How to Downsize Your Home Without Losing Your Mind

Whether you're moving from a palatial estate to a downtown apartment or you're moving in with a significant other, downsizing is in order. Moving from a large home full of your stuff to a smaller space can be tricky, and while it's easy to say "just get rid of your extra stuff," doing it is much harder. Here's how to make the transition as smooth as possible. Over the past few years, many people have downsized not because they want to, but because the housing market crashed. Others (myself included) opt to live in a smaller space because it's in a desirable neighborhood, close to work, or downtown near amenities. The two biggest cost concerns when looking for a place to live are size and loc

The holiday season from November through January is often considered the worst time to put a home on the market. While the thought of selling your home during the winter months may dampen your holiday spirit, the season does have its advantages: holiday buyers tend to be more serious and competition is less fierce with fewer homes being actively marketed.

A home sale by owner option sounds like it could be a pretty sweet deal for the seller. After all, if you're doing the work, you'll walk away with the most money, right? Well, maybe not ...
