Downsizing from a House to a Condo

Whether you’ve just retired, or you are looking to move closer to the beautiful Lake of the Ozarks, a condo is a great way to get a gorgeous lake view! There is no doubt that there are lots of perks to living in a condo at the Lake of the Ozarks. Isla Del Sol has some great amenities such as private island living, panoramic lakefront views, boat docks and PWC slips, dog walking areas, and low maintenance perks. However, some people are hesitant to move into a condo due to space restrictions. Don’t let space prevent you from living in a luxury condo at the Lake of the Ozarks! Isla Del Sol has put together some tips for downsizing from a house to a condo.

Start with the Garage

One of the biggest benefits of living in a condo is that you won’t have to do near as much maintenance as you do when you own a house. A lot of things you have in your garage are going to be unnecessarily when you live in a condo. Things such as snow shovels, ladders, and lawnmowers won’t be needed anymore.

Downsize Your Furniture

Furniture can take up a lot of space. People typically buy furniture that will fill up their living room. If your living room is on the larger side, you may need to downsize your living furniture for it to fit in your new luxury condo at the Lake of the Ozarks. This may be a good time to splurge and buy new furniture for a new look in your home. With the increasing popularity of facebook marketplace groups, selling your old furniture can be a breeze. You can downsize and still get some extra money from your furniture. Plus, it will be one less thing you will need to move.


Often, you don't have to downsize as much as you think you would. Sometimes the issue is organization. Consider purchasing some storage bins and organize your things into categories. This can help you save space and it will make it easier to move.

Use it or Lose it! 

When you start packing, you should ask yourself, "Have I used this item in the last year?" If the answer is no, chances are you don't need that item anymore. It easy to hang onto things over the years that are just not necessary. Your kitchen is a great place to start. Kitchen gadgets can take up a lot of space. Do you really need 3 gadgets that do virtually the same thing? Once you get rid of unnecessary kitchen items, your kitchen will be so much more organized! You won't regret getting rid of a few gadgets when you open your cabinets and everything is clean and organized!

Downsizing and getting rid of your things can be stressful. However, with a plan and some organization tips and tricks, it doesn't have to be! Our luxury condos at Lake of the Ozarks feature condos that are on average 1300 square feet so you might not need to downsize as much you think. When you are ready to downsize and buy a condo at Lake of the Ozarks, contact Isla Del Sol and we would be more than happy to show you around our private island!
