Benefits of Downsizing – 5 condos for sale in Barbados.

Downsizing is an exciting opportunity for a fresh start with many benefits. By downsizing you will save on costs associated with a larger home, have more cash flow, enjoy shared services, and added lifestyle changes. 

When you list your larger home with us our team can set out to help  find you a smaller condo or townhouse in the meantime. Email info@realtorslimited.com and read on for our five favourite downsized homes on the market now.

1. Increased Cash Flow and Lower Costs

Smaller living spaces usually are less expensive to maintain, plus after you sell your larger home you should have additional cash flow. You will save on the cost of everything from energy bills to maintenance costs and even reduced insurance. Your utility bills should be lower as you are servicing a smaller space. You may also save on split costs like a shared gardener or security guard when buying withing a community.

2. Shared Services 

Living in a condo or townhouse comes with many added amenities, of which the community owners, split the cost. Many condos in Barbados include a pool and garden spaces. Your monthly maintenance fees will be a small portion of the costs of maintaining the pool, garden, gated access or security guard services for example. Always ask what the monthly fees are before purchasing a condo so you can calculate your monthly costs. They will work out to be a lot more affordable that paying for each service on your own.

3. More Time

A smaller home means less time spent on household chores and keeping larger areas organized and clean. How will you enjoy your extra time? Why not go for a swim in the communities’ pool or go for a walk with your new neighbours.

4. Lifestyle changes

Living in a condo provides you with an added sense of security and community. With many neighbours in your area, you should never feel alone. The onsite amenities can provide you with new hobbies like tennis, golf, or simply a place to meet at the club house.
