Did you know that there are upsides to downsizing? If you’re considering the move, we’ve got several resources and reasons for you to go ahead and commit to the process. The Cottages Collection at Brier Creek Country is the perfect spot for townhome-style living that offers single-level homes in a convenient Raleigh location. This low-maintenance, luxurious collection by Toll Brothers is something that you don’t want to miss out on.
Upsides to Downsizing
You’ll Get a Fresh Start
In the process of downsizing, you’ll get a chance to experience the saying, “out with the old and in with the new.” Downsizing offers a chance to begin a new experience in a different spot. You’ll carry the memories of your past space with you but can leave all of the extra things behind.
Aside from a brand new home, the Cottages Collection also has incredible amenities that include a Clubhouse with a pool, fire pit, and membership discounts to the Brier Creek Country Club.
You Won’t Have To Manage as Much Stuff
Anything that you don’t have to have will stay behind during a downsizing move. If you find yourself continually adding things to storage that you never see again, downsizing might be the right option for you. It’s time to say goodbye to all of the unneeded belongings that are crowding your current space.
The Cottages Collection features two or three bedroom townhomes with hardwood flooring throughout most of the home. You’ll still have plenty of space to work with without all of the things that don’t add real value to your life.
You’ll Have Less to Clean
How many times have you found yourself complaining about how long it takes to clean your home? When downsizing, you’ll most likely cut that time in half so that you can use those minutes elsewhere in your busy day.
You’ll Save Money
Less space to heat and cool means lower energy and utility bills. When moving to a smaller home, people usually find that they spend less on maintenance as well. Putting more money in your pocket is something that can never be complained about.
You’ll Have More Time
Do you have a hobby that you’ve been wanting to spend more time on? How about the desire to smart a small business from your home? Or maybe you want to use extra time just to relax. In downsizing, you’ll have a lot more time to take care of yourself in order to do more of what makes you happy.
The homeowner’s Association at the Cottages Collection takes care of lawn maintenance for you, giving you less to worry about.
With a smaller home, you’ll have a lot less to keep up with in the long run.
