Anytime you move into a new home, you will be faced with challenges. But, moving to a smaller house is even more of a difficult adjustment. It is a lifestyle change, essentially.
There is a bright side to downsizing, though. Once you get over the shock, you will come to realize that life is much simpler with less things and less space. Who can resist less cleaning? In a smaller home, you will have much more time to simply enjoy life!
But, how, you ask, do you make this move as painless as possible? Just follow these steps.
When it comes to selling a home, first impressions are eve
rything. Just like you wouldn’t go see a movie if
the previews were bad, you can’t expect someone to buy
a home that epitomizes the B-list of real estate.

The experts have spoken. Economists and housing analysts seem to agree that home prices will rise more slowly in 2015 when compared to 2016. This is the national forecast, and the same kind of prediction has been offered for cities and metro areas across the country.
But Tacoma, Washington might be a different story. According to one team of economists, home prices in Tacoma could rise as much over the next year as they did in the last 12 months — or even more.
Home prices in the Seattle metro area rose steadily in 2014. According to a leading indicator, house values climbed more than 6% over the last year.
But you probably shouldn’t expect that kind of appreciation over the next 12 months. Housing economists have forecast that Seattle home prices would rise by about 4.5% to 5% over the next year. That’s a decent level of appreciation, but it’s less than last year.
Inheriting a home may seem like a nice idea from the out set, but that is not always the case.Often, these homes are in desperate need of improvement and if you’re not in the financial or physical position to handle these repairs, a blessing can quickly turn into a curse. In this instance,if you don’t want to deal with the rigors of the real estate market, you can sell your house for cash.This option frees you of the burden you’ve been presented with and allows you to walk away with money to fulfill other obligations.

The inspection of a home is apart of the traditional process of selling. Buyers need confidence before committing to a thirty-year mortgage, so they want to know what kinds of repairs they’re going to be facing. A lot of the time, even the homeowner is not aware of all of the things that need to be done to make their home sell-able. In the case where they need to sell fast, they may not have time to wait on an inspection and then complete the demands of the buyer. The best alternative to this issue is to sell, as is, for cash.
