Downsizing is more than just selling your house. It is an opportunity to simplify your lifestyle and focus on what matters. People often find the thought of moving out of a home they have lived in for decades overwhelming. Whether you are moving from a large home to a smaller bungalow or condo, or from a condo to a retirement home or care facility, you want to know about today's real estate market. In a free one-hour lecture and one-hour Q&A, learn the facts you need to sell a home in today’s market and the steps you can take to make the downsizing process easier. Whether you are planning to sell this month or in a few years, do your homework now and be prepared.
