A cousin who has a big house sold it when he retired. His reason is there are only 2 of them, he and his wife, so they do not need a big house. He bought a small land in the suburbs and had built a bungalow with 2 bedrooms. It is a nice home that is cozy. He also has a big savings from the proceeds of the sale because his new home costs just about a third of the amount of the sale.
