Heck… you’re probably thinking of downsizing at this point…
It certainly would be easier to keep a smaller home clean and tidy (not to mention the repairs). And what do you need such a big home for anyways? It’s turning out to be more work than it’s worth.
We totally understand.

Either way, here are some important steps for getting ready to downsize…
1. Have a Garage Sale — Why not make some money from all that extra stuff that “needs to go” anyway? Some people move everything out to their garage, and some just allow people to walk through their home and make offers on whatever they’d like. Go with whichever you are most comfortable with.
2. Consider How Much Space You’ll Have — Downsizing obviously means less space, which means getting rid of enough stuff so that your new home isn’t crowded. Think in terms of how many rooms you’ll have to determine what to keep and what you should get rid of.
3. Invite Family To Help — If there are family members or friends that are willing to help you sell or move stuff (or who might take some of it off your hands!), definitely reach out to them. That will make downsizing much easier and more enjoyable.
