We’ve all heard the saying before, bigger is better, but is that always the case? Well, when it comes to the size of your home, the reality is more complicated. The size of an average single-family home has increased to more than 2,500 square feet, which is 2½ times as big as it was immediately after World War II! Larger homes require more work and upkeep and the space encourages us to fill them with things we don’t need. Not to mention how much more expensive they are. That’s precisely why some people are rethinking these ideas and are looking to downsize to a smaller home.
Deciding to move you and your family into a home with less space should not be made lightly. Take your time to think over every aspect of the move because it’s not simply a question of storage space. Downsizing means changing your lifestyle entirely. Yet the benefits can be well worth it if you do it right. With the right planning and soul-searching.
If you think that downsizing sounds right for you at this time in your life, continue reading the accompanying guide. It contains key information that can help you with the perfect move.
