Reasons To Consider a Smaller Home

There is such a thing as having "too much house." When my parents died, I inherited their large home, and with it, their mortgage. I made the decision to sell my modest home and move into their large house with a large lot. That was three years ago. Looking back on the last three years, working on that house and yard is about all I've accomplished. If you're a homebody, that's fine. If you're a young person trying to launch a career, you don't need the headaches of a large property.

The website Becoming Minimalist offers "12 Reasons Why You'll Be Happier In a Smaller Home":

  • Smaller homes are easier to maintain
  • You spend less time decluttering
  • Smaller homes are less expensive
  • Living small means you go into less debt and less risk
  • Owning a smaller house is mentally freeing
  • Smaller homes have a smaller environmental impact
  • You free up more time (give serious thought to this one)
  • Smaller homes encourage family bonding
  • Downsizing your home forces you to remove baggage (give thought to this one, too)
  • Smaller homes lessen the temptation to accumulate
  • You're less obligated to decorate
  • Smaller homes are in a wider market to sell

Now For The Bad News

This listing at Realtor.com states the sale of this home is "contingent." According to Rocket Mortgage:

A property listed as contingent means the seller has accepted an offer, but they’ve chosen to keep the listing active in case certain contingencies aren’t met by the prospective buyer.

In the past, I've purchased homes that had been listed as contingent. It occasionally happens; the contingencies aren't met by the prospective buyer, and the contract falls through.

Waylon's Disclaimer

I am not a real estate agent, nor do I own this property. I don't know the owners or the listing agent. At the end of the day, I have absolutely no interest in this property. In the past, my investments have occasionally involved the purchase of income properties. From time to time a property in Grand Junction catches my attention. When that happens, it's my assumption the property may be of interest to you, maybe for a personal residence, or perhaps as an investment.
