Retirement Village Managers

In 2013, Clear Space was the first business in Adelaide to offer a complete, end-to-end, home downsizing service – so not just planning and managing the move, but providing ongoing support and hands-on help throughout the move.

When someone makes the decision to move out of their large, family home they start to look for a suitable retirement village and get excited when one is found. But once they get back home, and look around, it’s at this point that they start to doubt the move and often don’t proceed. This is because, they:

  • live alone,
  • just don’t know here to start,
  • often don’t have the required physical or emotional strength,
  • struggle with decision making and letting go of their items,
  • become overwhelmed with what’s required to deal with a lifetime of possessions & belongings,
  • need help deciding how to best use the smaller space in their new home,
  • don’t have family or any one to help them.

But after a brief, non judgemental chat with Mick, they feel back in control and confident with the move.

Once they pay a deposit for their new home, typically they have 3 months to move in. The plan usually looks like this – the first month we help get the the home ready for sale as required, the second month is for the agent to have open inspections and get a contract and the final month, the settlement period, is when most of the work happens.

The first downsize we did was in 2014 after becoming the preferred service provider for Living Choice Fullarton, arguably Adelaide’s most prestige retirement living complex at the time.

Over a three year period, Clear Space moved residents in to over 110 of their apartments from a total of 150. It was over this time that Clear Space developed it’s reputation as being a trusted, reliable and high quality service provider. Over the past 10 years, we have helped people move in to most of the retirement villages all over Adelaide.

So if your a Village Manager, Clear Space can provide a value-add service that helps people overcome their reluctance to move.
