Upsizing, Downsizing, and Resizing what does it mean and how to make the choice.

We have all heard of at least one of these terms when it comes to owning a home but sometimes it doesn’t enter our minds until necessity causes us to put it front and center. There are similarities in all three choices but differences in the decision to choose one over the other.  Although you may think you might only make this decision once in your life it is possible that you will make it a couple of times. Being prepared is always better so let’s talk about it in this article.

Upsizing is when you decide that your current living space is just too small and you want to buy a larger home. It doesn’t have to be a house it could be going from your parent’s home or an apartment to a condominium or your first house. It could be moving from a multifamily to a single family or from your first single family home to a larger single family home. In all of these cases you are expanding your space. 

Why? For most it is the need for increased space.  You could be a growing family with children or becoming a first time home owner.  You may have parents moving in with you and your children.  A change in careers or location can bring this question up. Success and the desire to improve your quality of life is another reason.  You may have added a pet to the family.  Office space, storage, a garage, and additional entertainment space are also reasons for upsizing.
