Baby boomers have been especially active in purchasing real estate over the past few years. A study by AARP said as baby boomers head towards retirement, many decide to invest in new homes rather than remain in their older property. Maintaining a newer home is significantly cheaper, so they can reduce the yearly upkeep of their home and enjoy their retirement. Because many baby boomers choose to buy a smaller home, there is less space to store the items that they have accumulated over the years. Renting a self storage unit will help with the transition from a larger home to a smaller one.
Why baby boomers choose to downsize
Recent retirees often look to live in smaller spaces that are easy to maintain and clean. These home buyers will opt for a smaller home than the one they may have occupied for many years. Choosing to live in a smaller, newer house allows many people to enjoy their retirement with little worry about maintaining the home for years to come.
The benefits of self storage
Many baby boomers have years worth of furniture and belongings they have accumulated at their previous, larger homes. Often, these items have significance to their owners and need to placed in self storage for future use or to one day be passed down. Grandparents will be able to help their grandchildren save money when they move out on their own by passing on furniture. A self storage unit can safely store these items until that time comes.
Some baby boomers have tools and vehicles they can’t take with them to a smaller home or apartment. Self storage units come in an array of sizes, some large enough to store a small vehicle. Whatever your needs, you will be able to find a self storage unit to fulfill them. You can enjoy your retirement without having to constantly search for more space to store items in your home.
