Are you ready for a smaller living space?

 A bigger home may not be better after all. After increasing and leveling off in recent years, the square footage for new single-family homes has continued to decrease since the fourth quarter of 2016. This ongoing trend marks a reversal of the McMansions of the late 90's and early 2000's and is highlighted by TV shows such as HGTV's Tiny House Hunters. So, whether it is because your children have grown and moved out, or you simply want a smaller space to clean, there are several good reasons to downsize your home. Check out Houzz and Freshome to see their articles regarding the advantages of living small!
