Home Downsizing Services in Toronto

Solutions for Downsizers in the GTA or Southern Ontario

We all know of someone who stayed in their family home too long. Maybe it was your aunt, your grandparent, your neighbour—maybe even your mom or dad.

The sad truth is, downsizing for them may have been an unhappy experience because they most likely were forced into a senior’s community or assisted living.

At Transitions, we believe you have the freedom to make a different choice.

We Believe

You deserve the best third age possible.

We Believe

This is truly your time to shine after years or decades of putting everyone else’s needs ahead of yours.

We Believe

Downsizing doesn’t have to mean
“small-sizing” or downgrading.

We prefer to call downsizing “rightsizing.” This means finding the right new home, in the right community, that aligns with your vision for the third age of your life—both now and in the future.

When downsizing’s done right, you’ll take advantage of the equity you’ve built in your current home to fund a new active, healthy lifestyle of your choosing.

But Making the Leap Isn’t Easy

Deciding to take the next step in your life and to transition out of the home you’ve lived in for years can be emotionally and logistically challenging. We know it ourselves from our own first-hand experience.

Many of our clients come to us for help because they feel their current home isn’t quite right anymore. 

Do any of these statements describe your situation?

"We no longer love our home and know it's time to move, but all the stuff we have is holding us back from downsizing."

When our clients come to us for downsizing help, often they’re not sure what to do about their home, or they’re paralyzed by a fear of change. They haven’t envisioned where they’d ideally like to live or what they want to do in the next part of their life. They don’t know what steps to take. They can’t even imagine where to start.

Understandably, most of us feel attached to the home we’ve lived in for decades, often with family or other loved ones. The thought of sorting through a lifetime’s worth of mementos and getting rid of accumulated possessions is sometimes more than we can handle. With so much to consider, it’s no wonder many of our clients feel overwhelmed and stuck in their current situation.
