It can also be driven by a change in lifestyle, such as seeking a larger backyard, proximity to better schools, or a move to a more desirable neighbourhood, ultimately enhancing your quality of life.

Empty nesters often choose to downsize as their children leave home, seeking a smaller, more manageable home that better suits their current needs and lifestyle, while potentially unlocking home equity.
