Planning your Home Downsizing

If you believe the time is right and downsizing makes sense for you and your family, here are some steps to simplify the process:

Get everyone on the same page

If you share your home with anyone else, make sure they understand the goals and practicalities of downsizing. A little conversation can prevent a lot of fights later.

Make everything multipurpose

The best way to prevent clutter is to ensure every space and item in your home can serve more than one purpose. Buy furniture with added storage space or use a fold-away desk to turn your living room into a home office.

Talk to a professional

Realtors can help you make the most informed decision when it comes to finding the smaller house of your dreams. They also can make it easier to know you’re getting the most value out of your existing home when you put it on the market.
