As the cost of living continues to rise, an increasing number of Canadians are finding themselves priced out of the market. The reality that many seniors are coming to realize is that the only way to afford necessary senior services in the long run, while maintaining a comfortable standard of living, is to downsize their homes. While downsizing can be both emotionally and logistically overwhelming, the process can be more enjoyable than you think. When done correctly, your home downsize will help you generate extra wealth, aside from your home, while being cost and time-efficient.
At Alivio, we understand that downsizing your home takes ample time and effort. For this reason, we provide our clients with the most comprehensive and affordable home downsizing services. We take care of everything from start to finish - from decluttering and selling your belongings to preparing your home for sale/rent, packing everything for the new place, and more. Instead of hiring multiple services, coordinating all the details yourself (or trying to convince your adult children to do it), let Alivio streamline all the help. We take the burden off your shoulders by providing all the services you need for a stress-free and successful home downsize.
The process begins with a sit-down with one of our downsizing experts to thoroughly discuss your needs. Together a plan is formulated tailored to your specific circumstances and timelines.
Next, we start the decluttering service. We help you focus on the items that matter most for resettling into your new home. Then, belongings you no longer need or want are sorted for sale, donation, disposal, or family distribution.
Items of value are then photographed, cataloged, and loaded onto the online auction platform. Shoppers vary from the everyday consumer to high-end antique bidders guaranteeing that your items get their fair market value and maybe more with some healthy competition.
97% of our client's auction items sell, which historically covered up to 50% or more of their downsizing service fees! Talk about savings!
The remaining items are either donated locally or sustainably recycled so that your downsize has a minimal environmental impact and your belongings are given a second life.
Finally, we'll carefully pack and move your belongings to your new home, ensuring that they arrive safely and on time. Then we handle your unpacking and set up so you’re settled in and enjoying your new home in no time!
All the services are customizable to your specific needs and timelines.
Many believe home downsizing services are luxury services and they are in that you can sit back and relax while we take care of it all! BUT the affordability always seems to surprise our clients in the end. When weighing out the option of spending countless hours doing it yourself or putting the burden onto your adult children, it’s a no-brainer! Alivio Solution is a cost-effective solution to downsizing so that you can live comfortably and with confidence in today's economy.
