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!
