Downsizing is a big step for a lot of seniors and, for many, it can be a hard change to make. To help make the transition easier, I asked real estate agents to share their best tips for how to handle this process. Read on below to see what they had to say.
Take an inventory of your current space
“My top tip for clients looking to downsize is not only take inventory of your home and the items you want to keep, but to also take an inventory of the space you actually use.
For example, if you have a formal dining area but never use it, or perhaps have multiple spare bedrooms that don't see guests, then you can remove these items from your search in your next home—even if it means letting go of a special piece of furniture.”
