If You’re Downsizing

A crucial thing to remember when you’re downsizing is that you’re also downsizing your belongings. Everything that fit into your three-story brick home may not work in your new one bedroom condo–or the new lifestyle it will bring. Now’s a great time to clean out any unnecessary knickknacks and let go of bulky old furniture.

If You’re Upsizing

Upsizing usually brings with it some really exciting life changes. When you’re selling to move to a larger house, make sure you’re investing in a property that will not just suit your current life, but also fits any future plans you have.
