searching, selling, decluttering, moving

Vanessa, a long time Tauranga local, project manager and real estate professional specialises in helping clients who are downsizing by offering additional information and services to minimise the stress of selling and moving.

Search - rightsize your home

Eventually there comes a time when children have left home and golf and travel beckons. The family home becomes too large and new adventures are afoot. If you are ready to downsize or retire then I have the experience to help; whether it is to a smaller home in one of Tauranga's popular retirement suburbs or moving to one of the many lifestyle villages in our region.

Our search process is designed to give you the information to make an informed decision on your next move. It will also help you to understand new terms associated with village life such as "License to Occupy" and "Deferred Management Fee".

During this time we can help to put a move plan in place. It is never too soon to start to declutter!

decluttering - how to fit into you new home

It is easy to collect a lifetime of "valuable" items. When moving to a smaller home serious consideration needs to be made about what items you wish to take with you.

If you are decluttering by yourself then the best way is to start small, with a cupboard or bookcase and then move up from there. One successful approach is to put your items into four groups:
1. Items that you wish to keep
2. Items that you wish to sell
3. Items that you wish to give away and donate
4. Items to be thrown away

If it all seems too much then there are several decluttering/downsizing companies in Tauranga then we can introduce you to.
