How homeowners win when they downsize
Downsizing has long been a popular option when homeowners reach retirement age. But there are plenty of other life changes that could make downsizing worthwhile.
Homeowners who have experienced a change in their lives or no longer feel like their house fits their needs may benefit from downsizing too.
U.S. News explains: “Downsizing is somewhat common among older people and retirees who no longer have children living at home. But these days, younger people are also looking to downsize to save money on housing . . .”
And when inflation has made most things significantly more expensive, saving money where you can offer a lot of appeal. So, if you’re thinking about ways to budget differently, it could be worthwhile to take your home into consideration.
“A smaller home typically means lower bills and less upkeep. Then there’s the potential windfall that comes from selling your larger home and buying something smaller.”
That windfall is thanks to your home equity. If you’ve been in your house for a while, odds are you’ve developed a considerable amount of equity.
