When you retire, there are a few things you need to do differently to live the carefree, smooth life you want in the golden years. One thing that you need to do is downsize and rid your home of some of your possessions, if you are relocating. That’s usually easier said than done, but with the 10 steps here implemented into your plans, you can easily downsize without worry.
- Before moving anywhere, you should first consider where you want to be and what you want to do (or not do) while enjoying retirement.
- To determine how much square footage you really need, it helps to first think about your current space and how it’s being used.
- Remember: downsizing doesn’t have to mean downgrading. Even if you’re buying a smaller home, it won’t necessarily cost less than your current place.
