What’s Up with Downsizing?

For decades, the Canadian home- buying mantra was “bigger is better.” In the 1940s, average home size was well under 1,000 square feet. By the mid-1970s, the average home size grew to 1,075 square feet, growing rapidly in the 1980s, and peaking in the mid-2000s at 2,300 square feet.

That trend has reversed. In its most recent survey, the Canadian Home Builders Association pegged the average new home size at 1,900 square feet.

Does downsizing pique your interest? Whether you’re an empty nester, looking for less upkeep, want an urban dwelling, or just ready for a change, downsizing to a smaller home can be painless.
