Downsizing? Isn't That For Old Folks?

And How Might These Changes Affect Your Home?


Downsizing might be the answer. If you are seeking to focus on a new way of living, it might be time to consider a new residence.


Take Inventory: What Do You Really Need in a Home?


For many folks seeking a lifestyle change, finding a low-maintenance home in a good location is key.



A desirable location varies considerably among homeowners. Some may prefer an urban location near airports for easy travel and access to big-city amenities, while others may prefer the solitude of a country cottage.


Townhomes or condominiums present great opportunities for a low-maintenance lifestyle while retirees might consider 55-plus active communities to provide security, social events, and carefree living.


Consider Your Equity


If you have owned your home for a while, you may have significant equity in the property. Using your equity to buy a smaller home with a smaller payment can provide stability and more financial freedom.
