HOMEOWNER TIPS | THERE’S AN EMOTIONAL SIDE TO DOWNSIZING YOUR HOME.
People downsize for a variety of reasons, from the “empty nest” syndrome, to convenience or hardship. Here are a few things to consider as you contemplate moving to a smaller home:
These are among the main barriers to downsizing. Equally, deciding on where to move, and what style will best suit, can be just as daunting.
