Downsizing in Omaha

Downsizing in OmahaWhen you think on the word downsizing in Omaha, you might think of the movie filmed in Omaha. Omaha Magazine described the movie this way: “Alexander Payne’s new tragicomedy Downsizing imagines the fate of an overpopulated world hanging in the balance due to depleted natural resources. When scientists find a way to miniaturize humans, adventurous souls choose going small as an act of conservation or exploitation. Matt Damon plays Paul, an average Omaha man whose pioneering micro-me experiences range from surreal to sublime.”
The downsizing I’m thinking of is not the downsizing where management wants to shrink a company by laying off workers. No, I’m thinking of downsizing, where retirees want to shrink their living quarters to something smaller by selling their house.  What hold many retirees back? It could be the myths we have about downsizing in Omaha.

 5 Myths of Downsizing in Omaha for retirees:

  1. Downsizing Your Home for Retirement is All About Saving Money. Wrong! You can save money with a smaller house. There is less to maintain for example. However, retirees find they have more time to spend on activities they had passed on when they were working. More time for gardening, taking up painting or a new hobby, more time with one’s spouse, more time for reading a good book, more time for just walking.
  2. Downsizing Means You’ll Be Cramped for Space. Wrong! The majority of retirees report that they don’t really need as much space as they used to. If you are like me, you hardly ever use the formal dining room or guest bedroom. I suspect, many of us even have a room just filled with stuff.
  3. Downsizing Means Giving Up Your Favorite Belongings. Again, wrong! “Thinking about downsizing often comes hand-in-hand with the idea of giving up treasured family heirlooms. But many retirees are surprised to discover a newfound sense of freedom after keeping their favorite belongings and selling or giving away the rest.” As hard as it is to believe, Millennials just don’t value family heirlooms or even furniture that lasts a long time.

  1. You Love Your House Too Much to Downsize. Wrong! About a third choose not to leave their home. The rest find a new freedom. They are free to move to the country away from the traffic and noise; others are free to live downtown where they can walk everywhere. Some, now, have the freedom to try another country.
  2. Downsizing Your Home Is a Major Hassle. Wrong, wrong, wrong! This may be the most common myth of all. What’s holding many retirees back from downsizing is the fear of all the time and trouble involved in selling a house.
