Did you know that the size of an average single-family home has increased to more than 2,500 square feet or 2 ½ times as big as it was right after World War II? Homeowners have long been convinced that living in as much space as possible is always better, but the reality is more complicated than that.
There are many good reasons for downsizing into a smaller home, including:
- Cutting the amount of clutter in your life
- Your children may be moving out to start college
- You would spend less time cleaning the house and maintaining the yard
- Saving money by lowering your mortgage payments
