Reasons to Downsize

Don't Need All That Space

Your house may have served you well, but you may no longer need all that space. This often happens when children grow up and move out. Bigger the house, the bigger the responsibility. If big part of your home is no longer used, it may be a time to move on. 

Save Money

Don't pay for space you don't use. Mortgage, property tax, insurance, maintenance, all add up. Selling the big house and buying a smaller place could save siginificant amount of money. You could also get a good amount proceed from the sale. If you are retired on a fixed income, downsizing makes even more sense. 

Free Up Your Time
