keeping the sale primarily between the buyer and the seller. Cash offers tend to be stronger than offers utilizing traditional financing because they are less risky for the seller. With a cash sale, no appraisal is necessary since there is no mortgage lender involved. The absence of a mortgage lender also allows for a quicker closing. A fast timeline is advantageous for sellers because the sooner they close, the sooner they get paid.  

 

Be Flexible

Including a flexible timeline in your offer can go a long way with sellers. Depending on the sellers’ situation they may need more or less time in the home than the traditional 30-day closing period. If you are not in a hurry to move, being as adaptable as possible will be to your advantage as the sellers will then be able to decide what works best for them. This can go a long way, especially if competing offers come with strict deadlines. 

 

If you are ready to begin the search for your next home, call Davidson Realty today to help you get started.
