If you find yourself as an empty-nester or even in a tight financial situation, downsizing your Jacksonville home may be the solution. However, effectively downsizing is going to require some tough decisions, hard work, and plenty of time. Here are five tricks to make the process a little smoother.
1. Determine Your Needs
Before you begin throwing items away, determine what you absolutely need in your new home. For example, if you are moving from a six-bedroom home to a three-bedroom home, you need to keep a minimum of three bedroom sets. If you are moving to a home with a much smaller dining room, you may need to sell your current dining room table and purchase a table that better fits the new space.
2. Focus on One Room at a Time
