10 Tips for Downsizing Your Home

"Moving is a physically, emotionally, and mentally exhausting event for many people, whether you're young or you're old," Snyder says. It's not often something you want to do by yourself. If you can't lean on your community for assistance, professionals such as Snyder can manage the process. You can also ask your real estate agent. "I've found movers, an online auction company to help sell furniture," says Jenny Jaffe, a real estate agent based in New York's Westchester County. "Leaning on your agent is really helpful." Coming full circle: Keep your spirits up with a good attitude. There's so much to look forward to about a downsize. With less space, you will have much less maintaining to do. In exchange for having less to clean and less to fix, you'll have more time and more money to spend on other parts of your life. Not a bad deal! Overwhelmingly, the experts interviewed for this article agree that those who downsize find themselves on an exciting and happy adventure, unburdened by physical possessions and home maintenance obligations. It's your chance to start fresh. "I would keep reminding yourself when you're feeling stressed to think of it as, this is my next phase," Jaffe says. "This is an opportunity to have a new change in life."
