If you are over the age of 65 and have been longing for a different home, more money, or less stress, but think you’re too old to downsize, think again. The number of healthy and active people in their 50s, 60s, and older has steadily increased in the past few generations — and naturally, so has the number of people buying homes. If you’re ready to downsize but want to skip the stress, check out these handy tips.

Set a home-buying budget


It’s important to know what you can afford to spend on your downsized home. Although your mortgage will probably be cheaper since you are purchasing a smaller place, you will still have to invest money into your previous home until it sells.

Have a plan for moving day




One mistake a lot of seniors make when downsizing is making a plan for every leg of the journey — except moving day itself. Take a look at these resources to make sure you have a plan for every last detail.

Downsizing your home is a huge and stressful project for anyone, and seniors are no exception. By doing some proactive planning and asking for help when you need it, it’s possible to make big changes with minimal hassle.
