Why is it called "Right-Sizing?"

By Paul Bielinski

Sometimes you get to a point in your life when your home feels too big to live in or too much to take care of. A lot of people call the next step “downsizing.” We like to call it rightsizing. Here are the answers to some common questions we get about rightsizing.


It’s all subjective. You need to determine the timing yourself. However, there are questions you can answer to figure out if it’s the right time.

  • Are there areas of your home that are rarely used or go completely unused?
  • Is home maintenance becoming a nuisance or troublesome?
  • Are physical issues making living in your current home more difficult?

If the answer to any one or more of these questions is yes, then the right time might be now.


We see more and more homeowners rightsizing every year as baby boomers become empty nesters and either have retired or are looking at retirement in the near future. These lifestyle changes have a direct correlation to new housing needs, especially for rightsizing.


Rightsizing is relative. For some it means moving from a two-story home to a ranch. To others it means moving out of their existing home and into a condominium. Whatever the need, we have a solution. We offer ranch homes that range from 1,400 to almost 2,400 square feet. We also offer both ranch duplex and detached condominiums.

The one common theme we see among rightsizers is the finishes. Most everyone looking to rightsize wants all the bells and whistles. Whether or not they had those special finishes in their previous home, they certainly don’t want to go without them now, and we can definitely deliver that!


Our New Home Consultants are knowledgeable about each of the more than 50 customizable floor plans we offer. All you have to do is tell them what’s important to your lifestyle and they’ll find the plan that works for you and is within your budget. Our interior designer will assist with making the right selections so your new home reflects your unique personality.

  • When we rightsized from our home of 43 years to a Bielinski Condo in Bay Pointe, our New Home Consultant answered all of our questions and communicated with us the entire way. We’re fully enjoying our beautiful new home and the condo community.
    John and Jean Jones
  • I’ve been so impressed and completely satisfied with the entire Bielinski building experience. From the initial sale and throughout the construction process I have appreciated Bielinski’s professionalism, craftsmanship, and follow-through.
    Heidi Hamilton
  • We are extremely happy with our new Bielinski Condo. It’s well-built and full of all the features we wanted in our home.
    Deborah and Brian Blackney
  • We chose Bielinski because they are a family-owned business and have been building in the Pewaukee area for a long time. The Clemont floor plan is just perfect for all of our family events and Packer parties.
    Bob and Darla Landgren
  • We couldn’t be happier with our new home! The entire process was fantastic. Everyone was so responsive and quick to help. Bielinski’s knowledge of the industry was invaluable. We recommend Bielinski to anyone looking for their next home.
    Mike and Kristin Smith
  • We had a really good experience with Bielinski from start to finish. Everyone was responsive and reliable. Now we are enjoying life in our new home.
    Peter Holzwart and Therese Gaynor-Holzwart
  • Once I got settled in, I knew I was exactly where I belong. Without Bielinski’s knowledge and communication, I would still be questioning whether I should build at all. Thanks to the entire team that made this all possible.

  • We have just purchased our third Bielinski Home in the last 22 years, a Bielinski condo. We have found that Bielinski Homes builds quality homes for fair prices. The craftsmanship of construction and finishing is exceptional, plus they make the buying and building process easy with great customer experience. We would strongly recommend a Bielinski Home.
    Jerald and Jeanne Filut
  • We absolutely loved working with Bielinski Homes — the kindness and knowledge they shared sold us on wanting to move to our new neighborhood. We were worried about moving. But we had no doubts in our minds after speaking with our New Home Consultant about the community and the neighbors. We couldn’t be happier with our new home and new neighborhood.
