I’m 70 and I have thought about downsizing. I likely will someday but I want it to be my choice. Not imposed on me by others.

Christian, husband, father, granddaddy, son, American. Here I stand. I can do no other. God help me.

Not only milenials but old people also. I am 81 years old and I sold my
house about 5 years ago and moved to an apartment because I could no
longer maintain the house because of infirmity. I let the
suiperintendent worry about maintenance. Yes, I am paying for it, but
it's worth it.
