4 ways empty nesters enhance their quality of life as they downsize  

Many East Vancouver homeowners are empty nesters. Some will take advantage of their BC homeowner assessments and sell their single family home in the 2018 Vancouver housing market. The savvy sellers will call on Faith Zhou, real estate expert at Optim Pacific Realty https://oprealty.ca to benefit from her 17 years of experience serving the community’s housing market and delivering record breaking sales results.


Where will they go? How can downsizing help them upscale their life plans?


At Optim Pacific Realty, Faith Zhou and her team have tracked some trends. She’s seen empty nesters in neighbourhoods such as Killarney, Renfrew, Joyce – Collingwood, Grandview, and Vancouver South choose to downsize and find both comfort and new freedom.  Some move to apartments, condos, and townhouses nearby and others into single family homes in communities such as the Fraser Valley, the Sunshine Coast and Vancouver Island.  


Here are 4 ways that Faith Zhou at Optim Pacific Realty has seen your empty nester neighbours in East Vancouver who chose to sell their homes in today’s Vancouver housing market, downsize their costs and increase their quality of life.  Expect to enjoy these too:


1.You’ll have extra money to follow your interests

Be free to travel, take courses or splurge on your hobbies.  You’ll have more to spend on living your life instead of home and yard maintenance.


2. You gain time to enjoy with friends and family

Imagine, now having time to invest in meeting new and established friends for activities that you couldn’t easily do before because your priorities were on your children and grandchildren’s needs.


3. You find new meaning in your work

Start a new venture? Revisit your dream or dedicate yourself more deeply to an ongoing career? You’ll have new energy as you focus on purpose and satisfaction of your work or community contribution.


4. You get to rediscover your identity

As an empty nester who has successfully downsized, you can look beyond your role as devoted parent and caregiver and rediscover your personal passions and goals.


How will you use the new life space that downsizing your home will give you?
