The size of your new home when downsizing depends on your specific needs and lifestyle. However, most people downsize by at least 20-30% from their current home.
If your home is 3,500 Sq Ft, you may consider 2,450-2,800 Sq Ft home. Make sure you choose a home with minimal stairs or ensure the primary bedroom and laundry room are on the main floor.
Consider if you need a home for storage or if you plan on putting items in storage.
