DOWNSIZING: What Size Home Do You Need?


~Ask Cathy~

Q. I am interested in downsizing but how do I decide what size home I really need? 

A. One of the best ways to decide how much space you'll really need in your next home is by assessing how you are using your current home. Take an honest look at how many rooms you really use now. I'll bet many of the "must have" rooms aren't used that much.  Formal dining rooms come to mind, for starters. How many bedrooms do you really need/use?
