Downsizing your home

It may seem like just yesterday that you bought your first home and planted roots. But here you are at this stage of life – knowing in your heart that it’s time to make a change. Downsizing your home makes sense: you’ve worked hard, planned, saved, and now moving into a smaller home will only enhance your lifestyle options from this point on.

When you first get to the point that you realize downsizing makes sense, you’re just continuing to do what you’ve always done – plan well. Seeking advice is a wise move too, especially considering an important life decision like selling your home and buying a new home that will suit the next chapter of your life.

Downsizing your home can be an exciting change – a time for much needed renewal and freedom from all the maintenance a larger home brings.

Whether you’re simply looking for less square footage, a condo with less maintenance, a fresh start, or just a smaller version of your current home, John Goodman Real Estate is a wise and trusted source to help find your dream-downsized-home. Our knowledge and experience are key factors in being effective in helping our clients make a wise decision.

We can identify with your needs, and therefore help you to make an informed decision, instead of an uninformed guess.

Our family team of professionally licensed Realtors are experienced and knowledgeable in finding a home for you to downsize comfortably.

As a first-time home buyer, John's guidance through this process was excellent. He provided support every step of the process and helped me know what do, when to do it, and, most importantly, why I was doing it. He was very responsive to my calls and/or texts, and helped push the entire process along in a timely manner. I appreciate all of John's help and am excited to be moving into my new home!
John helped me sell my house in Michigan while I was living out of state. Selling a home can be stressful and challenging, especially remotely. After working with another realtor that wasn't able to help us market and sell our home effectively, we were referred to John. John did a great job and I'd highly recommend anyone looking to sell their home with a high touch agent that cares.
It was an absolute pleasure working with Jeremy. He showed a tremendous amount of dedication and focus in looking out for my best interests. He was incredibly knowledgeable about every house we saw – going above and beyond to get me as much information as possible. I appreciated the level of clear communication throughout the entire process, and would recommend him 100 times over for anyone looking for help.
Working with Sara was a pleasure! Despite being in a down market, we not only landed in our dream home, but also sold our previous home without any issues! She was always available for all of our questions, including one-off requests. We felt like we were working with an old friend.
John is a highly qualified and noble person who will take care of you and any of your real estate needs. John went above and beyond in purchasing my first ever home in Livonia, MI. He is extremely attentive, informative, and lets you think for yourself while making such a huge financial decision without being pushy.
John listed our home in Tanglewood. After that, he took complete control of the whole process. We did not have to worry about a thing. He kept us updated whenever anything arose. I would highly recommend John to anyone who needs the services of a realtor.
Jeremy Goodman has gone “over and above the call” to make selling our home as seamless as possible. Not a single question or request went unanswered – even those that didn’t fall within his responsibilities. We cannot say enough about his professionalism, respect, timeliness in answering questions, knowledge of the process, and overall genuine concern for our level of comfort throughout.
Sara was the most amazing person we could have had in our corner in buying a house. We are first time home owners and had never had experience with any of the process. Sara walked us through everything step by step and had no problem dealing with all of our questions. She was patient, kind, courteous, knowledgeable, and made sure we found a home that met all our wishes.
