Downsizing to a New DFW Home in 2023

Thinking about downsizing to a new DFW home this year? Ladera pairs the luxury of a single-family home with the low-maintenance features 55+ homebuyers desire most. Let us show you how downsizing can help you finally achieve the lock-and-leave lifestyle of your dreams!

The Perks of Downsizing

Whether your kids have left the nest or you’re preparing for retirement, you may suddenly find you no longer need the space you have in your current home. Maintaining a larger home – from cleaning unused rooms to mowing a large backyard and taking care of a pool – is a hassle you shouldn’t have to deal with in this exciting phase of life, and paying others to maintain it for you can also take away from your budget for traveling or exploring new hobbies.

This is where the many benefits of downsizing to a right-sized DFW home can not only improve your lifestyle but also help your wallet.

Preparing to Downsize

If you think downsizing is the best fit for you, the next step is to take inventory of your current belongings to figure out how much space you will need to live comfortably in your next home.

Can you part ways with old clothes, furniture and other possessions to make the move to a smaller home more manageable? Perhaps you don’t need four or five bedrooms but still want space for when the grandkids come to visit?

Ladera Texas designs semi-custom DFW homes with the 55+ homebuyer in mind. With 18+ floorplans to choose from and more than 1,000 personalization options available, you’ll be able to find a home with the ideal amount of space without sacrificing the privacy and convenience of single-family living.

Ladera’s luxurious floorplans include desirable design features such as wide-open layouts with dramatic ceilings, energy-efficient details and the “living line,” efficient living at its best with the owner’s bedroom leading to the primary bathroom, walk-in closet and ending at the utility room. There are floorplans for buyers who want to keep their large furniture and for buyers who still desire a loft space for their grandchildren.

Best of all, Ladera homes are located in gated 55+ communities that provide security, take care of front yard mowing and showcase exciting amenities steps from your front door!
