Find the Perfect Fit in Canyon Ranch: Tips on Knowing When to Downsize

September 13, 2023

As a trusted homebuilder in the Kansas City area, Inspired Homes understands the importance of finding the perfect fit for your new home—and sometimes, bigger isn’t necessarily better. Whether you're freshly retired or a new empty nester seeking a more manageable abode, it can be hard to know when to downsize, especially when you're in the midst of life's changes—which is why our team is here to help. Read on as we walk you through some valuable tips on recognizing when it's time to downsize and why you should consider making the move to Canyon Ranch with Inspired Homes. 

Recognizing when it’s time to downsize

Life is a series of chapters, and each chapter often brings with it different needs and priorities—and the size of your home should evolve with these changes. From children moving out to transitioning into retirement, recognizing when it's time to downsize can lead to a more fulfilling and stress-free living experience. Here are some signs that indicate it might be the right time for you to consider downsizing:

  • Unused Space: After the kids have left for college and the once vibrant rooms have grown quiet, your home might start to feel like it has too much space. If you find yourself wandering through rooms that hardly see any activity or cleaning areas that have become more of a burden, it might be time to evaluate whether you truly need all that space.
  • Financial Considerations: Downsizing can have significant financial benefits. A smaller home usually means lower utility bills, reduced property taxes and fewer furnishing costs. If you're nearing retirement or looking to cut extra expenses, downsizing could be a strategic move. 
  • Maintenance Overload: Larger homes often come with a heavier load of maintenance, from routine cleaning to seasonal yard work and everything in between. If you're spending more time on upkeep than enjoying your living space, downsizing can free up valuable time and resources, allowing you to focus on activities and experiences that matter to you most—especially in maintenance-provided communities, like our very own Canyon Ranch.

As the first homeowners in Canyon Ranch, we are looking forward to its continued development. We are very pleased with our experience throughout the viewing, negotiation and closing processes. We especially appreciated how responsive both Lori and Bob have been with regard to our questions and addressing very minor concerns resulting from our Villa being used as a model home. We are impressed with the quality of construction and attention to detail by Inspired Homes, including such things as using Moen products.
