Downsize in Style

Downsizing into a smaller home or choosing a second home that’s designed for low maintenance and fuss is not only a smart financial choice, it’s smart for living large. We love this trend because, frankly, it makes people happy. With communities offering shared lake or river access, stunning outdoor entertainment spaces, golf courses, gyms, and zero-stress maintenance, we’ve put smiles on lots of faces. We would love to help you find a home that can free you to enjoy all the adventure the Flathead has to offer.

What makes a great Downsize?

Downsizing is about freedom. Here here are the four essentials we recommend for living large with a downsize.


Community Matters

Many downsizes are part of a community offering shared indoor and outdoor entertainment features, adjoining golf courses, lake access, as well as social events to bring people together.


Free Your Time

Many upscale downsizes include lawn and exterior home maintenance, so you can spend free time doing what you love. A good downsize is built to minimize home maintenance tasks.


Play Rejuvenates!

Look for onsite or close proximity to recreational opportunities like tennis courts, pools, golf, skiing, boating, fishing, bicycling, and walking or hiking paths.


Convience is Key

Proximity to health care, shopping, airports, and developed transportation routes not only makes life easier, it allows you more free time to enjoy what you love.
