If you're looking to sell your home quickly in Arizona, we've got some tips for you.
Today I’m going to be discussing what you should be looking for when you’re downsizing from your current home and looking to buy a new one.

Location is key, because it can be a huge asset to your property’s value. Check out the school districts, taxes, and access to major highways before you make an offer, as well as the shopping and dining options in the area.

Townhomes and condos are great alternatives if you don’t want to deal with maintenance. However, keep in mind that you may have to pay some maintenance fees and other associated costs.

If you’re looking to move into a smaller space for retirement, think ahead as to what kind of floor plan you want. A 2 story home may not be as beneficial for you in the coming years because of the stairs. If a 2 story is your only option, look for a home with a master suite on the main floor.

Start preparing for your move by measuring your furniture. One of the things we don’t think about when downsizing is how our current furniture will fit in our new space. You don’t want a room to feel overstuffed or cramped. Sell your extra large pieces in a consignment store, and use the money to buy something newer and smaller.

If you have any questions for me, or if you’re thinking about downsizing yourself, give me a call or send me an email. I look forward to hearing from you!
