Own a bigger property than you need? Struggling to keep up with the maintenance?
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.

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 you have to get rid of anyway? You don’t necessarily have to move everything out to your garage either. You could just allow people to walk through your home and make offers on whatever they like.
2. Consider How Much Space You’ll Have — You’re going to have less space when you downsize, which means you’re going to get need of enough stuff so that you’re new home isn’t crowded. Think in terms of how many rooms you’ll have to determine what you should keep and what you should get rid of.
3. Invite Family To Help — If you have family members or friends that are willing to help you sell or move your stuff, definitely reach out to them. That will make downsizing much easier and more enjoyable.
