Where and when do I start?
Lifestyle changes are a natural cycle of life. At some point, we all come to the crossroads where our current lifestyle just doesn't seem to fit anymore. Maybe you're an empty nester, retired or semi-retired.
It is not uncommon to feel pressured to downsize. Our children may want us to move closer, or our spouses may be tired of keeping up with all the home maintenance. Perhaps your recreational activities have changed and you want to be closer to the amenities supporting that.
Downsizing requires a great deal of advance planning with your family, your finances and your real estate advisor. It's okay to spend a lot of time thinking about the process. Coming to terms with change and its challenges can be tough.
