The housing market has been a hot topic of conversation ever since the pandemic. The market is up, home equity is up, and interest rates are up. Sometimes people find themselves thinking about moving to take advantage of the equity in their home to upgrade or even if they should consider downsizing heading towards retirement and investing some of that equity.
