Tips & Resources - Thinking about downsizing?

The decision to downsize is far more than just the sale of the “big” house and a move to a smaller living space.  It is a move fraught with future-altering decisions and emotional turmoil, often made without the help of a deceased or incapacitated spouse and out-of-state children. While every other sale and purchase has been a move “up” the ladder: bigger, better, closer to kid’s schools and more amenities, this move is letting go.  Giving up of possessions, memories, and the familiar is often the hardest part of the downsize transition.

DownSize Columbus is Central Ohio’s premier seminar to assist the downsizing homeowner. Experts in the five major areas of transition – Residential, Emotional, Legal, Medical and Financial – all gather in one space to give the consumer valuable advice, resources and trusted partners to guide through this challenging transition.
