DON'T LOSE MONEY, USE A PROFESSIONAL

Ask yourself this question:
"Why would you gamble with your largest asset?"  Selling a home without using a professional is doing just this. 
Would you hire a lawyer who charged far less than the industry standard or who didn't have proven results? Who you invest your money with a brand new investment banker or do it yourself using an app?  
No! The same logic applies when hiring someone to sell you home. Let's take the example of Karen and Sarah.
Karen and Sarah own a very similar home on the same street. They both decide to sell....
KAREN:
Karen is worried about paying an agent  a percentage of her sale price because she feels like that is a lot of money to spend on commission. Karen decides to hire the agent that offered her the lowest rate of commission.

Decide Where You Want To Go
What are your future needs and wants in a home? What is important to you about where you move to (i.e. community, access to shopping etc.)? What is it about your home now that you find unnecessary? 
Once you know some of these answers you will be able to make a plan, decide on a timeline, and move toward your goal.
Start Early
When it comes to downsize and decluttering, give yourself plenty of time for the process. Don't try to sort out your entire house in one weekend. Take it one room and a time and take breaks. If you aren't/ ...
