Climbing the stairs every day is not so bad right now but what about in a few years. Will they still want to keep all that up? There are other problems that sellers face when downsizing. What to do with all the stuff that has accumulated over the years. After having lived in a home for many years the amount of stuff that is accumulated can be staggering. The daunting task of dealing with this can be debilitating.
